Lake Michigan Fishing Report – June 18, 2018

Lake Michigan Fishing

What a difference a couple days make. Beginning of the week we were still locked in on the coho salmon bite with the occasional king mixed in. Fishing changed dramatically starting Thursday. Storms and constant wind changes really changed the fishing. We went from consistent limits to scraping together 5-10 fish per trip. Others started targeting lake trout while we continued the hunt for silver fish. The lake is clearly starting to set up to its normal summertime conditions which often makes fishing tough during the transition. We were lucky enough to stumble across a really nice 26lb king salmon while searching for a stable bite. There are some really big salmon around and fishing for them should just get better in the next week or so. Right now, white flashers with aqua flies are taking kings. Coho rigs are catching coho and steelhead. Metal dodgers with spin n glows fished along the bottom have been producing lake trout.

Milwaukee Fishing Report

Lake Michigan – Fishing off the coast of Milwaukee continues to be fantastic. The coho have begun to spread out more than they were earlier in the spring making finding them a little more challenging. The best strategy we have found is to set up in 60 feet of water and troll east. When we hook up, we’ll work that area a few times before continuing east. Another strategy is to troll east until you hook up and then concentrate on that depth trolling north or south. The best baits have been the same all spring. The only exception is we are running the bigger 2” flies behind the 6” orange dodgers now. As always, it’s a good idea to run some king setups on deeper riggers while searching for the cohos. This last week, white flashers with green or little boy blue flies have been best. I think we are all ready for some nice West winds after dealing with all of the N-NE winds we’ve had all week!!!

Good luck and tight lines,

Lake Michigan Fishing Report

We have spent the last week exclusively on Lake Michigan. We have experienced stellar coho salmon fishing with consistent limit catches for our guests. We have been finding the coho schooled up in anywhere between 40-200 feet of water. That’s not very specific, but the coho have been on the move almost daily. Theres really no rhyme or reason to their movements so far this spring. The key is to be prepared to search for them. When you find them, mark it on your graph and work back through the area a few times. We have been using standard coho rigs behind planer boards. We have also found that 8-inch flashers with king salmon sized flies on deep riggers has also been consistent for the coho as well as the king salmon. More and more king salmon are showing up off Milwaukee. As the lake settles into a more typical summer pattern, we will begin targeting them.

Good luck and tight lines!!
