Milwaukee Offshore Fishing Charters, Llc.

Milwaukee Offshore Fishing Charters offers the most exciting adventures for Salmon on Lake Michigan, Wisconsin. Fishing out of Milwaukee, Port Washington and Sturgeon Bay aboard a custom tournament boat, your arms will be tired and poles will be bending in just a quarter of an hour.

You will go out aboard the “Offshore414”, a 23-foot Dorado, which will get you to the grounds in no time. This beauty comes powered by a 200 HP Suzuki 4-stroke engine and is well-prepared for the current bite. Perfect for accommodating up to 6 anglers, the boat is fully rigged with the latest navigational electronics and safety equipment. There is a wireless trolling motor for a quiet ride, an ice-box for the catch, and a live well loaded with bait. Top-notch downriggers are also fitted for a professional trolling experience.

But trolling is not the only technique you will be using on your Lake Michigan fishing charter. Captain Mark and Captain Nick use bottom fishing, as well as light and heavy tackle. When fishing aboard the “Offshore414”, an outstanding catch is guaranteed.

As soon as the crew yell “Fish on!” and the captain hands you the rod, the fight begins. You will be going for a mighty Great Lake Michigan Salmon, Brown Trout, Lake Trout, tasty Coho, and the high-jumping Rainbow Trout.

The packages start from a 3-hour package to a 2 days special trip for the most die-hard anglers. You will be provided with quality gear, tackle, lures, and bait. When you return to the shore, your catch will be cleaned and ready to go home and jump straight into the frying pan. If you want to bring snacks, there is a cooler on board to keep them fresh. You will need to purchase a license prior to the trip and bring appropriate clothes.

Some trips, such as the 7-hour charters, have flexible start times based on afternoon availability.

The captain is great with families; especially kids so make sure to bring your little ones along.
