Sheboygan, Wisconsin - Freshwater Fishing Report
Lake Michigan

Had some of the fastest fishing action of the season this October. Caught our 5 person limit of 25 fish in just 2 hours on 10/24/10. All chinook salmon and one rainbow trout. Fished offshore all weekend in 120 to 130 foot of water. All the rods took fish, but the downriggers really were the ticket. We ran mainly a variety of small spoons and one dodger fly on the middle rigger. Surface water temperature was 54 degrees. Watch a short video of our weekends fast paced fishing action at
