About

Great Lakes Fishing Charters LLC has been making memories on fishing charters and pleasure excursions for over twenty years. We operate a full time charter service with AM and PM charters available seven days a week (weather permitting). Our Captains are fully credentialed by the United States Coast Guard (USCG) as Merchant Marine Officers. Our Boats are fully inspected by The Michigan Department of Natural Resources (MDNR) and certified for use as Charter Boats.

If you haven’t fished with us before or are new to charter fishing, please take a moment and read the narrative: Fishing Philosophy, and Boats & Equipment. The commentary on these pages will give you an understanding of how we conduct ourselves, the comforts you will find aboard our boats, our commitment to safety and some of the reasons we have been in business for over twenty years and are still growing. We are glad to hear from you, so… feel free to give us a call with questions and when you are ready to schedule a charter.

Our Boats are custom outfitted with the equipment needed for the various types of fishing techniques used for the fish you want to catch. Both Boats, hooked and hooked again are inspected and certified by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (MDNR). The standard to which our boats are equipped exceeds USCG and MDNR requirements. Safety is always the first priority on the water.

Custom Charters are available to fit your needs from: fishing charters to pleasure excursions and site seeing trips, to inspections of marine structures and shorelines pre or post construction and memorials on the water. Please call to discuss Special Requests.
