Don Anderson

Member since May 2017 Waukegan, United States
Background
Boats have been part of my life since I was 10 years old and fishing began much earlier. Being a Lake Michigan fishing guide and a charter boat captain is the perfect combination of my two life long passions. I look forward to welcoming you aboard and showing the thrills of freshwater fishing on Lake Michigan.
Techniques
We fish for Salmon and Trout using a deep sea trolling method. All tackle and line is fresh water medium to heavy equipment. All bait is artificial, no live or cut bait is used. The boat is continually moving, even while fighting a fish.
