Our premier service offers fun-filled Lake Michigan salmon and trout fishing charters for all anglers. Join us aboard the Big Daddy, a 36 foot Tiara Yacht, designed for fishing and comfort. We are fully licensed and insured as a commercial charter boat in the state of Illinois.

Starting in the middle of June our charter service will relocate up to our northern port of Algoma, WI. Algoma is located on the base of the door county peninsula and is famed for having some of the largest king salmon on Lake Michigan. Our season starts there in June and will continue through the month of October. Our premier service offers fun-filled Lake Michigan salmon and trout fishing for all anglers.
