Fish Report 4/25/2010 Milwaukee Fishing Lake Michigan

By Capt. Jim Hirt

April fishing remains very good when you can get out. The weather has created some problems with presentation and access to the best fishing areas. Most of our charter trips are catching limits on Lake Trout with good numbers on Brown Trout as well. East wind has caused the water to become cloudy near the shore and harbor gaps. Glow spoons like the Nestor Wobbler Sun Burn are taking fish in this cloudy water. The water flowing into Milwaukee harbor is 58 degrees and the water at the river mouth is too stained to produce fish. We have been fishing the temp breaks at the harbor gaps and north of Milwaukee in 35 to 50 feet of water. Lots of bait fish around. Our best presentations are 3,4,5,and 6 color Cortland lead core and downriggers 20 to 35 feet down. The fish have been mostly been on magnum spoons. The Reaper Magnum Peacock Silver spoon by Badger Tackle have caught most of our fish sold at Michigan Stinger NBK and most of their silver orange spoons are also working for browns. Depending on wind direction the north and south gaps are producing fish. Chinook fishing has been slow they should show up in numbers soon. Our best boat speed is 2.1 mph. Slide Divers are producing very well set to #1 with 35 feet of line out. Have a great fishing season. Let's go fishing!! Jim charters out of Milwaukee, WI. with Blue Max Charters.
