Milwaukee - Freshwater Fishing Report

Milwaukee Fishing Lake Michigan Salmon Report 5/8/12

By Wisconsin fishing charter Capt. Jim Hirt
Wind & Waves Chinooks a Plenty!
Weather continues to be a factor. It should get better soon. The action continues strong when you can get out. Fish from 30 to 200 feet of water. If its slow in close to shore head east for deeper water! Most anglers reporting good success on all species. The hot bait was the regular size Reaper Glow spoons made by www.badgertackle.com We also had action on Spin Doctors or orange flashers and flies.

Our best presentations are 2,3,4,and 5 color Cortland lead core and downriggers 12 down to five feet off the bottom. The fish have been on regular and magnum spoons. The Vulcan Magnum and regular Reaper spoons by Badger Tackle have caught most of our fish. Six inch orange dodgers and Johnnie Peanut Flies are also doing a good job. Our best boat speed is 1.7 to 2.0 mph. Slide Divers are producing very well set to #2 with 70 feet of line out.

Head northeast, southeast or due east out the north gap Milwaukee and fish in 45 to 70 feet of water. Out in front of the water filtration plant is a good option for small boat anglers. Water color may be an issue if it is cloudy move in and out of the cloudy water for the best action. The color break is holding most of the fish.
