This is my first year fishing the big pond and this is what I have learned so far. 1 Things change almost every day. 2 Trolling speed and water temp. is key.  3 You can fish in higher winds if they are from the west.4 If the boats are scattered everyones looking for fish. 5 Its pretty easy to catch some fish it takes a lot of experience to catch a lot of fish. Most Michigan fisherman are very helpfull and will share knowledge. I want to thank Anglers Ave. for setting me up with great epuipment and showing me how to use it. Thier advice has been invaluable. Last thing I learned is that I still have lots to learn. good luck all I will see you on the pond. As for my report I went 4 for 5 yesterday morning in 85 - 95 ft of water. 115 on the mag dipsy 2 coho. orange spoon. 3 color with 10 oz. weight off board 2fish on proking white spoon. Also had a line spapper on the dipsy. No hits on the flasher fly.

King salmon beat down this morning. It was like hand to hand combat at times. The great fishing continues here in Sheboygan. After a little tougher than usual weekend due to a storm front, the fishing is again back to outstanding. We had fun fishing this morning with a group that has visited us several times. With the strong west winds the cooler water moved to our shoreline. We caught our limit of king salmon in just a few hours right outside our harbor. We also caught a couple of brown trout and a coho weighing in at 9 pounds. Spoons on downriggers and diver rods took the majority of fish. I posted several videos from this year of our fast paced fishing action including some great underwater footage on my facebook page link below.

Fished 6/26 afternoon in 65-150', best depth was 70-100' and mostly North of town, went 8 for 10 with 2 Lakers, 1 rainbow, 2 kings (one was a bit over 20#), & 3 coho. All on spoons, all in the top 50'. White seemed to be the best color, with a couple of magnum green/silver PK's taking fish as well. First few hours of cross-chop was a bit challenging to maintain speeds in the 2.1-2.5 range, but it calmed down nicely and turned into an awesome evening on the big pond.

Not a report this time but mark your calendars for the DNR Monday night June 27th meeting from 6-8 p.m. at LTC in Cleveland Wisconsin that is open to the public. Brad Eggold will inform us of the possible 2017 proposal and our WLBA team will be presenting a slide show with pictures and statistics. The Sheboygan Mayor along with many other business owners will be attending. We met in Kewaunee Wisconsin two days ago and had a great turnout with many suggestions and comments for Todd Kalich. The DNR is looking for our input and observations so this is the time to express your concerns as we are all catching plenty of healthy fish packed full of baitfish.

I’ve been on the water now for the past 12 straight days. The good fishing continues here in Sheboygan. We have been catching mostly coho salmon but are now getting a few kings on most trips. It seems as though the fish have been moving in closer to our shoreline. The past few trips we have been fishing in about 100 to 130 feet of water. Last Thursday the fishing was just plain crazy. We struggled to get just a few rods in the water catching 40 fish on our 2 boats during a mid day trip. I still have been getting some good action with our small dodgers on lead core planner boards, as well as downriggers set 40 to 80 feet deep with spoons. I posted several videos from this year of our fast paced fishing action including some great underwater footage on my facebook page link below.

Father's Day Weekend wrapped up today for us.  This weekends action was good.  Saturday, we had issues with the fish staying stuck going 8 for about 25 with our guests from Illinois.  Sunday, our guests from central Wisconsin boated a beautiful 14 fish catch.  Monday, the last trip that our guests had for our Father's Day Special, we battled strong westerly winds, but were up for the challenge.  We put 10 more in the boat including 5 nice kings.  

We have had our best action in 80-140 fow.  Saturday and Sunday we stayed south, away from the weekend boat traffic.  Monday, we moved north with little traffic.  Much of our action is coming on divers and down riggers.  Some action on coppers as well.  Some magnum spoons with a lot of flasher with A-Tom-Mik flies doing much of the damage.  Red coho dodger/flasher set-ups on nugget boards, 3 color and 5 colors still getting some fish, but the 8" flashers have been best for us.  

Definitely nice to see the kings showing up ready to eat.  We did have one coho today that had 27 alewife in its stomach.  The kings were stuffed as well.

Let the salmon games begin!!!  Good fishing and be safe on the water!!!

So the west wind blew all day, did it push warm water out and the colder water stayed in? I'm heading out in the AM and wonder if I should stay in closer, 60-80 FOW???? Been fishing in 160- 200 FOW

Out on the big pond for the first time in many years since I was a kid with a 'new to me' boat.

Ended up limiting out Friday evening on the maiden voyage with 3 kings and 7 cohos.  Found a good line of fish at 160'.  Black and Gold spoon connected a couple kings on a downrigger at 70'.  Coho rigs on dipsy's connected on most of the coho's.  Lost a couple rainbows on leadcore boards f/f's.

Went out again Saturday evening with a similar plan but with less success.  We ended up searching between 100-190 and picked up a few here and there but lost quite a few more...capped the day off with a dandy rainbow.

I look forward to learning more about fishing the big lake again.  Everyone's reports are invaluable and appreciated

What a differance a day makes! The good King bite was gone for us this morning, and the fish were on a very neutral pattern from what i could tell! Lot's of lost fish, and hooks falling off in the net! Think the full moon did us in, but we still managed some Hawg Coho, nice Steelhead, and a King and Laker! 11 for 23 ish.........in 125 to 140 fow with most bites coming 40 -75 feet down on a combination of spoons and flasher/fly's!!!! N.B.K, Flasher/fly, and a  Blue Hulk on a 110 copper were the stud rods taking half the bites!!
