Milwaukee Fishing Lake Michigan Salmon Report 9/7/2013

By Milwaukee Wisconsin fishing charter Capt. Jim Hirt

Spawning salmon slow with better fishing out!

Let me explain where and why. 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

Harbor fishing has been best at first light with glow magnum Reaper spoons, J-plugs and crank baits. Jiggers and shore anglers are having some success with spawn and jigs. I have also had some fish on white flashers with aqua Howie flies.

In the deeper water small Vulcans or Reapers will work on 4,5,6, and 8 colors of lead core. Chinook are coming in 85 feet of water 65 down. You may try under 40 feet of water when the temperature is cold in shallow. I was in there the other day and had a nice box of 5 pound Chins with a few Brown Trout mixed in. I use the Depth Raider to measure speed at the ball. The boat speed of 1.9 to 2.0 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 when you are out over 160 feet of water. I like magnum spoons. Reaper Peacock has been a good choice.


Watch your temperature and fish in 55 0r less degrees of water. Fish are marking from 30 feet and all the way out north or south of Milwaukee to 220 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
