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?

White hair jigs are awesome to. Buckaroo! Just saying. I also like popping kastmasters tipped with plastic or feathered treble.

Thanks for info guys... i'll see if I can find some, but if not... not going to worry too much. I'll try to swing by a walmart along the way, just not sure what the gulp inventory is like at walmart these days.

I also have some king egg sacs and shrimp, do you think those are worth bringing along? Not sure if anyone has been having any luck with eggs or shrimp.

Is the lagoon open? I kind of figured it would probably be frozen over.

Not sure that you have ever caught a fish nite mite. Never see any reports from you but you almost certainly have 2 cents for everyone! Gulp is amazing. Sure other things work but you honestly cant beat gulp! Id rather use cranks or spoons before using a different type of plastic. I have on hundreds of occasions out fished real worms in inland trout streams and rivers with gulp!

Don't be afraid to try the lagoon as well. There are usually big spawning browns and quality bows in there right now.

Upper column, try an orange(ish) flicker shad or thin fin. There were rainbows in the river mouth yesterday.

Remember that some of these guys are sponsored by these companies, so they have to push them. I've caught plenty using things that I used while fishing Puget Sound and Columbia R. area. These work in the Great Lakes and inland lakes. A fish is a fish.

You may even do better than gulp with what you have.

How important do you think it is to use Gulp as opposed to just regular plastic minnow baits? I am planning on coming up this weekend and driving up early tomorrow morning from Indiana. I realized late last night that I was out of Gulp, but I have some non-gulp tubes and minnows. Not sure I will be able to find any shops open after I get off work tonight and on my way up in the morning. Just seeing if it's worth going on a chase to find gulp minnows or if what I have should be sufficient? Anyone have any thoughts? Wondering
