Milwaukee - Freshwater Fishing Report

Fish Report 7/08/2007 Milwaukee Fishing Lake Michigan

Fish Report 7/08/2007 Milwaukee Fishing Lake Michigan By Capt. Jim Hirt The lake is warming and a thermocline is setting up. The surface action has slowed and the temperature break is at 45 feet to 50 degrees. Rainbow Trout action has been best in the warmer water just above the break in sizes of 4 to 14 pounds. All our action on Rainbows has been on Reaper Magnum Fish N Chip Silver or Vulcan Dolphin Silver spoons presented on 5 and 4 color leadcore or Slide Divers with 60 foot leads set to #1 with 55 to 75 feet of line out. 80 to 120 feet of water has been best. The deep water has been slow. With two foot or less waves presentation has been easy. Four-year-old Chinooks 15 to 20 pounds has been the biggest part of the catch on magnum spoons 25 to 75 feet down. Reaper Magnum Fish N Chip, Peacock and Vulcan Magnum Silver Leaf, Silver Sky spoons on the downriggers are taking Chinooks and Lake Trout. Run the spoons 80 feet behind the downrigger ball for success. The only place you will find Reaper and Vulcan spoons is on their web site at http://www.badgertackle.com The wind has brought the temperatures near shore is up to 61 degrees on the surface and that action in has slowed. Start your trip in 70 feet of water and fish out to deeper water. Look for 52-degree or colder water. Our best presentations are planer boards with 4, 5, 8, or 10 color lead core and downriggers 40 to 75 feet down. Slide Divers are also producing set to #1 with 65 feet of line out. Our best speed was 2.0 to 2.5 mph. Have a great fishing season. Let's go fishing!! Jim charters out of Milwaukee, WI. with Blue Max Charters.
