Lakeshore businesses prepared for another big year

You could be seeing a lot of trophy fish coming out of Lake Michigan along the coastline of Door and Kewaunee Counties this summer. The growing number of prey species like alewife, changes in stocking strategies, and higher water levels are helping produce bigger fish for anglers to find in Lake Michigan. Wisconsin Lakeshore Business Association President Tom Kleiman says 2019 could be the year of the trophy fish.

This year marks the end of a three-year stocking program by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources with planning for 2020 and beyond already underway. Kleiman says those discussions could lead to the reintroduction of the coaster brook trout to Lake Michigan.
