Leisure Time Charters

Book a trip with Leisure Time Charters and have a stupendous time fishing for Salmon! Captain Mike will gladly take you out and show you some of the best fisheries on Lake Michigan.

Not only does your captain have 35 of fishing experience under his belt, he also holds a Wisconsin state record for catching the biggest Coho Salmon, that weighed 26 pounds, 2 ounces. If you are looking for a chance to land a new personal record catching Salmon, heading out with Capt. Mike is by far your best bet.

His trusty partner and your transportation for the day is a 37’ Sea Ray cruiser, perfectly equipped to take you and up to 5 more anglers to unforgettable fishing adventures. She has twin 370 HP Cummins engines that can develop a speed of 38 mph. Because the vessel is fast and stable, you will be in the best fishing spots in no time.

The boat is very spacious and clean, and on it, you’ll find all the fishing gear you might need. Rods, reel, lures, and tackle are all included in the price, as well as catch cleaning and filleting, you just bring a cooler or a bag to take your catch home.

Capt. Mike specializes in trolling, which means everybody on the boat can fish at the same time. You will be catching Coho and Chinook Salmon, as well as Lake, Rainbow and Brown Trout, all of which are not only fun to catch, but also make a fabulous meal.

Kids, novices, and passionate anglers can all join in on a trip with Leisure Time Charters. Hook your biggest Salmon yet and have the best time discovering the bountiful waters of Lake Michigan!

I have been a fisherman since I can remember, but charter fishing offered an opportunity to earn a living while doing something I enjoy. After 35 years, it is still as exciting as it was when I first started it. I was lucky enough to have a client catch the current state record for Coho Salmon in 1999, which is 26 pounds, 2 ounces. I look forward to breaking the record again sometime in the future.
