  • Amazing experience with Captain John and Roy. First time fishing for me and my family. I was a little afraid our 2 teenagers (13 and 17) would find the 5 hour trip a little long but not at all. They have enjoyed every bit of it! We fished plenty of delicious lake trouts. We had a fish fry once back at home and trouts were mild but flavorful. The weather was gorgeous but I am sure that Captain John and Roy will offer you a trip-to-remember whatever the weather. Don’t miss out on this experience!

  • Had a great time on a ladies charter with captain John and his crew. They were all very knowledgeable and helpful to us. We all took home some large salmon and were able to enjoy a beautiful sunrise and calm day on Lake Michigan.

    Capt John and 1 mate Roy were great. They eere professional and very accommodating. They answered all of our stupid questions and provided some comic relief. And yes he put us on fish. A lot of fish. I have enough salmon and lake trout to last me into the winter. I HIGHLY recommend Capt John and Michigan Sport Fishing Co. I will definitely be booking a trip next year. Thanks John

    Choose these guys if you want to catch fish on lake Michigan. It was literally less than 1 minute since our first line was in and we had our first 15 pounder. Captain John and Roy knew their stuff and had been doing this for over 20 years in the area. I went with 4 guys and we all hit our limit. All the other charter boats were following him. I highly recommend for adults or families. Thanks for a good trip guys.
