Milwaukee Fishing Lake Michigan Salmon Report 8/18/11

By Milwaukee Wisconsin fishing charter Capt. Jim Hirt
Go Deep! Deep! Deeper! In Milwaukee.
Warm water has driven the fish way out or way down. We're seeing great Rainbow Trout action with fish to 12 pounds and 18 pound kings and a few Lake Trout. Leadcores and divers best with action on downriggers as well. Magnum spoons are a good for Rainbows. Surface water has warmed to 76 degrees and most of the action on Rainbows is 40 to 66 feet down. To get my fish reports and how to videos first go to www.jimhirt.com By subscribing you will keep ahead of the other anglers. When I post you will get it fast!

My top producers have been Reaper and Vulcan magnum spoons on 10 color leadcores and 225 copper rods. Throw in a flasher fly on the downrigger and keep moving till you find action. Big Chinooks are hitting Reaper Magnum Fish Fry Glow spoons and flashers from 100 to 155 down off downriggers fifteen feet behind the ball. Looking for Reapers and Vulcans made by www.badgertackle.com you may only order them online. Try them their shipping is cheap and they arrive fast. Ten color lead behind a Church Walleye Board is one of our best presentations. Wire divers have replaced the braid divers set to #2 with 100-120 feet if line out. Silver spoons have taken Rainbows to twelve pounds the last several days. A little faster speed about 2.2 is required for Rainbows. I use the Depth Raider to measure speed at the ball. The boat speed of 2.0 to 2.2 has been best. Don't forget the Lake Trout near the bottom magnum Reaper glow spoons SLOW, SLOW, SLOW 1.5 or less will net Poor Mans Lobster.

Fish east of Milwaukee 100 to 170 feet of water. Head out the Main gap Milwaukee straight out for the best action. Have a great fishing season. Let's go fishing!
