Fishing Report for Lake Michigan - Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Milwaukee - Freshwater Fishing Report

Charter Salmon Fishing Milwaukee 7/25/06

Charter Salmon Fishing Milwaukee 7/25/06 By Capt. Jim Hirt Fishing report for Lake Michigan Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The hot weather is here and the fish are putting on weight. Action has been steady and predictable. At first light look for the big Chinooks, Coho and Brown Trout in the top 40 feet. All presentations are working. Try Slide Divers set to #2 with 65 feet of Power Pro line out or conventional mono divers with 80 to 100 feet of line out. Most magnum spoons in silver/green, silver/blue or Glow in the dark are working. I like the Reapers or Vulcan magnums. Downriggers are also good with spoons or rotators and blue or green flies. Run half cores of lead early with spoons. Later in the morning about 730 am follow the fish down and out to deeper water. I set up in 45 feet at first light and when action slows down I move to over 100 feet for Rainbows up top and Salmon at the temp break to 50 degrees. Temperature is the key. Find the break and work above and below it. As with all fish reports they are for yesterday. You must have the tools to locate temperature when you come out. A fish locator will also help. Keep a constant eye on the number of fish you are marking and their depth. Troll east and west until you start marking fish. Then work north and south in that depth. If it's clear and calm, you may have to run long leads of 50-100 feet on the Slide Divers and downriggers. Watch your speed! Kick up your speed to 2.4 to 2.7 for Rainbows and between 1.8 and 2.4 for Kings. The warm water Kings like a slower speed. Fish on!!
