Lake Michigan Salmon Fishing Report 5/29/2019 Hello all thank you for reading my reports. Amanda and Jesse worked together to land this 15 pound 4 ounce Chinook and a bunch of Coho. It was great to fish with them. Join us in Milwaukee! 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.

We had our ups and downs the past week. However I see improvement as we progressed through the week. The water is warming up and there is pods of forage from 70 feet of water to shore. The recent changes has brought some Chinooks and Coho in. Most of the fish came in the top 28 feet. I tried north of Milwaukee but did better going south. We have been fishing the temp breaks in front of the harbor gaps and south of the green can marking fish at all depths. Our best presentations are Church Walleye planer boards with 25 foot leads behind the boards and downriggers 20 to 35 feet down. The way I set up a planer board is with 20 lb. mono to a 1/2-ounce bead chain sinker. Use 6 feet of 15 lb. fluorocarbon leader from the sinker to a size #1 Cross Lock snap and lure. The fish have been particular. Some of our best producers have been Vulcan Silver Sky and Orange Slush sold at http://www.badgertackle.com Silver blue spoons worked best for us running 60 feet behind the ball on downriggers 8-15 feet down. Our best boat speed was 2.2 mph. Slide Divers are producing very well set to #2 with 50 feet of line out. Have a great fishing season. Let's go fishing!!
