I got down here only twice this winter. I usually go at the least once a week. I like the Racine harbor over the Milwaukee harbor, I’ve caught more fish in Racine. Of the two times I had two swing and misses on homemade autos and marked a grand total of 5 fish. Tried minnows, different colored cured shrimp, spawn sacs, and every jig i have. Didn’t see many fish caught around me either. The water both times was very cloudy which doesn’t help. Just wondering if anyone else has some insight. Just seemed like a really tough winter down there. Weather? Stocking? Can’t wait for next winter already.
Bueller did you end up going out and if so any action?
Anybody getting action through the ice? May head there later this week.

2020 SU Racine Trout Ice Derby “POSTPONED TO FEBRUARY 8th ”
Due to poor ice conditions in the Racine harbor the upcoming Salmon Unlimited ice fishing derby, scheduled for February 1st has been postponed to its make-up date of February 8th.
Salmon Unlimited ice derby officials assessed the Racine harbor ice conditions over the weekend and found 3-4 inches of ice in many areas, most of these areas were deemed sketchy at best. Although there were several anglers on the ice, thin ice around the docks made overall access unsafe. Because of this and warmer forecasted temperatures over the next 7-Days the derby was re-scheduled to the following weekend (Feb-8th) in hopes that we’ll have safe ice conditions for the derby.
Always remember that even during good ice conditions, this marina has several aerators placed throughout, always exercise caution and bring an ice bar if you plan to fish these areas.
There in the river
been down to the pershing park launch lagoon every day this week at different times of the day / night. haven't seen 1 salmon jump. threw crank baits and didn't even bump any. only fish I saw jump was across the street in the marina. where are they? should be in and jumping around the launch and marina a lot by now.
Right now its still a little dirty, but once it clears up, the fishing will be on again. It is NOT too late. Its just not the right time right now. I have had my best luck at end of September. And its been a little warmer this year, and water is a little warmer then usual. The big run should be last days in September/first week or so of October.
That video is already more than a week old!! If your coming down now your too late.All there is now dirty water.
