Jerryriggin Sport Fishing Charters

Come aboard Jerryriggin Sportfishing Charters for a fun adventure on Lake Michigan. With Captain Jeremy, you can count on a fun trip. He’s got over 3 decades of experience fishing on Lake Michigan and multiple first-place and top-five wins on Lake Huron, Lake Michigan, and Lake Ontario as both captain and crew. Kids, beginners, and seasoned anglers will love this boat and learning from such a great captain. Join him in Manistee and embark on your adventure!

The captain’s 31’ Cherokee offshore sport fishing boat was made in Michigan and comes equipped with all you’ll need to catch some fish on the great lake. It’s got a bathroom, bed, and a ton of fishing gear. There’s space for 6 anglers on board to fish comfortably as well as an enclosed cabin to protect you from the elements.

You and the crew will have lots of fun chasing Lake and Rainbow Trout as well as Coho and Chinook Salmon. To attract them, you’ll be trolling on light and heavy tackle.

At the end of your fishing adventure, Captain Jeremy will clean and fillet your catch of the day. Rods, reels, and all the tackle are included in the price, but please remember to have your fishing license before you come aboard. You’ll also want to bring your own food and drinks for the trip. Light alcohol such as beer is fine, just make sure it is in cans only.

Also, be prepared for the weather – it’s usually chilly and damp in the morning, and then it warms up as the sun rises. Light rain is also not uncommon.

Captain Jeremy can’t wait to welcome you aboard for some great memories!
