About Your Trip

If you've been dreaming of chasing big fish on Lake Michigan, then Captain Phil is the guide for you. With 20+ years of experience, and tons of knowledge about the Lake, he'll get you hooked up on monster Coho and King Salmon, Lake Trout, Brown Trout, and Steelhead!

You'll be trolling for these big fish on Shimano rods and reels, provided by the Captain. Salmon love to put up a fight, so come prepared! Not
only are these fish fun fighters, but they're great eating fish as well. Captain Phil is happy to clean your keepers for you, so bring a cooler!

Captain Phil's 31' Tiara sportfisher is outfitted with all the top trolling equipment, including Cannon downriggers and custom Cannon rod holders, a Hummingbird sonar fish finder, and GPS navigation. With the power of the twin 270-HP Crusader engines, you'll be able to get on the fish and start trolling in no time. Phil's boat also has an onboard bathroom and plenty of seating to keep you comfortable all day on the water.
Be sure to purchase a fishing license prior to your trip and bring along and food or drinks you may want while fishing. Soft soled shoes are preferred on the boat.

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

Each trip’s price is set by the guide and factors in all of their costs. A big determinant of cost is often the type of boat and associated fuel costs, but other guide costs include leases, marina / slip fees, bait costs, and the cost to provide and maintain all of the gear you’ll need on your trip.
Once you book the trip, we will connect you directly with the guide to go over any additional details. In the meantime, our team is always available to answer your questions via email, text, chat, or call!
