Milwaukee Fishing Salmon Reports September 1st 2010

Milwaukee Fishing Salmon Reports September 1st 2010

By Capt. Jim Hirt

Temperature is the answer to more fish. You will find action from 30 to 106 down when the temps are right. Look for 50 degrees and run tackle above and below the temp break. This is the place in the water column where you see a dramatic shift from the warmer surface water to the colder deeper water. This break moves with the wind and is different every day. You must present tackle for all species from the top ten feet of water to the bottom in all depths you fish. I would like to be more specific however it doesn’t work that way. Yesterday the best action was in 80 to 90 feet and you can bet that this will change tomorrow.

A nice mixed bag will be your reward. On the high lines (2,3, and 4 color lead core) the Vulcan regular size Dolphin Green Silver is picking up Rainbow Trout. Mid way down the water column in a temperature of 50 degrees use Magnum Reaper spoons in silver with green or blue green accent stripes. The Magnum Pea**** and Fish n Chip have been my go to spoons on a SWR. The Magnum Pea**** and Fish n Chip have been my go to spoon for my 5, 6, 8 and 10 color lead cores. Downriggers are also producing with the same spoons and some flasher flies. The best depths for downriggers have been 45, 60, 70 and 100 feet. The Chinooks are in depths of 30 to 140 feet of water. Lake Trout are always available near the bottom even on the slower days when you slow the boat down to 1.5 MPH measured at the ball with the Depth Raider. The Depth Raider is an essential part of your tools for trolling with the current we have on Lake Michigan. Speed up to 2.1 when working the Kings Let me tell you where and what to use.
