"First, to everyone that I took sport fishing this summer, Thank You! We had a fantastic season filled with great fishing, good stories, and wonderful people. It's my job to find the fish and show everyone a great Salmon Charter experience, and because of the people I meet, it is the best job in the world!"

Grand Haven Charter Fishing

We offer Charters out of the Port of Grand Haven for King Salmon, Coho, Lake Trout, Steelhead Brown Trout, and also do afternoon boat excursion for any one that would like to take a relaxing ride down the Grand River out into Lake Michigan.

Captain Mike offers charters for 1-6 people on Third Wish, a 31 foot Tiara. The trips are fun and personable …and the fishing is great!

We supply all the fishing equipment. We also clean and package your fish. You will need a MICHIGAN ALL SPECIES FISHING LICENSE. You can buy your fishing license at a store near you or online through the DNR.

Please bring food and drinks in a soft sided cooler. Wear non-maring, non-skid shoes. No spray-on suntan lotion. No metal cups or containers.
