Port Austin Fishing Charter Catch

Example of a mixed bag catch on Lake Huron: Lake trout, Salmon, Walleye and Steelhead Good job ladies!



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 Morgans Bar and Grill.
