Lake Michigan

Havin' Fun

Recommended Posts

Well, it's getting ever so close to Spring, and it has me thinking about Salmon, Rainbows and the like. I will be fishing Lake Michigan for my first time(in my own boat) So I could use a good list of things to ADD to my boat. I pretty much have very little. I fished lake Superior, so I have some planner boards, flys, spoons ect. But what do I really need? A good list of flies, spoons, dodgers, DOWNRIGGERS(which size?) I have app 17ft lund tiller. Line, stackers, ect. Hopefully you get the idea. And if there is anyone in the G. Bay area who would be willing to take out a Vikings fan sometime this summer to show me the ropes.....please nominate yourselfs now!!!!

All help, suggestions and perhaps a little ribbing welcome!

Capt. Chip Porter puts out an excellent video on salmon fishing Lake Michigan. Spend the dough and get it. It's got everything you'll need to know.

I'll start a list.
Marine Radio
Flares and Flare gun
Mast for trolling boards
Trolling boards in addition to in-line boards
Rod holders, four or five on each side of the boat. make your own.
Down Riggers {look for my reply on the equipment forum)
10-12 lb pancake weight
Releases for the board lines and the down riggers
Flashers and Dodgers
Howie Flys are a must for Mi Chinooks
If I listed all the tackle our heads would spin
Good sonar with temp
Kicker motor 10-15 HP
Big hooped long handled net
Large cooler
8 Big Lake rods and reels
Assortment of chain bead 1-3 oz weights
