Manhardt Charters Lake Michigan Trips

If you've been looking for another great way to enjoy Lake Michigan in the summer, this trip with Captain Rob is for you! 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. These fish are a blast to catch and are even better to cook up with friends and family! Rob captains a 32' Wellcraft sportfisher. She can comfortably fit up to 6 fishermen, so call some buddies for this trip! She's powered by twin 385-HP Mercruiser engines, so you'll be on the fish in a hurry. With trolling equipment, a GPS navigation system, and fishfinder, Rob's sportfisher is perfect for hooking big 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. Captain Rob 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!

We took our 2 teenagers on a trip with Captain Rob. Fishing had been really slow. Rob gave us the option of canceling. We wanted to go anyway. We caught 3 fish on our 3 hour charter and we’re happy with that. We had a great time. Captain Rob was great. The time spent on the boat was awesome. It was a beautiful day!

Capt Rob is a very knowledgeable mariner and fishing guide, highly recommend him, and thats coming from someone who has fished Salmon, Halibut etc in Alaska and British Columbia for over 14 years.. Rob knows his area and knows where the fish are, if you don’t get any fish it’s not because of capt Rob or his boat. You should look no further when looking for a great fishing experience on Lake Michigan

I would greatly recommend this Charter! Caption Rob is a true “Water Rat”. I mean that in the most respectful way. He lives the Big Lake. He’s a very personable guy with a very nice boat. You can’t go wrong with Captain Rob.
