There’s a fish with your name on it in Grand Haven and Fish On Charters will help you catch it! Having logged many hours on these waters, Captain Cory can tell you all about the local fishery.

You’re going after Chinook Salmon, Lake Trout, Rainbow Trout (Steelhead), Coho Salmon, and the occasional Brown Trout. Your catch will be cleaned and bagged at the end of your trip for you to take home.

Your boat for the day is a 31’ Tiara with space for 6 passengers. The boat is equipped with all the latest technology for fish locating and safety. Radar, autopilot, sonars, speed and temp detection, top-of-the-line stereo, VHF radio, Life Jackets, and everything that is needed to make your trip fun, enjoyable, and most importantly safe!

You’ll also have the help of a First Mate to put you on fish. A 10–20% tip is customary to show your appreciation for their hard work. First mate Ken has decades of experience on Lake Michigan and is an Army veteran.

You can’t go wrong when you bring sunblock (non-spray), sunglasses, and bottled water. Alcohol is allowed in moderation, so long as you avoid hard liquor as well as glass bottles.

Go ahead and treat yourself to a day on the water with Fish On Charters!!
