Quick Report from last night:

Headed out to 100 ft of water and set up going out.  Fished 530-7p out to 160 ft with no action.

Marked some fish the deeper we went but tight to bottom.

Couldn't get temp readings on the depth raider unfortunately with the coating coming off my cable and running deep.

Any tips for silver fish late in the season? or should I winterize the boat?

Team Sea Dog had them dialed in again this morning. Caught a variety of Kings, Rainbows and Lake Trout in 240 of 280 feet of water just north of town. All spoons on a variety of colors fished 60 feet to the surface. Also caught some nice Kings and Cohoes around the harbor this weekend as well.

Had a good day out deep. We caught 7. Missed many more. Had 4 on at once, with two in the boat that did not turn out so good. All caught on spoons. Color did not seam to matter. When the wind changed to the south so did the bite.

Out today and tried the deeper water. Was marking fish and got 2 on but lost them on the surface and then it was getting a little ruff for a small boat so I worked the harbor and picked up a nice 4 year old in front of the light house. Saw a few other fish being caught as well. When I was at the cleaning station I talked to 2 guys that did real good out deep.

As all are aware, this has been one of the best fishing seasons to date here in Sheboygan. It has also been the best year for "Big Fish" as well. Make sure to register your fish in the local clubs fishing contest for your chance to win up to $500. The Sheboygan Area Great Lakes Sport Fishing Club contest ends October 31st. The "Big Fish Board" contest which is open to all anglers and awards a trophy ends December 31st. Current standings board is located at the Wharf. Best of luck to all. Here is a short video of some of the larger fish our guests caught this season.

I talked to 3 wardens in July and they said you needed the paper print out if out trolling, but not if you are shore fishing. This is not in the regulations for this year so they were going to overlook it until new regulations are printed.

Well then it makes the whole paperless system pointless. I'd rather carry the little green card than a big old sheet of paper. Lol. Idk maybe i'm just being stubborn but I thought thats why they were going to the paperless system was so that people didn't have to keep getting reprints all the time and it was more cost efficient for the places that sell permits and licenses.

I ran into that a while back as well, but the warden was cool about it. Apparently the rule is you still have to carry the paper receipt slip thing when fishing any boundary waters.

Question for pier rats like myself. I was fishing Kewaunee Pier last night and I had a guy come up to me and tell me that we still have to have a paper copy of our fishing licence and trout stamps present at all times? I thought that all they had to do was look up our drivers licenses? Is that not what the whole paperless system was made for? Anyone help me out with this. I plan on going back out this weekend but i'll have to get a re-print if I have to have paperwork on me. Any help is appreciated..

300 FOW is 7 miles. When I was out there last week I checked on the GPS. I was south out from the power plant. I think if your farther north you have to be out farther.

Near shore for cast is for under 5 miles. 300 fow is about 10 miles out of sheboygan.

If the wind blows from the east in any direction the waves are unprectable. Even south or norTh winds can make it wavy in a hurry

Hit the water in the Sheboygan harbor at 5:45am Sat.  We drove 130 miles from Mauston Wi. to hit the salmon.  WELL, the weather people who said one to two footers lie.  We faced an southeast wind of  10 mph with swells of five feet or more.  Making it out to 300 ft was a battering chore.  Trolling was an up and down trial and after two hours we boated a very small king on a green spoon down 25.  We finally gave it up. Went in and talked to other fishermen and they said "slow is an understatement"  My big gripe is with the nearshore marine forecasters.  They missed big time.  Ed and Lee
