Tiny Bubbles Charters - Lake Michigan Sport Fishing

Lake Michigan

Our Fishing Adventures

May is one of our most diverse fishing months. There are several fishing scenarios that can present from shallow (less than 10 ft. of water) Brown Trout fishing to pulling on large Lake Trout in 100+ feet of water. Stumbling on the wiley early season Salmon is never out of the question this time of year either!

June presents one of Capt. Dave’s favorite fishing opportunities, Offshore Steelhead Adventures. Cruising up to 20 miles offshore in up to 800 ft. of water to pull on feisty steelhead near the surface presents a rare opportunity to see these acrobatic fish in action! June also presents some of the best Lake Trout action we see all year. It is not rare to catch limits of these great eating fish during this month. A few years of consistent,┬áNICE catches is earning mid to late June a good reputation for Kings as well.

July is not only a month of GREAT weather, but also great fishing. Because most people know that August is a good month to catch big Kings, July often gets overlooked even though the fishing is fantastic. In fact, statistically, more Master Angler Salmon are taken in July than in August. We encourage guests to not overlook this great fishing month. The fresh salmon are here from Southern Lake Michigan, the Lake Trout are still fired up, and the offshore steelhead trips are still an option.

August is a very exciting month because of the relative location of the adult salmon. They are staging within several miles of the Frankfort Harbor along any of our many great underwater structures, in preparation for their run up the Betsie River. Early morning action can be second to none along with the “witching hour” just before sunset.

Early September offers action very similar to late August. The adult kings are still present and feeding and the action is great. Later in September we still see amazing fishing as we revert back to the younger salmon and the steelhead return. Again, a month not to be overlooked.

Lake Michigan Sport Fishing Captain
Captain of the Tiny Bubbles III is Dave Rommell — a 3rd generation captain. Having been deckhand on the Bubbles since the age of 11, Dave purchased the boat from his father, Capt. Robert, in 2002 after completion of his captains license course through the U.S. Coast Guard. Though Capt. Robert has handed over the business aspect, you will often find him working the deck or manning the wheel along with Capt. Dave throughout the summer.
