Great Lakes Trout Fishing
While many people are out on the ice during winter in Wisconsin, some of the best cold water fishing is happening on Lake Michigan. Winter days on the Milwaukee Harbor are often the best times of the year to catch trout. As long as the ice conditions are low enough to get a boat on the water, we guide from December through February.
We will use a mix of casting, jigging and trolling to catch some of the best fish the Great Lakes have to offer. Boating 50 or more trout a day is not an uncommon occurrence on the waters of Lake Michigan during the winter. These winter trout trips are a great way to change things up during the cold months of a Wisconsin winter.
Epic Guide Service will provide all of the fishing poles, bait and tackle that is necessary during a day of fishing. Guide Capt. Jake Kaprelian uses a Ranger 620 boat with the latest electronics and equipment to help provide the best fishing experience possible. Jake is a licensed coast guard captain, and is fully trained in the latest first aid and CPR practices.
