With over 20 years of Lake Michigan fishing experience, Captain Les Wood will make this a fishing trip you will remember. Here are a few seasonal pointers that will help you choose which time of the year is the best time for you to charter the boat.
In April, May, and June, greater numbers of fish are caught for 2 reasons. The first being that we are fishing closer to shore which means less travel time and more fishing time. The second reason is that we are fishing with more rods in the water because we are targeting the water closer to the surface rather than deeper water during the later months. You can also expect to catch mostly Coho Salmon or Perch, which to me, these fish are the best eating that Lake Michigan has to offer, but there are King Salmon, Brown Trout, and Rainbow Trout (also known as Steelhead) that can be caught too.
In July, August, and September on Lake Michigan, the TMA Charter boat will bring the bigger King Salmon also known as Chinook salmon and the feisty Rainbow trout (Steelhead). These salmon and trout are the real fighters and bring lots of excitement to the true charter boat angler. A good sized brown trout can also be taken in these months. (perch fishing is closed in July)
In October we are fishing mostly for Lake Trout. Lake Trout, of all the Lake Michigan sport fish that charter boats troll for, are the only fish natural to Lake Michigan. These Lake Trout are always of good size and mostly found on the reefs.
So come fish with us on our 35' Chris Craft Corinthian, D-BAIT-OR II, fishing for King Salmon, Coho Salmon, Lake Trout, Brown Trout, and Steelhead (Rainbow trout) and enjoy an experience of a lifetime on beautiful Lake Michigan located in Waukegan, IL.! All ages are welcome...experience is not needed as we are fully prepared to assist you if needed.
