Milwaukee Fishing! Gaps For Success

By Milwaukee Wisconsin fishing charter Capt. Jim Hirt
Lake Michigan Salmon Fishing Report 5/15/2019 Hello all thank you for reading my reports. Join us in Milwaukee! 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!

Early May fishing is good. Most of our charter trips are catching 8 to 10 fish. Mostly Browns with some Rainbows and Coho. Not much has changed since the last report. Plenty of cold weather and rain has slowed catch rates with fewer anglers on the water. We fished sunny skies on Sunday with the wind out of the northeast at 5-10 mph to start. The wind came up and blew us off the lake. We still managed 6 for 10 in 3 hours of fishing. Most of the fish came in the top 18 feet or on the bottom. The water flowing into Milwaukee harbor is 54 degrees. We have been fishing the temp breaks in front of the river mouth and harbor gaps marking fish at all depths. Our best presentations are Church Walleye planer boards with 25 foot leads behind the boards and downriggers 20 to 35 feet down. The way I set up a planer board is with 20 lb. mono to a 1/4-ounce bead chain sinker. Use 6 feet of 15 lb. fluorocarbon leader from the sinker to a size #1 Cross Lock snap and lure. The fish have not been too particular. Some of our best producers have been Vulcan Silver Sky and Orange Slush sold at www.badgertackle.com Michigan Stinger Natural Born Killer and most of their silver orange spoons are working. Inside the harbor and depending on wind direction the north and south gaps are producing fish. The fish at the north gap came on small spoons. Silver blue spoons worked best for us running 60 feet behind the ball on downriggers 8-15 feet down. Our best boat speed was 2.2 mph. Slide Divers are producing very well set to #2 with 50 feet of line out. Have a great fishing season. Let's go fishing!! Jim charters out of Milwaukee, WI. with Blue Max Charters.
