Skyward Salmon Charters

Visit Skyward Salmon Charters and have a beautiful day on Lake Michigan. Starting out of Kenosha, Wisconsin, Captain Matt Wagemann will take you to the best spots on the lake and help you have a great time as you search its fish-rich grounds. Join in and spend a lovely day in nature fishing renowned Lake Michigan!

Your boat for the day is a 31’ Pacemaker flybridge that can sit up to 6 guests. It runs on a twin 350 HP Chevrolet engine, is rigged with comprehensive navigation technology, and uses downriggers. The boat’s got a flybridge and toilet, and, to make the service even better, you’ll have the help of a first mate as well as access to a refrigerator.

Fishing Lake Michigan offers you plenty of opportunity for landing a good catch. You’ll target various sorts of Salmon and Trout and will attract them by trolling on heavy tackle. You get to keep and take home all the fish you catch and you’re also free to bring along children on your trip.

Captain Matt will take care of all the fishing gear needed for the trip, including all the rods, reels, tackle as well as lures. In addition, he can clean, fillet, and bag your catch if you want, free of charge. You’ll just need your licenses as well as some food and drinks.

Join Skyward Salmon Charters and the captain for a wonderful day on Lake Michigan and have fun fishing!
