Milwaukee Fishing Lake Michigan Salmon Report 8/1/12

By Wisconsin fishing charter Capt. Jim Hirt
King Salmon Fishing Has Maxed Out in Milwaukee!
Surface temperature is up to 74 degrees and the fish are 40 feet to bottom. The weather has been great! In about a month the four year old Chinooks will run the rivers. Now is your chance to wrestle the biggest KINGS of the year. Fishing has been exciting with a mixed bag of all species. Mostly Chinooks, Rainbows and Coho. Chinook to 19 pounds are screaming line and all are enjoying some great action. Fish from 100 to 180 feet of water anywhere east of Milwaukee. Grant Courley landed the biggest fish of his young life on a Vulcan Magnum Silver Spoon! It was just under 18 pounds. Vulcan spoons are 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.
