Hakuna Matata Charters

70 Church St.
Algoma WI, United States

If you are game for some serious fishing fun, give Hakuna Matata Charters a try. From targeting acrobatic Steelhead to battling hard-fighting Chinook Salmon and everything in between, they have a trip for you.

Head to Algoma to fish Lake Michigan the way it was meant to be fished. Enjoy the finest angling opportunities this part of Wisconsin has to offer and have a fun workout with your fishing rod.

Every breed of angler is welcome to join in the adventure. Your main target for the day will be Chinook “King” Salmon and Rainbow Trout but the local waters are also home to exciting Coho Salmon, Brown Trout, and Lake Trout that you might also fish for.

The crew will take you up to 24 miles out into the lake aboard their spacious 36’ Trojan express cruiser. Captain Byron and his first mate Bruce maintain the boat in excellent condition and equip it with the finest tackle and modern electronics. The vessel comes powered by twin 350 HP Crusader engines and has enough room to accommodate up to 6 anglers.

The boat also features a restroom, a sleeping area, a refrigerator, and even a shower. With all the comforts of home, you will be able to relax in between the bites or even take a quick nap.

The season begins in May and goes through October. The trips run 7 days a week and include all the equipment and gear, along with the proper care of your catch.

Went on a 5 hour afternoon trip on August 15th.With my 7 year old son and I. The weather was great. The captain and first mate treated my son with the upmost respect answering his questions and explaining everything to him. The first mate played games on the phone together. That was above and beyond what he had to do.  We caught 8 rainbows and 2 kings. We went 10 for 12 in total. We plan to go ice fishing with them and back out on Lake Michigan in June and August next year. I would recommend them to anyone.

Comfortable boat for our group of 6 and plenty of room for kids to move around.  Slow day for most boats but they got us on some fish.
