Kewaunnee 8/8-8/13 My dad and I fished out of Kewaunee for about 5 days and it was slow but steady for us. Ended up 12-16 with about a dozen shakers on top of that and a couple drive byes. We caught fish in 80-165 fow but fished as deep as 370 fow with only one drive by in 312 fow for the deep run. One one fish in a meat rig, one on a flasher fly, 3(+5 shakers) on clean spoons, 1 in a spoon with a dodger and 6(+7 shakers) on a spoon pro troll 8" spin ray. We added the spinner/spoon into the spread the last 2 1/2 days. Outside of the shakers the fish ran nice but no giants with the biggest just over 19 lbs. Sog was 2.2-2.8 mph. Surface temps ran 67-73 degrees. Fish were caught 40-70 feet down. Talking to a few other boats reports varied from 0-8 fish per trip and boats were scatteredall over the lake. Some big fish being caught and lost. Here's a few pics from our trip.
My mom, dad wife and myself made a four day fishing trip to Algoma for the labor day weekend. Fishing reports heading in were not good and we were greeted by cold water temps, thick fog and thunderstorms. We had one day we didn't get out due to thick fog. In talking with a few charter captains the best bite was out in 120-250 fow for rainbows and lakers. Not many kings were bring caught. We did find a few salmon on our evening trips. Most days were shortened by thick fog conditions on the lake. Here's my mom and I with 2 from the first evening caught on spoons inside 50 fow. The next day was gorgeous and we were able to work out deeper for some rainbow and coho action returning to the shallows for the evening. Wanda with a nice rainbow and king. The king was Wanda's first and she had a blast working it to the net. It was a nice 18.5 lb staging female.Here's both Wanda with our fish for the day. Both kings hit home made meat rigs and flasher in under 30 fow. Here's my dad with a nice brown trout that hit a spoon up shallow. In talking with pier fishermen there were very few fish in the river. We landed every fish that hit in my boat and my mom and dad only lost one rainbow the tossed a spoon on a jump. We couldn't buy a bite on a j plug the whole weekend. All fish on spoons or meat rigs. Water temps warmed from mid 40s to mid 60s on the surface by Sunday. My mom did get a mid teens laker she released without getting a picture. Most boats are fishing rainbows, lakers and coho in the top 50 feet over 100+ fow.
