Milwaukee Wisconsin, Lake Trout Fishing

Lake trout season opens March 1st and there are very few places in the world where you can find the numbers of fish we have in the Milwaukee Wisconsin harbor. Unlike some areas where trolling is the preferred method of fishing, we catch all of our lake trout jigging with spinning rods and soft plastics which makes the fight that much more fun. The lake trout bite generally lasts through early April, but can go longer if we have a cooler spring. These fish are terrible to eat, so I have a strict catch and release policy on all lake trout we catch. It is not uncommon to get a 12-15lb class lake trout on every trip and 20lb class fish are caught every week. Jigging for lake trout on light tackle can be the most fun you have ever had with a rod and reel!

Unlike most charter services on lake Michigan where your trolling, I specifically target big lake trout with 7'-9' Medium action Spinning gear and 1/8th-1oz jigs and soft plastics. This is a very unique and exciting way to fish for Lake Trout because you get to feel every hit and fight each fish with a spinning rod. There isn't any trolling gear to worry about getting your line caught up in and unlike when your trolling, you don't have to fight the fish against a moving boat. This is the most fun you can have with a rod and reel!! On a good day its not uncommon to catch 30-70 lake trout during a 5 hour jig charter trip!

There is a very particular pattern for getting the Milwaukee harbor lake trout to eat and I will teach you everything you need to know, so you are able to come back and catch fish on your own. This type of fishing will make you a better all around jig fisherman no matter what species of fish you are pursuing!
