Fast paced fishing action on Tuesday. We had plenty of doubles, hooking up with rainbows and coho salmon, and caught everything but a brown trout. We started fishing in 60 foot of water off the power plant and worked the 60 to 100 foot range all day long. We had our best action using the smaller orange dodgers with J-flies by JK tackle. Our best action was on our diver rods and planner boards. I posted a short video of our mornings trip. My first mate claims I worked him like a rented mule.

I was wondering where the nets are located, or have they moved them to the south already? Is there a up to date site a person can look at so they know where they are? If not could someone give the GPS coordinates where they are located I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you in advance.

A great week on the big lake with a three man limit, some nice Kings and fishing with former Green Bay Packers place kicker Chester Marcol! The Coho's have arrived early to the Sheboygan area. We are also landing Kings, Lakers and Rainbows too while fishing south of town. Water depths of 50 to 100 foot are working well for my six boats while fishing the top 25 to 50 foot range. Stinger spoons still seem to be the best for all of these fish. We are taking a few fish on rotating flashers or dodger and flies as well. Have fun and good luck fishing!

Report is for Wednesday May 18th.

Dropped lines at 3:30 PM 3 miles north of port in 35 fow. Had a 8 line spread with 6 spoons and 2 flicker chads.

4 planers out with 1-3 color lead.

2 slide divers 50-70 loc.

2 downriggers 15-25 down.

From 3:30-7 PM we fished 30-60 fow as far south as the power plant without a single hit the whole time. Turned back north to finish the evening trolling the pier heads. A lot of alewives are out from the pier heads and in the harbor. As the sun was setting we had our only two hits of the day and they were both kings.

1st hit was on a magnum cracked ice pro king swr on the rigger down 20 ft.

30 seconds after that blue knight on a 3 color took off. Despite getting tangled with one of the dipsy rods we were still able to get both kings in. They were in the 7-9 lb range and both were wild.

Beautiful night on the water thats for sure and the two kings just made it that much better!

Tight lines

Skippy

Thanks Eyeslayer for the positive report. Indeed, this season's early action has been quite promising. Was your afternoon success north, south, or straight out? I'm taking out a special friend tomorrow morning.

We fished right outside the pier heads this weekend. A record low temperature cold front moved through our area and the fishing was tough. The bait fish (alewives) are still heavy in and outside our harbor. We still managed to catch some nice kings and cohos on stick baits and spoons on 2 color lead cores. Join my crew and I for the 12th annual “Ride a Charter Boat Day” this Tuesday starting at 6:00 pm. Free boat rides & salmon recipes sponsored by the Sheboygan Area Great Lakes Sport Fishermen’s club membership. This is always a fun time with family & friends.

Brown Trout fishing north of town past the golf course is producing the most numbers of fish for us lately. North point to the Pigeon River and the harbor area is a good area for more King Salmon action. There is plenty of baitfish (Alewife) near the harbor area and along the bottom up north. Spoons still seem to work the best for us off the boards, riggers and diver rods in 10 to 40 feet of water at 2.2 to 2.4 mph on the gps. Good luck fishing!

We’ve been fishing the harbor area the last few days and had some success catching some good sized king salmon. I’ve observed tons of alewives in and around our harbor area all week. We also caught some brown trout and a coho salmon. No real fishing pattern to report on, but most of our fish have all been caught on the planner boards. Join my crew and I for FREE boat rides next week Tuesday beginning at 6:00 pm. along the riverfront. The Sheboygan Area Great Lakes Sport Fishermen’s club is sponsoring the 12th annual “Ride a Charter Boat Day”. Free boat rides aboard club member charter boats and a variety of salmon recipes. It’s fun for kids of all ages. Watch a short video of some of yesterdays fishing action.

Fishing remains very good off the Port of Sheboygan. The fish seem to be in the same areas even after windy conditons yesterday. Water depths of 10 to 20 feet north of town is producing a variety of different size trout and salmon. Spoons still seem to be be the bait of choice for us on one color of leadcore, dipsy or slide divers and downriggers. The harbor area has been slower because of all the baitfish near the gap area.

Good Luck Fishing!
