Lake Michigan Charters: An avid angler smiles while holding a massive salmon.

If you consider yourself an avid angler, you probably know why Lake Michigan charter fishing is a bucket list item for some. But even if you’ve never cast a line in your life, you may be intrigued by the idea of going out on a fishing adventure with a professional guide. That’s the beauty of charter fishing; you don’t have to be a seasoned fisherman or woman to enjoy it. And who knows, you may discover a new hobby. Today, we’ll share a list of the best to help you find the right fishing charter for you and your crew when you stay with Unsalted Vacations.

Unsalted Spotlight: On The Fly Charters

Before we start, we want to share a Lake Michigan fishing charter that stood out to us as we were creating our list: On The Fly Charters in Grand Haven. Professional fisherman Chris Bunda has been tournament fishing along the Lake Michigan coast for over 15 years. What once was a passion has evolved into a lifelong hobby and a career for Captain Chris. His love for the lake has translated into wildly successful outings for him and his guests, thanks partially to his 31’ Tiara Express Cruiser that can seat up to six anglers. 

With full-featured navigation electronics and guidance from one of the best in the business, you’ll be well on your way to reeling in a diverse range of fish, including highly-sought salmonids like coho and chinook salmon, and rainbow, lake, and brown trout. All you need is a fishing license, snacks, drinks, and a cooler to store freshly caught fish, which Captain Christ will gladly fillet for you for free!
