I’ve been fishing at McKinly marina by the inlet across from the old pumping station and I live off park and Oakland so I fish the river by locust but there is no pools just crazy rapids at this time

I’m going to pick up some cranks and skeins...how does a slip bobber work? That’s what I was told to use...also the temp is about to really drop in a couple days so who knows what that will do for fishing....I live a block from the Milwaukee river but the current is crazy and impossible to fish and I don’t even thing there is any fish in there atm

Some of the better cranks have been the fat wiggler, Storm deep thunderstick, and the Flicker Shad.

First time fishing here in years but now I live close. Went at 1830 with spoons only to find out the choice bait were crank baits...seen 2 others catching fish with them. Another fellow was fishing with skeins on a bobber but said no action. I’m going to pick up some crank baits today and another pole to float some skeins while I work the crankers

Went 1/1 with a Chinook during a quick outing Monday afternoon. Hit on slip bobber set-up with skein. Put up a good fight. Tight Lines!

Fished from shore near light house/ mouth of the river from 5 am til 6:45 am sunlight with a glow spoon. No action , no one was in sight from shore. Saw a guy with a nice fishing boat going up the river (probably tracking fish). Where is everyone? Am I too early in the season? 

Any tips / advice would help.

Thanks in advance.

Several of my friends were out yesterday from Kenosha up to Port Washington including MKE all of them got fish using SKEIN on a float around 10' down. Most of them were out long before sunrise and fished until afternoon, some did better than others but they all had Kings both male and female

Fishing in the rivers for kings with skein has been good, I also landed a pink salmon. Stop in at R&R Sports fishing hole for the best skein.

I use two approaches when fishing from shore.  Try heavier spoons.  Use florescents in the early morning and dark.  Try silver during the day.  I also have luck using a heavier jig with minnow imitation gulp.  Use a slow retrieve and bound them off the bottom.

I walked out by Mckinley marina at 4pm and saw 2 guys fishing from shore they were there 1 hr and nothing. 2 guys in the marina in bass boats throwing spoons didn’t see any action.
