Algoma or Kewaunee salmon charter suggestions

7 posts in this topic

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!

    • Update   I was able to get an extension kit from Tim's Outboard! Couldn't believe it, I checked all over the internet and local shops and NOBODY had the right one for my motor, but Tim's was able to dig one up. It was a great price too, much less than I expected to pay. They shipped it out to me and I'll be installing it on Sunday. Thanks to swamptiger for the suggestion!
    •    Whether, for examples, it's the Trumper's silence, and sometimes support of, his proposed stimulus spending after opposing BHO's, or war protesters largely absent while BHO intervenes in the Middle East after 6 years of massive protest marches when GWB did, or this story, I guess it's up to the observer to decide how much of this so called outrage you've seen in the last several decades has been really based on true principles or just party politics. The press has promised to scrutinize Trump. Great. I expect that. The problem is they've lost their credibility with the rabble so the rabble are left with trying to figure out which institution is telling the truth or pulling our legs   I suppose the one positive to come from the Trump presidency is the left will now become concerned with things like fiscal responsibility, Executive Branch overreach, and interventionism in the Middle East. Not that I wouldn't welcome their  conversions once again to the aforementioned issues after taking a hiatus the last 8 years. But, better late than never, I guess

      24 Feb 2017 at 10:44 ET                        CPAC attendees wave Russian flags with the word "TRUMP" written on the front.   Staffers at CPAC quickly scrambled to confiscate Russian flags with the word “TRUMP” on the front that were being waved by attendees during President Donald Trump’s speech on Friday. The trouble began when some attendees took out pro-Trump flags to wave during the president’s speech that also happened to have the same white-blue-and-red striped pattern as Russian’s official flag.

    • The more the merrier. Funny how I always make picks, second guess and change and should've stayed with original picks. Still fun to do though. Should be interesting year with some of the big changes.
