Whitecap Charters – Charlevoix 31'

Visit Lake Michigan and explore these beautiful waters with Whitecap Charters on the new 31’ Amberjack ‘‘Double Trouble’’ boat. The crew has a lot of experience fishing these grounds, so they’ll make for the perfect team to show you the best hot spots in the area.

The season is open from May and the crew hosts fishing adventures until late October. You’ll do some light tackle fishing in the spring and summer, but you’ll use heavy tackle if you go out in September and October.

Enjoy this beautiful lake on the 31’ SeaRay motor yacht, restored in 2019. The boat is equipped with all the navigational and safety equipment to provide you with the best fishing experience. It can accommodate up to 6 anglers fishing at the same time, so bring your friends and family with you.

The crew will have top of the line Shimano fishing gear for your convenience. You’ll be fishing using live bait, and the captain will clean your catch if you wish to take it home to the table. You can expect to catch anything from Chinook and Coho Salmon to Lake Trout, Brown Trout, Walleye, Yellow Perch, and Rainbow Trout.

Snacks and drinks can be provided for you on board, and there’s a catering service you can use for lunch – the captain can pick up lunch for you at an extra fee.

Bring some sunscreen and your fishing license, and you can join Whitecap Charters for your Lake Michigan fishing adventure!
