Coho, Chinook and Brown Trout filling the cooler!
We were out the last three days and action is good to excellent. Finally a weekend with moderate to light wind this allowed everyone to enjoy the great fishing on Lake Michigan out of Milwaukee.
Coho are coming on all size spoons Reapers and Vulcans made by http://www.badgertackle.com have been working for us. Six inch flashers or dodgers with green or blue Johnnie peanut flies must be part of your presentation for Coho. A hot presentation for us was a size O orange dodger with a 21.5 inch lead to a medium size blue fly. Coho are in the top 20 feet and Chinooks are 30 to 45 down. Steady action on Slide Divers set to #2 and 25 feet of line out. Run 2,3,4,and 5 color Cortland lead core and downriggers 12 to 45 feet down.
Head out the main gap Milwaukee and fish east out to 40 to 60 feet of water. 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. Fish slow, very slow for great action. The Lake Trout bite has slowed down with a few on long leads on downriggers with magnum spoons along the bottom.
