I was just talking to a friend of mine and saying I miss the perch fishing even as recent as 4 years ago.  Yeah, you can catch them in the Milwaukee river channel.  Under the bridge is ok, and so is the bend by Sail Loft.  When they are there, it's fun.

FWIW, I have a boat, a kayak, and I still fish from shore.  I've done all three this week and have had fun each time.  Didn't matter if I caught a fish.

Tight lines out there!

Life isn't fair pal.  Buy a boat.  Or fish from shore and catch what you can when you can.  Pretty simple really.  I bought a boat and spent thousands of dollars on setting it up for trolling lake michigan.  Easy to start out with crappy equipment and buy what you can over the years.  


As for the guy asking to get back to fishing reports.  You know you can select an option to only see fishing reports.  Well that is until someone like you posts a comment and clicks "yes" this is a fishing report..

Technically you could go for Brown Trout as they tend to stay closer to shore and are more tolerable to warmer temps.

my my point is that the DNR is focusing on KEEPING SALMON here long term, so much so that they’ve cut salmon stocking so that alewife can “recover” & “bounce back.” Look up facts on WHY salmon stocking happened in the first place on Lake Michigan, it was because of alewife.

Yes, I’m not blind to the fact that mussels play a big part too but cmon, you mean to tell me we would rather spend millions annually on a fish stocking program for a fish that DOESN'T naturally reproduce here in Wisconsin? I would invest the tens of millions of dollars statewide all on eliminating those harmful mussels & whatever else needs to be done to restore this fishery like back when I was a child.

To conclude my point, it’s not fair that essentially you have to have a boat to really benefit from the salmon stocking, you have to pray day & night for 3 days straight of 20mph west winds to really have a shot of catching a few silver fish for the grill, otherwise the salmon stocking program is just for the charters & the retired unlike a yellow perch that IS a native fish & would be available to ALL.

Zebra and the much more devastating quagga mussels have really hurt the alewive and perch population. Lately when they do Lake Michigan surveys of the bottom, they don’t even find zebra anymore, it’s jist carpeted with evil quagga.


Those dang gobies are no help either. I miss the old days of jigging for perch and literally getting one every other cast. I know you only keep 5 but it sure was a blast catch and releasing. Man I miss those days.

have you tried under the Hoan bridge by summer fest? I did see a Eric Hataaja vid from 2016 where they were catching them. I personally haven’t tried perch fishing in many years.

you sir are very misinformed. the decline of the perch fishery has nothing to do with the alewives. its all about the zebra mussells eating the plankton
