Lake Michigan Multi-Species Seminars

After last year’s successful seminars, we are looking forward to the 2017 seminars.  This year will be bigger and even better than last year.  In addition to all the great fishing info you’ll gain, the seminars will be held in a bigger hall with catered food.  Like last year, there will be a cash bar and a free raffle of great prizes from our generous sponsors.

Capt. John Warren of King Seeker Charters will again be sharing his knowledge of trolling the Great Lakes during the Salmon/Trout seminar.  John was a great addition to the seminar last year and we are looking forward to having him back again.

Ryan Whitacre will be helping out with the smallmouth seminar.  Ryan is an excellent tournament fisherman and knows a great deal about bass fishing.  His knowledge of Illinois waters both from shore and boat make him one of the most knowledgeable fisherman on Lake Michigan.
