Go before Labor Day. Check local fishing reports like Tangled Tackle and others for local info. Stay at the Orchard Beach State Park - great facilities and it's just 5 minutes from downtown Manistee.

Manistee is a good place to base a fishing charter. The town offers everything you need but still has a "small town" atmosphere. The Manistee Hotel is a good place to overnight before a morning charter.

It was a bright sunny and exceptional flat water afternoon in May - we were told it’s a little early in the season and the flat water and bright sun makes catching tough.

Verify spawn conditions before going. If the spawn is over the fish leave the river. Can’t catch what’s not there.

We unfortunately came the day after they had really bad north wind storm. None the less we still caught Salmon and had a great time!

Get a knowledgeable guide or captain. If you're not sure about if you get sea sick take medicine before you go out. Dress appropriately. Lot's of sites to see

Lake fishing was great, did a river fishing trip, not much fish caught, but scenery was more than great. Would do again.

Contact Captain Lenny and be ready to be ready to crank away bringing in your own monsters of Lake Michigan. Worth every penny.

Patience and flexibility. If you don’t catch on the big lake, try a small one or river

If you’re looking specifically for Salmon in Lake Michigan, then I would recommend Manistee, MI.
