Big Kahoona Charters

Big Kahoona Charters invites you to enjoy Salmon fishing at its finest on the beautiful waters of Lake Michigan, Wisconsin. Whether you are an experienced angler or a complete beginner, Captain James will work hard to provide you with a memorable and action-packed day out.

Join the captain aboard his 18’ Tracker boat. The vessel was built with comfort in mind and can accommodate up to two anglers. Its 50 HP Mercury engine will power you and your friend to the hottest spots and “honey holes”. The vessel is fully outfitted with navigational electronics, safety equipment, and other professional accessories.

With Big Kahoona Charters, your main target will be King Salmon. The captain will take you trolling the hottest spots to take Salmon off your “angling bucket list”. And if you want to test yourself in casting and trolling for other species that patrol the waters of Lake Michigan, just let your captain know. He will put you right on top of Musky, Northern Pike, Walleye, and Smallmouth Bass.

All trips come inclusive with quality rods, reels, tackle, and lures. When you return to the shore, your captain will fillet ad package your catch with a vacuum sealer to keep it fresh. Smoking and shipping can also be arranged for an additional fee.
