Charter Boats & Charter Fishing Captains

West Michigan is home to the finest charter captains anywhere, all eager to share their knowledge and experience with you. Exciting fishing and an abundance of salmon and trout make Ludington the number one port on Lake Michigan. Manistee and Pentwater are also excellent fishing ports. Various fishing tournaments take place during the busy summer months, with the chance to win big money with that big catch. You can book a charterboat for half day or full day--so bring your sunscreen, cooler, and favorite beverage, and leave the rest to your West Michigan charterboat captain!
