JULY through AUGUST:

By now summer is in full swing. Not only do we have beautiful weather on the lake, but also we are still continuing to have excellent catches for this time of year.

During these summer months the lake produces a variety of catches, coolers bulging with King Salmon, large Coho, Steelhead and Lake Trout with many of the catches averaging over 20 fish per trip. If this is the fishing you're looking for, click Reservations to book your Chicago fishing charter!


As the summer heat is slowly fading away and the cool temperatures of fall begin to settle in, this begins some of the most memorable fishing trips you may ever have. This time of year brings beautiful large and indigenous Lake Trout returning to their spawning grounds.

Many trips have returned with stories of busted tackle, bent hooks, and tales of the one that got away. With trophy Kings ranging between 20 to 35 pounds retuning to spawn; they will definitely allow you to experience what King fishing in Lake Michigan is all about at times too.
