West Shore Guide Service is located in Monroe and offers to show you a memorable time in these waters. Come join Capt. Chris on your next fishing adventure. He feels fortunate to fish two world-class fisheries – Lake Erie, the Walleye Capital of the World, and Lake St. Clair, a true Muskie factory. The captain is a licensed USCG captain, fully insured and MDNR inspected. He looks forward to sending you home with full coolers and great memories.

Capt. Chris will do his best to make sure you have a fun day full of fishing. This involves 6 to 10-hour trips, mainly fishing for Walleye, Perch, and Muskellunge, depending on the season and conditions on the day. On these trips, you can expect to use techniques such as trolling, drift fishing, and jigging.

Your fishing adventure starts on a 21’ Ranger boat that can safely take up to 4 anglers. This boat comes with a wireless trolling motor.

All rods, reels, and terminal tackle are included in the price so you can focus on what really matters, fishing. Please make sure to buy a valid fishing license ahead of time.

Book your trip now and hit the water with West Shore Guide Service.
