Lake Michigan Salmon & Trout Charters

Hook a salmon on a Lake Michigan charter and you'll never forget the feeling!

Trips aboard Net Dreams are all about the relentless pursuit of the NEXT Big One!


The Port of Manistee, Michigan is well known for being an amazing King Salmon fishery.

Manistee is a fishing town and also well known for Lake Trout, Steelhead and Coho. Not only is Manistee home to some of the biggest fish on Lake Michigan, it's also known for it's variety of terrain features – the shelf, drop off, off shore or in front of the pier heads, Big Sable Point, Onekema, and Arcadia. There are countless great fishing spots!


In July we target Lake Trout but we still have rods out to catch Kings, Steelhead, and Coho. As July continues we will start transitioning toward a more King Salmon oriented program. Once August rolls around we're reeling in Kings and Coho Salmon. Our biggest King to date is 35lbs and we've caught a handful over 30lbs each year for the last few seasons. Yes, we start early for the morning trips and fish late for afternoon trips but the sunrises and sunsets while fighting fish in between will be an experience you'll be hard pressed to forget.
