About Your Trip

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!

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.

We vet our guides to make sure they are the best of the best. We want guides who not only catch fish, but show you a great time on the water, keep you safe, and give you a memorable experience with your group.

Once you've paid your deposit at checkout, we'll send you a QR code (like a mobile boarding pass). Just show your guide your QR code on the day of the trip, they'll scan it, the remaining balance will transfer automatically, and you'll be all set to go fishing. Just make sure you bring a cash tip for the guide!

In the case of inclement weather, our guides will make the call and we'll work with you to reschedule your trip or issue a full refund. Your safety is our top concern.
