Milwaukee Charter Fishing Adventures: Types of Fish
Lake Michigan offers the best freshwater fishing in the world. We fish for Chinook Salmon, Coho Salmon, Lake Trout, Rainbow Trout, and Brown Trout. Captain Kurt and Captain Willy are two of the most experienced captains in Milwaukee with a passion for fishing. They know exactly where to go depending on the season, weather, and the type of fish you are looking for!
Passengers are only allowed to catch so many trout and salmon. Each passenger may catch up to 5 fish of any combination of salmon or trout. Lake Trout is the only exception—passengers may only catch 2 total.
The greatest benefits of your day on Lake Michigan, of course, are the priceless memories from a day of family fun —and pounds and pounds of fresh salmon ready to bake or fry straight out of the lake. Does anything taste better?
