Milwaukee Fishing Lake Michigan Salmon Report 9/22/11
By Milwaukee Wisconsin fishing charter Capt. Jim Hirt
West Is Best And The Fish Are In !
Warm water is out and cold water is in and the fish have followed. Feeding fish have moved to 70 feet and down 50 to the bottom. The big 20 pound Chinooks have been slow but this drop in temperature should cool the harbor and promote action in the inner harbor. Thomas Jones battled this trophy Chinook of 23 pounds 2 ounces! Glow spoons inside the break wall have been good at first light. Magnum Reapers in silver or glow on 75 foot leads my go to bait for shallow water.

My top producer the past two days for all species is Reaper and Vulcan magnum spoons on ten color leadcore rods also down riggers 55 to 70 down with spoons. Big Chinooks in close to shore are hitting Reaper Magnum Fish Fry Glow spoons 100 feet behind the ball off downriggers 20 feet down and #3 glow J-Plugs. 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. My lead cores and coppers all run behind a Church Walleye Board. When fishing in close braid divers no ring set to #4 with 40 feet line out are working. I use the Depth Raider to measure speed at the ball. The boat speed of 2.0 to 2.2 has been best.
Fish northeast out of Milwaukee north of the Filtration Plant 70 to 90 feet of water. Head out the Main gap Milwaukee 60 degrees for the best deep action. In close fish the harbor and harbor gaps at first light Have a great fishing season. Let's go fishing! Jim charters out of Milwaukee, WI. with Blue Max Charters.
