Short trip today, out at 11:00 - 2:30. Went 2 for 5, one rainbow in 150 fow on a rigger down 50 with SWR and green RV Moonshine spoon. That rod also took another hit. Coho came on a dipsey in 160 fow with 50 fol on a coho rig. That rod also took another hit. Board with a 7 color and coho rig also took a quick rip. Other rigger, dipsey and 5 color were silent. The flies were thick once again.

Beware of the quality of those reports ...from past experience....430 am to 600 am is best...any presentations of small jigs or bait near bottom may work
Hi I’ve been seeing posts on Facebook about people catching perch in Kenosha it doesn’t say where what time or anything but that they got 15 perch in 2.5 hours
8 for 10 yesterday morning. With one big LT released, 6 nice, big coho and 1 bow. I could not establish a normal coho pattern. coho FF setups under performed?? And fish caught on Rigger, dipsey, LC and mono crank bait. It was an abnormal "coho" targeted day. Dream weaver SS spoon caught 1, Pro king mag spoon caught 2, LBB /8" caught 2, and Brads magnum wiggler caught 2 fish. Orange 00/green/gold peanut, 1. Fished 85' to 137'. Saw HUGE schools of large alewife around the boat 2 - 5' below the surface. Most importantly it was a Beautiful! Day.
Why don't guys who regularly fish Kenosha post on here regularly?
Got out 4 times over the weekend. Never got a skunk once, but did get only 1 coho Sunday night fishing the hill. 2 trips were by the border in 50 - 70 fow about 60 being best. Monday morning was our best trip when we went out 11 miles to 200 fow in the fog. First fish was on a 3 color on a board with an orange spoon, and go figure, it was a laker. best depth was about 135. No more lakers that morning. Ended up with 6 for 6. a laker, about a 14 lb bow, and 4 coho.
Coldest water was 45 at 200 fow and warmest was 49 by the boarder.
Fished Friday evening and Saturday till 3. 1 laker and 1 coho Saturday. Hard note for the Crooked Hook. Today was better. 4 lakers, 2 coho and a 16 # king (on a coho rig on a board) that took over 400 ft out before turning. Most everything was around 40 fow. Missed a bunch today.
I’m pretty sure the herd is not here yet but with all of the messed up weather, who knows.
Are the cohos around yet offshore in Kenosha? Trying to decide which port to fish
The hill is in like 55-65 fow (memory sucks...). on a east troll, you will see it start to drop off faster than in shallower. Its nothing like up north but for the southern basin, its a lot...
