June, July, and August

Offshore Salmon/Trout Trolling

Great weather and giant fish make the summer months the time to go salmon fishing!   These hard fighting salmon and trout are a blast to catch plus very good to eat.  Fishing tends to be very good on a daily bases.  All fishing is done by trolling which makes for a relaxing way to spend the day with friends on the water.  This is a great way to get friends, families, and kids into fishing!


Smallmouth Bass

Late Summer/Fall

As summer starts to come to an end the smallmouth bass fishing gets better by the day.  Cooling water temperatures make these fish put the feed bag on before late Fall/Winter sets in.  Typically the weather is great in late summer thru mid fall and the a bass action is very good.  As later Fall approaches numbers of fish go down some but size goes up.  Regardless of when you go fishing is great thru this time period. 

November/December Lake Trout

As water temperatures drop the big lake trout move out of deep water and move into the shallower inshore waters to begin spawning.  This is some of the most action packed fishing of the entire year.  Giant fish, lots of action, and all on light gear in shallow water.  We focus on jigging for them using light spinning gear.  Trolling is also very productive and is available.  Dates for this fishing are extremally limited.
