Active Adventure
From beginners to experts, thrill to the fight of Lake Michigan trout and salmon. Captain Mike will help you catch your fish of a lifetime on board the Brother Nature.
Typical Day
A typical day starts with a sunrise start at the harbor. Depending on the time of year the best fishing will be found in nearshore waters or as much as 15 miles offshore. The fishing is done by trolling multiple lines at a variety of depths using regular lines, lead core, copper and stainless steel wire. Downriggers and diving planers pull lines deep while planer boards spread the lines wide to cover more water quickly. Usually the first fish is caught before all the lines are set and it's not unusual to hook one last fighter as the final lines are being stowed for the trip back to the marina.

Age range, type of group
There are no age restrictions though youths under seven sometimes have a hard time handling the tackle without assistance. Due to the size of the fish, scaling gear down to youth sizes is impossible. I cater to families and small groups of friends.

Sleeping and meals
My website lists several area hotels that offer discount accommodations to my customers.

Policies & Restrictions
I don't smoke but smoking is permitted. Prudent use of adult beverages is permitted, as well.

Other Information
I trailer my boat to the lake each day and often switch from the Portage Marina to marinas located in Lake County,Indiana to take advantage of fish movements or better weather outlooks.
