Went fishing on Saturday, May 6, 2017

This was my first trip to Lake Michigan to fish, and man did we fish! I booked Twenty Four VII for 2 half days with Capt Frank. There was five of us, and none have ever been out on Lake Michigan. We were scheduled to go out Saturday morning and again Sunday morning. Capt Frank called me Friday and told me the Lake was too rough to go out on Saturday morning but he thought we could probably go Saturday afternoon. We met him at the marina around 1pm and he said it was up to us but several other boats had turned around because it was still rough. We are an adventurous group so we decide to go out. It was and rock’n and roll’n time that we all loved! Capt Frank took us out about 8 miles and sure enough we were catching Coho in no time. Sunday was a real thrill. We went out around 6am and by 8:30 we had all but a caught our limit! Capt Frank knows where the fish are and he gets you there. He works really hard to make your trip fun and successful. I highly recommend booking a trip with him. I know we certainly will be going out with him again.
