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.

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'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

After the spawn concludes and the big Chinook, Coho, and Steelhead make their way back out to the lake, the Small Mouth fishing gets red hot! If you're looking to catch some studdly smallies and wild Inland Trout around Milwaukee and Sheboygan, there's no better guide than Bailey here to put you on them. He's made a name for himself by mastering all the local rivers flowing into Lake Michigan catching massive Salmon and Steelhead in the cold months and Small Mouth and more in the late spring and Summer. The Driftless Region of Wisconsin is a very unique, scenic area that offers a variety of species and types of water to target beyond Small Mouth as well. Although some public access, the vast majority of lands surrounding trout streams are privately owned. Here is where Bailey's 14' SmithFly Raft comes into play, allowing you to access miles & miles of untouched, pristine water. The Inland Trout fishing is mainly done using fly fishing gear with streamers and spin gear with hardbaits to target bigger, wild fish. Smallmouth Bass and Inland Trout offer a great experience to all levels of anglers. Expect sunny, warm days with great action and the chance at a Trophy Smallmouth as well! We target the Bass on both Fly and Spin setups, as well as Float Fishing for them sometimes using jigs. 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!

    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!
