You can chase these fish using a variety of techniques and gear, from classic light tackle to fly gear and centerpins and more. Captain Zach has experience using all these types of gear and is happy to give you some advice no matter how you choose to fish. Your techniques and tackle will also vary depending on whether you're aiming for Smallies or Trout, so you can expect to mix things up quite a bit on this 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 Zach!

This fishing trip was very fun, Zach was very patient with me in the beginning because this was my first time fishing with this kind of setup and I wasn’t making ideal casts, but eventually I got the hang of it. I liked fishing with Zach because he is knowledgeable and ...Read More explains to you what you need to do clearly, was fun to talk to, and he also tries his best to make you feel comfortable. I caught enough steelheads to make my arm sore for 2 days thanks to him so I highly recommend this charter! Thanks Zach!
The day was great. Good equipment, personable friendly captain who has great knowledge of the area and fishing. We caught a good amount of fish and had a great time. I got this for Father’s Day as a gift and it was memorable and would absolutely recommend.
