March 2016

Coho Salmon and Brown Trout 

This is some of the most action packed fishing Lake Michigan has to offer.  Casting for salmon and trout using light tackle is a blast.  This is a great trip for fisherpeople of all ages and skill levels.   Both morning and afternoon trips available.  

April and May 2016

Smallmouth Bass

Some of my favorite fishing of the year.  After a long winter the big smallmouths come back out to play!  All fishing is done casting using light tackle.  This is prime time to get both good numbers of fish and great quality.  All catch and release on bass.

Lake Michigan has changed the way I fish, almost spoiled me. Come experience the big lake through my eyes and see the way fishing should be.

I am a fulltime Captain with a 100 ton Masters license. This is my full-time job. It is as important to me as it is to you that you love your time on the water and catch fish.

I will never quit working to keep you on fish. I am not in business to waste your time or money. If fishing is slow I will tell you, and we can shoot for a better day. Most importantly safety will always come first. Your safety is more important than anything. My job is to keep you safe and on fish.
