The near shore marine forecast for Lake Michigan also shows wave height and if there is small craft warning posted. Not always perfect but it is a good indication if it might be a lost cause to make the run down to the lake.
Port Washington (Lake Michigan), Ozaukee County
Took a walk on the Harbor Walk today. There is an amazing amount of bait in the harbor, shoals and shoals of alwives. Counted about a dozen boats working just outside the harbor and another dozen up north past the water treatment plant. Did not see any boats offshore on the horizon. Only a couple shore fisherman soaking alwives (did not appear to have caught any fish)
MOON PHASE (7%)
Started out this morning in shallow with only a couple bites pulled lines went deep not much happening for me. So I pulled lines again went back and worked the 30-40 f.o.w.,they finally turned on for me the last 1 1/2 of my trip. Ended with 8 and missed as many as we caught. Surface bird's and dipsys with little orange dodgers and peanut fly's worked best. Thanks again to my guy's had a great trip!!
