About the Captain

Craig Miller
St. Clair Shores, Michigan, United States
Member since January 2017
5
Captain Craig Miller grew up only a stone’s throw from Saginaw Bay and the Tittabawassee River and started fishing at an early age. Craig considers himself to be very lucky, having had an opportunity to fish for Walleye every day after school. When he turned 23, he moved to Detroit, Michigan, where he was introduced to the beautiful Lake St. Clair. There, he got his first taste of fishing for trophy Musky, which was the beginning of his passion for that freshwater gamefish. Captain Craig is U.S.C.G. Licensed Master Captain, Red Cross Certified in CPR & First Aid, as well as a Member of the Michigan Charter Boat Association and the Michigan-Ontario Muskie Club. For Craig, fishing is more than just business – it’s an obsession.
