We're at Mackinac Island right now, family charter this evening for Lake Teout and King Salmon. Tomorrow I'm going out all day without the girls.

Jennie has done it, but I never have. No idea what to expect. What's a good sized Lake Trout and King Salmon? Any other tips?

Im from Charlevoix, been fishing my whole life up there for Kings and Greasers (lake trout). A big Great Lakes Salmon is anything over 25lbs. They occasionally go 35lbs+. Lake Trout go 10lbs+

You can expect to be trolling deep for Lakers using downriggers. You may pick up a whitefish that way too. Lead core or dipsy divers and planer boards for Kings. Dodgers/flashers and spoons are pretty common. Some guys use meat rigs or flys too. Don't be surprised to pick up a steelhead or two out there too!

Enjoy your trip to Northern Michigan! My favorite place on earth!

4 hours this evening for Lake Trout and King Salmon. Only a single nice Lake Trout, worth every minute though. What a pretty fish. Tomorrow Walleye with possible Northern and Smallmouth.

Hit the pink pony up for sure, also if you have a rod with you fish the rock breakers on the south east point of the island behind the hotdog stand smallmouth and rockbass pile up there...your probably not into flyfishing for carp but just in case around the corner from mission point resort just past the "cliff" carp move in on those flats. Nothing like the smell of horse poop and fudge thumb

Ha. Coming back into dock the sonar was loaded with suspended fish 50 yards offshore, I bet carp.
