Types of Lake Michigan Salmon & Trout Fishing
Charters and Rates
Below is an overview of length of charters and associated rates. All charters are available for either the morning or the afternoon. Rates are to charter your private group of up to six people (max by Coast Guard regulations), however you do not have to have six people and we also happily accommodate 2 & 3 person groups at a discount from Monday thru Thursday (see below). Multiple vessel packages can be arranged for groups larger than 6 people. Additionally, if we do not have availability on the day you need, we have partnered ourselves with other top captains and boats and will be happy to make these arrangements for you to fish.
Which salmon fishing charter is right for you?
5 Hour Fishing Charter: We recommend this charter for the Spring Coho Run in May.
6 Hour Fishing Charter: We recommend this charter for ALL OTHER charters from June thru October. As the season progresses, schools of fish will often be found in deeper waters and the extra hour is often instrumental in maximizing more time to reach these fish and fine tune our presentation techniques.
8 Hour Fishing Charter: This charter offers the most value and gives us the ultimate flexibility in pin-pointing our presentation techniques as well as experimenting with others in order to offer you the best chance of catching both more and larger fish.
