Notes   from  the  Captain

Welcome   Aboard !

I've been fishing for Salmon and Steelhead since the late '70's. I became a Charter Captain in 1985, and opened a Great Lakes Fishing Tackle Shop in Ludington in  1996. I've sold the business and just focus on fishing and showing people a good time out on the Lake, more.

I enjoy seeing people , and in particular young people reel in their first big fish. Often almost 1/2 there size. That's why Kids 16 and under go for FREE.

I have all  new6.gif (535 bytes)tackle this season. The latest and greatest.   My rods and reels are  logo-diawa.gif (4410 bytes)  and shimano.GIF (2152 bytes). I am a field tester for;
