2016 Fishing Season Underway

IMG_2547The 2016 fishing season currently underway. Limit catches of Coho Salmon, Brown Trout, and Lake Trout are the norm right now. Soon we’ll be placing more emphasis on targeting the fillet mignon of salmon (coho). Our calendar is getting pretty full. We encourage you to contact us now and get a date penciled in. It’s easier to fill the group after the date is established than to gain a group consensus on a date.

Charter Availability / Advance Booking

Our season will be ending October 18, 2015 and we currently have only a few weekend openings available. Weekdays are easier to book last minute. It’s not too early to book a 2016 Spring charter. We book April, May and June charters months in advance. This is especially true of the weekend dates. If you’d like a premium weekend date during the spring coho salmon run call now.

Late Summer / Fall Fishing

We are currently following large schools of lake trout and having an absolute blast catching these large fish. Additionally, we are catching Coho, Steelhead, and an occasional King Salmon out of Waukegan Harbor. We expect the fall to continue to produce good numbers of Lake Trout, The Kings should begin staging for their spawn and brown trout fishing will again be at a peak come October.

June Salmon & Trout

We completed May with nearly 1000 fish boated. June is looking good with steady catches of coho and steelhead. In addition, we are seeing good numbers of chinook salmon being caught and an occasional lake trout too. Limit catches are not the norm after May, but consistent catches of 12-20 fish should be achievable. We are currently fishing between 5 to 14 miles off shore and targeting multiple species in all levels of the water column.
