About Us.

Meet The Captain

Captain John Milbourne

I Captain the vessel “Tuna Time”. I hold a 100 ton Masters License issued by the United States Coast Guard. My boat is inspected and licensed and has all the necessary equipment for you to enjoy your adventure on the Great Lakes.

I have well over 30 years fishing experience in some shape or form. I have fished walleyes in Minnesota, pike in Canada, sail-fish in Jamaica, sea trout and sail fish in Florida, yellowfin tuna off Oahu, halibut and salmon in Alaska, sharks in Maine, bluegills in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and the last 25 years have been devoted to Great Lakes trolling for salmon on Lake Michigan and walleyes on Lake Erie. I have been fishing ever since I can remember.


With all that said I love to fish and would love to help you catch the big one that didn’t get away.
