Fish Napper Charters, LLC

220 Anchors Way
St. Joseph MI, United States

Fish Napper Charters invites you to enjoy a fun and productive day on the mighty Lake Michigan. Based in St. Joseph, the company specializes in connecting their clients and friends to the wonders that this Great Lake has to offer.

On your day out, you will be fishing with Capt. Nate Ender – a local angler and a third generation charter captain. Michigan native, Nate grew up mastering the waters of the lake out of St. Joseph and knows them like the back of his hand. With Capt. Ender, fishing is better on your side of the lake!

Fish Napper operates the ‘Admiral Hook’, a 38’ custom-built Trojan Express boat. With a wide 14’ beam, the vessel gives you and your guests a very spacious fishing deck. The Admiral Hook comes powered by Crusader engines and is rigged with fishfinding and navigational electronics to build up a clear image of where the fish are hiding.

Bring your family with you and let the Admiral Hook take you trolling for the best species Lake Michigan has to offer. You will be able to get your hands on Lake Trout, Perch, Steelhead, and Chinook and Coho Salmon.

Fish Napper will provide you with rods, reels, tackle, bait, lures, and a complimentary fish cleaning service. You will need to purchase a valid Michigan fishing license for anyone older than 17 and bring your own snacks and drinks.

About the Captain

Nathan Ender
St. Joseph, Michigan, United States
Member since July 2014

I am a third generation captain. Before I graduated St. Joseph, MI high school, I already held my 100-ton master's captain’s license along with numerous Lake Michigan Salmon and Trout tournament victories all over the lake. Now years later and fishing nearly every single day, I will make sure to use the knowledge I have running through my veins to ensure you the best trip anyone can give.

Great chance for a few teenage boys to fish alongside their dad. Nate is clearly knowledgeable, and the views are an added bonus. 18 fish in a few hours! Well worth it.
