Coho and Lake Trout Action Milwaukee!
Coho Salmon and Lake Trout predicable but not a given. 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! Kip and Rip Lilja had a great charter with this 11 pound 2oz Lake Trout and a limit of Coho.
Coho are coming on small size spoons and dodger flies. Reapers and Vulcans made by http://www.badgertackle.com have been working for us. The small silver Vulcan has been hot on the lead cores. Six inch flashers or dodgers with green or blue Howies peanut flies must be part of your presentation for Coho. Coho are in the top 35 feet. Steady action on Slide Divers set to #3 no ring and 35 feet of line out. Tie your flies 14.5 inches on 6 inch dodgers, 24 inches for 6 inch flashers. All orange dodgers and flashers. I hope this helps.
Lake Trout are taking magnum spoons. Run 2,3,4,and 5 color Cortland lead core and downriggers 12 to 48 feet down.
Chinooks are slow with a few on magnum spoons 30 to 45 down. Speed has been very critical with the 46 degree water. I use the Depth Raider to measure speed at the ball. The big Chinook are hitting on Reaper Magnum Glow spoons at first light. The boat speed of 1.9 to 2.2 has been best.
Fish are scattered from the break wall and all the way out north of Milwaukee to 140 feet. It can be a zoo in close with all the traffic and it may be better to head out the north gap Milwaukee 70 degrees and fish northeast out to 70 to 140 feet of water. Have a great fishing season. Let's go fishing! Note All alone we put together groups at $125 per person. Jim charters out of Milwaukee, WI. with Blue Max Charters.
