Line Dancer Sport Fishing

Line Dancer Sport Fishing is your key to the finest Salmon and Trout fishing on Lake Michigan. It operates out of Benton Harbor, Michigan and is located at Pier 1000 Marina, the finest marina on the St. Joseph River. Cruising out on the river to Lake Michigan, you’ll be able to enjoy some of the nation’s finest big game, freshwater sport fishing!

You will be fishing with two experienced captains. Captain Don Adams has been fishing for almost 40 years. He started chartering a few years ago to start sharing his love of fishing with others. Captain Bob Clark has been fishing professionally on Lake Michigan since 1986. If you want two seasoned captains with a firm grip on fishing, they are the ones.

The trip starts on a 30’ Baha offshore sport fisherman that can take up to 6 people – perfect for groups of friends or families with children – with great seating room for everyone to be comfortable. The boat is equipped with top-of-the-line navigation gear, a toilet, kitchen, and bed. It is not only stable and cozy but also boasts the most up-to-date fishing gear, which is what most anglers want. To make sure you reach your fishing spot fast, the boat uses twin 285 HP Ford 351 Windsor engines.

Your catch can vary in numbers depending on the season but the species you’re most likely to hook are Chinook (King) Salmon, Coho Salmon, Lake Trout, and Steelhead Trout. You and the crew will use the best way to attract them – trolling. Feel free to keep all the fish you catch so you can enjoy delicious meals when you get back home. All the kids are welcome to join in, so bring them along and have a wonderful family outing together.

The rods, reels, and tackle will be provided onboard and Captains Don and Bob will also clean your catch. All you should bring are your fishing licenses and some food and drinks for the day. Also, don’t forget your cooler to take your catch home.

Join Line Dancer Sport Fishing and it will take you on an adventure of a lifetime. Let’s go fishing!

The captain grew up fishing Walleye on Lake Erie. It was always his father's dream to become a charter captain and start charting. They are a close family and the captain is the third-generation owner in the family business. When his father passed away, the captain decided to fulfill his father's dream by becoming a captain and starting chartering. Now that he wants to retire from concrete work, the captain is transitioning to full-time fishing.
