All of the species are available in good numbers in both lakes respectively and are available almost year round.

Captain Tim will provide you with all the fishing gear you need in order to catch fish and that includes rods, reels, tackle, lures, and live baits. He and first mate will also clean all fish and package it for you. Captain Tim says he looks forward to meeting each and every one of you!

    This charter is great for families with children as Lake Macatawa is a lot calmer than Lake Michigan. You will fish for Sheepshead which are available here in good numbers and also put up a great fight so they are quite fun to catch and kids love them.
