Class Act Charters is offering a one-of-a-kind personalized sport fishing charter experience. Your host and guide for the day is expert fisherman Capt. Mike Pajtas. He lives by "The Golden Rule", which is the principle of treating others as you want to be treated. He’s a patient teacher and will show you all the tricks you need to learn, to catch the fish of your dreams.

The boat you’ll be fishing from is a 20 Polar Kraft that accommodates up to 5 guests. The boat is powered by a 225 HP Suzuki engine and features all modern navigational electronics and safety gear. The boat also has a multimedia system, a live bait tank, and trolling gear. Since there’s no shade on the boat, make sure to bring your sunglasses and a hat.

The period between April and mid-May is reserved for Walleye adventures. This season takes place on the Detroit River and you’ll mainly go jigging. Other months bring different species with them, so you can also go after Steelhead, Lake Trout, Yellow Perch, and Chinook Salmon. Send a request for a personalized trip if you had something different in mind.

All fishing equipment is covered for this trip and Capt. Mike will also clean the catch afterward. There’s not a lot of people who can clean fish that well. You need to prepare your fishing license and pack some snacks and drinks for the day out.

Captain Mike and Class Act Charters have one motto: If it’s not going to be fun we are not going!
