Milwaukee, Mixed Bag Fishing!

Milwaukee, Mixed Bag Fishing!

By Milwaukee Wisconsin fishing charter Capt. Jim Hirt
Chinook Report 9/22/2016! Join us in Milwaukee! Hard fighting three year olds are still biting with plenty of Lake Trout. It’s a nice mixed bag of Chinook, Rainbows and Lake Trout. To get my fish reports and how to videos first go to By subscribing you will keep ahead of the other anglers. When I post you will get it first!

West wind has pulled the warm water out and the fish are scattered. Let your locator tell you if the bait fish are around. Your reward will be a steady bite on all size and types of fish. Howie flies are my go to on the wires and Reaper or Vulcan spoons on 2,4,5 and 6 color lead core are taking the fish above 30 feet. The big three year old Chinooks are active every trip. The action and location has been from 50-130 feet of water. Chinooks went for regular size Vulcan spoons in silver or green/silver. Many Chinooks over ten pounds this week most averaged 8-13 pounds. White or green Howie’s flies also working well run behind a white flasher. The big Chinooks are active at all depths. Reapers and Vulcans made by have been working for us. They have a Buy Four get one free special this season and free shipping. The small or magnum silver Vulcan in green or blue has also been good on the downriggers. Run them 50 feet behind the ball. Running all wire divers now with a 3.0 set at 115 feet of line out.

Lake Trout action is great they were hitting the Chinook tackle.

Brown Trout action was slow with reports of some being caught in the harbor on Magnum Reaper spoons.

Rainbow Trout were hitting Vulcan Dolphin Green and Silver spoons in the top 20 feet.

For all fish speed has been at normal pace with the 50 degree water. The temp break to 50 is down 30 feet in 50 feet of water. I use the Depth Raider to measure speed and temp at the ball. The boat speed of 2.0 to 2.2 has been best.

I fished all depths this week. Action for us has been in 50 to 130 feet. Near shore action on McKinley pier has been improving. Some browns or kings being caught on Magnum Vulcan spoons. Boat anglers are getting four year old Chinooks as they come to the end of there life. It’s a zoo inside the harbor and not for the faint of heart. We did not get out over 130 feet of water yesterday. Head 55 degrees north in Whitefish Bay and set lines in 50 feet. Troll northeast have a great fishing season. Let’s go fishing! Note We are offering an extra hour for $35 when added to a five hour fishing charter. Jim charters out of Milwaukee, WI. with Blue Max Charters.
