Just a great day on the water with Chester Marcol, Dan Small, Chuck Miesfeld and the rest of our crew. We fished south of town in 90 to 150 feet of water while boating good numbers of fish on flasher fly combinations and spoons. A good trolling speed for us at the ball down 50 feet is 2.2 to 2.4 mph. We ended today with a nice fry-out on my riverfront deck and we are back at it again tomorrow with all 6 of my boats. Be safe in the fog, travel slow if you don't have radar and good luck fishing!

Someone jumped their boat over the South Pier last night. They hit the pier at an angle, where the slants start, jumped it up onto the last section of flats, and skidded into the harbor. There are drag marks of fiberglass out there and I recovered some chunks of the boat's hull. I didn't see it happen. I just saw the aftermath.

It is REALLY getting dangerous to be a pier fisherman with knuckleheads at the helm...lol. Just sayin' I mean...all that lake and we have two serious incidents of people hitting piers this year? Call me perplexed...

I guess I had better include a helmet and some body armor to my fishing gear. ;)

Late report from this weekend. Friday morning we went 2 for 5. The two we caught were on plugs north of town in 50 ft of water. Cant keep the rainbows hooked up. Three color lead with spoons produced the rainbow strikes while 5 color with plugs took the kings. Went sunday afternoon/evening and went 2/2. Both kings one natural one planted. 4 and 5 color leadcore with plugs took the fish. Want to get out tomorrow but not gonna risk it in the fog.

Fished tonight in thick fog. Wasnt worth it. Trolled in the harbor and outside the pierheads and up past north point. We marked some fish but only got 1 King to bite he came on a No.3 plug on a board. We had one other short hit as well on a No.4 plug. Shouldve went out past the fog for Trout instead...when we came in the fog thinned a bit to see and lots of people on south pier and did not see any stringers...

I fished everyday this past week, and most days from sunrise to sunset. I fished through wind, rain, fog and cold water in search of some trophy salmon for our fishing guests here in Sheboygan. We targeted the harbor early mornings and evenings trolling j-plugs on our planner boards. Afternoons we traveled offshore in 100 to 150 feet of water in search of some rainbows, cohos and lake trout. Water temperatures are still in the forties and there’s plenty of bait fish in and near the Sheboygan harbor. Multiple hookups have been common lately when the fish are active. Here are just a few of the fish we landed this week. I posted many of our big fish photos on my facebook page. This is how we Sheboygan!

Mark the harbor entrance 100 yds out from the actual entrance.Go to to that pt first.Many accidents happen because boaters mark there gps point inside or just at the entrance. Captain Scott

Bonger,

Stationary objects which are marked on gps are the least of your worries. If the fog is thick you won't see a boat until you are just about to run into it. Horns are great but often hard to tell where the sound is coming from. Even with radar it is no fun to fish in the fog. You can't change course in an instant without screwing up your lines. My rule is to stay in when I can't see where I'm going. No fish is worth colliding with another boat. Good luck. Stay safe.

This is my first year trolling out there and I am learning alot each trip. Havn't fished in foggy conditions yet so I was looking for a few tips. Planning on bringing my spotlight to help let other boats no where I am. Boat has a loud horn which I will be sounding often. Plan to fish shallow but away from the harbor to avoid boat traffic. I have all bouys marked on gps and a saved trail back to the harbor. Is there anything else I should be aware of? Plan on putting boat in at 330 am. Thanks.
