Hmmm, well that would only account for the spawning class king and coho salmon.... which make up xx% of the total population 


For whatever reason seems as though the fish aren't coroporating . I've been marking tons of fish up in Sheboygan my last 2 times out but have only been able to muster a handful of bites

No.  What we have is way bigger fish than previous years due to less stocking.  Baitfish are on the up and stocking is on the low.  Minus the lake trout due to federal funding.  My advice. Keep every lake trout possible. Even though I wouldn't feed them to family from IL... to help the fishery it is needed though.  That's a fact. Tight lines

Started in 90 feet of water 0445  1.5 north by checking temps finding 55 down 40 ft and 50 down 60ft  but no marks. Picked up and ran to 120 feet of water where I marked a little bit of bait so I decided to set up there. Bait disappeared so headed back west marking almost nothing all the way in again to 90 feet of water. Dramatic absence of anything in the dark!! Decided to troll east northeast until we hit fish.

Once I got to 280 feet of water which was 15 miles east of the north gap I decided to turn back suffering no bites and marking no bait and just an occasional hook 45-65 down. Finally 270 took our only fish of the day on a 5 color, nice little rainbow on Magnum Atomic melon kept the skunk out of the box. Had one more drive-by 240 ft seven color mag Roadkill. Had a 12 rod spread from five color , Seven color, 200 copper, 100 copper, 150 copper and 175 copper, 2 wire dypsies out verying depths from 80 to 140, rigors 35 down to 80 up-and-down and one shallow diver out 60 to 80. A mix of flasher fly, Brad‘s cut plugs and spoons and rotated until we gave up.

It was a great day to fish, water conditions seemed favorable but it was like a desert out there. I heard someone who stuck it out in 90 to 110 did catch four fish over the course of the morning. Lakers are abundant for charters who choose to dig the bottom but the silver guys are pretty hard to come by right now. Pretty surprised because the water cooled down nicely but I don’t know where the fish went. Similar reports from Racine and Port Washington. One Port Washington charter 21 rods six hours, three bites.

Bummed so I canceled for tomorrow. Figured I would get them dialed in today and knock them dead tomorrow. Bluegills are on the agenda.

We fished yesterday from 5:00 until 10:30, finished 7 for 10 with 3 lakers, 3 kings, and a coho. Started in 150 fow and worked out to 250. We found our best action in 185- 195 fow off downtown. We had 55*F water down 45 ft. All of our rods got hit running between 40 and 55 feet down. 9 color lead was the hot setup with a bloody nose spoon. Also took fish on white glow/ LBB flasher fly set ups on the dipseys and on a green dolphin stinger. 2 of our misses were screamers, keep your hooks sharp! None of the kings had any fins clipped (naturally reproduced?). Good luck out there, tight lines.

Fished saturday morning from 6-10:30 in 75-180 FOW from the filtration plant and north.  1 for 3 with a couple of drive by bites. For us, there was no particular pattern. Coho came on a dipsy diver with a coho rig (red dodger/purple fly) out about 40 feet, set at 3. Had an additional hit and run on this rod. Couple of nice bites on LBB with a white flasher down 75. Watermelon spoon received several drive by bites.  Marked some nice bait balls 40-55 foot down around 100-120 FOW. Beautiful morning for a boat ride and to rinse off some lures. radio chatter and others coming off the water (at south shore) indicated it was a slow day for most. Cleaning station was open, but dry with no one using it. Hope this helps.

Fished for a few hours in the heat of the day today, 11am - 2pm.

Due to our late start, action wasn’t as great as it could have been. We still managed a few fish however. 3/5, all chinooks, plus 2 drive bys and a shaker. Fished north of Milwaukee with 190-210 being our best depth on a north troll. We consistently  marked fish at 55 feet deep, but there were also periodic marks at 100 as well as 30.

Best rods today were our Wire Dipsys on setting 3 with 120 loc, as well as a downrigger at 100’. 7-10 color leadcore with stinger spoons also had a couple bites. 

Our divers did well with an 8” uv hotspot and a mirage frog fly, and the downrigger that did well had an 11” uv paddle flasher and a lbb fly, grn beads. Best spoon color was watermelon.

Lots of fish to be caught out there, if only we could have fished earlier! Good luck!
