Chinook Salmon Charters
In the Wisconsin waters of Lake Michigan, the chinook begins its life in the fish hatchery. The fast-growing chinook spend their life in the open lake, usually in water less than 100 feet deep, preying on alewife and smelt.
One of the best methods to catch these fish is by trolling with a plug or spoon, using a down rigger to get the lure down to where the fish are. It’s large size, tremendous fighting ability, and delicious flesh have lured fisherman from far and wide to catch the “king” of salmon.
