This video was taken on 5/10/2018 north of the boat launch in Sheboygan. Gals from Wi WomenFish.com took on the challenge of fishing this wonderful fishery. Barb Carey and 2 gals from Wi Women Fish got to experience the thrill of catching Brown Trout. Check out the video that was taken on this day! If you like to see more fishing from this group. Check out BadgerFarmGirl on YouTube and subscribe! Thanks for watching! Tightline!

Not much of a helpful report, but was out Monday night about 5-830pm. Got pretty foggy so we stayed pretty close to the harbor. Tons of alewives jumping in the harbor. Marked quite a few fish in shallow. We fished mostly between 15-40 fow, and didn't do anything.... not a bump. Tried spoons, cranks and some flasher/flies.
Hoping to get out again Friday and try as long as the wind cooperates! Gonna try for coho but shooting in the dark for how deep! But hoping to get the skunk out of the boat..
p.s. towards dark we were trolling a pass in front of the harbor and a fellow fisherman went well out of his way to drive the long way around us, as he was going into the harbor - rather than risking hit any of our lines. Tip of the cap - much appreciated!
Coho's going on the Milwaukee posts. Anyone having any success off Sheboygan? Very quiet on here so I'm guessing not much going on. 8-10 trailers at the launch this morning and I spoke to one boat coming in, they caught a whitefish and that was it. A new way to pay launch fees I noticed.

After a couple windy days we finally got out on the water yesterday morning. We had some good success fishing the harbor area after the rain & storms passed. We went 5 for 7, catching two king salmon just under 20 pounds, a lake trout and two brown trout. Lead core lines with white spoons worked well. I nice start to the 2018 fishing season. We will be offering free boats rides & salmon recipes Tuesday evening from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm along the Sheboygan Riverfront sponsored by the Sheboygan Area Great Lakes Sport Fishermen’s club.

Club Contest Rules:
The Sheboygan Area Great Lakes Sport Fishermen's club has been sponsoring a club fishing contest for more than 40 years. The “Big Fish Challenge” $500 cash grand prize will be awarded to one of the 5 largest fish caught out of the port of Sheboygan. The contest runs from April 1, 2018 to October 31, 2018. You must be a member of the club to participate in this contest. Cash prizes will be awarded for the adult division, while trophies will be awarded to the juniors. The awards will be presented at the club's annual banquet held in February 2019 for the largest fish in each category. The adult division will be paying out cash for the top 3 places following in all five Great Lakes species: 1st place - $75, 2nd place - $50, and 3rd place - $25. The winner of the $500 cash “Big Fish Challenge” will be drawn from the five members who have caught the biggest king, coho, rainbow, brown and lake trout. The blind drawing will be held at the clubs annual awards banquet. The four other participants not selected will each receive $75 cash. You must be a SAGLSF club member at least one day prior to registering a fish. A club member MUST have caught the fish. All fish registered must be caught on Lake Michigan or its tributaries. All fish must be weighted and registered at the Wharf (733 Riverfront Drive) the day it is caught. No frozen, discolored or altered fish will be accepted. The Wharf staff and the SAGLSF board members decision on registered fish are final. The biggest fish in each category is determined by weight. You must beat the current big fish by weight to get your name on the leader board. Rules infractions and/or protests will be heard by the clubs tournament committee. An official sign up sheet and standings board is displayed at the Wharf. The contest runs every year and is coordinated by club member Ed Kalmerton. The online standings board will be updated on a weekly basis, but the standings board at the Wharf is the official current leader board. http://www.sheboyganfishingclub.com

I am from Council Bluffs, IA and my dad is from Harlan, IA. My dad recently retired and we have always talked about going up to WI and trying for Steelhead. I am a teacher so I have a few days off school so we thought this would be a good opportunity to do it. Thank you for the information!
