River Mouth Salmon Fishing Trips

Come and fish the river mouths in our 17’ Polarkraft Jet Sled for King Salmon. Experience the thrill of catching the hardest-fighting fish in the Great Lakes before they head up the river. We use casting plugs, jigging, and float-fishing techniques to target these staging fish.
