Title: Salmon Trolling Supplies
Post by: Joe in T.C. on May 06, 2021, 05:12 PM
During the soft water season, I like to troll for kings, coho, browns, steelhead, and lakers when the weather permits.

We Lost several of our tackle shops in the area so I went online looking.

Found Captain Chuck's ll in Ludington. It was a bit of a road trip but gave it a try.

WOW! I was blown away by the selection of trout and salmon trolling supplies, well worth the trip and I will be going back for sure.

I was like a kid in a candy store, there are literally thousands of spoons in stock, plus everything else you need for trolling (and other types of fishing).

They also have a great online store with accurate inventory shown. I did order a couple of divers online and they arrived correctly and quickly.

Just thought I would throw it out there if anyone was interested.

Good Luck all  :tipup:

Thanks Joe, Capt. Chucks is a great place for big lake tackle. Another place on the east side is Northwoods Wholesale Outfitters, in Pinconning. They have a huge tackle dept. that covers all types of fishing, but they really cater to the walleye guys. Found this place back in March, & was flabbergasted when I went there the 1st. time. Last week found me on that side of the state again,so I had to stop. Ended up replacing some of my Diver & planer board rods. They have some great deals on rod/reel combos & crazy prices on rods. Its about 10 minutes north of Frank's Great outdoors in Linwood. Another fantastic shop.Both stores have online purchasing also. If you get a day or 2 ,make a trip over that way. If you have a boat, Take it,you are like 5 minutes from Sag. Bay !

smeltbuster,

I will give Northwoods Wholesale Outfitters a try.
We take a road trip to Wilson's Cheese Shoppe in Pinconning at least once a year so we will be right in the area.
Thanks for the info

Good Luck all  :tipup:

if you going to pinconning you might as well check out Franks as well.  Northwoods was undercutting Franks for a few years, but Franks has now put their pricing at a competitive price point and has also increased their inventory.  Just my .02
