  • Great day on the water with Captain John and First Mate Roy. My wife, brother, and future sister in law had a great time. Lots of fish. Beautiful day. Great conversation. Very nice to fish with down-to-earth people. Will be go fishing with these guys again. 1st time on a Lake Michigan Charter Boat. These guys made it a great memory.

  • 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!

    Boat was running and ready when we got there @5am. Captain and crew were ready for us and ready to catch some fish. Captain knew exactly where to go and we really got into the Lakers. Great experience for my 7y/o son as well as my 70 y/o father in law who were both on their first charter. Everyone was nice and shared fishing stories as well as recipes for later when we got home. Highly recommend and will be using them again the next time we get up there!
