June Salmon Fishing (Wisconsin)
Summer is almost here and the fishing continues to be red HOT!! June has started off where May left us with solid numbers of Coho salmon and more Rainbow trout, Lake trout and Chinook (King) salmon moving into the fishing ground out of the port of Kenosha Wi.
Large masses of bait fish are concentrated in 120fow to 190fow, we are catching fish near the surface with Church tackle planner boards and Bullbuster mono dipsey’s with Dreamweaver spindoctor coho killer in both small and large sizes set just out of sight and on our bullbuster braid dipsey’s with 8″ whie flasher and white flies and Dreamweaver 8″ coho killer spin doctors set between 50′ and 70′ on our line counters. Our down riggers have been producing anywhere between 25’down to the bottom landing fish using an assortment of Michigan stinger spoons, dodger/spin & glow flies, and 8″ white flashers with Howie tackle LLB and froggy flies or Isn’t no joke, LBB, or froggy Fire Flies.
When leaving the port of Kenosha we look for 50 degree water that has been holding the bait and predator fish where we set our trolling speed between 2.4 to 2.7mph for the best results. Another productive method has been using our copper line rods at lengths of 75′ and 150′ pulled behind the Church tackle planner boards using a number of spoons in color patterns of white, blue, green or orange.
The official start of summer is only a week away and the forecast for this weekend is calling for 90’s with heat index or over 100 degrees. We should start seeing thermoclines setup in Lake Michigan that will change depths with the wind and currents. We have been very busy booking charters and just have a few weekend dates remaining in August and starting to book into September already. This is going to be a year of BIG fish get your group together and give us a call to enjoy a great day on the Great Lakes!!
