Proven Charter Fishing for Salmon & Trout in Lake Michigan

Salmon and trout are some of the most delicious fish in Lake Michigan. They’re also some of the most exciting fish to catch! These fish put up quite a bit of fight, which makes them fun and rewarding to reel in. Additionally, salmon and trout grow to be quite large. The average salmon and trout in Lake Michigan weigh about 10 pounds. And king salmon average about 20-30 pounds, while some trout can grow as big as 50 pounds

We use two beautiful and professionally maintained marinas, which means you can leave from McKinley Marina in Milwaukee, Wisconsin or Pugh Marina in Racine, Wisconsin.
