MONTH BY MONTH SUMMARY OF THE
FISHING OFF WAUKEGAN
APRIL through JUNE:
Coho-Mania is in full swing with the arrival of warmer weather. Fast action begins this time of year with many limits of Coho, Rainbows and Lake trout. Fishermen planning a trip this time of year can definitely expect to experience some of best fishing for trophy Rainbows and large Lake trout. Many large Coho Salmon are also caught during this spring warm-up.
JULY through AUGUST:
By now summer is in full swing. Not only do we have beautiful weather on the lake, but also we are still continuing to have excellent catches for this time of year. During these summer months the lake produces a variety of catches, coolers bulging with King Salmon, Coho, Brown trout, Steelhead and Lake Trout with many of the catches averaging over 20 fish per trip.
SEPTEMBER through NOVEMBER:
As the summer heat is slowly fading away and the cool temperatures of fall begin to settle in, this begins some of the most memorable fishing trips you may ever have. This time of year brings beautiful mature kings closer to the shore. Many trips have returned with stories of busted tackle, bent hooks, and tales of the one that got away. With trophy Kings ranging between 20 to 35 pounds they will definitely allow you to experience what King fishing in Lake Michigan is all about.
I hope this summary will be of some assistance to you in selecting your charter(s), to make it a more exciting and memorable day.
