Milwaukee Fishing Remains Steady!
Surface temperature is 60 degrees and the fish are in the harbor and out to 190 feet of water. To get my fish reports and how to videos first go to http://www.jimhirt.com By subscribing you will keep ahead of the other anglers. When I post you will get it fast!
Anglers are catching all species and you find the fish of your choice by working the temperature preference of your quarry. Reaper spoons by Badger Tackle have been the ticket out deep and in the harbor. Reaper spoons are made by http://www.badgertackle.com
Our best presentations are 8 color Cortland lead core for Rainbows to 10 pounds on Church Walleye Planner boards. Downriggers 70 to 130 down for two and three year old Chinooks and divers set to #2 with 125 to 150 feet of line out with the ring. Fish have been on regular and magnum spoons in a blue and silver or green and silver pattern. Our best boat speed is 1.7 to 2.0 mph on the Depth Raider.
Water colder than 52 is out over 100 feet of water 70 feet and down. Set up in 100 feet and troll northeast. Whitefish Bay is the shortest distance to deep water. Harbor fishing is best at first light. On lumpy days you will find big spawning Chinook on plugs and spoons in the harbor. Out in front of the water filtration plant in 60 feet of water is a good option on calm days for small boat anglers. The water is warmer in 60 however this has not slowed the action. I caught big Chinooks to 16 pounds in that area over the weekend. Have a great fishing season. Let's go fishing!! Jim charters out of Milwaukee, WI. with Blue Max Charters.
