Milwaukee Fishing Lake Michigan Salmon Report 7/18/11
By Milwaukee Wisconsin fishing charter Capt. Jim Hirt
Consistent and productive fishing in Milwaukee!
Coho are the majority of the catch with some Chinook salmon to 19 pounds like this 16 pound 12 ounce King caught by Bill Smith. Bill caught his trophy on a Reaper Magnum Peacock spoon. Surface water has warmed to 65 degrees and most of the action is 45 to 65 down in the 48 degree water. Magnum spoons are working on the leadcores.

With the warmer water the most aggressive Coho and Chinooks are coming on magnum spoons. Reapers and Vulcans made by http://www.badgertackle.com have been working for us. The Magnum Reaper Fish n Chip is the hot bait for the bright blue sky condition we have had the last five days. I have been running this spoon on all twelve of my lines and getting action all day long. 150 copper behind a Church Walleye Board is one of our best presentations. Six, eight and ten color leadcores are also working. Coho are from 25 feet to 50 down on downriggers as well. Chinooks are in pockets of colder 46-48 degree water. Wire divers have replaced the braid divers set to #2 with 60 to 120 feet if line out. The surface is almost sixty degrees and it is time to work the Rainbow Trout in the top twenty feet. Two and Three color leadcore with the Regular Vulcan Dolphin Green and Silver has taken Rainbows to twelve pounds the last several days. A little faster speed about 2.5 is required for Rainbows. I use the Depth Raider to measure speed at the ball. The boat speed of 1.9 to 2.2 has been best.
Fish east of Milwaukee 45 to 130 feet of water. Head out the Main gap Milwaukee 65 degrees. Fish northeast in White Fish Bay for the best action. Have a great fishing season. Let's go fishing!
