Kinn's Sport Fishing is locally owned and run by Captain Troy Mattson and Captain Bret Cook. Our company was founded in Algoma, Wisconsin in 1969 by the late Howard Kinn. The company was the first in the industry to begin offering Lake Michigan fishing packages in Algoma WI, Sturgeon Bay WI and Winthrop Harbor IL that included salmon fishing trips, lodging, and licenses.


The Finest in Spring Trout & Salmon Charter Fishing

701 North Point Dr, AB Dock, Winthrop Harbor, IL 60096

April 15-30

Starting in April as warming temperatures begin on Lake Michigan's western shores, Large numbers of Cohos and Steelhead begin on the hunt for schooling alewives. This is clearly the best time of year, if catching lots of salmon is up your alley! You will have to book early if "Catching Limits" of Coho and Steelhead are what you want. In addition to fun, these are the best eating fish of the season!

May 1-31

This is simply the best time and place for "Fun Fishing" as all species of Trout and Salmon are active and concentrated close to shore. We should experience nearly a 100% success ratio here on "Limit Catches" again. Book early as this will fill fast!

This is on of our most consistent fishing periods of the season. This is an excellent time for all types and sizes of Trout and Salmon.We see large King Salmon in addition to excellent mixed bag catches.

The Chinook Salmon have grown a little larger and by the end of August and are getting ready to enter the streams to spawn. We continue to experience excellent catches of Chinook Salmon and Brown Trout in addition to the ever popular Steelhead trout fishing.

September 1 - October 15

September normally offers the best chance for a very large Chinook Salmon as they are at their peak size. They are now available in shallow water. We also take some nice catches of Steelhead and Salmon late in September and into October.
