Join us in early spring to catch beautiful German Brown Trout. We troll around the shoals and reefs of Baileys Harbor as the water starts to warm. You will see some beautiful fish and scenery as we troll the shoreline of Door County. A few Lake Trout and Rainbow Trout can be found during the end of this month.
As the waters of Lake Michigan continue to warm up, the Skamania Rainbow Trout (Steel Head) follow the temperature breaks off shore. They tend to school up in these breaks and feed off bugs and small baitfish on the surface of the water. We use planer boards and surface lines to hunt these fish. The rainbows put on a magnificent display of aerial acrobatics as you hook up with multiple fish at a time. The Chinook Salmon also start to show up in early June and school around the thermalclines as well. There are some pods of nice size Lake Trout running with these Rainbows and Kings.
Towards the end of June the Chinook Salmon can be found lurking in the deep waters outside of Baileys Harbor. We use downriggers, dipsy divers, lead core, Copper line and wire line to get down to the Salmon target range. Known as the best fighters, we are sure you will enjoy hooking up with one of these beauties. Rainbow Trout, Lake Trout and Brown Trout are mixed in with the Salmon.
These months consist of great Salmon and Trout action.
This is the last month of operations and we aim to catch Salmon, Steel Head and Brown Trout.
