WISCONSIN: Big Kings Coho & Lake Trout filling the Cooler

Fishing Milwaukee is excellent with Big Kings Coho and Lake Trout filling the cooler. Southwest wind has pushed the warm water out. Very good action on all species working 40 to 70 feet of water in White Fish Bay three miles north of Milwaukee’s north gap.

With 48 degree surface temperature 2,3,4,5,6 and 8 color lead core are working. Travel northeast out of the North Gap about 3 miles at a 50 degrees compass for the cold water that holds the fish. Look for fish from 10 to 40 down on all presentations. Slide Divers with 100 feet of line out are a steady producer with magnum Reaper Peacock or Fish n Chip spoons. Downriggers from 20 to 40 down on long lead spoons are my go to rig with magnum silver spoons. Customers are enjoying great action on Chinook salmon to 18 pounds. A combination of Salmon and Trout in all sizes are active. The boat speed of 2.0 gave the best results.
