@Jigging Jill,

  As far as fishing from the pier goes, the kings are already in, there are fish all over the harbor. The king salmon run starts around early to mid-October when the kings start running upstream.

When do the Salmon start their fall spawning run ...When will it be productive to fish for salmon from the pier? Is it a matter of water temperature??

We do get some limited natural reproduction on our part of the lake. Very limited. There is some that occurs in Sauk Creek as well as Mineral Springs Creek. There is a bit in the Sheboygan River drainage as well and they've been seeing pinks there for a few years now. These are most likely strays from there and we could be more likely to see more in years to come farther south in the lake.

Not that rare anymore, I have caught two this year, one went on display for last Derby. A lot of fish from Lake Huron now.

Beautiful Pink salmon! In all my years fishing for salmon, albeit only 12 years, I've only seen one pink salmon and it was a ol'male humpy. Ah the good times and pics :D

Fished a solo trip yesterday starting out shallow looking for 4 year old kings.  Picked 1 up and headed out deep.  Worked 200-260 with flasher/flies and spoons. With only three rods to work with I had to choose my baits and setup wisely.  Ended up 4/4.  I have a few openings left this month, Sept. 18,19,26,27 and 30th.  I can accommodate between 1-4 people.  Click on the link for more information.

The law changed that you can clean your fish while on the water of Michigan as long as you are the required distance from the shore,  becasue the DNR cared along with the fleets on lake Michigan wheather it be a charter of weeknd warrior. The reasoning for the change was to replace the micro organisms back into the water that the zebra mussles and baitfish like alwives where competing for.
