Join Captain Matt for an afternoon adventure chasing massive Sheephead! These Freshwater Drum make for great sportfish because they put up a great fight, can grow well above 20lbs, and can be mighty fine table fare as well. Don't be surprised if you hook into some Walleye on these trips either! Captain Matt likes to use a couple different techniques out on Lake Macatawa. Some days the Sheephead like the slow troll, other days they're enticed by the action of a deep diving crank bait, and other times they are bottom feasting on gobies where jigs can be most effective. Luckily, Captain Matt will be there to provide insight into what technique is fishing best!...Read More

Highly recommend! We had a blast on our three hour tour and caught over 20 fish with their help and expertise!

We had a big day of salmon fishing planned, but unfortunately mother nature and the fish had other plans. Capt. Tim came up with an alternate plan. And while they weren’t salmon, we still caught plenty of fish and had a great time on the water.

This experience was excellent. We went on one of the first warm days of the year and Tim and Scott gave us a couple options for our trip based on the weather and water temp so we would catch the most fish. This was a surprise gift for ...Read More my son’s 9th birthday. They were great with the kids, friendly, and the kids said it was “the best birthday ever”. Highly recommend.
