Shore Fishing for Salmon Update : Lake Trout

These strong west wind's we've had over the last couple of weeks have chilled the water to frigid levels. Temperature readings as low as 48 degrees on the surface have been reported. This means a variety of fish are reachable from the ends of piers all along the coast of Lake Michigan.

This Lake Trout were caught recently in Wisconsin from a pier. This same angler Mike P. and an accomplice both limited with 2 lake trout a piece last night from another Wisconsin Pier. Lake trout are exceptionally rare to catch from shore as they are usually found in very cold, deep water and like to stick to the bottom.

Mike keeps an up to date blog containing his salmon seeking adventures. You should head on over and check it out here.
