It was terrible. The Kings were just not cooperating that day. Way different results than last week. We fished from 4:30am to 5pm with a big fat skunk :twisted: . We started out in the harbor for a couple of hours throwing glow thundersticks,cleos,and k woblers zip nothing not even a bite. Fish were being caught on spawns on a bobber mostly cohos and a few kings. Then we went to Pikes Creek and the Kings were just jumping all over the place but they were not biting. Through eveything at them and not even a bump. Some were caught on rattle traps but majority on spawns on the bottom. By noon we decided to try our luck on the pier. Saw packs of 6 or more cohos and browns swiming close to the wall. It looks like they were coming in waves but no takers. It was a frustrating day but really enjoyed the weather and Scenery in Kenosha especially the ladies that were doing there morning jog from Carthage College on the bridge in Pikes Creek :D

Sorry to hear that it was a frustrating day for you out there. It seems that salmon fishing can be like that. Good one and day bad the next. I guess that you need to put your time in to be rewarded. Thanks for the report.

You've been killing them lately Larry, I guess everyone has an off day every now and then.

Were you wearing your lucky hat?

No :evil: . I looked all over for it and could find it. I know its in the house some where. The cleaning lady was in last week and probably moved it somewhere. I was such in the rush Sunday morning that I didnt look hard enough for it but I am going to look for it tonight after bowling.

when taking 158 to sheridan hook a left onto sheridan and take it down towards the lake. Right when you get to the beach there is a little bridge and underneath it there is some nice fish. I'll either be up there tuesday night/wed morning or all night sat

Zorich,

I just found out from teh Wisconsin DNR that you can fish the creeks a half hour before sunrise and a half hour after sunset but you can fish the main lake and harbors andytime. If you get caught its a $175 ticket. Be carefully. Just FYI

Good Luck

I was there too, and water was to calm in my opinion and elbow to elbow fishing on the beach. I only seen two fish caught that day very slow that day and i personally got skunked, and then headed to the harbor side to check out the action there and lotsa people with no action, except got to see a disgustingly huge carp on a stringer w/ one missing eye ball.
