Local charter fishing operators say the 2018 fishing season brought in bigger salmon in fewer numbers. Andy Stuth, owner of Door County Charter Fishing, says the fishing was okay though he and fellow charter operators have seen better. Stuth says the salmon catch was down this summer while rainbow trout were plentiful, though he had to take his customers further out on Lake Michigan.
Stuth believes that the larger-sized salmon caught this year are an omen of a better season in 2019.
