It been a cold spring and start to summer on the Lake Michigan shore. A friend of mine took my boys and I out on the "big pond" for some Lake Michigan sport fishing. The day was a bit on the slow side and ended the morning with one Lake Trout in the box and two others lost.

Nice solid looking fish. Do they smoke like salmon??

Lake Trout IMO is hands down the best smoked fish. They are naturally greasy so they stay nice and moist when you cook them.

Unfortunately it was a slow year for me out on Lake Michigan. I outfitted my boat with a new kicker motor so that killed a far amount of my season rigging that up. I did get out a week or so ago and had a good night. My brother and I went 4 for 5 all King Salmon. Ill post pics once I get them off my phone.

I’m hoping to get out a few more time before the fall salmon run but I’m starting to switch gears and focus all my attention to the upcoming trapping season. This being my first year I would like to at least feel I'm prepared for it :o

One of the bigger kings we got that night. It was about 12 lbs.
