Went out this morning from 7:30 till 10:00. No luck for us we had golden shiners and fathead minnows. I was hoping to get some perch and a bonus brown. I saw two fish caught in the time I was there. 1 brown and 1 rainbow. 1 was on the river side by the light house and the other was by the metros. The riverside fish was on spawn off the bottom, the other guy had his on a float, not sure what he had underneath.

Made it up on Saturday... wish I had better results to report. Started off in the harbor, lots of fishing moving around but none biting. Stayed there for a few hours then moved over to bridge area. Fished for a while around the lagoon and couldn't hook up with anything there and the area under the bridge was packed. Later in the afternoon moved out to the lighthouse. Just as I arrived, a group of kids were packing up and had put 7 on the deck. So i thought it would be good from there... but my luck didn't happen, only saw like 2 other fish caught. Stayed till about 3:30 with nothing to show for the day. Fished everything I had, tubes, jigs, cranks, spawn sacs, etc... nada, just not my day I guess. Oh well, I enjoyed my first visit and learned a few things. Maybe next time the bite will be better. Thanks to everyone for the info and tips.

Went down for a few hours this afternoon. Only one bite on a kastmaster. No bites on large fatheads or medium shiners. The cashier at Gander Mountain said that they were catching walleyes by the Hoan. Didn't see or hear anybody else talking catching any. Only saw a few small fish being caught.

John,

Thanks for the info, I appreciate it. I saw that road on an online map, i wasnt sure if it was blocked off as part of the summerfest grounds or not. That will save a lot of walking I would assume, i appreciate it.

If you want to fish by lakeshore state park you can take Erie down along the river to the Hoan and then keep going, there are several state park parking spots near the lighthouse, then you can walk behind Summerfest right to the lake shore park lagoon. TL

OK thanks... I'll see what I can come up with and if I can't find anything, i'll just park under the bridge and walk. Shouldn't have too much stuff with me. Can you cut through the festival grounds or have to go all the way around it?

Parking is a great question ..only place i have been parking is across from discovery world but there's signs that says no parking all along the road but there are plenty of cars parked ..seen parking metter guy drive by without stopping so guessing that be it .. I know i parked on the side where theres parkering meters and a sign saying 2 hour max parking and still got a ticket ...im at a lost with parking downtown ..im to the point of just parking at hoan bridge and walking all the way to summerfest ground ..

Sounds good, I'll try out everything I can! I'll probably get there about 9am-ish, keep an eye out for the guy who looks lost and out of place... that will probably be me! This will be my first trip up to Milwaukee to fish, so it's gonna be a bit of a learning curve for me.

Depending on how cold it is, i will probably be wearing all black clothing with a gray hat.

Where is the best place to park around there?
