Background
"I started fishing when I was 3 years old on a family farm pond in a small rowboat." With decades of experience, Captain Jody Blain will make sure you get on the fish. He loves everything about fishing, especially seeing the excitement on the faces of customers when they catch their first-ever fish. Capt. Jody is happy to teach everyone on board his boat how to fish, and can't wait to share his passion with you.
Techniques
I'm one of the only charters that jig for salmon in Ludington but also enjoy trolling and drift fishing. If you haven't ever caught a King on a jig its a trill you will never forget.
