Great Lakes Slam
Species: Lake and brown trout, chinook and coho salmon, steelhead
Where: Ludington, Michigan
Tackle: Orange spoons, black Bombers, alewives, herring strips
Why: There are few places in the country, or the world, where you'll have a better shot at so large a variety of species in a single summer day.
How: Glen Buehner of Raptor Charters, no stranger to slams, says water between 45 and 55 feet holds browns in the summer. Once you've got your brown, start multitasking. Buehner trolls high lines, between 8 and 10 feet of water, for steelhead and simultaneously trolls deeper for salmon, maintaining a speed of between 2.5 and 4 mph, slowing when he locates a bite. If lakers aren't suspended, the "mud chickens" will be right on the bottom in 100 feet or more of water.
