Join Hooked Up Charters for an amazing day on Lake Michigan! Based in Spring Lake, Captain Hunter offers fishing trips year round. He’s been fishing in the area ever since he was just a kid and he knows these waters like the back of his palm. Capt. Hunter welcomes anglers of all ages and skill levels, as it’s never too early (or too late) to start your fishing adventure!

You’ll be fishing on a 31’ Tiara Pursuit that accommodates up to 6 guests. This offshore sportfishing boat is powered by twin 350 HP Mercruiser engines that reach the speed of 30 knots. The boat is very comfortable and offers all kinds of amenities, such as a private toilet, a galley, and an enclosed air-conditioned cabin.

Choose between a morning and an afternoon trip and go after different types of Salmon and Trout. You’ll mostly be trolling for them, which is an enjoyable waiting game. You get to keep the catch and Capt. Hunter will clean it for you free of charge.

All fishing equipment is included in the price. You need to bring your fishing licenses and pack some food, drinks, and sun protection for your day out.

Hooked Up Charters is here for a fun and educational day on the water. You’ll leave with some long-lasting memories and a bag full of fresh fish fillets. Pick a date and see you at the dock!
