Master Captain Matt has been fishing on Lake Michigan for 20+ years, first with his father and now with his wife Lisa and daughters Kenzie and Maddie. Although walleye and northern pike fishing in the Midwest is fun, Matt's true love is being on big water and reeling in his next big catch. Matt loves sharing his passion and knowledge for fishing with his guests, so feel free to ask questions!
