Bending Limits Sportfishing

Macatawa MI, United States

Bending Limits Sport Fishing is an enthusiastic charter service that operates out of Holland, Michigan. Located just a short ride from some of Lake Michigan’s fishing grounds, this is an operation that prides itself on putting fish in the boat. So much so, they offer a “NO FISH NO PAY” guarantee on every trip they run. Want to be assured that they money you spend on a fishing charter will result in a hookup? You’ve come to the right place.

Your trip will be spent aboard the “Daybreak”, a comfortable and stable 29 ft Tiara Yachts fishing vessel. This sleek fishing machine is powered by twin 360 HP Crusader engines that make short work of the distances between the fishing spots. Daybreak’s up to date Garmin electronics and Cannon Downriggers will give you the edge when it comes to catching fish, while inside you will find a spacious head (restroom) - a must for any ladies in your group.

Bending Limits Sport Fishing operates from April through October. Come in the Spring, and you will be in with the best chance of catching Coho Salmon, a great eating fish that is prolific at this time of year. Come May, and Chinook (King) Salmon is your most likely hookup - this is a very large species of fish that will give any angler a run for their money. In June, the Lake Trout and Steelhead take over, while King Salmon come back in force in the Fall. Whenever your trip takes place, there will be plenty on the menu!

Whether you are on a corporate trip, family outing, or are having a day on the water with your friends, you will be very welcome aboard. Don’t forget - If Bending Limits Sport Fishing doesn’t put fish on the end of your line your charter is FREE!

Captain TJ Willacker is a licensed captain who has been Salmon fishing ever since he was a young boy. His obsession started when he was fishing with his father and hooked his first fish, and now he can think of no place on earth he would rather be than out on Lake Michigan fishing for Salmon and Trout. He has fished the lake from Michigan City, Indiana, to Frankfort, Michigan, and almost every port in between. Although he is one of the youngest captains in the area, his passion and lifetime of experience fishing these waters makes him stand out.

Captain TJ was very patient with the younger kids on our trip. He really helped to make a good fishing memory for my grandson. He was very excited about reeling in the two 10 lb fish he caught. Thanks again Captain TJ!

Excellent experience aboard Captain TJ’s boat.  He and Josh were both very personable and made for a great morning of fishing, both were very helpful and patient with us including my nine year old son.  We caught our limit early, which was a surprise!  Would book another fishing trip with Bending Limits without second thoughts!
