King Salmon Fishing Charter Traverse City
Chinook “King” Salmon
Traverse City can be a excellent place to try to catch a King Salmon on a fishing charter! The Chinook “King” Salmon is one of the most prized fish in the Great Lakes. With a short life span, of only four years, they have no time to waste. They grow at an incredible rate which means a lot of eating. There is no mistaking it when we hook one of these fish. They are a blast! They were planted into Lake Michigan in 1967 to help regulate the growing baitfish population. The state record King Salmon weighed in at just over 46 pounds. It’s common for a fourth-year king salmon to average 15-20 pounds.
We are starting to see some more King Salmon in Traverse City during all season. I believe that is due to our abundant baitfish population. The last few seasons we have been catching a few in the spring. Then once mid-July hits we will usually get a push of Salmon that will check out their home for the next few months, catch a few then it dries up. When we turn the calendars to August, it is usually game on. I would say peak King Salmon season in Traverse City is Mid-August-Mid-September. Charter Fishing King Salmon in Traverse City is a great place to try your hand, at the “king of the lake”!
Give us a call at Storm Hawk Sport Fishing, we would love to show you the thrill of these line peeling monsters!
