Gave it a try yesterday, had no luck. Saw one hooked on the harbor side but line broke, said he was using a spoon & new 17# test.
56° - 60° F
Fished the pier from 7 to 9:30 this morning. Bullheads were the only thing biting. No luck for anyone else from the discussions we had. Water was pretty warm; warmer than the air temperature. Strong current going out to the lake. Drove up to Algoma and didn't look like there was anyone fishing the piers so I'm assuming similar luck there.
61° - 65° F
Fished off the pier from 9:30 am to 2 pm with nothing to show for it. Lot's of king's jumping but no takers. Everyone we talked to was having the same results. Supposedly yesterday guys were having better luck. DNR survey guy stopped by and he said a few were caught at Bruemmer Park and at Footbridge when he was there but nothing at the pier today. Stopped at the fish facility and there were a couple kings in the lower window. Sounds like that will be opening first week in October according to the posters. The spillway was flowing over pretty good. An older gentleman there said he counted 5 that made the leap in the 2 hours that he was watching. I didn't believe him so I watched and sure enough I saw one clear. More rain and cooler temps in the forecast. Good luck!
CominToGetchYa--- you are close. The pier is across the river from the orange dot in your pic. The dot is right behind the Coast Guard building and you can' fish there. The pier itself is about 1/4 mile long with plenty of room to fish on the harbor side or the lake side, all the way out to the lighthouse. Take Hwy 29 into Kewaunee and head straight for the lake. Plenty of parking behind a white municipal building you will see at the end of the road. Fishing has been slow lately but it should pick up. Good luck!
Went out this morning. Had a few strikes but no hookups. Threw everything in the tacklebox at them. Few fish jumping and surfacing but still early. Nothing going on at the hatchery yet either.
Was out around 8am this morning for a couple hours. Muddy in the harbor and lake side as expected, debris wasn't too bad only saw a few big chunks floating out.Not a whole lot of fish jumping. I hooked up twice, brought one in and lost one.
I know the chances are slim, but if anyone catches one that has gold spoon with a single hook & a poor paint job on one side, it would be nice to get it back.
It was an old sppon of my grandads, looks like a K.O Wobbler, likely was an original K.O.
Is anyone been fishing kings off the pier yet? Normally they dont get started until later but Im just wondering.
Fished last week Tuesday, and again yesterday. Nothing in the freezer yet, sporadic fish caught from talking to others. Soon...soon...
