I went fishing in Milwaukee harbor December 13 with fishing friend Jeff Berg and guide Eric Hataaja. Jeff is the retired owner of a 200 man construction company and fishes and hunts about 100 days a year. Guide Eric just had certified his record length brown trout from Milwaukee harbor. The temperature climbed into the mid 40's. We fished from 7 AM until 1 PM and caught over 30 brown trout on jigs and plastic minnows. Most were from 3 to 5 pounds and a few bigger. My biggest was this 13 pounder.
