Early spring Coho plentiful in a mixed bag!
We were out the last five days except for Saturday. High winds and waves have held down the pressure of the small boat anglers. When will this ugly wet cold weather end? Don’t miss any opportunities to get out.
Coho are coming on all size spoons Reapers and Vulcans made by http://www.badgertackle.com have been working for us. Six inch flashers or dodgers with green or blue Johnnie peanut flies must be part of your presentation. Coho and Chinooks are in the top 30 feet with action on Slide Divers set to #2 and 25 feet of line out. Run 2,3,4,and 5 color Cortland lead core and downriggers 12 to 45 feet down.
Head out the main gap Milwaukee and fish north out to 40 to 50 feet of water. Water color may be an issue if it is cloudy move in and out of the cloudy water for the best action. The color break is holding most of the fish. Fish slow, very slow for great action. Lots of big Lake Trout out there too long leads on downriggers with magnum spoons will put them in the box.
Have a great fishing season. Let's go fishing!!
