Get with a charter fishing crew. The fishing crews out there know each other and share their experiences with another to make sure they know where to go to catch your targeted species of fish. They take care of everything to make sure you have an enjoyable day of fishing on the Big water. It is well worth the price...because it is so much fun!

If you come from fishing smaller lakes, be prepared for a lot more chop out on Lake Michigan. We had 3-4 ft so it wasn’t horrible. But it took some getting used to.
