Salmon Fishing

About the Destination

Salmon are the best fighting fish in our beautiful Great Lakes. Salmon can make long powerful runs where you are sure your arms are going to fall off. Lake Michigan sunsets are beautiful, especially while battling a 25 pound king salmon. Steelhead, lakers, and coho salmon are very likely to be caught during this charter as well.
