About Your Guide

I have been a tournament angler on Lake Michigan for over 35 years and a captain for over 20 years. It is exciting to show guests the fast-paced action of Lake Michigan Charter Fishing. We have been fishing the waters off Milwaukee and Racine, Wisconsin since the early 70s. It is always my goal to provide a safe, fun, enjoyable and of course a successful day on the water.

I started with an ice fishing trip in February. Have been on 2 morning and one afternoon charter since. Great boats great equipment great guys. Capt Ken and Capt Joe have put us on some great fish both size and quantity. I have been on charters before on smaller boats and have gotten sick these big boats make a difference

Ken and Joe were great. We were in the fish all afternoon. They knew right away which fish the kids would be able to get and which ones the adults had to get. Great job cleaning and bagging the fish at the end.
