Jack’s Charter Service

1750 North Lincoln Memorial Dr…
Milwaukee WI, United States

Jack’s Charter Service operates out of Milwaukee and Racine, WI running unbeatable trips targeting Trout and Salmon on beautiful Lake Michigan. Milwaukee is the perfect place to go to fish Lake Michigan, with the most state records caught from Milwaukee in the entire State of Wisconsin, and these guys are the best in town.

Their 36 ft Tiara yacht is powered by twin 475HP Crusader engines achieving a top speed of 30 knots, and is aptly named “The Leader” because no-one’s going to get out on the lake faster! She comes rigged for the task at hand, with a full battery of Raymarine electronics including two GPS and fishfinder units as well as radar; and tournament grade lures and top of the line Shimano rods and reels that you can be sure will get the job done. She also boasts an air-conditioned interior with a toilet and plenty of space to relax in between bites.

Captain Ken Poludnianyk has over 25 years of experience as a tournament-proven Captain and fisherman. Guiding is a full-time job for him, and so he always knows where the best and freshest spots are, and what’s working best day-in-day-out. He also works hard to maintain his reputation and great customer satisfaction, as it’s his business that’s on the line. He’ll be sure to work through exactly what you want to get from your trip to make sure you have the best time possible while out on the water.

All Captain Ken’s trips are child and family friendly, and come with a free cleaning and filleting service for anything you want to take home.

I have been a tournament angler on Lake Michigan for over 35 years and a captain for over 20 years. It is exciting to show guests the fast-paced action of Lake Michigan Charter Fishing. We have been fishing the waters off Milwaukee and Racine, Wisconsin since the early 70s. It is always my goal to provide a safe, fun, enjoyable and of course a successful day on the water.

Captain Ken was great!  The kids and I had a great time catching fish and decided to make it an annual event.  I highly recommend this boat and hope you get a chance to try it out for yourself…you won’t be sorry!
