Milwaukee Offshore – Port Washington

Milwaukee Offshore Fishing Charters will take you out on Lake Michigan, Wisconsin. Just 25 miles north of Milwaukee, Port Washington is the ideal to begin your sport fishing adventure. Captain Mark is a real threat to the local Salmon and can put you on trophies as soon as your hooks are baited!

Mark will take you out aboard the “Offshore414”. She is a 23-foot Dorado, a sport fishing boat that puts the fear in the competition. The “Offshore414” is powered by a 200 HP Suzuki 4-stroke motor and provides comfortable fishing space for up to four guests. She is fully equipped with navigational electronics, such as Simrad 4G broadband radar, Simrad Evo3 chart plotter, GPS graph, high chirp sonar with side scan, and Depth Raider speed and temperature monitor. The “Offshore414” is rigged with a T-top with an observation tower to aid your search for the fish, as well as Cannon Mag 10 STX down riggers for trolling.

Captain Mark begins his Port Washington fishing season with the last days of winter. If you are after a great catch to brag about for years to come, a 7-hour Lake Michigan charter is the best choice. As soon as you hear “Fish on!”, the captain will hand you the rod and the action will begin. Great Lake Michigan Salmon will be your main target, but who knows, you might pop into some nice Walleye!

Whether you decide to fish as early as 4:20 in the morning or later in the evening, the captain will provide you with all you need for a successful capture of the fish. The trips come with quality gear and tackle, as well as bait and the complimentary cleaning and packaging service. You only need to bring some snacks and a Wisconsin fishing license with a Great Lake fishing stamp.

Captain Mark fishes from various locations, including Milwaukee and Sturgeon Bay. Make a run down to Lake Michigan and create memories that will last a lifetime!

Certain trips, like the 7-hour packages, start at flexible times. You can contact the captain for information.
