Milwaukee Fishing Lake Michigan Salmon Report 7/12/12

By Wisconsin fishing charter Capt. Jim Hirt
East Wind and the Fish Went Deep in Milwaukee!
Surface temperature is up to 72 degrees and the fish are 40 feet to bottom. The weather has been great! Fishing has been good with a mixed bag of all species. Mostly Chinooks, Rainbows and Coho. Chinook to 21 pounds are screaming line and all are enjoying some great action. Fish from 100 to 160 feet of water anywhere east of Milwaukee. The hot bait for Rainbow Trout was the Magnum size Reaper Watermelon spoons made by www.badgertackle.com

Our best presentations are 8 & 10 color Cortland lead core and downriggers 80 to 155 down or five feet off the bottom. Fish have been on regular and magnum spoons in a blue and silver or green and silver pattern. The Vulcan Magnum or Reaper Magnum spoons by Badger Tackle have caught most of our fish. Our best boat speed is 2.0 to 2.1 mph on the Depth Raider. Slide Divers are producing very well set to #2 with 50 to 85 feet of line out with the ring.

Head north south or due east compass bearing and set up in 100 feet of water. Out in front of the water filtration plant is a good option for small boat anglers the fish seem to be closer to shore in that location. The gaps are dead and the shore fishing is zip nada nothing! Have a great fishing season. Let's go fishing!! Jim charters out of Milwaukee, WI. with Blue Max Charters.
