If you’re not a local, you might not realize that Algoma Wisconsin fishing is a big deal for area fishermen-in-the-know.
In fact, two of Wisconsin’s Lake Michigan record fish have been caught in our very own Kewaunee County. In 1997, Debbie Morrison got a 27 lbs. 2 oz Steelhead. Dick Crowe got the record Lake Michigan brown trout (36 lbs. 9 oz.) in 2004. If you love to fish, your next fishing trip in Algoma, WI could land you the next record-breaker! Lake Michigan fishing from the waters of Algoma Wisconsin offers a wide range of fish to catch: Coho salmon, Chinook salmon, Steelhead trout, lake trout, brown trout and brook trout abound.
There are a lot of resources for Lake Michigan fishermen. For information on fishing licenses, weather conditions and much more, visit the DNR’s Lake Michigan Fishing page. The local fishing report is always a handy reference if you want to know where the fish are, what the weather’s doing, and what lures are making the fish bite. If you have your own boat for your Lake Michigan fishing trip, there are four marinas in Algoma: Algoma Boat Club, Algoma Marina, Captain K’s Landing and Pier 42 Marina.
Consider Algoma Charter Boat Fishing
If you don’t have your own boat or gas prices have made you rethink hauling your own, you can always opt for the experience and safety of a local charter boat. No one knows the local waters and the best Lake Michigan fishing spots better! There are a number of Algoma-area charter fishing companies. For a full list of charter boat services in Kewaunee County, check out the list at the Algoma Chamber of Commerce.
