The great early spring fishery begins at Lexington when hungry Trout and Salmon roam the shallow waters of southern Lake Huron in search of baitfish. Delicious Lake Trout, Browns and Coho Salmon make up most of the catch. In the Port Austin / Grindstone City area, the fishing becomes nothing less than phenomenal in June and July when Whitefish, Walleye, Steelhead, and a few Chinook salmon add to the daily catch. For a real treat, have your fresh fish cooked for you at Captain Morgan's Bar and Grill.
August is salmon madness month on the Great Lakes, with Frankfort, Michigan being the shining star of the famous Lake Michigan salmon fishery. The fishing is simply unbelievable at times, with exciting action for adult Chinook and Coho Salmon.
Since fishing is so good, boat traffic is sometimes intense. Stormy Chinook routinely leaves the “pack” and fishes productive areas north of Frankfort that few boats ever visit.
Enjoy a truly unique Great Lakes fishing experience aboard Stormy Chinook at some rarely fished mid-lake shoals that Capt. Dan has experimented with and mastered. The tricky currents and steep drop-offs around Drummond Island, Michigan require experience to fish successfully, and Stormy Chinook has been fishing Drummond Island since 1985. When the offshore water is rough, the calmer near shore deep water around Drummond Island can be highly productive. Weather cancellations are rare.
The Stormy Chinook is a fully equipped 28 foot Albemarle Express, designed and outfitted with all the latest technology for offshore fishing. Albemarle boats have the highest possible standards for quality and safety. Built in Edenton, North Carolina, these boats have been tested and proven to withstand the waters of the Atlantic Ocean off Cape Hatteras, which is famous for high seas and treacherous navigation. The boat is fast, has a stand-up bathroom, and a heated enclosure for inclement weather.
