Milwaukee Fishing Lake Michigan Salmon Report 6/27/12

Milwaukee Fishing Lake Michigan Salmon Report 6/27/12

By Wisconsin fishing charter Capt. Jim Hirt
Bows a plenty in Milwaukee
This may sound like a broken record but nothing has changed. Surface temperature is up to 57 degrees and the fish are 30 feet to bottom. The weather has been perfect fishing has been consistent. Heavy coolers the last four days with mostly Chinooks, Rainbows (Bows) and Coho. Chinook to 18 pounds are screaming line and all are enjoying some great action. Fish from 60 to 125 feet of water anywhere east of Milwaukee. The hot bait for Rainbow Trout was the Magnum size Reaper Watermelon spoons made by We also had action on orange flashers and flies for Coho.

Our best presentations are 8 color Cortland lead core and downriggers 30 to 65 down or five feet off the bottom. Fish have been on regular and magnum spoons in a blue and silver or green and silver pattern. The Vulcan Magnum or Reaper Magnum spoons by Badger Tackle have caught most of our fish. Six inch orange dodgers and Johnnie Peanut Flies are also doing a good job on Coho. Our best boat speed is 2.0 to 2.1 mph on the Depth Raider. Slide Divers are producing very well set to #1.5 with 50 to 85 feet of line out with the ring.

Head north south or due east compass bearing and set up in 65 feet of water. Out in front of the water filtration plant is a good option for small boat anglers the fish seem to be closer to shore in that location. Boats are fishing the gaps but I haven’t fished it try this at first light. Have a great fishing season. Let’s go fishing!! Jim charters out of Milwaukee, WI. with Blue Max Charters.
