I just might quit fishing ... my niece caught this from shore Saturday near the treatment plant in South Milwaukee ... in a brief afternoon she has by far out fished my largest brown .... They went without a net, so her husband Joe had to climb down into the water and grab the fish ... just as the 8lb line snapped. I am thinking I was born without the 'big fish' gene. Nice job Katie!

Nice fish!

I'm constantly amazed at the fish that are caught right next to downtown Milwaukee and up and down the shore. Lake Michigan is a outstanding fishery.

Great to see such an amazing shore fishery. A big boat-or any boat at all, for that matter-isn't necessary. It was a brilliant decision by someone at the DNR to stock Browns and give the shore anglers a shot at trophy fish. With the forage base collapsing, I sure hope they'll reconsider the decision to keep stocking chinooks at the expense of browns.

Congrats to your niece on the fish of a lifetime. How do you top that?

This is how I feel when someone shows me a Brook Trout from Nipigon.... damn...

The forage base would be fine if they'd stop trying to recreate the 1960s. I think they're better off only stocking Chinooks in the southern end of the lake, LOTS of natural runs on the northern end.
