Milwaukee Fishing Lake Michigan Salmon Report 8/27/2013

By Milwaukee Wisconsin fishing charter Capt. Jim Hirt

All species active mostly Lake Trout with some Chinooks and Rainbows. Steady consistent fishing for the last two weeks. Geno Pilaczynski hauled in this hog when fishing with friends. To get my fish reports and how to videos first go to By subscribing you will keep ahead of the other anglers. When I post you will get it fast!

How Chinooks

Chinook and Coho are taking flies and also magnum spoons. Wire divers set to 1.5 with 70 feet of line out have been the most consistent. Chinook are coming in 85 feet of water 35 down. I use the Depth Raider to measure speed at the ball. The boat speed of 1.9 to 2.2 has been best.

How Lakers

For Lake Trout magnum Reaper glow spoons presented within inches of the bottom will bring in some hogs with the most running 8-10 pounds. A size 0 dodger and Spin N Glow may be needed on some days.

Good year for Rainbows

Lead core in 2,3,4,5,6, and eight colors are best for working the Rainbows. I like magnum spoons. Reaper Peacock has been a good choice.


Fish are marking from 70 feet and all the way out north or south of Milwaukee to 120 feet. Have a great fishing season. Let's go fishing!

Note I have openings on the schedule. I am the only charter offering an extra hour for $35 when added to any five hour charter. Jim charters out of Milwaukee, WI. with Blue Max Charters. He can be reached at 414-828-1094 or visit his web site at Copyrightę 2013, James J. Hirt, All Rights Reserved
