Lake Michigan Salmon Fishing Report

The cold water has moved deep and so have the fish. We had several factors working against us this week. The remnants of the strong NE blow we had last weekend, a cold front that stalled right on top of us and a full moon. These factors lead to some tough trout and salmon fishing. We were able to find fish in 250-300 feet of water for our customers. Flasher/flies, meat rigs and spoons all seemed about equal for productivity. Mixed veggies mag spoons, white or green flashers with Poseidon 50/50 flies, Musselhead meat rigs behind chrome spin doctors all produced multiple fish. The nice part of this past week was the cold water was only down 50-60ft so it was easily reached once you got deep enough to find it. The fish seem to be in small pockets so don’t hesitate to mark a spot if you get a bite and turn back around and work back through the same area. Currents are a real factor out deep so pay special attention to your rigger cables, dipsys and boards to make sure both sides of the boat are pulling the same. We need some strong west wind or at least a few days of stable weather. We are heading into August where we catch the biggest fish of the year!! Get out there and get some!!

 

Tight lines and good luck!!,

Lake Michigan Salmon Fishing Report

Lake Michigan – Fishing has been fantastic one day, spotty the next. If you can find a pod of fish and stay on them you are in for great fishing. This past week, we have had the best luck in the near shore waters from 60-100 feet of water. We are still running similar setups to what we have run the last few weeks. We are still running white flashers with little boy blue Poseidon flies but have also added Musselhead meat rigs behind 10in Spin Doctors to the mix. We still keep a couple coho rigs on short cores which have taken both coho and rainbows.

The strong N/NE winds we have had the last couple days will certainly change things up. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram for pictures and reports.

Tight lines and good luck!!

Lake Michigan Fishing Tips & Report

What a difference a week makes. Fishing is on fire off the Port of Milwaukee once again. The coho salmon have showed up in big numbers again. Kings are starting to show up in greater numbers and there are some absolute slobs being caught. This might be the year for the allusive 40 pounder! There are also plenty or rainbows and lakers around to keep our guests busy. The best action for us has been found in 120-190 feet of water.

Coho Salmon – We are still running small dodgers and spin doctors with 2 inch flies on short cores to target both surface feeding coho and rainbows.

King Salmon – White flashers with either little boy blue or aqua colored flies on downriggers as well as 8in spin doctors on wire dipsys have been the most productive. Lakers and bigger cohos have been hitting these setups as well.

The action will just get better from here on out. Get out and get some!!

Tight lines,
Capt. Tim

Lake Michigan Fishing Report – July 5, 2018

I apologize for missing my report last week. Unfortunately, Lake Michigan fishing has been slow and there hasn’t been much to report. I will always keep my reports 100% honest and fishing has been tough. Theres always been a point where fishing slows as the lake begins to set up. We are right in the middle of that setup period. We have had days where we have caught 10-15 fish and days where we are coming to the dock with 2-5 fish. Constant E-NE wind has not helped our cause at all. As far as whats working, we are still running standard coho rigs off of short lead cores for both coho and rainbows. Rainbows have been saving the day lately!! Pro King flashers and Poseidon flys have been good for kings and lakers on deep riggers. Charlie Special in white has been the best flasher paired with a Naughty Leprechaun fly. Fishing will only get better from here on out!!

Good luck and tight lines,
Captain Tim.
