West is best

Anglers are catching all species and you find the fish of your choice by working the temperature preference of your quarry.

Reaper spoons by Badger Tackle have been the ticket out deep and in the harbor. Reaper spoons are made by



Our best presentations are 8 color Cortland lead core for Rainbows to 14 pounds on Church Walleye Planner boards. Downriggers 40 to 130 down and divers set to #2 with 125 to 150 feet of line out with the ring. Fish have been on regular and magnum spoons in a blue and silver or green and silver pattern. Our best boat speed is 1.7 to 2.0 mph on the Depth Raider.


Cold water is out over 100 feet of water 80 feet and down. Set up in 100 feet and troll east. Whitefish Bay is the shortest distance to deep water. Harbor fishing is turning on and on lumpy days you will find big Chinook on plugs and spoons. Out in front of the water filtration plant in 60 feet of water is a good option for small boat anglers. The water is warmer in 60 however this has not slowed the action. Have a great fishing season. Let's go fishing!! Jim charters out of Milwaukee, WI. with Blue Max Charters.
