About The Fishing
Greetings from the Kenosha Charter Boat Association and welcome to the 2012 fishing season! As we enter another exciting year of salmon and trout fishing, we'd like to share with you some of the highlights of last season and share a little bit of what we're expecting in 2012.
Looking Forward to 2012
Considering last seasons returns, we're expecting another exciting and productive fishing season for the Port of Kenosha! We anticipate the spring Coho fishing will be even better than 2011. Expect a repeat of the 2011 early season King, Brown Trout, and Steelhead action.
Look for fishing to heat up around the middle of April. Weather, as always, will be the key factor. Judging from past trends and our area stocking report, we're also looking forward to another great year for returning King Salmon.
While mid-summer historically tends to be the time when the bigger Kings show up, indicators are looking good again for some excellent early season big fish action. Lake Trout numbers are expected to remain consistent for 2012 with numerous "lakers" in the 30 lb class sure to be cruising our off shore waters! June, July, and August are generally the best times to key in on this species.
A consistent Brown Trout fishery continues to develop in the Kenosha area and we've seen increases both in terms of size and quantity of these prized game fish over the last several years. The Wisconsin DNR has had continued success with the "Seeforellen" Brown Trout program resulting in a new Wisconsin state Brown Trout record in 2004. All factors considered, we're looking forward to what should be a highly successful and exciting fishing season for the Kenosha Charter Boat Association!
A Lake Michigan fishing charter can truly be an exciting, memorable (and affordable!) experience for family, friends, or co-workers. All KCBA charter boats are fully rigged, inspected, and insured and each captain is licensed by the U.S. Coast Guard and the State of Wisconsin. As far as the fishing? Just ask anyone who has fished out of Kenosha - It's nothing short of amazing!!
