Lake Michigan

Recommended Posts

I know it's a ways away but when is the best time of the year to go Salmon fishing on Lake Michigan? A few of us are thinking of going out of Port Washington or Algoma this summer and I wanted some idea about when to make a reservaion. Which of these two ports do you recomend? We live in the north metro area.

We usually go out there about the last week in July and have had real good success. I would tend to stay with Algoma, not to say the others arne't as good just my personal experience. Check out the sportsman show in March, there are a lot of good charters that will be there ask the guides when to make a reservation. Good Luck.

setterguy...Thanks, I now have somewhere to start. I go to the March Sportshow every year so I will keep my eye open for an Algoma charter. Is it best to go out for 8 or 10 hours straight or do 4 hours in the afternoon and then 4 hours the next morning? We are planning on staying overnight on a Saturday.

I recommend going out of Algoma, which I have done several times. I wouldn't know if it is better than other ports, but that is what I have been told by people that should know. Check out RV Charters in Algoma..they do a great job. On the time of the year that you should go we have had luck in August but you are supposed to catch more of the 20+lbers in september

The Sportshow starts next week and I would still like some more suggestions about where/when to go fishing on Lake Michigan before I get to the show. Thanx again for the replys!

I havn't chartered on lake MI, but have fished it in my own boat a little. From what I know you'll find good fishing at each port, but as the season goes on the bite gets hotter further north. We've done very well on cohos out of port washington and racine in july, less good for kings out of sturgoen bay in August, but that was partly due to our boat being too small. So depending on when you want to go, you'll find good fishing somewhere.

afta: I've been out of port with the Fox brothers. Nice boats and good time. Out of Sheboygan Dumper Dan is also very good. I'll see if I can find web sites to post.

    • Well Thank God for your wife. Shes a saint. 😇
    • 1 x 6 untreated red cedar bds cut to 15" for the weber has worked good for me. You can get lots of cooks on one board.  It's a lot cheaper than getting them at a grill store. The salmon looks good!
    • Yes, it's Food Grade cedar! 😋
    • Seeing the plank brings up a question.   Is that cedar that is sold as cooking planks any different than the stuff sold at the lumber yard for various purposes, like siding or roofing or docks?   
    • solo o... FALTA PESCAAA.. 
    • Last friday of lent and Coborns had a flash sale on fresh salmon so I put some on my overpriced pellet grill.   Good thing my wife talks me into sacrificing eating meat on Fridays of lent, you know, for Jesus.    
    • Got up early and put this small piece of brisket on my overpriced pellet smoker. I've never done one this small but my buddy who owns a meat market gave it to me at half price to get rid of it. It's  almost foiling time now at 10:30 am.
    • I’m in St. Cloud for Easter weekend, and decided to check out nearby Little Rock Creek. I had very low expectations. There’s a few easements, and a nice little wildlife management area, but the creek really isn’t very fishable. Water was pretty high, and banks were flooded. Overhanging brush would make fishing impossible in summer. Didn’t catch anything. Wasn’t disappointed though. Now I know not to bother again. Was still a nice morning for a walk in the country.
    • Haha. So, her boots kept falling off so much (several sizes too big), she eventually put them on the wrong feet. I tried telling her that, which is always a losing battle on my part. I thought maybe, that if they were on the wrong feet, they would stay on better. They did not.   This is the best time of year to take kids out trout fishing. No leaves on the trees, brush is still dead and matted down, so casting and walking are super easy.
