Lake Michigan Charter Fishing - April

April Charter Fishing Haul in MilwaukeeAlthough April weather may be chilly the fishing can be hot. Silver King charter fishing trips on Lake Michigan let you enjoy spring weather as you fish. On the Silver King, all equipment is provided. You just worry about making that legendary catch. We are usually fishing in 10 to 40 feet of water, using spoons and stick baits to catch fish. Bundle up and get in on some early spring action.

What Fish Can I Catch in April on Lake Michigan?

We target Brown Trout primarily during this period since they are more active in Lake Michigan than other fish. We do catch some other species too like Lake trout and Coho salmon but the top fish is Brown trout. This is the best month to catch them. It is your best opportunity to catch a limit of Brown trout.

World Record Trout in Lake Michigan

We catch them from 2 pounds to 33 pounds like the one boated in 2015 and 2017. We fish in one of the best areas to target Brown trout on Lake Michigan: in and around the Milwaukee harbor. The expansive harbor gives us calmer seas and warmer water to land fish even on bad wind days.

The Milwaukee shoreline also has an ideal structure for Brown trout. And we have the Oak Creek power plant to motor to that has a warm water discharge. This attracts fish when the water is very cold. We simply have a world-class Brown trout fishery right in our backyard that once held the world record and will again. The potential of a 50 pound Brown trout exists here!
