never had any problems with any of the fish that have come out of Port Washington I've also given them to friends and they said they were great

Quick question, do any of you eat the fish you catch out of any harbors or power plants? I have heard that in the winter browns produce a fatty acid that is poisonous when consumed. I kept the little one anyway because it was clean and had no fat on it anyway. I have eaten fish out of Port Washington power plant, Milwaukee harbor and Oak Creek power plant. I have never had a problem with any fish taking out of Lake Michigan except the real old gnarly browns in the Milwaukee harbor I let go. I have given fillets to friends to and everyone said they were great. Just wondering what your thoughts are on keeping harbor/power plant fish. Thanks

Took a buddy to the power plant on Sunday. It was really cold but we braved it for a few hours. The usual guys that fish in front of the condos were nailing them, supposedly on minnows. We were fishing on the wall closest to the power plant and had a hard time playing the wind and the current but we made the best of it. I ended up catching a little 2 pounder with many more missed. Saw plenty more swim by, the water was crystal clear. I was using a darter head jig with gulp smelt. Planning on going out on next sunday.

PS, I recently ordered a pair of Strike King S11 sunglasses and I have to tell you guys, they are a must for any kind of angling. The difference is night and day with their polarized lenses. I could see straight to the bottom of the harbor and they helped my spot lots of fish. Order a pair!

Was out on Friday the 20th and lost 3 and caught a real nice 9 pound brown, all on spawn. The fishing has been spotty but pretty good over all. I fish down here almost every day.

I kind of agree with chintastic, except for skein coho eggs are by far the best with chinook and rainbow in second. Brown eggs are best for spawn sacs as they are much smaller and have a harder time putting off scent. That being said as far as color goes sometimes it really doesnt matter. I've gone as far as making my own colors and have caught fish on every color. Salmon are much more scent oriented than sight and that's what really matters. I highly recommend pautzke's procure or fire cure, the stuff with the krill. My favorite color is also the pink, but red and natural both have their moments. To learn how to best cure eggs look up the video pautzke's has put up on youtube. Thats almost exactly how I cure my eggs. Hope that helps, Blitz

personal preference...natural (no cure straight from the fish) and red are my favorites, but just like people say brown eggs are better over chin eggs and rainbow eggs are better than coho eggs. To me its how the skein is presented, how well its cured, and depth make more of a difference. Play with some cures and find what works best for you!

During the salmon run I met a few guys that let me use some cured skein and I'm hooked. I would like to cure my own and would like input on what color works best? I've seen red, pink, orange. On the procure website there are different colors like glo orange or fluorescent orange. What colors do you guys use? Also what about the borax?

I have never seen anyone ice fish ports harber they do get ice but the ice never gets more than 1 to 2 inches and the water temp changes from day to day and when we energy is pumping warm water into the lake I would not trust that ice unless you want to be the first to fall in I would not recommend it

you could try in the marina, but the water discharge, ice eaters, and heavy currents that roll in the inner harbor keeps most of the area open year round. I personally wouldn't trust any of the ice in and around port, if you want browns just go cast in the open water for them, some of the best fishing is now.

goodfishin!

Does anybody ice fish in the harbor? Looking to give it a shot. What would I expect to catch? What baits are typically used? Any info on fishing in the harbor would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Loon

Was there last week with one hit and miss and one follow up with no luck but few people were catching smaller trout under float with spawn or minnow, so there is fish but must try different technics tight lines!
