Rack 'em Up Sportfishing Charter

Hey there! Ready to experience the excitement of fishing on Lake Michigan? Well, look no further than Captain Dan!

You won’t believe the incredible game fish you’ll find in these waters - we’re talking Chinook (King) Salmon, Coho Salmon, Rainbow Trout (Steelhead), Lake Trout, and more! With a little luck, you’ll reel in a beauty.

And guess what? The whole family is welcome! Bring the kiddos along - don’t worry if you don’t have a child-sized life vest - just let us know, and we’ll make sure to have one ready for you. Oh, and make sure to pack some snacks so nobody gets hangry!

Now, let’s talk about the boat. You’ll be cruising in style aboard our 36’ Tiara Open, which can accommodate up to 6 passengers. Talk about comfort and space! We’ve even got a toilet on board - convenient, right? Plus, our vessel is wheelchair accessible, making it easy for everyone to join in on the fun.

Captain Dan has you covered when it comes to fishing gear. He’ll provide all the rods, reels, and lures you need for a successful day on the water. And to ensure smooth sailing, we’ve got a fantastic First Mate on board. They work their tails off to make sure your trip is absolutely unforgettable, so it’s customary to give them a tip of around 15-20%.

Before we set sail, just a little heads up - you will need to grab yourself a Michigan fishing license. You can find all the information you need online, so no worries there.

Now, let’s talk essentials. Remember to bring your sunglasses, non-spray sunscreen, and bottled water. If you want to bring other drinks, go for it! We allow alcohol in moderation, but let’s keep the hard liquor and glass bottles at home, okay?

At Rack ‘em Up Sport-fishing, we’re here to make your day on Lake Michigan an absolute breeze. So come on board, enjoy the stunning scenery, and create memories that will last a lifetime! Can’t wait to see you there!

I grew up fishing on Lake Michigan with my father, enjoying our summers as a family chasing salmon up and down the coast. My love for fishing is something that has always stuck with me, and lead me to start a Charter boat, so that I can share my love for fishing with others. I get just as much joy out of seeing the smile on someone's face when they reel in a fish as I get by reeling one in myself now.
