Toyman2k Flatfish and Mag Lip are both made by Yakima bait Company. I however was using the Mag Lip. The Mag Lip is more speed Tolerant and has a "skip beat" type action that just tore up the Browns. Mag Lip is a relatively new bait and come in 5 sizes, 2.5, 3.0, 3.5, 4.5, and 5.0. Lots a great color options as well. They have a great selection over at the Fishing Hole check them out.

Spent the last few days fishing in the Milwaukee harbor. Averaged 10-12 fish a day with some very quality fish. Every fish came on the 3.5 and 4.5 Mag Lip from Yakima Bait Company. Running the 3.5 Mag Lip 100 ft back and the 4.5 Mag Lip 50 ft back hooking it up to a planerboard. Our biggest fish was over 12 pounds with the average brown between 8-10. We stayed fishing the edges of the break walls and even caught a respectable amount of fish in the river. Lots of fun!!

5 for 11 casting and trolling. Water is very dirty causing fishing to be very difficult. I struggled to find the cleanest water for trolling. Most fish on small cooper spoons and dipsy. Casting fish all came on Zips. Fished every spot I know and am not doing well due to water clarity on each being sub-par. We did get Browns up to 14 lbs so quality was OK. 1 swr down 5' orange jointed Rapala 1 40' back 13' down silver confusion 2 dipsy 1 @ 14' 1 @ 18'ol both brass confusion spoon 2 boards (switched them up w/ nothing)

Was down monday and water clarity was slightly better than the week before. That being said there was alot of wind and some rain this week. Was skeptical about doing well monday, made some adjustments and still managed 12 fish so fish are there to be had, just have to make some modifications in the dirty water.

It was not all that bad on Monday. Fishable for sure. Some areas had floating junk and as long as you avoid that it was ok. Some smaller browns were cooperative, but really was just an excuse to get the boat wet for the first time this year. Great day to be on the water.
