    Milwaukee, Chins in Chins out Fishing!



    By Milwaukee Wisconsin fishing charter Capt. Jim Hirt

    Chinook Report 9/12/2016! Join us in Milwaukee! Hard fighting three year olds or harbor four year old Kings take your choice. Headed out to deep water with the Hutchins family to wrestle a nice mixed bag of Chinook, Rainbows and Lake Trout. To get my fish reports and how to videos first go to
    http://www.jimhirt.com By subscribing you will keep ahead of the other anglers. When I post you will get it first!



    How

    West wind has not changed the report or fishing. The key right now is to find the break to cold water. Let your locator tell you if the bait fish are around. Your reward will be a steady bite on all size and types of fish. Howie flies are my go to on the wires and Reaper or Vulcan spoons on 8 color lead core are taking the Rainbow Trout. The big three year old Chinooks are active every trip. The action and location has been from 150-220 feet of water. Chinooks went for regular size Vulcan spoons in silver or green/silver. Many Chinooks over ten pounds this week most averaged 8-13 pounds. White or green Howie’s flies also working well run behind a white flasher. The big Chinooks are active 100 down on downriggers. Reapers and Vulcans made by
    http://www.badgertackle.com have been working for us. They have a Buy Four get one free special this season and free shipping. The small or magnum silver Vulcan in green or blue has also been good on the downriggers. Run them 50 feet behind the ball 100 feet down to the bottom. Running all wire divers now with a 2.0 set at 155 feet of line out.


    Lake Trout action is great they were hitting the Chinook tackle.


    Brown Trout action was slow in deep water with reports of some being caught in the harbor on Magnum Reaper spoons.


    Rainbow Trout were hitting Vulcan Dolphin Green and Silver spoons in the top 40 feet.


    Speed

    For all fish speed has been very critical with the warmer 75 degree water. The temp break to 57 is down 100 feet in 150 feet of water. I use the Depth Raider to measure speed and temp at the ball. The boat speed of 2.0 to 2.2 has been best.


    Where!

    I fished mostly out over 100 feet all week. Action for us has been in 100 to 160 feet. Near shore action on McKinley pier has been improving. Some browns or kings being caught on Magnum Vulcan spoons. Boat anglers are getting four year old Chinooks as they come to the end of there life. It’s a zoo inside the harbor and not for the faint of heart. We did not get out over 160 feet of water yesterday. Head 70 degrees north in Milwaukee Bay and set lines in 100 feet. Troll north to south have a great fishing season. Let's go fishing! Note We are offering an extra hour for $35 when added to a five hour fishing charter.

    For all fish speed has been very critical with the warmer 57 degree water. I use the Depth Raider to measure speed at the ball. The boat speed of 2.0 to 2.2 has been best. The faster speed triggered the Chinook action.



    Where!


    I fished mostly out over 90 feet again. East wind has pushed the warmer water in. Fish 90 to 200 feet but anglers near shore are catching some fish. We did not get out over 190 feet of water yesterday. Head north in Whitefish Bay and set lines in 80 feet. Troll north east have a great fishing season. Let's go fishing! Note We are offering an extra hour for $35 when added to a five hour fishing charter. Jim charters out of Milwaukee, WI. with Blue Max Charters.
