Milwaukee Fishing Salmon Reports August 9th 2010
By Capt. Jim Hirt
The fish have been moving around and some days are great and some days you have to work for fish. Most productive presentation the last several days has been Magnum Reaper spoons in silver with green or blue green accent stripes. The Magnum Peacock and Fish n Chip have been my go to spoon for my 4,5,6 and 8 color lead cores. Downriggers are also producing with the same spoons and some flasher flies. The best depths for downriggers have been 25, 35, 45 and 60 feet. As you can tell the high lines are taking most of the fish in depths of 60 to 100 feet. We have had some great Coho to 11 pounds with many Chinook in all sizes up to 22 pounds. Lake Trout are always available even on the slower days when you slow the boat down to 1.5 MPH measured at the ball with the Depth Raider. The Depth Raider is an essential part of your tools for trolling with the current we have on Lake Michigan. Speed up to 2.1 when working the Kings. Shore anglers are having decent action with cold water now at the break walls near the bottom. Let me tell you where and what to use. To see my how to video fish report go to
Travel northeast out of the North Gap about 3 miles at a 60 degrees compass for the cold water that holds the fish. Look for fish from 20 to 60 down on all presentations. Slide Divers with 70 feet of line out are a steady producer with magnum Reaper Peacock or Fish n Chip spoons. Glow spoons have also been working all day long in the magnum size like the Reaper Fish Fry.
