The great early season fishery begins at Ice out, when hungry Trout and Salmon roam the shallow waters of southern Lake Huron in search of baitfish. Delicious Lake Trout, Coho Salmon, and Chinook make up most of the catch. In the Port Austin / Grindstone City area, the fishing continues to be nothing less than phenomenal in June and July when Whitefish, Walleye, Steelhead, Atlantics and a few Chinook Salmon add to the daily catch. The fishing remains awesome for Lake Trout, Steelhead and Walleye until fall. For a real treat, have your fresh fish cooked for you at Captain Morgan's Bar and Grill.
