We normally fish Michigan City since it's closer, but going to St. Joseph is worth it if you want Salmon and Steelhead. The St Joseph river outlet really makes a difference on the fishing, plus we didn't have to run out for an hour to find the deep water like we do in MC and Portage harbors on the same lake. More time fishing. The town is quaint and the views are amazing

With any fishing trip weather plays a big role especially in April. If you can get out during March or April that would be best. Run a spread of lines from top to bottom to produce best results for multi species.

Bring a sun hat, shades, and plenty of water and snacks. If you get easily boat sick, get a scopolamine patch for motion sickness.

If you suffer from motion sickness get Dramamine in your system the night before. Have plenty of water with you it can get hot quick.

We caught more fish the last couple times we went out, but that's just how fishing goes sometimes. Over all we were very satisfied

Bring warm clothes for the morning and sunscreen for the early afternoon. Also, don’t forget to pack a snack.

Do some research on the charter that you are considering and check out the reviews of what others have experienced with the charter, captain, boat, and equipment.

If you’re looking for a big haul, go out early, but no matter what time you go you’ll have a great time on the water.

Give Capt. Kyle a try at Sliver Beach Fishing. He and his crew were great with me and my whole family.

You will catch more fish in the morning. Jarrod told us to come back and do a morning trip and we would catch more fish!

It's a crap shoot. Some days may be good, others not. Fish just weren't biting. They were there, just not hungry I guess.

The water temp had changed over night and got colder so the fish were not very attractive and the bit was slow .we plan to try again in September hoping for better luck
