trip description for Weekend Salmon Run in Kenosha

Take a trip out with Captain Tim and experience the great freshwater fishing that Lake Michigan has to offer! Lake Michigan is the third-largest of the Great Lakes and the fifth-largest lake in the world, with just over 22,000 square miles of surface area. It's loaded with fish, including fantastic sportfish species such as Steelhead, King Salmon (also known as Chinooks), Coho Salmon, and Lake Trout—all of which you can target on this trip with Captain Tim. On this trip, you'll primarily be trolling lines to attract big Salmon and Steelhead, which love to take fast-moving baits and lures. When these powerful fish hit the hook, you'll feel it! Salmon are great fighters that will really test your strength, stamina, and skills—so bring your A-game! You'll also have the opportunity to drop your lines down to hook up some massive Lake Trout, which prefer the deeper, colder parts of the Lake. In addition to their fighting abilities, all of these species are terrific table fare! Whatever you're hoping to catch, Captain Tim is an expert when it comes to finding, hooking, and fighting fish in these waters. You'll be fishing from the deck of his 33' Trojan sportfisher. She's a beautiful boat with all the equipment necessary for a great day of fishing, including twin Crusader 350-HP engines and a cabin to keep you cool in the summer and warm in the fall. Your captain will bring everything you need for an ideal trip, including rods, reels, bait, and tackle. Tim will also clean and package all your keepers at the end of the trip. All you need to bring is a Wisconsin fishing license with the appropriate stamps, a cooler with snacks and drinks, proper clothing, sunscreen, and a smile! Get out there and enjoy the clear, cool waters of Lake Michigan with Captain Tim! Read More

If you're looking for a new "wallhanger" trophy fish, there's no better trip than this one with Bailey. He's made a name for himself by mastering all the local rivers flowing into Lake Michigan catching massive fish on both spinning gear and fly. Just look at his photo gallery to see how he consistently puts his clients on the giants, season after season. Starting in September, Chinook and Coho salmon enter the rivers in Eastern Wisconsin to begin their spawning stage. This is a great time to both cast hardware (crankbaits, spinners, etc.) and also float fish using bobbers and eggs for bait for these aggressive fighting fish! After a few good rains in fall, the Brown trout and Steelhead will move into the river systems to both spawn and take advantage of the egg buffet from the spawning salmon. During this time you can expect a lot of bobber fishing using both beads (single egg) and egg sacs for bait, as well as casting spinners/spoons. During your fishing adventure, you will be floating down the rivers in a 14' SmithFly BigShoals Raft. This will make it much easier for you to access parts of the river and fish, all while staying dry and warm inside the raft! All the rods, reels, gear and tackle will be provided for you, along with you fishing licenses! The only thing you have to do is show up and fish! Read More

trip description for Lake Michigan Adventure in Algoma

On this big-time trip out of Algoma, WI, you'll be exploring the amazing waters of Lake Michigan on a 33' 30 Open, equipped with all the latest equipment and gear that will quickly and safely get you on the fish. You'll be targeting the premier Lake Michigan species: Lake Trout, Steelhead, and King and Coho Salmon. These species are all members of the Salmonid family, and are voracious predators of small baitfish. In order to "get bit" you'll be running trolling gear with baits and lures, both of which are great at drawing in hungry Salmon and Trout. Without any predators in these waters, these fish can get huge, even breaking the 30-pound mark (the record is over 40 pounds!). When a monster takes your hook, strap in for a battle—these fish are known for their ferocious fighting abilities, which can feature big runs and even water-clearing jumps. Any catches you would like to take home can be cleaned and filleted by the Captain when you get back on the dock! Everything you need will be waiting for you, including all the rods, reels, tackle, and bait. Just bring proper clothing, some sunglasses and sunscreen, and your fishing licenses! Read More

If you've been looking for some truly epic sportfishing on Lake Michigan, then this trip has your name on it! For some reason, many people don't know about the fantastic fishing that the Great Lakes have to offer—leaving more big fish for you. Captain Shane has decades of experience fishing out of Kenosha, WI, and will definitely put you on the fish and make sure you have a blast. On this trip, you'll be chasing big King Salmon, Cohos, and Lake Trout on trolling gear. These fish love to whack fast-moving baits and lures, and you can expect wild fights once a trophy fish is on the line. Captain Shane is full of expert advice and tips to improve your fishing, so you'll leave this trip a better angler than when you went out. He's also happy to clean and bag your keepers once you return to the dock, so you can take home a cooler's worth of excellent table fare. Salmon and Trout are delicious eating fish, whether you opt to toss them on the grill, sear them on the stovetop, or even try them fresh as sushi. Ask Captain Shane for his favorite recipes! You'll be fishing aboard his 33' Tiara sportfisher, a beautiful and comfortable boat that's ideal for fishing the lake. She sports twin Crusader engines with a total of 700 horsepower, and is kitted out with electronics and gear to maximize your fishing. She also features a full cabin in case of inclement weather, or just to keep you out of the sun. This vessel is truly a fishing machine, and has everything you need for an awesome trip. Captain Shane will supply all the necessary gear, including rods, reels, bait, and tackle. The only things you need to bring are some sunscreen, weather-appropriate clothing, and a pair of sunglasses to cut the glare. Captain Shane is here to catch fish, and sometimes that requires going further off shore. If you opt to go out further, there may be an additional fuel surcharge. Read More

    Great trip. Cory is very knowledgeable and enjoyed our time on the water with him. I brought my 14-year old son along and Cory went above and beyond to ensure he enjoyed his time. Highly recommend and we will fish with Cory again in the future.

  • ★★★★★
    Absolutely fantastic trip with Shane. He explained everything we needed to know and set expectations before the trip and was easy to find when we got there. Super knowledgable, patient, and fun, his boat was clean and he was extremely efficient. Learned a lot, got on some major trout and salmon action, and had a blast. Looking forward to the next time we can get out there with him!
