Guided by Chris Rugg
Captain Chris got his start as a mate at 12 years old, and has been fishing on Lake Michigan his whole life. His Dad was also a lifelong fisherman, and Captain Chris is proud to continue the tradition. He loves taking people out showing them a fun trip! Beautiful Lake Michigan offers plenty of opportunity for you to catch some great fish. Book a trip to enjoy all that it has to offer!
Take a trip with Captain Chris and experience the great 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 famous sportfish species such as King Salmon, Coho Salmon, and Lake Trout—all of which you can target on this trip with Captain Chris. On this trip, you'll primarily be trolling lines to attract big Salmon, which love to hit fast-moving baits and lures. When these powerful fish take the hook, you'll feel it! Once that rod is in your hands, bring your A-game, because these fish fight hard. You'll also have the opportunity to drop your lines deeper to hook up some massive Lake Trout, which prefer the deeper, colder parts of the Lake. Whatever you're hoping to catch, Captain Chris is an expert in finding, hooking, and fighting fish in these waters. You'll be fishing from the deck of his 32' Coastal WellCraft sportfisher. She's a beautiful boat with all the equipment necessary for a great day of fishing, including a climate-controlled 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. Chris and his crew will also clean and package all your keepers at the end of the trip. All you need to bring is a Wisconsin 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 Chris! Read More
