Lake Michigan suggestion

11 posts in this topic

Does anyone have any suggestions on who, when, and where to take a charter out for some salmon this upcoming season?

Last year I went on one out of port washington I think, very good service and cool guys through nikki boy charters. They and others are at the sportshow in minneapolis. They should be able to answer any questions you have.

Memory makers out of Kenosha, went middle/end of may last year. Just missed some nice kings they had caught the first half of the day.Did an afternoon 1/2 day, did better the first hours but still ended up with 19 fish for four of us, 18 coho, 1 rainbow.

If you go early you can get in on the coho bite. Would have to be a southern port though, they don't come in big numbers further north. Usually the kings turn on mid summer, last year there was a great steelhead bite early summer.

We have been going to Michigan for almost 15 years and while every year is different we seem to have the best luck the middle of July. We have been going with the same guy for all 15 years, he is kind of a crabby S O B but he can sure fish Michigan. He is out of Algoma and now has a motel as part of his packages if you need lodging. His guide service is called Predator Charters.

I fish out of Kewaunee a few times a year in our own boat. Usually have pretty good luck.

It all depends on what time of year you want to fish and if you want to fish kings or coho's. s both migrate at slighlty different times. Certain areas at certain times will hold both of them togather and that can be a blast. As a general rule the fish start at southern end in May and migrate up the coast and end up near Kewaunee and farther north by late July and August depending on water temperatures.

I personally would go to Winthrop Harbor in May and Kewaunee in August. Somewhere in the middle in June!

Dumper Dan out of Sheyboygan has the biggest fleet on LM and has some nice packages.

I agree with TonkaBass, go to the Sport Show. There are tons of Michigan Charters there. Shopping is half the fun of booking a charter.

Any other year I would have told you Kinn's Katch out of Algoma, although the fishing was non-typical last year compared to the last 6. We bring a crew of 4 boats a couple times a year. Personally I would wait a bit and see how the bite progresses this year.
