WINTER - December-February
Wisconsin's World Class Brown Trout Fishing • Milwaukee Harbor Brown trout • Ice fishing Wisconsin
We have the Worlds best Brown Trout fishery from November-March! I run more ice fishing trips and open water Brown trout trips than anyone in the Midwest. I specifically target trophy brown trout. The Milwaukee harbor rarely freezes over and most of the year we can still get out in the boat or airboat if you choose not to ice fish. One of the unique things about my style of fishing for big brown trout is I prefer to fish them with stand up tackle such as spinning rods, float rods, and bait casting rods. I will also troll for the big browns which can be very effective as well.
When some of the smaller marinas and smaller harbors freeze over, is when I will start to ice fish for big brown trout. We target several different species in the winter when Ice fishing. The most popular being big brown trout / rainbow trout through the ice. The Brown Trout can reach 30+ lbs and fight incredible through the ice. A typical day on the ice for trout is about 6-15 brown trout and or steelhead through the ice. Most of this fishing is done with jig poles in heated ice shelters that we provide. We supply all the gear and bait! You get to enjoy the best brown trout fishing in the world open water or through the ice. * Best time for big brown trout is November - March!
We also fish for brown trout in the winter out of the boat, here in the Milwaukee Harbor all winter the ice in the main harbor comes and goes and most of the winter you can catch Lots and Lots of brown trout in the boat 40+ fish days on spinning tackle are almost normal. There's no where in the world that can compete with our fishery here in the Milwaukee Harbor in the winter for brown trout. It's that good!
* Reserve your brown trout or steelhead trips ASAP we are booked solid every winter and spring!
