In my guiding tenure multiple hookups have been common trolling Lake Michigan. Historically, however, hooking five salmon simultaneously occurred only once a year. Meanwhile, this season it has already happened more than a dozen times and our best days are still ahead of us.

After nearly a decade charter fishing this has been the best year, by far. Trolling has been hot since March and never slowed. And, while the fish aren’t huge (the biggest we’ve seen so far has been 25 pounds) I’m confident we’ll see some to 30 pounds this season.
