Background
I have been a tournament angler on Lake Michigan for over 35 years and a captain for over 20 years. It is exciting to show guests the fast-paced action of Lake Michigan Charter Fishing. We have been fishing the waters off Milwaukee and Racine, Wisconsin since the early 70s. It is always my goal to provide a safe, fun, enjoyable and of course a successful day on the water.
