Kinn's Sport Fishing - Algoma 38'

With Kinn’s Sport Fishing, the beautiful waters of Lake Michigan will be all yours. This is a family-friendly company that is operated by native captains who know the area like the back of their hands. Join them in Algoma and create memories that will last a lifetime.

Kinn’s Sport Fishing was founded back in 1969 by the late Howard Kinn. One of the first in the industry, this company has evolved into Wisconsin’s premier fishing destination thanks to its enthusiasm and dedication.

Enjoy the same high standards and commitment to excellence that the company has stood for since 1969. On your day out, you will be treated like part of the crew and will be able to see that they built this business for you!

Your captain and the deckhand will assist you throughout the adventure. You will be able to try your hand at trolling for Coho Salmon, Lake Trout, Brown Trout, and Steelhead – all depending on the season.

During the spring months and until mid-summer, you can come back to shore with excellent mixed bag catches. Late summer and fall will see you concentrating on Brown Trout, Chinook Salmon, and Steelhead.

All that magic will happen aboard a 38’ Bertram boat. Its twin 330 HP Mercruiser will power you and 5 fishing buddies to the hottest grounds on the lake, while a full range of electronics will build up a clear image of where the fish are hiding. This spacious boat also features a toilet, which is a much-needed thing when spending your day on the water.

All trips include the use of gear, tackle, and bait. All the necessary fishing licenses can be purchased on board.
