Milwaukee Fishing Lake Michigan Salmon Report 8/8/11
By Milwaukee Wisconsin fishing charter Capt. Jim Hirt
Milwaukee enjoys good fishing after east wind !
Our numbers have been great the last four days. All species have been active with warm water on top the fish have pushed down. Leadcores and divers best with action on downriggers as well. Magnum spoons are a good bet for the big fish. Surface water has warmed to 76 degrees and most of the action is 40 to 66 feet down.

My top producer has been Reaper and Vulcan magnum spoons on 6, 8 and 10 color leadcores. Throw in a flasher fly on the downrigger and keep moving till you find action. Coho will hit all size spoons from 30 to 55 down off downriggers fifty to one hundred feet behind the ball. Tons of Rainbows hitting at the same depth or a little higher. Looking for Reapers and Vulcans made by http://www.badgertackle.com you may only order them online. Try them their shipping is cheap and they arrive fast. Ten color lead behind a Church Walleye Board is one of our best presentations. Wire divers have replaced the braid divers set to #2 with 100-160 feet if line out. Silver spoons have 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 2.0 to 2.2 has been best. Don't forget the Lake Trout near the bottom magnum Reaper glow spoons SLOW, SLOW, SLOW 1.5 or less will net Poor Mans Lobster. Currents are crazy out there if your not catching fish change directions and speed.
Fish east of Milwaukee 100 to 170 feet of water. Head out the Main gap Milwaukee north or south the best action. Have a great fishing season. Let's go fishing!
