Milwaukee - Freshwater Fishing Report

Milwaukee Fishing Lake Michigan Salmon Report 5/20/12

By Wisconsin fishing charter Capt. Jim Hirt
Limit Catches Are The Norm In Milwaukee!
Only thing better than the weather has been the fishing. Don't miss this opportunity to crank in some great eating. The last couple of trips we have everything but Brown Trout. Some Kings to 15 pounds yesterday! Fish from 80 to 125 feet of water. Some action in closer to shore but the hot action is out. Note For the month of May mention this report and receive one free hour of fishing with a five hour charter booked and taken in May!!!! 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.

Our best presentations are 5 and 6 color Cortland lead core and downriggers 25 to 45 down or five feet off the bottom. 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 90 feet of line out with the ring.

Head northeast, southeast or due east out the north gap Milwaukee and fish in 80 to 125 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.
Have a great fishing season. Let's go fishing!! Jim charters out of Milwaukee, WI. with Blue Max Charters. He can be reached at 414-828-1094 or visit his web site at www.bluemaxcharters.com Copyrightę 2012, James J. Hirt, All Rights Reserved.
