Why It Pays to Book a Charter

Charter fishing has become an increasingly popular activity. With the increase in charter fishing, it no longer matters if you are on vacation or just have some free time in your hometown. With Lake Michigan so close, why not seize the opportunity to take a day and get out on the water with an experienced charter fishing professional.

Now, your first question may be “what exactly is charter fishing?” Well, to answer that question in the most basic of terms, charter fishing is a fishing trip offered by professional guides which allows guests the best opportunity for catching fish, while not having to worry about operating a boat, locating a prime fishing spot or being in charge of all of the equipment, and ensuring all fishing needs are onboard (fishing rods, reels, bait, nets, etc).

Fishing charters have grown in popularity for a number of reasons, some of which include:

  • Much less expensive than owning a boat (think of the savings on gas alone!)
  • Great way to explore the water while on vacation (or stay-cation)
  • Fishing gear is provided (fishing rods, reels, bait, nets, etc)
  • Your fish are cleaned and packaged at the end of every fishing charter (less work for you!)
  • We, at Memory Makers Fishing Charters, have been in business for almost 30 years, and have been fishing longer than that!
  • Gain knowledge and experience from a USCG Licensed Captain who knows some of the best spots to catch fish on Lake Michigan

What’s Included In a Fishing Charter?

  • Owning a boat is expensive. You have to maintain it, which includes not only maintenance, but gas, storage (dry dock & marina fees), as well as any updates the boat may need to get it ready prior to season, this could include engine work, fish finder, batteries, etc. We have our boat ready for your fishing charter, all included!
  • There are many types of insurance and permits needed to ensure your trip is completely legal and safe. We have those covered!
  • Bait and fishing tackle (poles, lures, reels, nets, etc)
  • Lots of fish, smiles, and memories for a lifetime!

You will, however, need to make sure you have a fishing license. Remember prior to your charter!
