Lake Michigan suggestion

Recommended Posts

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.

    • I stick pretty simple on full chickens.... A couple of pads of garlic butter under the skin and a little olive oil rub down on DRY skin (very important to have dry skin if you want it to be crispy when you are done). Seasoned the big one with Lawry's and the small one with Weber Kick'n Chicken. Heated the grill up to 375. Both birds were done in a little over an hr..... Pretty cheap and easy - and the wife is getting sick of pork so,,,,,,
    • Agreed... that is why I took the gamble on a brand that no one had heard of at the time... but the Big Horn grills are getting picked up by more and more vendors. Hopefully they don't figure out that they are giving away profit and decide to raise their prices! On the flip side, have you shopped for a gas grill these days? Holy smokes! The char-broil 3 burner basic that cost $129.99 3 years ago is now $209.99... what gives?  
    • I bought a motorcycle from a guy a few years back only to find out he never turned the title over in his name when he bought it. If I remember right I had to write to the DMV main office with a copy of the bill of sale before they would share the past owners of the bike. Then it took some detective work but I was able to track down the first owner and get them to write a new bill of sale.  Also had an old utility trailer I bought the same way, but for that I just re-registered it as a home made trailer.  At least there is Goggle now to look up some names if you can get them. Good Luck.  
    • dat looks darn good!!!!   what seasonings this time??  
    • My concern with the Statement of Facts sheet is it talked about watercrafts with titles.    I was a first time privet party boat buyer and saw a good deal. Got over eager and didn’t really know what to look for. The hull is a 97. I purchased it with only a bill of sale. When I brought the bill of sale into the DMV they said sorry can’t put this in your name or issue registration. The name on this bill of sale is not the actual owner.   Everything I’m reading about the application process requires actually knowing the owners actually name and information and requiring his signature. I have now idea who the real owner is and on top of that the seller is appearing to be mia...   Is there anything I can do or am I just SOL and learned my lesson the hard way?
