Milwaukee Fishing Lake Michigan Salmon Report 5/17/2015 |
By Milwaukee Wisconsin fishing charter Captain Jim Hirt
Tough But Steady Fishing Milwaukee!
Harbor and gap fishing good to slow for Brown Trout with a few small Chinook. Small spoons or crank baits best bait in the harbor. Badger Tackle Reaper or Vulcan spoons getting it done in the regular size.

Harbor and gap Chinook are coming on Vulcan or Reaper regular combinations of green/silver, all silver and blue/silver. My first choice is first light with glow spoons. The spoons are best when run 100 feet behind the downrigger ball and 26 feet down. There are also Chinooks are also being taken in 65 feet of water in White Fish Bay 45 down to the bottom. The only place you will find Reaper and Vulcan spoons is on my web site at http://www.badgertackle.com
How Lake Trout
Action for Lakers has been the best bet for fish in the cooler. Try long lead spoons and SWR rigs 45 to 60 feet down. Lead cores are also a good choice. Best action has been in 65 feet.
Some scattered reports of Coho being caught. The surface is 46 degrees and it will be several weeks until they arrive.
Fish are mixed up and scattered. Fish the entire water column in 20 to 100 feet of water for the best action. Our best speed was 2.0 to 2.2 mph measured at the ball with the Depth Raider.
Have a great fishing season. Jim charters out of Milwaukee, WI. with Blue Max Charters. He can be reached at 414-828-1094 or visit his web site at http://www.bluemaxcharters.com Copyrightę 2015, James J. Hirt, All Rights Reserved.
