Based out of Holland, Michigan, Captain Tim Becker runs exciting freshwater trips for anglers of all skill levels. He’s fished Lake Michigan for over 25 years and knows its productive waterways in and out!

Hop aboard his 30’ Baha Cruiser offshore sport fishing boat, powered by a 395 HP Mercruiser engine. This wide-bodied beauty can comfortably accommodate up to 6 guests. She also features the latest navigational and safety equipment to ensure your trip is successful and safe. What’s more, there’s a spacious stand-up bathroom and a sleeping berth!

Capt. Tim takes you fishing on Lake Michigan for delicious Chinook and Coho Salmon, as well as Lake and Brown Trout. Alternatively, you head to Lake Macatawa to find some tasty Sheepshead on the other end of your line.

Both lakes are well-known freshwater fishing havens and boast productive year-round fisheries! As a result, Capt. Tim takes you fishing throughout the seasons so you can always get your fix of fish.

He provides all the fishing gear you need for a successful day including rods, reels, tackle, lures, and live bait. He or his first mate will also clean and bag your catch at the end of the trip. All you’ll need to remember to bring is a valid Michigan fishing license and weather-appropriate clothing!
