Lake Michigan is one of those places that are simply blessed with incredible fishing. Combine that fact with the immaculate service that Top Shelf Charters provides to its guests and you have the recipe for an unforgettable fishing adventure!
Join Captain Kirk Heilman on board of his 40’ Sea Ray, the “Black Label.” She was originally built in 1987 and restored in 2013 – like a fine wine she only got better with age. Powered by twin 400 HP Crusaders, you will cruise along comfortably. She’s quite spacious thanks to her large aft, allowing for up to 6 anglers to fish in comfort, without tangling lines or knocking over gear.
Serious fishing requires serious equipment, and she’s chock full of it! A flybridge allows you to spot your topwater prey from far away. Outriggers and downriggers are essential when trolling for Salmon or other species, and your reach will be extended with them, both to the side and below. If you need to take a break from the reel-screaming action the fully air-conditioned cabin with a toilet and bed is ready. No need to worry about holding it in on longer trips, a full-head toilet is available.
Capt. Kirk will take you fishing for the famous King Salmon, as well as Coho Salmon, Steelhead, Lake and Brown Trout. The Black Label has ample space to fill her coolers with all the keepers you reel in (within local regulation).
Kids are welcome on board, provided they are aged 3 and above. The captain will supply you with PFDs in all sizes. A fishing license is required; you can buy one on the boat on the day.
If you’re ready to see just why Lake Michigan has a reputation for excellent fishing, book a trip with Top Shelf Charters and get ready to cast off on a fishing experience of a lifetime!
