Take a trip out with Captain Tim and experience the great freshwater fishing that Lake Michigan has to offer! Lake Michigan is the third-largest of the Great Lakes and the fifth-largest lake in the world, with just over 22,000 square miles of surface area. It's loaded with fish, including fantastic sportfish species such as Steelhead, King Salmon (also known as Chinooks), Coho Salmon, and Lake Trout—all of which you can target on this trip with Captain Tim....Read More
On this trip, you'll primarily be trolling lines to attract big Salmon and Steelhead, which love to take fast-moving baits and lures. When these powerful fish hit the hook, you'll feel it! Salmon are great fighters that will really test your strength, stamina, and skills—so bring your A-game! You'll also have the opportunity to drop your lines down to hook up some massive Lake Trout, which prefer the deeper, colder parts of the Lake. In addition to their fighting abilities, all of these species are terrific table fare! Whatever you're hoping to catch, Captain Tim is an expert when it comes to finding, hooking, and fighting fish in these waters.
You'll be fishing from the deck of his 33' Trojan sportfisher. She's a beautiful boat with all the equipment necessary for a great day of fishing, including twin Crusader 350-HP engines and a cabin to keep you cool in the summer and warm in the fall. Your captain will bring everything you need for an ideal trip, including rods, reels, bait, and tackle. Tim will also clean and package all your keepers at the end of the trip. All you need to bring is a Wisconsin 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 Tim!
Captain Tim has lived in Kenosha, WI, all his life, and there have only been a few days when he wasn't out on the lake. He's seen the town transform from a commercial and industrial hub into a recreational and tourist-friendly place, and has grown his charter business to match....Read More
For Captain Tim, fishing is a passion and a way of life, not just a job. He worked in construction for more than thirty years in order to make full-time chartering a possibility, and that trade-off is worth it whenever he sees a client catch a fish for the first time. Captain Tim writes, "It's more satisfying for to me watch a customer catch the fish that he's been wanting to catch than for me to bring it in myself. Sometimes a fish gets off the line, but we always get another one! My main goal on the boat is to make sure everyone has a good time and a positive experience."

Left harbor at 0600hrs after about almost a hr ride out (8.5miles). Tim our captain got the poles speedily into the water. My friend and I had the kids draw numbers to see what order they would take control of the pole when a fish was on. Well after only ...Read More 10 minutes trolling my friends youngest pulled in the 1st lake trout. Not only was he excited but his brother and my son were excited also. The boys each pulled in a lake trout within the first 45 min. Of trolling. Tim our captain, work with all of them with controlled patience. I say controlled because my son who is high functioning autistic can be quite difficult at times. Thanks Tim and I will be back in the spring.

It was an amazing time out on the water with him. He was very professional and knew exactly what he was doing. He guided us to the exactly the right place and got all the lines out nice and quick. Sometimes he couldn’t get the lines out fast enough before ...Read More another fish was biting. All in all, it was an amazing experience, and I would love to do it all again.

We had a great time catching lake trout and Salmon! Capitan Tim was quick to grab a rod and hand it to an eager angler with a fish on! He trusted his instincts to get us to where the fish were biting. Thank you for the memories the kids and ...Read More I will have for years!
