Outfitter #468

Lake Michigan Salmon Outfitter


One of the lower 48's best kept secrets:
Leave your passport at home and forget the 7 hour red eye from Alaska, because on this trip you will experience incredible salmon fishing located conveniently in the upper Mid-West. You will enjoy fishing from one of their 11 tournament rigged sport fishing yachts ranging from 32-38ft. An experienced captain and first mate will team-up with your crew to provide you a memorable and exciting trip!
The season, on the southern end of Lake Michigan runs (May 1st - June 1st). Here liberal limits and coolers full of Coho salmon (silvers) is the norm. Huge schools of these fantastic eating fish make their way around the southern shore every spring. If liberal limits and fast action are what you crave, this destination located 45 minutes north of Chicago is the way to go!  Once waters warm, our outfitters team head north, to Lake Michigan's premiere king salmon destination! Located at the base of Wisconsin's famed Door Peninsula, large kings and acrobatic steelhead dominate this fishery. June, July, August, and September are the months these fish are the most active, with great catches being had throughout this period.  All packages include double occupancy hotel rooms, tackle, fish cleaning and licenses. Condo upgrades are possible when available.
This is a great family trip, anglers and non-anglers will both enjoy this destination. Non-anglers can enjoy leisurely days on wonderful sandy beaches of Lake Michigan soaking up the sun while the rest of the party is fishing. *Meals are not included as a part of this package. There are a number of local restaurants you can choose from, they will even cook up your fresh catch.468
