Spring Salmon Charters From St. Joseph, Michigan

Lake Michigan | April 13th – May 17th, 2022

The springtime salmon fishing in St. Joseph, Michigan is second to none. As the waters begin to warm in the spring, baitfish flock to these waters, bringing the predator fish with them. During this time charter fishing is phenomenal from all of southern Lake Michigan, especially the port of St Joseph. The warm outflow from the St Joseph River and the Cook Power Plant draw large schools of fish from all around Lake Michigan. Large catches of Coho and King salmon are common, as well as great numbers of Lake Trout, Steelhead, & Brown Trout. But with the short season and low prices, dates don’t last long, don’t miss out on this amazing fishery!

Fishing Report – 2021 in Review

After the craziness of 2020, it was nice to kick the 2021 season off at our scheduled start time. We began our season patrolling the shallow waters for Coho Salmon, and for the most part we were rewarded with great catches. As the water began to warm, we transitioned more to the offshore waters and targeted a mixed bag of different species. Although we never experienced quite the banner King Salmon fishing that we had in the previous few seasons, we did manage nice catches on most days with mixed catches of Coho Salmon, Lake Trout with a few King Salmon and Steelhead thrown in also. This has become a very popular and busy time for us and dates are limited due to our short season, don’t wait too long to book your trip!
