Docked in the Port of St. Joseph, Michigan, We are your ticket to a successful day of game fishing on the big Lake Michigan. After a lifetime of fishing for all types of lunkers Captain Mel LaFrance began his Charter Fishing Service on Lake Michigan in 1982. With over 356 years of running charters on My Mistress and Sport fishing for game fish in the Big Lakes of Michigan we have the experience to make your charter a success. Whether you’re a seasoned angler, casual fisherman or a newcomer to the sport We are your choice for a fun and satisfying day of big lake fishing for Salmon, Lake Trout, Brown Trout, Steel head and Coho Salmon and Lake Trout. With a no fish, no fee policy you can relax and concentrate on throwing in the line and hauling in the big ones. Call or email us today to schedule a charter. Lake Michigan Salmon fishing charters on a properly configured fishing boat, begin by leaving the dock at around 6:00 am, fishing until 1:00 PM for morning trips and beginning at 2:00 PM to 7:00 PM for the afternoon charters. We troll the lake looking for suspended fish with artificial baits and wait for the strike to start the action. Fishing and landing the Lake Michigan Chinook Salmon can be as exciting as it gets for a sport fisherman. These fish run tackle off at 45 MPH. Many times we have more than 1 fish on at a time which makes for very fun trips for everyone aboard. Our captain knows the area and knows how to bring in the big hauls. Afterwards we will clean and bag your fish and there are also Restaurants that will cook your catch while in town. Few things are as delicious as fresh caught Lake Michigan Salmon.
