Pursuit Sport Fishing Charters

Come enjoy a memorable day on the water with Pursuit Sport Fishing Charters! Captain Kyle Knope has been fishing these waters his whole life and knows all the tricks you need for a successful pursuit. Whether you’re after your first or 100th fish, he’ll put the same amount of effort to make this day an unforgettable one.

Hop aboard a 30’ Pursuit 3000, that accommodates up to six guests. With powerful twin 300 HP MerCruiser engines, this cuddy cabin will glide to your fishing spot in no time. It usually doesn’t take longer than 20 minutes to get there and cast your line. There’s a private toilet on the boat, an enclosed cabin with lots of seating space, so you can count on a comfortable time there, even if you’re not used to boats.

You’ll target different types of Salmon (Coho and Chinook) and Trout (Lake, Brown, Steelhead), and Walleye. Trolling and casting with light tackle is the usual way you can catch them. You can keep your catch and the captain will clean them free of charge! If you’re going to save the fish for later, bring a cooler.

You’ll be provided with Akuma rods and reels and the captain will make sure there’s a variety of artificial bait you can use. You’ll need to purchase your license in advance and wear proper clothing. Bring your food and drinks, and don’t forget to charge your camera! There are going to be some moments you’ll want to keep forever.

"Ever since I was a toddler, I have been chasing fish. I have fished everywhere, spending most of my time on Michigan waters." Captain Kyle has been fishing for 25 years and thanks to his friend's suggestion, he started running trips full time. His favorite part of the job is seeing the smile on people's faces when they catch their first fish.
