Sheboygan paid off big last week!!! July 3-5 Took my wife and kids out for a three day trip Never fished Sheboygan befor. Stopped by the Wharf for some intel. They were very nice but a little tight lipped with advice. We fished three times from around 4pm til dark. Thursday we went 7 for 12 (need to train the kids a bit more) Friday we went 10 for 13 ( kids are learning) Saturday big wind to much for my 19 foot boat. We gave up after a few hours.(no boat control)
Report. We left the harbor and headed straight out past the bouys and started to set at 150 Continued straight out and and picked up first king at 200 we got to 250 and picked up a double. We turned north and stayed at aprox 265 Big kings ( over 20 lbs) all came off 100 foot riggers with 11" green flashers and green flies set 25 feet behind the ball. Trolling at 1.7 mph. 10 color lead with green glow spoon straight off the back paid off with several hits. High lines off boards with 3 and 6 color Lead were hot. Green or orange spoons were best.
No hits the entire trip on dipsy's. The stackers on the riggers only produced one King.( I only have two down riggers and stack one additional line 25 feet above ball.
From the talk at the fish cleaning station it seemes we out fished most others. Most boats were fishing much closer in than us.
Over all we went 17 for 25 with a good mix of big kings and Bows. Freezer is stuffed.
Hope this helps someone. Tight lines
