Frequently Asked Questions about Fishing Charters in Lake Huron

According to customer reviews, Get Hooked Fishing Charters, Danny Boy Fishing Charters, and Windrift Sport Fishing are some of the most popular fishing charters in Lake Huron. Full list of top fishing charters in Lake Huron.

The average price for a private 4 hour Lake Huron fishing trip is $500, while an 8 hour private trip will cost you $661 based on prices on FishingBooker.com.

Get Hooked Fishing Charters, Danny Boy Fishing Charters, and Windrift Sport Fishing all received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Lake Huron.

The most popular fish species you can target are Walleye, Yellow Perch, and Northern Pike. Top fishing techniques include Trolling, Light Tackle, and Jigging. Lake fishing, river fishing, and nearshore fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

If you’re looking for a new freshwater adventure, a trip on a Lake Huron fishing charter might be just what you need! This third-largest freshwater lake in the world is waiting to be explored, and its 30,000 islands are teeming with wildlife. A Great Lakes fishing adventure is something every angler should experience at least once, and what better place to start than in stunning Lake Huron?

Covering over 23,000 miles, Lake Huron is full of life, and the fish species you’ll find here are as varied as the lake’s waters. All the freshwater trophies are here, including Lake Trout, Salmon varieties, Bass, Northern Pike, Walleye, Yellow Perch, Whitefish, Musky, Steelhead, and many more. No matter what your skill level and experience is, you’ll find something to target here.

There’s a variety of trips you can go on in the area If you’re looking for a nice family outing, a half day trip is a great choice. However, going to the deeper offshore waters will take more time, so if this is what you want to do, make sure you book a full day trip.

Seeing as Lake Huron is very big, you can explore it from many different places, and you’ll find fishing guides ready to take you out all along the shoreline. Visit Saginaw Bay from Linwood or Bay City. Port Austin is another great starting point, and Mackinaw City sits right between Lake Michigan and Lake Huron, so you can get the best of both worlds!

Rules & Regulations

When it comes to fishing regulations, you’ll need to buy a fishing license for everyone age 17 and above. Some species have specific open seasons as well as strict rules and regulations. The best way to make sure you’re fishing within the law is to head out with a reputable guide.

January

January is all about ice fishing for delicious Walleye in Saginaw Bay. Jumbo Perch come in for a strong second place as a popular target to go after while the weather is chilly.

February

Atlantic Salmon and Steelhead bite around Lexington Harbor and Port Sanilac Harbor, even though the ice can be around 10’’ thick. Walleye is still good in Saginaw Bay, but the ice might be unstable.

March

Anglers who are itching for some Perch action can get good hookups on the northern edge of the lake, around Les Cheneaux Islands. The mouth of Saginaw Bay gets good Lake Trout action this time of year.

April

The waters around Cedarville offer action for anglers looking to reel in Splake and Perch. The Lexington Spring Fling fishing tournament is one of the most exciting annual tournaments for Salmon and Trout, heating up the chilly waters.

May

Areas with higher water temperatures can look forward to Smallmouth Bass and Catfish showing up. Atlantic Salmon can be targeted near the shore or off fishing piers.

June

Northern parts of Lake Huron offer great native Lake Trout action. Walleyes start biting like crazy in Saginaw Bay and Thunder Bay.

July

Lake Trout is biting hard under the hot summer sun. Good numbers of Pink Salmon and some Chinook Salmon can also be caught.

August

Steelheads can be found in waters 80-150’ deep off the coast of “The Thumb”, at the southern end of Lake Huron. Anglers can still reliably target Lake Trout around Thunder Bay.

September

The inner parts of Saginaw Bay are red-hot with Perch during September. The Walleye bite remains as good as in the previous months. If you’ve been holding out on fishing Lake Trout hurry up, the season ends on September 30th.

October

Lexington Harbor is the place to be if you’re a fan of reeling in Atlantic Salmon. With the Lake Trout season over, the fishing pressure is usually light this time of year.

November

Walleye and Perch are the stars of fall fishing on Lake Huron, with good bites happening around Saginaw Bay and Caseville. Atlantic Salmon stacks up at Lexington Harbor.

December

As the cold weather truly sets in, Walleye and Perch still stay strong even in December. If there’s no ice, trolling can land you good keepers.

Be sure to go at least once with a Charter Captain who is experienced in fishing the Detroit River so he knows the current and specific areas to go to find fish. Met others that day who had gone out on their own and caught nothing.

You can expect to catch bigger fish in April but the number of fish caught might be better in late or May. The weather conditions and water temperatures can make fishing in early April at times a bit difficult. We had to reschedule a trip as a result of bad weather.

If you have never been on Lake St. Clair, prepare for having a great time. Bring lots of sun screen a hat and some cold drinks. What you expect to happen can become a trip of a lifetime and the possibilities are always there to catch that dream fish! I grew up on Lake St. Clair and loved it and it is one the best places to fish in the world.

Took some friends out who have never been fishing before. Captain Mike and crew showed us a great time and were very professional. Only ended up catching 1 Muskie for a half day trip but that’s why they call it “fishing” and not “catching”. Great experience and will charter through Huskie Muskie again to take my niece and nephew out on a trip. Highly recommended
