Guided by Phil Retherford
Captain Phil's father was one of the first charter captains on Lake Huron. Phil started first mating for him around 12 years old, and he's been fishing professionally since then. He has over 30 years of experience, and will make sure you have a blast fishing the Great Lakes!
If you've been dreaming of chasing big fish on Lake Michigan, then Captain Phil is the guide for you. With 20+ years of experience, and tons of knowledge about the Lake, he'll get you hooked up on monster Coho and King Salmon, Lake Trout, Brown Trout, and Steelhead! You'll be trolling for these big fish on Shimano rods and reels, provided by the Captain. Salmon love to put up a fight, so come prepared! Not only are these fish fun fighters, but they're great eating fish as well. Captain Phil is happy to clean your keepers for you, so bring a cooler! Captain Phil's 31' Tiara sportfisher is outfitted with all the top trolling equipment, including Cannon downriggers and custom Cannon rod holders, a Hummingbird sonar fish finder, and GPS navigation. With the power of the twin 270-HP Crusader engines, you'll be able to get on the fish and start trolling in no time. Phil's boat also has an onboard bathroom and plenty of seating to keep you comfortable all day on the water. Be sure to purchase a fishing license prior to your trip and bring along and food or drinks you may want while fishing. Soft soled shoes are preferred on the boat. Read More
