Showtime Xtreme

If you’re looking for quality fishing and you want the right guide who’ll put you in front of the action, then Showtime Xtreme should be at the top of your list. Captain Sammy Worden is a tournament sport fisher with multiple titles to his name. When he’s not breaking records, he’s taking customers out on Lake Michigan, showing them a good time and helping them land the fish of their dreams.

His boat is a 27’ Triton with ample walkaround room for you and 5 others to fish comfortably at the same time. She’s equipped with state-of-the-art electronics, including radar, GPS, fishfinder, VHF radio, as well as a sound system for you to enjoy some tunes while you fish. She also comes with a portable toilet and shower if you need to rinse off or freshen up.

You’ll also have a live bait tank, downriggers, and top-of-the-line fishing gear made by Okuma, Ugly Stik, Shakespeare, and Penn. You’ll be able to do a bit of trolling or bottom fishing, as well as jigging or spinning, depending on what you’re trying to target. You’ll be able to catch Lake Trout, Smallmouth Bass, as well as Salmon, Yellow Perch, Freshwater Drum, Whitefish, Burbot, and more, depending on the season.

Catch cleaning and filleting is also included in the price, so fill the captain’s cooler with as many fish as you can and take them home later for a delicious meal! Just be sure to purchase your fishing license before your trip, and bring sunscreen, a hat, and extra layers of clothing in case it gets windy.

Arrive at the dock 15 minutes before departure and feel free to bring a cooler with food and drinks. Everything else will be covered so you can enjoy a fun and stress-free trip with your family or friends. Book your next fishing charter with Showtime Xtreme and get ready for an incredible experience on Lake Michigan!

Captain Sammy Worden knew he wanted to become a fisherman from the day he caught his first Salmon at the age of 11. He’s been hooked ever since and hasn’t been able to shake the “Salmon Fever!" In 2009, he partnered up with a local angler, bought a boat, and started running charters on Lake Michigan. Capt. Sammy has also won multiple prestigious offshore tournaments, from Florida to Cabo San Lucas, and he still competes every year. When he’s not participating in tournaments, he’s running Showtime Xtreme, putting customers on massive Chinook! Book your charter today and come see what Salmon Fishing on Lake Michigan is all about.
