Anglers Alley

Fishing is one of the greatest Great Lakes traditions. Since the Coho Salmon fisheries took off in 1960’s, anglers have caught fish off the shores of Lake Michigan nearly all year long. However, the best fishing occurs in early spring and late summer into early fall. The southeastern portion of the lake is known for its abundant Coho population, making LaPorte County, Indiana, the “Coho Capital of the World.” Cast a line in one of our favorite fishing spots:

If fishing on land isn’t quite your style, contact a LaPorte County Charter Captain and cruise Lake Michigan.

Whether you sail on a humble pontoon or a luxurious yacht, the skipper will guide you to fruitful waters.
