Welcome to the Milwaukee Great Lakes Sport Fishermen Club and Foundation!
An Organization of Sportsmen Dedicated to the Enjoyment, Preservation and Improvement of Salmon and Trout Fishing in the Great Lakes.
The participants had a chance to fish with volunteers. Many of them actually caught fish, some were rather large! Dave Kwasny is the Chairman for this event. He put in a lot of time planning and organizing this successful event. Congratulation Dave on a job well done for the participants! Please come back soon to see some pictures which we hope to have posted by this weekend. A special Thank You goes out to the Volunteers who made this possible!

It was purchased from and installed by a local company, Floweigh of New Berlin. A dedication plaque has been hung above the scale. When you see Jay Mathwick, please take a moment to thank him and his family for their very generous donation!

This is a Net Pen.....
The Milwaukee GLSF Club is working for all Lake Michigan anglers on maintaining our great fishery. 84,000 Chinook Salmon were planted Monday, May 4th, 2015, by WI-DNR. They were placed into our net pens for acclimation. The fish were released into the lake the next evening, May 5th. This extra isolation/help for the planted small Chinook Salmon increases their chances for survival. With more fish surviving, the summer, fall and winter returns have become a really great asset for the port of Milwaukee and the fishermen. If you would like to become a member and help maintain our great fishing here in Milwaukee on Lake Michigan, please click on the Become a Member option for the menu above. We are always looking for new active members!
Look for details to be posted here in the coming months for 2016. We will need volunteers again to man the scales during Racine's 10 day run of Salmon-A-Rama. Please watch for this opportunity!
Thank you to all of the volunteers, the Chair Persons, spouses, bakers, food cooks and especially to all of the people who attended and generously purchased the items that made it a Charitable Success once again. We hope to see you all again next year!
Fact - A 36 pound Chinook Salmon was caught early, August 1, 2013!
Lake Michigan Sport Fishing...
The Best Trout & Salmon Fishing in the World is Right at our Doorstep… and the Great Lakes Sport Fishermen Club is working to keep our fishing great!
Lake Michigan has been called the “World’s Biggest Fishing Pond,” and with good reason. We have the best trout and salmon fishing to be found anywhere in the United States. If not anywhere in the world - right at our front door.
Catching a trophy-size fish is no longer something to just dream about, and you don’t have to spend thousands of dollars to make your dream come true in Canada or Alaska. You can make it happen right here in Milwaukee!
GLSF club members routinely catch chinook or king salmon over 20 pounds, lake trout over 15 pounds, rainbow trout or steelhead trout over 10 pounds, coho salmon over 8 pounds, and brown trout over 15 pounds.
Join us - the Great Lakes Sport Fisherman - and learn our fishing tips and techniques. We’ll help you to fish with success on Lake Michigan, and make your dream of a trophy-size catch come true.
Your membership will insure quality facilities and good quantities of fish for years to come.
Our club’s strength is in numbers. Collectively, our members do make a difference by preserving and improving the fisheries.
