Fished the lake this past weekend out of Sheboygan from Friday evening till Sunday afternoon. I have been fishing the lake for about 10 years now, my buddy who I was with has been fishing the lake for about 30 years. Between the two of us we have damn near every spoon, j-plug, crank bait, dodger/flasher and fly you can think of. I was even trying fresh cut plugs this trip. The whole weekend we only had one fish on.(which we unfortunately lost) Since we were staying overnight there we spoke with a lot of boats coming off of the water. Out of all the boats we talked to, we only know of 2 salmon caught. I would check the fish cleaning station every time we came back to the launch and it was bone dry every time. Not once did we see a net in anyone's hands and that is including the charter boats, recreational fishing boats and the fisherman on the break walls. Where are all the salmon? I have never left that lake with no fish. Usually on a slow trip we end up with at least 5 or 6 fish for the weekend and other boats did about the same too. Where are the salmon? Have we done to the salmon what we have done to the perch? The DNR really needs to re-evaluate how to manage these lakes and rivers if there is only going to be more and more people fishing every year. Look at the equipment that we use these days in comparison to 30 years ago. The fish don't hardly stand a chance. I think that better stocking efforts are in order of game fish and bait fish. Maybe daily limits should be lowered as well. Maybe only 1 or 2 rods per person. We are done with Lake Michigan for a while. Sad that the 5th largest freshwater lake has become such a desert. -Pete Crying

I can see your problem you need to fish when they are active dawn and dusk

Went out with my dad the last two nights (Tue, and Wed). First night stayed in Sheboygan all night got one 6lb Laker out of the lakeside. Missed two more bites throught the early morning around 4ish then went to help a guy net a brown and heard one of my bells going like crazy but with the pier being wet i didn't run because I didn't want to slip so I missed one there around 5:30 in the morning. No more action after that Tuesday night. Headed to Kewaunee for the first part of Wednesday night where we missed 3 bites then decided to try to make it back to Sheboygan for the morning bite and went back out to the South pier and the weather changed and wind started picking up and we started getting wet so we packed up and left. See you guys out there Saturday evening. Can't miss me the License plates say T1G3R....Have a great night guys...

Fished this morning with a buddy in and around the harbor. We went 5 for 8. 2 Cohos and 3 Kings. All but one of our hits came on boards with plugs. I landed my biggest Coho of the year at 9.13# we lost one that was even bigger as well. Took a short break and went back out with two buddies this afternoon. Boat traffic was heavy and bait was thick and fishing wasnt as good. We had a drive by, lost one nice ripper, and caught one small Coho. All bites were on stick baits. We saw one charter hook up a double and a few pier guys hook up but over all it seemed to be slow. Ive never seen bait so thick....

More great King Salmon action here off the Port of Sheboygan this entire week. My six boats are working the harbor area and crankbaits off the boards, while spoons or plugs on the riggers or diver rods are taking some nice fish. This good bite should continue with the number of baitfish in the area along with good stained river water flowing out into the lake. Good luck fishing!
