The crew of Fishin’ Finn-Atics has something to offer to any breed of angler. If you are a beginner fisherman who has never held a fishing rod in your hand, a proud parent of a younger angler who needs to be introduced to fishing, or a seasoned veteran, there is a trip for you.

Explore the beautiful Lake Michigan with Captain Mike Jablonski. He has been mastering the waters of this Great Lake for his whole life and is more than familiar with the most productive spots around.

On your day out, you will be able to get your hands on Chinook “King” Salmon, as well as Coho Salmon, and Steelhead. Whichever challenge suits you best, rest assured that Capt. Mike will put his talent to work for you. You will be trolling with copper line, lead core line, and downriggers.

Your boat for the day will be a 30’ Baha Cruiser, which is a comfortable fishing machine with twin 260 HP Mercruiser engines. It can comfortably accommodate up to 6 anglers and is rigged with fishfinding and navigational electronics, a restroom, and even a bed to take a nap in.

All the necessary rods, reels, tackle, and lures will be provided for the trip. A first mate will be there to assist you throughout the adventure and to clean your catch once you’re done fishing. Your lunch and drinks are welcome on board.

Captain Mike Jablonski is a knowledgeable angler with a lifetime of Great Lakes fishing experience. There is nothing more gratifying to Captain Mike than being able to put someone on their fish! He began fishing when he was a young boy; it was his father who introduced Mike to fishing. They would go either hunting or exploring the waters every weekend, enjoying everything the outdoors had to offer.
