Captain Dan grew up fishing on Lake Michigan with his father, and has carried his love of fishing throughout his life. He's a local business owner who enjoys meeting new people and sharing his passion with them. He's been happily married for over 20 years and have 3 great children. His son, Isaac, shares his passion for fishing and is also a Lake Michigan charter captain.
Take a trip out with Captain Dan and experience the great freshwater fishing that Lake Michigan has to offer! 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 fantastic sportfish species such as Steelhead, King Salmon (also known as Chinooks), Coho Salmon, and Lake Trout—all of which you can target on this trip with Captain Dan. On this trip, you'll primarily be trolling lines to attract big Salmon, which love to take fast-moving baits and lures. When these powerful fish hit the hook, you'll feel it! Salmon are great fighters that will really test your strength, stamina, and skills—so bring your A-game! You'll also have the opportunity to drop your lines down to hook up some massive Lake Trout, which prefer the deeper, colder parts of the Lake. In addition to their fighting abilities, all of these species are terrific table fare! Whatever you're hoping to catch, Captain Dan is an expert when it comes to finding, hooking, and fighting fish in these waters. You'll be fishing from the deck of his 33' Wellcraft sportfisher. She's a beautiful boat with all the equipment necessary for a great day of fishing, including twin Volvo engines and a cabin to keep you cool in the summer and warm in the fall. Your captain will bring everything you need for an ideal trip, including rods, reels, bait, and tackle. Dan and his crew will also clean and package all your keepers at the end of the trip. All you need to bring is a Michigan fishing license with the appropriate stamps, a cooler with snacks and drinks, proper clothing, sunscreen, and a smile! Get out there and enjoy the clear, cool waters of Lake Michigan with Captain Dan! Read More
Mate Jeremy and Captain Issac were an awesome team. My son, grandson and I caught 9 fish....7 kings and 2 rainbows. Biggest king was 41.5 inches long. Great trip!!
Even under not ideal conditions of rainy weather and choppy water, Captain Dan delivered an entertaining and enjoyable trip along with four nice fish for us to land in the locker.
This was an excellent investment. I took my four sons out this morning and we absolutely pounded them! Captain and first mate were professional and friendly. One of us scored a 29lb beast! We took 75-80lbs of fillets home…
Many memories were made. Good fishing,great time and we will be back.
Had a great trip. Crew worked really hard to get us into fish. The video they put together adds great value to the experience! We’ll enjoy it again and again.
