Went fishing on Saturday, October 22, 2016

We were their last charter of the year. Water temp was all over. They did their best to get us into fish and we did ok. The crew are the the owners. Enjoyed our time and will rebook for next year.

Went fishing on Monday, September 5, 2016

Captain Jim and his wife run a great charter.  Don’t be alarmed by the location.  The boat docks at a boat yard and Jim comes out and unlocks the gate and you drive to the boat.  Translated…its not a yacht harbor where other charters would be.  You motor out and are fishing right out of the harbor.  While we only caught one fish, it was an experience to see Milwaukee from the water.  I would recommend this charter in a heartbeat.

There were small communication issues with fishingbooker.com regarding remaining payment options to Captain, but after speaking to Captain Jim, everything was fine.  I am so glad we made this charter.

Went fishing on Thursday, July 7, 2016

Capt. Jim extremely knowledgeable taking time to explain the different types of equipment and techniques he would use on our fishing trip. We were very quickly catching fish. Overall extremely fantastic outting. Would recommend Blue Max Charters - Phenomenal crew, very clean boat and great value for charter price.
