Algoma or Kewaunee salmon charter suggestions

Recommended Posts

We would like to charter a boat out of either port or in between and would like some suggestions on what time of year and a good charter boat to rent, How is the salmon fishing expected to be this year?

I have heard reports of a few kings already being caught from Port Washington and Algoma. As far as charters go there are a few in each port and they all do a pretty good job. I think there may be a charter service that is a sponsor on this forum so check them out. Algoma, Kewaunee and Port Washington all have pretty good success rates. As far as the time of year I'd try to book 2nd week in July through the first couple weeks of August if its kings yur after.

As stated in the above response there are plenty of charters in both Kewaunee and Algoma and they all do a pretty nice job. I'm one of them but you should visit their web sites and call them to make your own decision. [Note from admin: edited.]

As far as a good time to come I would say from now through early Sept. The fish just started biting a few days ago, see my earliet post. It's still a little cool over here but not bad so bring your sweatshirt.

I'm a little partial to Algoma because I fish there but both towns are nice and we are basically fishing the same pods of fish. Our lodging is on the Ahnapee river, 100ft from the boats and a half of a block to the first restaraunt. Hope this helps.

FM, thanks for the reports and keep them coming. I may have to sneak out a bit earlier this year if the kings are already showing up. Just out of curiosity, would you happen to know Barron Hoff? He used to slip in Algoma for many years his boat is the hobby shop. He has it drydocked in Keewaunee again this year.

I definitely know the boat "Hobby Shop" but really don't know Barron. I believe he was slipped in the city marina, I always liked his rig. He's from Shoreview right? That was my old stomping grounds til I decided to charter fishing for a living.

Fishin' Magician,

I have been coming to Algoma for about 15 years. I always liked the name of your charter and when this site first started I used your boat name as my handle. Sorry about that but no one had taken it yet. I have enjoyed the fishery in Algoma and hope it continues to produce. We have a trip already planned this summer and cannot wait to hear the real sing.

Yep, that is the Barron I was talking about. Still a nice rig and well taken care of. If you would be looking for another boat for your charters I could hook you up for info. Otherwise like I said, Thanks for the reports and keep them coming. Now I have the itch to get out and go after some of those kings. I'll try and look you up next time I get in town if your in port and introduce myself. Untill then, tightlines!

    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
    • P. S. Seasoning has a Memorial Say sale of 20% off everything plus free shipping on orders over $30.
    • Definitely blacks.  I haven't hit my blacks spot yet but matbe this weekend. 
    • Had a decent breeze last night so wasn't too bad.  
    • I would be out a morning or two if I still had the tag.   Afternoons must be a sauna in a blind.   We hunted in shorts and t-shirts in early May and were still hot when afternoon temps reached around 82 - 85 degrees.
    • Remember to get those birds entered!  I know there are more out there.
    • Well wondering if anyone is going to be out in the heat for the last turkey season.  I was out last night and just needed a nice strutter to get a bit closer.   I moved the blind to his entry/exit point.   He didn't want to follow the hen when she walked by my blind twice.   He stayed on the high ground in the field. Hoping for better results.
    • Game 6 of Caps and Lightning was fun to watch, even though the lightning got shut out.  Ove was a beast, really fun to watch him play like that.   Good for the Caps, I think they can nuetralize the speed of Vegas, they have some hard hitters on the team.  Hopefully Ove can kiss the cup.
    • Vegas vs Caps, we all saw that coming.
