Hope everyone had a great holiday season. Now it's time to back to thinking about fishing. All the "Learn Lake Michigan' seminar info and sign up is at http://www.captainsteiger.com/pages/lak ... minars.php

I am expecting this year to be the best ever. It will be at the Hammond, IN Cabela's location on Feb 17th and 18th from 10 AM till 2 PM. Few changes this year: 2 days - one day salmon/trout and one day smallmouth bass, both morning seminars, also limited food but food is available at Cabela's, the hall space is much smaller than where we hosted this previously, sign up at the door might not be available if the space is already filled. I have been working on a power point to go along with the talking this should help us stay on track.

The salmon/trout portion will be on Feb. 18th from 10 AM till 2 PM. I will post again soon with a detailed game plan on what we plan on covering.

Capt. John Warren of King Seeker Charters will be helping again with the salmon/trout section. John did a great job last year and I am looking forward to hearing more from him this year. He had an outstanding season here on the south end.

Sign up has been really good so far and I am expecting a full house. Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks Ralph

The first section of the salmon/trout portion of the 2018 Learn Lake Michigan Seminars held on Feb 18th at the Hammond, IN Cabela's location will cover jigging for ice out lake trout in shallow water. Capt. Ralph Steiger will cover bait choice, locations, depths, boat control, and everything else you need to know to be successful. Also Google Earth 3D images will be incorporated into the seminar for a more life-like example of how to fish these giant trout. Hope you guys can make it. Space is limited due to hall space.

In the salmon and trout portions of the seminars we will cover detailed explanations of when, why, and how to run different trolling spreads for different times of the year. Also a good portion of the seminars will talk about how to target specific species throughout the year. Our goal is to make sure everyone leaves the seminars feeling like they will have more confidence when they're on the water. This is an easy and inexpensive way to learn how to be more successful on the Great Lakes. Hope everyone can make it please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

Some of the trolling spreads we will cover:

• Spring Coho
• Spring Brown Trout
• Late Spring Coho
• Early Summer Lake Trout
• Early Summer Coho
Summer King Salmon
• Summer Mixed Bag – 60 to 80 ft of water
• Summer Mixed Bag – 80-100 ft of water
• Summer Mixed Bag – 100-150 ft of water
• Summer Mixed Bag- 150 +
• Inshore Steelhead
• Offshore Steelhead
• Inshore Fall King Salmon
• Inshore Fall Lake Trout

A big thanks to everyone who signed up this week for the Learn Lake Michigan seminars. If your tired of sitting in the house this winter and want to get out and talk fishing, learn some new tricks, and become a better fisherman in 2018 check out the seminars. Regardless if your new to big lake or a seasoned fisherman there will be something for everyone. I am just finishing up the power point presentation and it is loaded with info, pictures, Google Earth 3D images (going to be great for discussing locations and how to fish them), and diagrams of different trolling spreads for different times of the year. This will be the biggest and best seminar I have ever done. Both trolling and casting will be covered. I am looking forward to seeing every one.

Well done Ralph and crew! Very informative and entertaining. Had been wondering about alternative - cast / jig / alternatives to trolling for a few years. Know enough now to comfortably give it a try! Still plan a trip with you ASAP. Good luck on your charter tomorrow! Let us know how it goes.

Regards,
Rod
