Summer is generally for perch under the bridge until about September when trout and salmon start showing back up. You can still pick up trout once in awhile.

Hey folks I'm new to town and was just curious about the time frame for fishing here in Milwaukee during the summer. Is there anything to be had at the Hoan bridge during the summer or should I be looking at inland rivers/lakes? Interested in any gamefish. Thank you!!

Whitefish rig.... Small silver Swede tipped with gulp minnow as the weight and small gulp minnow on a #6 octopus hook about a foot above it over a barrel swivel. Cast. Let hit bottom and slowly bounce it back in.

use 3 way rigs fished off bottom with either fathead minnow tail hooked, a spawn bag, or a crab tail or piece of shrimp, you can also use said bait under a slip float along the lower north wall, you'll get browns too so be ready for that, now you want to get right by the lighthouse if you can but if not the area right under the bridge is good or near the sail loft, you can also cast small spoons like a small cleo or Swedish pimple and jig it off bottom the old stand by 2 jig and plastic rig jigged off bottom will also get you perch. early mornings or evenings like any fishing are usually best. these same methods will work anywere for perch along the lake, even McKinley pier goodfishin!

I didn't mean to sound so rude, I was just saying. But I understand where you're trying to get to. Thanks for the heads up tho, if all goes well I'll definitely be down this weekend but then again looks like rain is in the forecast. We will see but thanks again.

Hey I'm sorry man I was just joking around, I didn't mean anything harsh, I don't think you've been around these forums long enough to realize good reports or advice is hard to come by, especially if your a shore angler, I see that you joined only 6 months ago and if you haven't realized by now most of the people on here are kinda rude. I wasn't trying to be like that it was just supposed to be funny. Perch fishing can be rough for Someone in the harbor if your just getting into it, some guys resent that they put in a bunch of time learning and time down there just for someone to want all the answers. Just take a trip down and see what you get, and I can tell you there are a lot more guys that will give you tips while you are actually fishing down there than on this message board.

First off I never asked anyone for a technique I just asked a simple question that's it... Also nobody is born catching walleye, perch, salmon ect..... For a person as myself that's works so much & doesn't have the time to go to the lake everyday, these websites are very helpful. I've shared a few tips with people as well as others have shared with me. That's what the website is for anyways, it's for people to interact with each other. The bible says ask & you shall receive, so I asked a simple question. I'm new to fishing like I've said before I'm learning & learning fast. The key word is learning not teaching. People go to college to learn, not because they already know what the teacher is going to teach about, they go there to educate themselves on a certain field. I go to lake link to learn what others are doing in order for me to become a better fisherman. Thanks for your smart comments tho you guys, really appreciate it. As far as the article on the newspaper? I'm not sure Donald Trump would be the best choice to be our president for the next 4 years, but then again, Obama was in for 8. How much worse could it get?

Sooo.. how about them Perca flavescens?.... are they in...or biting or both. Hopefully both. What are you all catching them on minnows..crawdad tails?...shrimp...? Maybe just nightcrawlers? What depth? What rig? What kind of line? How fast do you set the hook? Do you ever use plastics? What kind of jigging technique do you use? It's opening day! Just go try and get em. Oh one more did you see the article in the journal what are your thoughts? I'm just playing guys but people ask questions all the time and it's normal for these forums. But to guys that just ask questions to be lazy that's why people don't give you respect.

I just wanted to put this thread above others so someone might see this question maybe later tonight or tomorrow. Geez, I didn't know there was a set schedule on when to ask if the perch are biting.... But thanks on helping me achieve my goal. Cool
