Went back for my weekly dose of reality. Put in at 430pm, set lines in 50 fow, mosied out to 95 fow. We were lucky to set the hooks deep into a 10" monster, dragged that for a spell??? Then after a flurry of changes made in the spoon dept we managed a rainbow that was the same size as a tube sock with sand in it. We stayed until dark, marked a dozen or so fish near the bottom. Im sure I wont miss the chance next week to re-new my love for the sport. So until then, tight lines, it may be a snag!

We’ve fished from sunrise to sunset the past several days and experienced a variety of weather and fishing conditions. The fog has been a reoccurring issue all year with our colder than normal water temperatures. Today it was clear. We caught a number of kings, rainbows and lake trout this weekend. Most of the fish were taken in the top 60 feet of the water column. We've been fishing from 100 to 160 feet of water. This weekend we experimented with herring strips trolled behind flashers on copper line rods. Some of the trips this was really productive. This Wednesday we will be participating in the women's Powder Puff Derby. Pictured below is the catch from a 2 boat group we ran this Saturday. I posted a number of videos from this years fishing trips at: http://www.sheboyganfishingreports.com/video.html

We fished all morning and afternoon Saturday in some fog and a very calm lake. We caught fish as shallow as 110 ft but did better in 235 to 250. We did not however run into any real king bite. We had 3 lakers, 3 bows, 1 coho and 1 king. The top thirty with board and 3 color and high dipsy's took almost all the fish. Wire divers and rigger's were dead. Orange spoons ruled the day. Good luck to everyone.

The weather report is looking good for tomorrow. Despite the foggy overcast conditions today fishing was good here off the port of Sheboygan. Good luck fishing as we will see you on the water!

Looks like some nice water today and more coming tomorrow! Good king salmon fishing to be had out of Sheboygan right now in 120-180 ft of water. Flasher/fly combos from 30ft-80ft down have been best. Steelhead are being caught in the top 30 on standard size spoons in mostly orange or uv patterns. Get out there and enjoy some of the good fishing there is right now.

Now back to fishing for the rest of us,we fished straight out then south 4 miles or more. Quite a number of boats, saw one net get washed. We managed 2 for our effort, fishing until dark. I was watching the locator most of the trip and didnt see any hooks (again). Dropped lines in 120ft and made it out to 240, zig-zagging the whole trip. Changed set-ups numerous times,tried 2 color and everything up to 9 color. Nothing on riggers, or dipsys. Upon loading up, only one boat out of the mass that came and "A" fish was cleaned. * One popular charter was there with 5 fish. When asked a question about their trip, I became the enemy. The take away from this is dont ask, dont tell and its called fishing! Good luck to all!

A foggy start but a sunny finish for 70 people aboard 12 boats this morning as we basically had the lake to ourselves. This company outing, which is one of my largest groups take to the water and land a nice catch or trout & salmon. Afterwards a big boardwalk fry-out. A great day had by all! All boats worked 100 to 150 feet of water south of town. Pro Kings, Stinger Spoons and Flasher Fly Combinations worked well for most. Trolling speeds at the ball down 60 feet was 2.2 mph at 44 degrees. A couple warm days like today should warm up that lake water and make for an even better fish bite. Good luck fishing!

This past week has been awesome for "D-Limit" on the pond. We have had good success in 140 to 260 straight out of the harbor. pretty much everything was caught on flasher flies, lt green, super uv, white boards, most fish have been caught in the 50-30 ft deep, copper and riggers. with a few of them coming 30-50 ft off the bottom. we brought in 4 last sat, 12 on sun and had a nice 23lb slob with four others last night. Good luck to all and stay safe out there!

Wackyrigswag, awesome report, I have lived here my whole life and the awesome fishing season here in Sheboygan on the "big pond" is why I tolerate the hard winters! Glad you got a taste of it! I would recommend that the next time you venture this way you stop at Anglers Avenue on south pier. This is by far the biggest and best supplied tackle store for lake Michigan in Wisconsin! The owner's name is Russel and he is a great source of info, he fishes the lake almost as much as I do and is very honest and open about current fishing "tips". Good luck and tight lines to you!

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

Hey guys I'm planning to head to Sheboygan for this weekend and I'm wondering if anyone knows of a campsite or something close to the harbor to stay for the weekend. Any suggestions or comments would be greatly appreciated.

I’ve been on the water now for days and catching a good variety of Kings & Rainbows. I’ve been fishing from 120 to 200 feet of water straight out of the harbor. Flat lines trolling silver or red rattlesnakes and wire diver rods with flasher flies have again been the most productive for us. Here is a short video of some of our fast paced fishing action our trip recorded July 4, 2014:

Sunday morning by myself 3/5 with 20 lb. king, 5 lb. rainbow and small laker. Spoons were deadsville. All bites came on flasher/fly green, blue or any combination. Started south of town 120-180 FOW but all bites were north of town in 170. Downrigger at 96 took big king. Water temp down there was 39.5. Everything else on boards with 2 color and 4 color.

By the way, this is the 2nd lake trout I've caught on board with 3 or 4 colors out. What are the lakers doing up so high?
