The Great Lake Michigan is home to many great fish species that are the cornerstone of freshwater fishing. Its size and biodiversity offer anglers a chance to have exciting offshore fishing with freshwater species. Charterboat XSTREAM aims to do just that, join Captain Rich Tanner as he plows through the swell and helps you net your dream catch.

The boat you’ll fish from is a 32’ Wellcraft offshore sportfisherman, capable of holding 6 anglers at the same time in comfort. It’s powered by twin 350 HP Crusader engines, capable of giving her a comfortable maximum cruising speed of 20 knots. The boat is properly equipped for offshore fishing, with outriggers and a state-of-the-art navigation and fishfinding system. A full-head bathroom is also available on board, for added comfort on longer trips.

The fish you will target are all exciting species, Lake, Brown, and Rainbow Trout, along with Chinook and Coho Salmon. Light and heavy tackle can be used, but trolling is a major technique as well.

All required equipment is provided to the customers by Captain Rich. Clients are advised to bring sunscreen, polarized sunglasses, adequate clothing, waterproof footwear, and a waterproof camera to take pictures of their catch. Children are welcome aboard and Capt. Rich loves instructing young anglers in the tricks of Lake Michigan. Live bait is available for use on this charter.

One of our party was from Key West, first time on Lake Michigan. Best fishing trip ever! Captain Rich & crew were fun, very knowledgeable and efficient and made the trip exciting. We went out on a Wednesday morning, filled up by 9:30, caught everything we wanted. They were delicious grilled, can’t wait to smoke the king salmon. We would highly recommend booking a trip on this Charterboat XSTREAM!
