Yes it’s true; it’s been very tough fishing this month. I’ve been on the water everyday last week and struggled to get the fish to bite. The majority of the week there was very little boat traffic and most days I may have been the only boat on the water. The unusually cold water temperature this year and the abundance of alewives have put a damper on the areas sport fishing. I went as far as postponed a couple of trips this week for those that had that option. Many experienced fishermen have come in with an empty cooler this month including myself. The good news is things can only get better, and in many cases the fishing can change very rapidly. There’s plenty for our fish to eat, and most likely we’ll see some huge fish again like last year. Here is a short video of some of this month’s fishing highlights:

Life support may be in order, we drove down to the lake yesterday and there wasnt a boat out. We also noticed the charters were all tucked in too. Crying

This thread is very quiet. Too Quiet. My sources say we are off to a really bad start. Hopefully warmer water will get things going. When Charters talk about 2 fish...... you know it has been tough. Mrt.

A good start to this morning with a pair of nice fish. The past week we have been finding fish south of town in water depths of 60 to 120 feet of water. This much needed warm weather and calm conditions should continue to warm up the big lake water temperatures here off the port of Sheboygan. Good luck fishing as we will see you on the water!

Stoped down by boat landing this morning talked to fella coming in . He said he was casting by Power Plant and the shad were so thick that he was snagging them when he would cast . He did not stay long very cold and it was Mothers Day . If this is so than there should be a good year . Plenty of food .

so chintastic, you feel you know more about the forage population on lake michigan based on eyeslayer stating that they are starting to wash up on shore than the dnr does in all it's work and studies? not to mention, eyeslayer gave the correct reason as to why the die off is happening this time of the year. i get so sick of the negativity towards the dnr. they have done a tremendous job to balance the stocking with the amount of forage. what we have seen the last few years is a lake that still gives up a good quantity of fish with the number of big fish increasing greatly. we've also seen the bait-fish population rebound and stabilize. i'll gladly take a few less fish, with better size, to ensure we don't go through a bait-fish crash that results in terrible fishing like we saw in the distant past. THANK YOU to the dnr (and the clubs) for helping to make lake michigan, in my opinion, the best trout/salmon fishery in the world.

Buddy said there spawning now....they got a 40% to 60% mortality rate when they spawn, thus explains why there all big ones washing up i guess he said. Makes sense. Time to go out deep.

Happy Spring from the Happy Hooker! Our vessel has awoken from her winter nap and is ready to find fish for the grill. A cold harsh winter has made the fish hungry for spring feeding. A few spring trips have already produced a mixed bag of species surrendering themselves to Happy Hookers deck including nice Lake and Brown Trout.. If you have been waiting for the ice to melt so can fish from a boat on beautiful Lake Michigan, now is the time. Round up the posse, fill the coolers and live the lake life! Find us at: charterhappyhooker.com or 920-980-5286. Remember lake linkers always receive $25 dollars off their trip (offer not valid with any other offer).

The Brown trout were in very shallow water over weekend.Reachable with waders and off south pier.Murky water is ideal for these real shallow fish.Small silver spoons are best.

Fishing was a little tougher this week than the previous for us. We were on the water the past several days mainly fishing the harbor area in 20 to 30 feet of water. We also tried north of town near the Pigeon River with similar results. We caught a few brown trout, lake trout and chinook salmon. The brown trout generally hit a variety of stick baits trolled behind planner boards, while the lake trout and kings took standard sized pro-kings trolled on downriggers and diver rods. The shoreline water is still cloudy and cold from 39 to 43 degrees. All the kings were caught near the harbor area for us. The Sheboygan Area Great Lakes Sport Fishing Club will again be sponsoring the annual “Ride a Charter Boat Day” scheduled for Tuesday May 20th beginning at 6:00 pm on the boardwalk (weather permitting). Area charter captain members will be offering free boat rides to the public all evening long as well as a variety of grilled and smoked salmon recipes for you to try. This is a great opportunity to visit with area guides and enjoy a fun evening along our boardwalk.

The weekend may have been cold & wet but the fish didn't seem to mind. Fished just out of the harbor and to the south in 20 feet of water all morning long. Caught 13 trout Sunday morning using a variety of spoons and stick baits. Every rod on the boat had a bite but two. Water was cloudy and the temperature ranged between 44 and 46 degrees.
