From Mid August to about Beginning of September we Jig and Cast for the Coho Salmon in Platte Bay which is exciting as you feel the “Whack” vs trolling and all you do is fight the boat as it trolls along. Once the fish push up the Platte River we switch to the river and fish for them there.
When River fishing If you have waders please bring them as sometimes we can get out of the boat and fish if you so choose and the Platte River is very shallow which may require us getting out of the boat for a bit also.
We also fish for King Salmon in Betsie Bay in Frankfort when they stack up in there. We Jig, cast, and use slip bobbers with skein for the mighty King Salmon that come into Betsie Bay.
The month of August and September are an exciting time to be in Northwestern Michigan salmon fishing as there is just so many options to choose from. Depending on the weather conditions, wind, and where the most fish are your guide Captain Brian Seiferlein will do everything that he can to put you in the right place at the right time.
