Agreed, I’d like to see more fishing reports rather than discussions and rants about fog and radar.

Went out of Kewaunee tonight and ended up 4 for 5.  2 small shakers were thrown back, a couple pound king and a 6-7# lake trout is what made it into the cooler.  Worked 200 - 250 FOW and targeting the top 50 feet, surface temp was 66-68 degrees and 40 feet down it ranges 45-50 degrees.  5 color leadcore took the laker, beyond that a bit slow.  Hopefully the weather and wind doesn’t get too bad this weekend and scatter the fish even more than they are already.

Just please remember if your in a smaller boat some radar systems might not pick up your boat 

And please if your in a smaller boat give more room to the bigger boat most of the time they run more gear and dont turn a easily as a small boat

Hey!  How about a fishing report?!

A buddy and I went out this morning in Algoma.  There was no fog that I could see.  A 4am-930am run netted us 6/7.  First fish came at 450am on flasher fly, then doubled up at 510am.  3 nice 15# kings boated all on riggers with flasher flys 55-70 down.  chrome with frog.  While reeling in my 7 color, got a bite, hooked a small 4# king.  Around 8am, we encountered a shaker problem.  2 shakers trying to inhale magnum spoons half their size............damn things would have choked on it if it was real bait.

1.6mph to 2.4mph.......seemed like a strong under current to offset slower speeds.  Best depths were 100-125ft.

100 yard visibility = sign me up  

I am fishing in that every time  


What I question is what I observed: 4:00 am darkness, fog you can’t see more than 1-2 boat lengths in, and 20+ small Craft just like mine blindly feeling their way out to fish. 

 I’m not “tearing” anyone up about it and I never said don’t go. Anyone wants to go in those condistions, have at it.  Our paths will never cross because my boat will stay dry.

Just because someone has radar does not mean they know how to use it

Not sure how that post is so great and informational?? Basically if you can see 300 feet you still go out cause you are only in town for a week a year?

That just seems like your asking for it. Many times the fog is there it will come and go as the morning/day goes on, however 300 feet is hardly safe for anyone without radar.

Reason you probably didnt hear sounds from charters is cause they were staying as far as possible from you guys.

I dont really think anyone was ripping into anyone, but rather trying to keep everyone safe. I value the people on my boat so I would rather play it safe.


Bottom line is that Fog=dangerous

Suminski, 

Thank you for the post after reading the previous posts yesterday I was very tempted to put a post together myself. I don’t think I could have done it better. Thank you again

Just want to make a comment about fishing in the fog. We take a trip to Algoma for a week every year and just got back from ours a week ago. This last trip we had to fish in the fog one day. I have a 19 foot Lund Tyee Magnum and don't have a radar. Now granted if you can't see more then 10 feet then we just don't go out. But we had about 100 yard visibility when we went out last week. Three of us in the boat off Kewaunee and when driving two of us are on full time watching for other boaters. Once fishing we have one person full time job is to watch what's in front and around us. Also every minute to two minutes we used our horn. We are as safe as we can be so don't tell me I can't go out. During our trip me and another guy were side by side with each other because we kept horning each other to give our position. I could not see him he was just far enough that I couldn't see him. All of a sudden a 35 foot charter drives right between us going opposite way. Charter at no time ever used his horn. Yes he could see us on radar but point is give me a horn every once in a while. In fog we set a course and don't change unless we have to. 


Point is don't tear into me because I don't have radar. It's more about being decent to other boaters and respectful which I am. As well as most important being safe as you can be in those conditions. I've been in Algoma in past years where you don't get one day of no fog.

Went 3 for 3 yesterday morning.  Started in 100 FOW and worked our way out to 225 and eventually working some shallower water. We picked up one shaker right away, but then the next fish wouldn't come until 10 am. Caught a 12 lb king on a bloody nose spoon on 5 color in 85 FOW and a 20lb king on a dipsy 140loc and blue/cookie monster FF at the same depth.
