Reel Sensation Charters

Come and experience the Great Lakes with Reel Sensation Charters, who run Salmon and Trout fishing trips on Lake Michigan from the port of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The crew pride themselves on customer experience and give 110% on every trip. You will fish aboard one of their two boats, both of which are clean and comfortable, and are rigged professionally for your total experience.

The “Trophy Hunter” is a 33’ Wellcraft Coastal vessel that boasts a wide beam and spacious back deck, allowing up to six guests to find a comfortable fishing position or to relax and enjoy a beautiful day out on the water. With twin 330HP Mercruiser engines, this boat is fast, maximizing your time spent fishing, while it also comes equipped with Raymarine electronics including GPS chartplotter, fishfinder, radar, autopilot and marine radio. The boat features Cannon downriggers, Rupp outriggers, quality Shimano fishing rods and Okuma reels, as well as a stereo system and private toilet facilities.

“Go Fish” is a 31’ Sea Ray, which also provides ample space for six anglers to fish in comfort. It is fitted with Big Jon downriggers and quality Okuma rods and reels to increase your chances of a successful catch.

Reel Sensation Charters are constantly updating their fishing gear, so rest assured you will always be using modern and quality equipment. Charters run from April through October, and include rods, reels and terminal tackle, lures, as well as catch cleaning and filleting. Don’t forget to organise your Wisconsin Fishing License and Great Lakes Trout Stamp prior to your trip.

My passion for Lake Michigan began as a child. As I got older that passion grew stronger, and at the age of 23, I decided to give guiding a try. I found out fairly quickly that I was pretty good at it, so it didn't take long to become one of Milwaukee Wisconsin's busiest captains. I enjoy people and showing them the high energy fishing that Lake Michigan has to offer.
