of charter fishing Lake Michigan from Captain Mike Boyd of Coldwater Charters.


Fishing has slowed a bit. This time of year the thermal clines are setting up and the lake is in transition. As soon as the moon phase changes it should be good again

Remember $50 off morning and afternoon trips during the months of April and May

A couple dandy perch from our July 31st charter. August 3rd 08 King, just short of 20 pounds.

Captain Mike,

   "Thanks for such a great day on Lake Michigan. Your attitude and eye for details were the best. We have been out with several Captains over the years. One thing always comes to mind, getting yelled at when missing a fish or losing one. You never once raised your voice when we lost a fish or even when Kirk knocked that big King off with the net,  you just laughed and said, "you'll remember that for a while". Other Captains we have had would have went nuts but you stayed calm and got the bait back out never muttering a bad thing. Thanks for making every aspect of our trip great including our limit in Kings."
