Lake Michigan Charter Fishing - August

August is the month when Chinook salmon are at their largest and they are feeding heavy before spawning. Silver King Charters brings fishers out onto Lake Michigan to go after Chinook and other fish which are active during this month. If you’re a trophy fisher, this is your shot at getting a big salmon or trout.

Big Fish Make Great Trophies

Charter Fishing on Lake Michigan in AugustAugust is also a great time to catch big Lake trout as they get ready to spawn. We catch most of our 20 plus pound fish in the late July and August period. The catch rate is down from earlier in the year but this is your best opportunity to catch a trophy fish. If you want numbers, fish in May and June. July and August are the time for big trophies.

We are primarily targeting Chinook salmon, Lake trout, and Rainbow trout. The Silver King boat is usually in 50 to 150 feet unless there is a good Steelhead bite out in 200 to 300 feet. Flasher flies, spoons, and plugs are the top baits. We provide all the equipment you need for a successful trip.
