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!

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
