Samantha, one of Silver King Charters first mates is holding a 15 pound Lake trout caught in early August. This is a great time to catch Chinook salmon and Lake trout Milwaukee charter fishing. The fish are feeding heavy before spawning and is probably the best month to land bigger fish. This fish hit 100 feet down right on the bottom using a spin and glow. It took about 25 minutes to battle the fish to the net. Lake Michigan charter fishing has a lot of great times throughout the season but July and August are trophy months.
