Went down to south pier tonight at about 6:30pm the lake was pretty rough. But I decided to give it a go anyway.. I ended up going 3/3 on brownies. 8# 11# and 14#. All in about an hours time. Dancing anchovy was the ticket tonight! Smile

What's going on? Who's saying there is no fishing at night? Some of us work nights, and sleep during the day. If I can't fish at night.......I'm going to be very very VERY pissed

Caught a couple browns between 11 & 1pm today . Fun for sure. I sure would be displeased if I couldn't fish when I want and when it is legal. Is it just that we can't use the cleaning station on "off" hours or are some people confused?

First I would like to congratulate Lonnie on his great fishing during SAR!!!

Now ...I will tempt fate and just go out there tonight just to see what happens. We cannot let this city keep taking fishing spots from the taxpayers. we have paid enough for Dickert to fly around on our money. This town is getting really screwed up. I will post from jail if I have to!!

Good luck and good fishing! Big Smile

Ha ha! Maybe it was. I fish when I get the chance and have been since my teens. Nite fishing is not illegal in a public place usually. Racine is known for salmon and trout venturing near shore at nite and cloudy days. (I'm not giving away any secrets so I hope no irrationally crazy Lake Linkers jump all over me for 'ruining' the Lake Michigan fishery.) We started painting glow on spoons in the late 70's … and as you have experienced, no one messed with us, until this year. I'm headed to work shortly, but will be back home to try it again in a couple weeks. I hope the cops are busy that nite catching some real criminals.

NiteMite I will say this the earliest I have fished the piers was 4am. The only time I was out early was during SAR! Maybe you should not fish so late? I really hope with the Burnout Bash coming up at the end of September they don't try pulling this crap!

Thanks YouNeedKoolaid! Nite Mite what pier are you fishing? I seen Racine police department this late spring when the coho were in just parked and sitting in there vehicles by the north pier and they never said a word to me. Maybe it's one bad cop selling drugs or prostituting his women there and you disturbing his business lol. Here you go YouNeedKoolaid!

Lonnie I agree. If the regulations prevent us from using the Peir and they are also enforcing it action must be taken. Btw. I'm not surprised you were in the top 3 for the shore division. Congrats on that beast of a brown. Love to see a picture.

I went out last nite about 1am on my only day off and was stopped before I could ever get my gear out. The officer told me I'd get a parking ticket and worse if I stayed. What does that mean? I said that I saw at least one light on the pier, and that guys were fishing Salmonarama last week. He said that was Salmonarama and that there was no parking now and no fishing now and that I had to leave.

Obviously, I didn't want to push it, even though the fish were calling. Good luck if you try to get out … and it might be a good idea to keep bail money with.

Thanks Ovi! So far I have never had a problem with getting on the south pier early in the morning to fish. If this comes down to a problem with all this activity going on us fishermen need to report it simple as that. I have been fishing these piers since I was 12 and now I'm 50 damned if I'm going to let some riff raff spoil my fishing. I actually went at 4am one time and a cop drove by me as I was parking and never said a word to me. If it comes down to it maybe they need to do like McKinley pier you need a parking permit to park. I will go to the journal times or whoever and complain if they stop letting us on the pier before 6am cause I will be mad as hell if they stop me from fishing! Evil Grin

Pier is finished. They have a sign up by the cleaning station prohibiting basically the entire use of the area beyond 10 pm. Dnr guy was telling me they were having problems with drug deals and prostitution but that isn't exactly news. fishing has been pretty damn good this year. Lots of browns and cohos. I heard kings were starting to show up on some stringers too. Access is the same but an additional access point was put in a few hundred feet from the mouth.

Hello everyone,

I haven't fished the Racine piers since last summer and I was wondering if they fully finished everything? I remember reading somewhere that you now cannot park by the South Pier and just walk out two steps and fish anymore. Is this true?

Are they enforcing parking and no fishing hours on the pier now? I have been eager to get out this summer but I haven't had a chance yet. Lonnie congrats on that monster trout, saw the Leaderboards on Salmo O Rama's website.
