Had a good time fishing the lake on two charters. Caught salmon and trout. The king salmon were smaller than I was used to catching in Alaska. Ofcourse you could catch more in Lake Michigan.

2nd largest of the Great Lakes, and it did not disappoint. The city has done a great job in making this a family friendly and picturesque place to visit. Good for site seeing, walking/jogging and even has beaches with volleyball. Dining is also close by. What a beautiful lake, and alot to do adjacent to it.

I stayed about 30 minutes north of Milwaukee at a lake house. I have mainly been to california beaches and had no idea what this lake was going to be like. Well, it was like an ocean.
