Damn Good

If you've been looking for some truly epic sportfishing on Lake Michigan, then this trip has your name on it! For some reason, many people don't know about the fantastic fishing that the Great Lakes have to offer—leaving more big fish for you. Captain Shane has decades of experience fishing out of Kenosha, WI, and will definitely put you on the fish and make sure you have a blast. On this trip, you'll be chasing big King Salmon, Cohos, and Lake Trout on trolling gear. These fish love to whack fast-moving baits and lures, and you can expect wild fights once a trophy fish is on the line. Captain Shane is full of expert advice and tips to improve your fishing, so you'll leave this trip a better angler than when you went out. He's also happy to clean and bag your keepers once you return to the dock, so you can take home a cooler's worth of excellent table fare. Salmon and Trout are delicious eating fish, whether you opt to toss them on the grill, sear them on the stovetop, or even try them fresh as sushi. Ask Captain Shane for his favorite recipes! You'll be fishing aboard his 33' Tiara sportfisher, a beautiful and comfortable boat that's ideal for fishing the lake. She sports twin Crusader engines with a total of 700 horsepower, and is kitted out with electronics and gear to maximize your fishing. She also features a full cabin in case of inclement weather, or just to keep you out of the sun. This vessel is truly a fishing machine, and has everything you need for an awesome trip. Captain Shane will supply all the necessary gear, including rods, reels, bait, and tackle. The only things you need to bring are some sunscreen, weather-appropriate clothing, and a pair of sunglasses to cut the glare. Captain Shane is here to catch fish, and sometimes that requires going further off shore. If you opt to go out further, there may be an additional fuel surcharge. Read More

Absolutely fantastic trip with Shane. He explained everything we needed to know and set expectations before the trip and was easy to find when we got there. Super knowledgable, patient, and fun, his boat was clean and he was extremely efficient. Learned a lot, got on some major trout and salmon action, and had a blast. Looking forward to the next time we can get out there with him!

Got this trip last minute after our other captain canceled our trip. Rough water with 3-5 foot waves was interesting but after we got to deep water, we killed it. Shane knows his stuff and I would highly recommend him as a guide.

This was a family trip with myself and my boys. Capt Shane was fantastic to work with from booking the trip to cleaning our fish. He was very professional and communicated with us to ensure he tailored our trip to our satisfaction. We caught an exceptional number of fish throughout the trip as a result of Captian working hard to make sure we were fishing the hot spots and with the tackle the fish were bitting that day. Overall great trip that we all agreed won’t be our last with Shane.

This was our first time chartering a fishing boat and it was a great experience working with Captain Shane. Prior to the trip he was very responsive. He did a great job of communicating and answering all our questions prior to the trip. Once we were on the boat, he was all business. He got us out in the water, got things set up and within five minutes we had fish biting. He has a ton of experience, loves what he does and really works hard to ensure your you and your group has an awesome experience. I HIGHLY recommend Captain Shane!
