Rainbow "Steelhead" Trout Charter Fishing on Lake Michigan
Rainbow trout are the acrobatic fish on Lake Michigan. Once they strike they are on the surface jumping as high as four feet out of the water. A fun fish to catch and great on the grill. We catch them throughout the season in many depths of water but the best place to target them is offshore during the summer.
When we say offshore we are starting 8 miles out in 200 plus feet of water. We troll our fastest speeds to catch these fish, going as fast as 3.5 miles an hour.
When you get into a school of these fish hook ups are plenty but because of the way they jump it is common to lose them. Don’t get frustrated we will get another one on. We use spoons to catch these Rainbow trout.
