Lake Michigan, Milwaukee, WI

Join us for some urban fishing along the beautiful city scape of Milwaukee WI. You may think I’m crazy when I say beautiful city scape, but if you have stood off the pier looking back at the city with the sun going down, you would have to agree with me. If feels like you have a secret shared with only a few, while thousands of people bustle about their day with out knowing the treasure that lies in the deep right off the pavement.
There are several places in the metro area that we like to fish. We had a great time fighting huge king salmon last year at this time. We learned to fish this area with the locals on the pier as well as watching a few videos. We did what we saw on the videos and before long we had our hooks into something that felt like a pickup truck going down the highway. The fish move daily and there are a few spots to pick from.
I will have contacts pre fishing the local spots a few days before the event so I am unable to give a specific location to meet at this time. For those of you on Facebook, if you RSVP to the Salmon Event I can send you a note several days before the event and give you the address of where to meet. That is also a good place to inquire about car pooling if you want to try to share a ride with someone coming from your area. For those of you not on facebook, email me and I can add you to the list and let you know where to meet.
There is no fee for this event, but you must be a member of WI Women Fish. We will meet at 10:00 p.m. ( at a place to be determined) and plan on fishing well all day.
There are links to a video on our facebook page that shows you how to rig up a line to fish for these big fish. The exact fishing location and meeting place will not be posted on the web site but only emailed to those attending. Everyone is invited and it is best to remain flexible. As always safety is a big concern for us and we try to do everything right.
I encourage you to do some research on salmon fishing from shore and you will find lots of tips and tricks to try. We will send out a list of recommended tackle to use. We fish in all types of weather so come prepared. If you are joining us email me to get on the notification list.
