Silver Lining Charters

Silver Lining Charters invites you for a day of fishing the beautiful and calm waters of Lake Michigan and the Manistee River. You and Captain Alan Zebrowski will have a lovely time exploring these charming waters full of delicious and elusive freshwater species. Captain Alan will use his lifelong experience to provide you with a safe, enjoyable, and successful trip you won’t easily forget. Join him in Manistee, Michigan, and create beautiful memories fishing with Silver Lining Charters.

Your trip starts on a 21’ homemade jet boat that can accommodate up to 3 anglers and is accessible to guests using wheelchairs, too. It runs on a 150 HP Yamaha Jet engine and has got a modern GPS, fishfinder, and radio electronics to help you navigate efficiently and safely. There’s an ice box on board too that you can use to store food and drinks.

Using heavy tackle, you’ll be spinning and jigging for Rainbow Trout, Walleye, and Chinook and Coho Salmon. You’re free to keep the fish you catch and take it home if you wish. Kids are also welcome to come aboard, so bring them with you and enjoy a lovely family outing on the water.

All the rods, reels, tackle, live bait, and lures are included in the trip. If you want him to, Captain Alan will also clean and fillet your catch free of charge. Before you start the trip, just make sure to bring the food and drinks of your choice.
