Captain Mike has been fishing on Lake Michigan since the late 1980s. He has been a licensed charter boat Captain since 1997 and is a full time charter Captain and hunting guide. We can accommodate large parties of over 6 passengers as we have access to several boats. Since 2009 the salmon limit has been increased to 5 fish per angler.

      We believe in always being courteous and polite to all of our clients. Fishing or hunting can vary from trip to trip but our 110% effort and getting as much as possible out of every trip is our goal. No prior fishing experience necessary. We are licensed for up to 6 passengers not including the crew.
