I have taken an annual salmon trip to Door County on Lake Michigan for the last 5 years and this year was truely awesome.

We fished the 24th and 25th of July, we used Kinn's Katch charter company out of Algoma.

Sunday morning we boated out at 4:15 am in 4 foot swells. Once the lines where set, things went nuts. We had several triples and two quads. We knew we where close to our limit of 25 fish for the day when we could not fit anymore fish in the 120 quart cooler. After a quick count we discoverd we where 3 fish from the limit. Three of our crew voted to call it a day because they heavey seas had several people using their stomach contents as chum. I was against going in but in the time we where pulling our lines we hit 3 more fish for the full limit! We were back at the marina by 7:00 am.

Monday greated us with much more hospitable seas, we only had 4 troopers left, one of the group decided that salmon fishing was not her gig. Regardless we caught 19 nice kings and 1 laker. We were back at the marina by 8:00 am.

I highly recommend this experience for anyone who loves to fish. I aspire to someday have a boat to fish, but till then I will always use the great guides out Kinn's Katch.

sounds like a lot of fun.. and the closest to 'sea fishing' that many of us may ever have a chance to try... someday when I have $$ again I wanna go out on one of the Lake Superior charters... I'm not one to do much keeping of fish .. my stomach doesn't have the ability to let me CLEAN fish myself.

Hey Quinndog,

A buddy just got back from Lake Michigan and had pretty much the same experience as you. I would like to get out there some day. I never fished that lake. Lake Superior - I have salmon fished though.

Since we are on the subject, anyone ever salmon fish the rivers with a fly rod? Now that is FUN!

I've never fly-fished anything.. but I was told that once the salmon hit the rivers ya don't wanna eat em cause they don't taste like they do out in the big water.. from what I see on 'Familiar Waters' Monday nights on outdoor channel... fly fishing takes a ton more patience than I have sometimes smile smiley
