Many Kings Over Fifteen Pounds In Milwaukee!

Milwaukee - Freshwater Fishing Report

Milwaukee Fishing Lake Michigan Salmon Report 5/29/12

By Wisconsin fishing charter Capt. Jim Hirt
Many Kings Over Fifteen Pounds In Milwaukee!
Surface temperature is up to 53 degrees and the fish are top to bottom. The weather has been full sun, rainy and at times windy but the fishing has been consistent. Heavy coolers the last five days with and all species mix. Chinook to 20 pounds are screaming line and all are enjoying some great action. Fish from 60 to 125 feet of water north of Milwaukee. All alone we put together groups at $125 per person. The hot bait was the Magnum size Reaper Fish n Chip spoons made by www.badgertackle.com We also had action on orange flashers and flies.

How!
Our best presentations are 8 color Cortland lead core and downriggers 40 to 75 down or five feet off the bottom. Ran the SWR over the weekend at 45 feet and it produced very well. The 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. Six inch orange dodgers and Johnnie Peanut Flies are also doing a good job on Coho. Our best boat speed is 1.7 to 2.0 mph. Slide Divers are producing very well set to #2 with 70 to 125 feet of line out with the ring.

Where!
Head northeast at 47 degrees compass bearing and set up in 65 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. Water color has cleared up so their should be some action in close to shore but I haven't fished it try this at first light.
