This is by far the best fishing charter on Lake Michigan!!!
Captain Dennis went above and beyond our expectations not only on the trip itself but everything leading up to the big day. My family is a shoot from the hip type of family when it comes to planning a trip and Dennis made us feel like we were all snipers.
Two-three hours after I booked the trip I got a call from Dennis to confirm our trip and this gave me an opportunity to ask any questions and clear things up. Our biggest concern was our dog, Leo. He is a 100+ lbs German Shepard who had never been on a boat. As a family, we thought this was the perfect opportunity to test his Lake legs and Captain Dennis was all for it.
We planned the trip on Sunday, met up with Dennis on Monday, and we were out on the water Tuesday morning 4:30 Am. When we met Dennis on Monday, he was very polite and just a Genuine guy. Dennis helped Leo get in the boat to familiarize himself with everything and had no doubt that he would do fine tomorrow on the boat.
While Leo was sniffing around we asked Dennis several questions. Being born and raised in Port Washington, Dennis was very knowledgeable about the area. He recommended hotels, dinner spots, grocery stores, and most importantly where to get our fishing licenses. Eventually, we got to bed after visiting all his recommended spots and got ready for the next morning.
Finally!!!! it’s fishing day!!!
After a long night with very little sleep, we got on the boat. It was a very foggy morning, but it made for a nice cool atmosphere around us. We were on the water at 4:45 and headed about 5 miles out into the Lake. We carried conversations and bonded over several fishing stories which made for a wonderful time.
Two and a half hours in we get our first hit! We landed the perfect eating sized 3.5 lbs, salmon and continued fishing. As we were heading in we got another hit and it was a beautiful 6.7 lbs, Rainbow Trout.
Overall the Experience was amazing!!! Quality fishing and Phenomenal family time

I drove my family from Texas to Chicago for the 4th of July holiday. My kids (10 and 8) recently caught the fishing bug and were looking to bag bigger fish than the ones customarily caught in Texas ponds and lakes (sunfish, crappie, catfish and the occasional bass).
The excursion captained by Dennis Brede and his 1st mate Nolan was an unforgettable experience! My kids got what they wanted. Bagging King Salmon, Coho and a huge Rainbow Trout was beyond their wildest fishing dreams!
Captain Dennis is the consummate professional. Very friendly, conversant and patient. Nolan was like a big brother to my kids for the very brief time we spent with him.
I highly recommend DJ’s Fish Tales to anyone. They helped us create an experience to last a lifetime. We cannot wait to come back to Wisconsin and do this again. Matter of fact, as soon as we hit the road to go back to Chicago, my daughter said “when can we do this again Daddy?”

Fishing was a bit tough because of recent storms that had passed through the area but captain and crew worked their butts off to put us on fish ... Dennis was extremely knowledge and certainly knew his business ... he was friendly and engaging ... it was a wonderful experience and will be going out with him again!
