Trident Sportfishing, LLC

Trident Sportfishing invites you to experience Muskegon charter fishing on Lake Michigan at its finest. Whether it’s your first time on the water and you have never held a fishing rod in your hand or you are an avid angler, the crew will meet your any specific need. You will only have to reel in the fish, and the crew will take care of everything else.

If Lake Michigan charter fishing sounds appealing, the 31-foot “Venture” is your ticket to a great trip. The beauty comes powered by twin 454 HP Crusader combined with velvet transmissions and tuned props. The “Venture” is well-prepared for the current bite and provides comfortable fishing space for up to six anglers. She is fully rigged with modern navigational electronics, which include all new Raymarine sonar, radar, chirp sonar, Fishawk X4D down temp, speed probe, GPS, and Downscan imaging. There are Traxtech downriggers fitted for a professional fishing experience. Inside, the “Venture” is equipped with everything you need for a comfortable day out.

Trident Sportfishing will take you to the hottest spots for some rod-bending action for the always moving and sneaky game fish. Depending on the time of the year, you will be trolling for Chinook (King) Salmon, Coho Salmon, Lake Trout, Brown Trout, and Steelhead. A typical trip will begin at the dock, where the Captain will meet you and go through all the details. Once you’ve departed, you will arrive at your fishing grounds and start wetting the line. The crew will do all the work and you will have all the fun!

Trips come with quality rods, reels, tackle, and lures. When you return to the shore, your catch will be cleaned and filleted, ready to go home and jump straight into the frying pan. Feel free to bring your own snacks and drinks, there will be plenty of space in the coolers and the fridge. You will also need to purchase a Michigan Fishing License prior to the trip.
