Get ready for an exciting day of Salmon fishing on Lake Michigan with Captain Fred! Lake Michigan is the third-largest of the Great Lakes and the fifth-largest lake in the world, with just over 22,000 square miles of surface area. It's loaded with fish, including famous sportfish species such as Steelhead, King Salmon, Coho Salmon, and Lake Trout—all of which you can target on this trip with Captain Fred. These fish are a blast to catch and are even better to cook up with friends and family! Fred captains a 31' Tiara sportfisher custom-built in Michigan. It can comfortably fit up to 6 fishermen, so call some buddies for this trip! She's powered by two 385-HP Crusader engines, so this boat will get you to the fish in a hurry. With outriggers, a GPS navigation system, and fishfinder, Fred's sportfisher is perfect for putting you on the fish and haulin' em' in! As an added bonus the onboard bathroom will keep in you in the action for the entirety of the trip. Fred provides you with all the rods and tackle you will need, but be sure to have your fishing license upon arrival. Be sure to dress accordingly with some rain gear, hat, and sunglasses so you can stay comfortable on the water. The only other thing you'll need is an ice chest to take home your fresh catch!
