If you want to see what all the fuss about freshwater fishing is, there’s no better place than Lake Michigan. The action is phenomenal and the service provided by Big Daddy’s Charter is excellent to boot. Let Captain Edward Vanover show you why this region has its strong angling reputation!
Capt. Edward invites you to join him for this adventure on board his 26’ Angler Qwest pontoon. She is brand new, built in 2019, and her design is perfectly suited to navigating the sea-like waters of Lake Michigan. She’s powered by a 200 HP Suzuki engine – it’ll get you to your fishery in no time.
Speaking of quick, you’ll be on top of the fish within 30 minutes of leaving the dock – just enough time to get in the right groove for angling! You’ll troll for all the A-listers of the locale like Chinook and Coho Salmon, Pink Salmon, Rainbow and Lake Trout, as well as Walleye – all depending on the season. Salmon fans should aim for a trip from the middle of July to the middle of September, while Trout fishers can land their favorite fish from May through July.
Capt. Edward will provide you with all the required tackle and safety equipment. All you need to get is a valid Michigan fishing license – you can buy it at most tackle shops. Kids aged 6 and up are more than welcome on board, the captain provides vests in all sizes.
If you’re ready to experience freshwater fishing on Lake Michigan the right way, book a trip with Big Daddy’s Charter. Enjoy it rod in hand with Capt. Edward!
