Milwaukee, Coho Season Has Arrived! |
By Milwaukee Wisconsin fishing charter Capt. Jim Hirt
Coho and Chinook Report 5/21/2018 Salmon are here! 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. When I post you will get it fast! Great fishing morning for Kris and company! Limit of Coho not bad. We had a great time. Two 17 pound Kings on Saturday morning trip
It was mostly a 00 dodgers and Howie fly bite with a few fish on spoons. The pattern hasn’t changed. A mixed bag of Coho, and Chinooks with limits possible. The big Chinooks are also in. Chinook are coming on small or magnum size spoons. Reapers and Vulcans made by http://www.badgertackle.com have been working for us. The small silver Vulcan in green, blue or orange has been hot on the downriggers. Run them 50 feet behind the ball 25 feet down to the bottom. Six inch dodgers with green or blue Howie’s peanut flies also caught fish. Tie your flies 14.5 inches on 6 inch dodgers. Use all orange dodgers and flashers. I hope this helps. Slide Diver are producing with flies set at 3 no ring 35 feet of line out.
No Lake Trout today.
No Browns today.
No report of any Rainbows
For all fish speed has been very critical with the warmer 51 degree water. I use the Depth Raider to measure speed at the ball. The Chinook are hitting Reaper Magnum Glow spoons at first light and blue or green with silver back all day. The boat speed of 2.0 to 2.4 has been best. The faster speed triggered the Chinook action.
Fish are hanging in close to shore or the break wall. We did not get out over 50 feet of water yesterday. Follow the shoreline working 40 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.
