What People Are Saying About Lake Trout Fishing in Michigan


Dana Hoekstra fished with Danel Sportfishing on September 9, 2019

This is our second year with Captain Dana. My son just loves celebrating his birthday on Lake Michigan catching big fish! Highly recommend The Danel. Captain Dana's first mate, Garrett, was a hard worker and friendly. Thanks for a great trip. We'll be back next year!

"AM Walleye Hunting"

Robert Harris fished with Windrift Sport Fishing on August 31, 2019

Enjoyed a Saturday morning fishing trip with my two boys on Lake Huron. It didn’t take long for Capt. Doug to find the find. Even though it is late in the season, we were able to catch plenty of Walleye. Capt. Doug and 1st Mate Pat were helpful and very engaging. Great day was had by on onboard. Can’t wait to sail with them again next summer.

"Morning Half Day on Lake Michigan"

Scott Perkins fished with Powderhorn Sportfishing on August 16, 2019

Our bachelor party of 4 had a great time! On a slow day on the Lake, Tim and Gabe got us on some big Lakers. Professional, kind, and knowledgeable. Tim clearly demonstrated experience as we made adjustments to find fish while other boats were coming in empty handed. I recommend Powderhorn to anyone fishing Lake Michigan!

"Half Day on Salmon Slayer"

Choppy start on beautiful day. Steel Head followed by Coho then Lake Trout. With calmer seas and evening came 4 King Salmon hits of which we landed 2, 20+ pounders! Wife is still doing her happy King Salmon dance ?
