Captain Chad and his crew have been competing professionally since 2005, and can boast 16 first place finishes and multiple top-10 placements. There's no better captain on Lake Michigan, so if you're looking for an epic sportfishing trip, book with him and see what it's all about!

Balls Deep Charters Trips

If you've been looking for a premier sportfishing trip on Lake Michigan, you're in the right place. This epic Salmon and Trout trip with Captain Chad is ideal for any angler, whether you're aiming for a new personal best, hoping to fill your cooler with keepers, or all of the above! Many people don't know that the Great Lakes are home to some of the biggest, baddest freshwater sportfish in the USA. The stocks include Chinook (King) Salmon, Coho Salmon, Lake Trout, and Steelhead, all of which are powerful fighters and excellent table fare. You'll hunt these fish using a variety of baits and lures on trolling gear. All of the Salmonids—the family that includes Salmon and Trout—love to hit fast-moving targets, and when one of these fish takes the hook, you'll feel it! Salmon and Trout both have fast runs and big jumps, so these fights are nothing short of spectacular! Once your reel starts screaming, you better be ready! After you pull in a monster, you can store it in the icebox so it stays fresh during the remainder of your voyage. Back at the dock, Captain Chad will clean and bag your catch, so you can take home a delicious dinner. Captain Chad's 36’ Tiara has a spacious deck and twin Crusader engines with a total of 700 horsepower to get you out there fast. This vessel is built to cut smoothly through choppy lakewater, so you should be trolling with the utmost comfort. She also features a full kit of electronics, a comfortable cabin, live wells for bait, and coolers for your keepers. Captain Chad provides all the equipment needed for a successful day of fishing, including rods, reels, bait, and tackle. You should bring food and drinks so you don’t get worn-out, plus appropriate clothing, some sunglasses, and sunscreen. Other than that, Captain Chad has got you covered! Read More
