FISHING REPORT
5/21/15 1:15 PM CST
Conditions: Sunny Air Temp: 51° - 55° F
WWW- I fished this morning and was 2/3. All Coho. It's slow fishing. I fished 4 hours this morning and all bites were within a 15 minute period when a school happened by. Tried Monday and Tuesday with similar results. One place in the harbor and canal is as good as the next. Either you try to find them by moving around or wait and hope. They're always on the move and not holding to a spot. Wondering

W.W.W. not a current report but fish can usually be found off the piers depending on wind and weather conditions. I plan on fishing the harbor this weekend as well. this is a good time of year for shore fishing. I suggest fishing the south pier of the harbor or off the rocks to the south casting blue silver, green silver or orange gold little cleos. these are long standing favorite baits. other lures of course will produce as well. soaking a large shiner off the bottom,spawn sack or white tube jig tipped with a bit of shrimp or wax worm about 6 feet under a bobber also can produce. good luck

Is it possible for this debate could be taken to the forums please.

Some of us like to see fishing reports and possibly share tactics and not try to prove who does or does not know the rules.

I am not looking to start any trouble here,but this thread was actually started by and meant for us lowly shore fisherman.

Thank you! good luck and good fishing! Big Smile

Big Chewie, There is a difference between daily creel limit which is 5 in aggregate for both states and possesion limits wich is no more than 2 daily creel limits. As for traveling between states as long as you label the packaged fish from another state you are allowed to fish in Wisconsin waters for the same species , but you must have a license for both states you fished. You're right about too much hassle. I only asked because it doesn't happen too often that I get my limit so quickly! And I really wanted to fish more be cause I don't get to fish very much ,seemed like it took me longer to get to my spot where I got them than the actual time to catch them.

seems to be a lot of confusion of what are "boundary waters" versus the Great Lakes,,,Lake Michigan and Superior and Green Bay are not "boundary waters" each has there own seperate rules

Zen,

You would have to put in on one side of the line, catch your fish, return and go across the border by land, put in and catch a limit there and return there if you were to try that trick. They will not let you return with two limits for yourself just because you have an Illinois license there is no way to prove you caught them in Illinois water. Probably not worth the hassle.

Pink Eye, I am a charter captain, have been for years, there is a reason we don't fish Illinois water without an Illinois license. If you have a gps equipped locator, you will see a dotted line just north of Winthrop Harbor running east-west, it is the state line and it does matter. Like many things in life, ignorance of the law our a boundary is no excuse in the eyes of the law.

There is a simple and fun way for you to prove me wrong. Take your Wisconsin license south of the line this weekend, catch your five fish and go find yourself an Illinois warden and tell him how wrong we all are. Report back on Monday.

As for fishing, the cohos are in and it is going good now ladies and gents, go get em!

Pike eyes: you're absolutely wrong as far as your claim that there are no boundaries between states water. Coming from north point marina most illinois anglers are very much aware of where the state boundaries are, because the wisconsin DNR constantly checks for licenses once you cross the border. There is a very definitive latitude / longitude coordinates that separate the 2 states,make sure you don't drift across it without both licenses while fishing.

The initial question I put out was whether I could keep a daily creel limit for both states on the same fishing trip. I now have an answer to that question. I can't have on my possession more than the daily bag limits WHILE ON THE WATER.

If I wanted to fish across the border and get my daily creel limit for both states, I must first take the first limit in my vehicle and label which state I caught the fish from; then I can catch a limit for the other state, but I must label and date the container that I place it in. Got this answer from someone that got a Citation for keeping 2 daily creel limits while on the water fishing.

I still am apprehensive about doing it though!!!!

they have it simplified but you people want to make it hard. If there were separate limits and sizes and such per the big pond there would be latitude and longitude numbers in the regulations. In case you haven't been out there, there aren't painted lines separating the states. Wink
