Early Coho! Early Coho! Early Spring Coho!

Milwaukee - Freshwater Fishing Report

Milwaukee Fishing Lake Michigan Salmon Report 4/24/11

By Wisconsin fishing charter Capt. Jim Hirt
Early Coho! Early Coho! Early Spring Coho!
We had two charter trips this weekend with great action both time periods. In the morning we had good numbers on Coho, one twelve pound Lake Trout and a small Brown Trout. Afternoon was even better with sixteen fish total. Mostly Coho both charters with a nice eleven pound Chinook in the afternoon. The hot bait was the regular size Reaper Peacock made by www.badgertackle.com We also had action on orange flashers and flies. If you would like all my reports go to www.jimhirt.com and subscribe they will go to you first every time I post.

How!
April fishing remains very good when you can get out. The weather has created some problems with presentation and access to the best fishing areas. Our best presentations are 2,3,4,and 5 color Cortland lead core and downriggers 12 to 45 feet down. The fish have been on regular and magnum spoons. The Reaper Magnum and regular Peacock Silver spoon by Badger Tackle have caught most of our fish. Six inch orange dodgers and Johnnie Peanut Flies are also doing a good job. Our best boat speed is 1.7 to 2.0 mph. Slide Divers are producing very well set to #2 with 30 feet of line out.

Where!
Head northeast out the north gap Milwaukee and fish north in 45 to 70 feet of water. Water color may be an issue if it is cloudy move in and out of the cloudy water for the best action. The color break is holding most of the fish.
