FISHING REPORT

Conditions: Sunny Air Temp: 76° - 80º F Water Temp: 51° - 55° F
It looks like the Port of Sheboygan is producing many shallow water big fish the past few days for many anglers. My boats have been working 30 to 70 feet of water straight out and north of town. King's, Browns and Rainbows are mainly coming on Pro Kings, Yeck Spoons and Stinger Spoons. Dave's Ka-Booms, Thundersticks and a few J-Plugs or Silver Hordes are taking some quality fish as well. We are hoping for another good week of warm calm weather to warm up the big lake temperatures. Good luck fishing.

What a weekend !!!! Calm sea's sunny warm weather and the fish were biting, that's as good as it gets !!

Friday's report - We started at 100 fow and hit our first fish in 110 fow. We just kept picking away at them staying out in front of the Kohler plant. 120 to 145 fow after the sun came up seemed the best. We had almost all fish on spoons except a few lakers that took flasher/fly combo's. 3 color lead on boards and dipsy's set at 75 loc did the work. We ended up 11 for 12 with a mixture of kings, rainbows & lakers. Green & silver pro king spoons and gold & orange stingers were the ticket. We also had the birthday boy Marco with us to bring us the good luck ! HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARCO !!

Saturday - Same program , 2 person team, went 7 for 9

Sunday - The word was out on the shallow bite. We slept in and started in 40 fow just north of town. We fished for 3 hours and went 2 for 5. One nice king and a 7 lb brown trout. Downriggers, side divers and boards all got hit. Again a spoon bite. Good luck to everyone.

If anyone is still interested the fishing nets right now they are five miles south in 60 to 110 feet of water. Here is the link to explain more if you like.

Fished Saturday all day from 60 to 300 feet. Slow was the word for the day. The few bites we got were on a two color with a j-plug.

I have read a lot of reports where it is being said that there is too much bait fish out there. That is just not true. Years ago there was 90% more alewives in the lake, yet we still caught a lot more fish. The cold winter, the cool spring has resulted in the lake not setting up right this summer. Plus the reduced stocking of kings is having an effect on the fishing this year too. I also have a theory that too many 3 year olds are harvested during the late summer and fall, so there is not as many 4 year old kings for the following year.

Just a theory, but there is definitely not too many bait fish out there.

Good luck to everyone.

With partners out-of-town or unavailable, I fished the last two days solo (3 line limit). Things have improved. Today (Friday) I hooked and netted three very nice rainbows in 70-80 fow north of the Pigeon, all on orange and orange/gold standard Pro Kings, off boards with 2 and 3-color LC. (Unfortunately, the first decided to cross my 6-color as it approached the net. Though I brought it in, I had a "cluster f" that wasted an hour. On the second, my multi-flex Speidel watch band caught my Power Pro line as I was releasing the board. It shredded the line; as it broke, I was able to grab the "fish end", wrap it around my arm, and net the fish hand-over-hand. The third (11 pounder) came in nicely after 10 minutes). I quit. Lots of meat to package. Lots of lead core to work on in the back yard. Thursday was similar, but 2 of the rainbows became unbuttoned after a short fight; only 1 netted. Same setup, 85 fow a little north.

first time fishing this port last night Thursday 6-17. fishing was extremely slow.manage one king in 2 hours that one fish was on a ten color with a meat rig . best reportI heard was 3 for six in sixty seventy feet in water. We were in 70 to 90 area just north of harbor. Note to the guy that backed into to my boat with the newer Alumacraft 18 footer and black pickup having trouble loading you put a big dent in my boat several hundred dollars damage next time you hit someone stop and fess up what you did. I know your wife's aunt and my daughters but they were busy trying to get out of your way. thanks a bunch not a very good display of sportsmanship

Are there still commercial fishing nets in the water that a troller should avoid? If so what water depths and general location. THANKS

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.
