Cast-A-Way Charters specializes in providing a memorable experience to all their clients and friends. If you are looking for a trip of a lifetime, be it on Lake Michigan or Lake Winnebago, you have found the right place.

If a day out on the Great Lake sounds more like your thing, head to beautiful Port Washington, Wisconsin. Explore its productive waters and enjoy fishing some of the top spots for King Salmon. Begin the season with Salmon fishing and mix it up with a healthy dose of the summer Brown Trout and Steelhead.

If Salmon and Trout are not your main priority, let the Captain put you on top of the hottest Walleye bite. Join him on Lake Winnebago in June or July for a productive day out on the water. You can get your hands on a good eater-size fish!

Whichever trip you decide to go for, rest assured that the captain will put his talent to work for you. He will provide you with quality rods, reels, tackle, and lures to make a great catch possible. Once you’re done catching, he will gladly clan and bag your fish.

Join him aboard a 22’ Wellcraft walkaround fiberglass boat. This spacious fishing machine comes powered by a 270 HP Volvo Punta inboard engine and a 9.9 HP kicker motor. There is plenty of space for up to 4 anglers onboard!

The boat is outfitted with modern fishing electronics, electric Big Jon downriggers, and a bathroom for your maximum comfort on the water. All you have to do is just sit back, relax, and get ready to catch some fish!
