Don't go expecting to catch anything. It was my 1st time and we only had a trout bite but we lost it. The flies and other biting insects were relentless since there was no breeze. It ended up being just a very expensive boat ride. I will not be charter fishing again.

There's a dedicated pier for charter fishing at the Chinook pier, but I would recommend booking well in advance. Parking can be a pain(especially if it's a nice beach day), but even if you cannot find parking at the pier, the parking around the area makes for a short walk through beautiful downtown Grand Haven.

Be prepared to not catch fish you can eat. Lots of Drum fish which are not good to eat.

I highly recommend captain Sam. He will put you on the fish and he is a pleasure to fish with.

Try to book morning chater over afternoon. Both are good but mornings seem more productive. Either trip you will have a great time.

It's a great experience with great fishing. Especially if you can book with Captain Jarrod on Last Call Charter Fishing!

Timing seemed perfect, today was Friday May 13. According to Captain Dana, around this time, is your best chance of catching big fish, and he was right.

Well the swells on the water are big. If you get sea sick well wear wrist bands for motion sickness. But sunscreen and have a great time. Get ready to burn up your arms reeling in a big one..

There are so many different charters it felt overwhelming. I definitely recommend researching and taking your time to choose. The right one will more than likely be in Grand Haven!

Fish with another company . Book with another company and don't always believe the reviews you read. Don't book any charters until end of may apparently the water is too cold and fish aren't biting till then so you're wasting money, but the captain won't tell you this till you've already gone out on dangerous waters and caught nothing.

Water was very choppy on the day we were out there, other than that weather was perfect

While we had a great trip in the evening, you would likely get more fish on a morning trip.

It was great! I’d do it again. But heard May is a better month for catching fish.

May might be the best month to catch fish. But we caught an average catch and were satisfied.

I recommend letting the captain know what you're fishing for and let him put you on the fish

Fishing is fantastic. Go to the Marina and talk to a few captains. I recommend Last Call charters.

Try to go on a cool day. Cooler water is better for fishing. Love them King Salmon.

A map of the pier area would be helpful. The address alone doesn't get you right to the boat.
