On The Line Charters is located in Grand Haven and offers to show you a memorable time in these waters.

Capt. Nik will do his best to make sure you have a fun day full of fishing. This involves 6-hour trips, mainly fishing for Rainbow Trout, Lake Trout, Brown Trout, Perch, and Salmon, depending on the season and conditions on the day. On these trips, you can expect to use techniques such as light tackle, heavy tackle, bottom fishing, trolling, jigging, and spinning.

Your fishing adventure starts on a 33’ Tiara boat that can safely take up to 6 anglers. This boat comes with a toilet, AC, and an ice-box.

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. The crew will clean and fillet your catch for you to take home at the end of the trip.

Book your trip now and hit the water with On The Line Charters.
