The Rodfather- Charter fishing on Lake Michigan

​Join Captain Jeff for the Experience of Salmon fishing in Michigan City. King Salmon, Coho Salmon, Steelhead, Lake and Brown Trout are the targets, and we aim to not only get numbers but size as well. I have found my clients love fishing as much as I do, and why not to fish for the big ones. There is nothing like Sportfishing in Lake Michigan  on a charter out of Michigan City, Indiana.

The Chinook salmon can average from 6 to 20 plus pounds with wall hangers approaching 30 lbs. these can be a real battle to land.
