Big Fish

Michigan Walleye Season

The early walleye season in Saginaw Bay starts May 1st out of Bay City. This is prime time to catch some of the bigger fish that are dropping back into the bay from their spring spawning runs. June & July provide exceptional walleye action as well, the weather is warm and fishing is hot! Limit catches of these scrappy gamefish are the rule rather than the exception. White bass, big perch, catfish, freshwater drum, and northern pike are frequently a part of the days catch, often providing non-stop action.

The Saginaw Bay

Saginaw Bay has the unique characteristics of a relatively shallow basin full of bait, but in close proximity to the cold deep waters of Lake Huron. Influx of cold water mixing with warmer shallow bay waters create the perfect habitat for feeding walleyes. The combination provides the most fertile walleye fishing grounds in the world!

Michigan Salmon Season

There is generally a mid-May/early-June run on Kings where there is a lot of action. The pace picks back up later in July and August. Although we are targeting big Kings, Coho and Steelhead, not to mention a few Lake Trout, you never know what the mixed bag will be. Salmon is an early morning and sunset/evening bite. 

Lake Michigan

Ludington is home to more Salmon charter boats than any other Michigan port. Why? The salmon fishing is top notch! Generally, fish are within a 5-10 mile range of the port and it is a short trip before we are setting rods. The breaks and shelves have fish feeding in closer early in the morning and they tend to go deeper during the day. With the changes in weather and currents, any given day may bring in more baitfish (& more Kings!).  This is the “big game” fishery for the State of Michigan, be ready for a good fight!

Sometimes once just
isn't enough!
