How
Mixed bag all week. Very inconsistent, still lots of fun. Chinooks and Coho have been playing their games. We have good days and difficult days. Chinooks went for Magnum Reaper Peacock spoons in blue/silver. White or green Howie’s flies also working well run behind a white flasher. The big Chinooks are active 90 down on downriggers. Reapers and Vulcans made by http://www.badgertackle.com have been working for us. The small silver Vulcan in green or blue has also been good on the downriggers. Run them 50 feet behind the ball 55 feet down to the bottom. Six inch flashers or dodgers with green or blue Howie’s peanut flies have been my go to bait for Coho. Tie your flies 16 inches on 6 inch dodgers, 20 inches for 6 inch flashers. All orange dodgers and flashers. I hope this helps.  Slide Diver are producing with flies set at 2 small ring 60 feet of line out.

Lake Trout action was okay all week on magnum spoons 8 color lead was best.

Brown Trout action was just ok on 2 color lead core with small spoons. One here and there.

Rainbow Trout were hitting Vulcan Dolphin Green and Silver spoons in the top 15 feet.

Speed
For all fish speed has been very critical with the warmer 60 degree water. The temp break to 53 is down 50 feet. 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. The faster speed triggered the Chinook action.

Where!
I fished anywhere from 30 to out over 100 feet. Follow the temperatures and fish the zone. Near shore action on McKinley pier has been very slow with only a few Browns being caught.  Head north in Whitefish Bay and set lines in 50 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.  He can be reached at 414-828-1094 or visit his web site at http://www.bluemaxcharters.com Copyright© 2016, James J.
