Welcome Aboard

Most Great Lakes charter fishing captains do it as a summer hobby. I sportfish for a living.

I've spent my life fishing the Lake Michigan shore off Milwaukee and have the experience to make sure you have a safe, fun and successful fishing charter. As a full-time charter captain, my entire reputation is built on your positive experience, so rest assured that I will give a full effort every trip. It's more than a hobby to me. It's my life.

Milwaukee is known for outstanding mixed bag catches including trophy sized salmon and trout. We start the season in early May fishing mostly for Coho Salmon, then change over to Chinook Salmon and Rainbow, Brown and Lake Trout from June through October. This allows us to have productive outings all season long.

Our 35 ft. Bertram sportfish boat "Crabby", has truly proven to be a terrific fishing boat. The large back deck is great for fighting fish and enjoying the sun. The boat is loaded with all the best amenities: Radar, Fish Finder, GPS Chart plotter, Electric Downriggers, Marine Radio, and a bathroom. You will also appreciate our onboard heat during those sometimes chilly great lakes boating days.

If you feel a bit crabby and need to go fishing, please give me a call at (239) 919-2626. I’d be happy to answer any questions you may have.

See you on the water,

Capt. Craig
