Keepin’ It Reel Charters

If you’ve always wanted to reel in the catch of your dreams on Lake Michigan, then Keepin’ It Reel Charters offers a variety of angling adventures for you. Captain Greg Mccrumb is known for his honesty and friendliness, so who could be better to guide you around these plentiful waters?

Lake Michigan is home to a bounty of Trout and Salmon species, including Rainbow Trout, Coho and Chinook Salmon, and plenty of others. Capt. Greg has spent years chasing different types of fish on the lake, and will use his wealth of knowledge and experience to have you cruising the hottest fishing grounds around in no time.

You’ll be exploring the lake onboard his 27’ Tiara center console. She can comfortably accommodate up to 4 anglers, and her spacious deck means that you’ll all be able to fish at the same time. The boat has everything you need to have a fun and productive day on the water – GPS, fishfinder, life jackets, a private toilet, and even an enclosed cabin to protect you from the elements!

As well as reeling in a variety of Salmon and Trout on Lake Michigan, you’ll get the opportunity to explore the Manistee River. If you’ve always wanted to try your hand at some first-class freshwater fishing, then just let your captain know – he’ll provide all the necessary freshwater gear to have you reeling in some huge Steelhead.

Your trip includes top-quality rods and reels, as well as tackle and artificial lures to tempt your catch. Your captain will also clean and fillet your haul for you.

If you want to tick Lake Michigan off of your fishing bucket list, join Keepin’ It Reel Charters to experience the angling adventure of a lifetime!
