Where can I buy spawn sacks in kewanee
Most important is to match your speed to your lure - your lure action is more important that the speed it is traveling. Don't run so slow your sticks aren't wobbling. I run rapalas and flicker shad mostly 2 to 2.5 is good, I prefer 2.5, a little fast is better than a little slow. Browns are cold water fish and don't mind the cold water as much as walleye, plus you cover more water. I check speed and lure action when deploying or with an extra rod and hang over the side of the boat. Play around with speed and watch the action of your lures (like a livelier lure) and note the speed when you get bit.
A north or south wind (even from a day earlier) will affect the long shore current so trolling north may be different from trolling south.
A buddy has some sticks that run good a 1 to 1.5 and spin out over 1.5, but at those speed nothing else is even wiggling.
Browns can be here or there or all bunched up, so if you get bit circle though it again. Sometimes I trolled hours with nothing then happen on a spot and pick up a limit in short order pounding that spot.
Good luck, hope the weather cooperates.
Is it worth the time pier fishing at this time of the year? Going to be in the area thought I might try the Alfonso or TR piers a shot.
Thanks iffy. Ive been wanting to try going after browns. Ive watched videos and did some research but seems like conflicting information on speed. Have you found any range of speeds to work better then others? Thanks in advance.
You can go for browns. Troll just like walleye, same gear too. Crank baits in 5 to 20 fow.
Im going to be staying at my cabin in alaska next weekend. I have a boat lake michigan capable and walleye trolling gear. Is there any decent fishing this time of year? Im new to the trolling game, usually jig or troll for walleyes. Thanks in advance
It looks like they have put in the dock at Kewaunee, at the public boat landing. Brand new dock. Water levels are down this year and there shouldnt be any issues . Parking lot is swept and ready for boats and trailers. I would call Accurate Marine to see if the ice is out all the way to the pier head. Good Luck!
What's the word on ice in the kewaunee river? Or Algoma harbor as well. Looking to get after Browns. If the weather gets nice I may take the mustang out for a spin and look myself. Thanks
More than likely those fish being dumped in were old breeder browns from a hatchery I saw the same thing last year...
5-10 pounds?..... No clue what they could be.
