Lake Michigan Charter Fishing Trips: Pricing 

You are not limited to exactly 5 hours. If you wish to extend your trip past 5 hours, each additional hour costs $75. The total price includes fish cleaning and bagging as well, so you don’t have to get your hands dirty. Silver King Charters provides you with a full day of fun for a very affordable rate, seven days a week.

Milwaukee Charter Fishing Adventures: Types of Fish

Lake Michigan offers the best freshwater fishing in the world. We fish for Chinook Salmon, Coho Salmon, Lake Trout, Rainbow Trout, and Brown Trout. Captain Kurt and Captain Willy are two of the most experienced captains in Milwaukee with a passion for fishing. They know exactly where to go depending on the season, weather, and the type of fish you are looking for! 

Passengers are only allowed to catch so many trout and salmon. Each passenger may catch up to 5 fish of any combination of salmon or trout. Lake Trout is the only exception—passengers may only catch 2 total.

The greatest benefits of your day on Lake Michigan, of course, are the priceless memories from a day of family fun —and pounds and pounds of fresh salmon ready to bake or fry straight out of the lake. Does anything taste better?

All equipment is provided and all charters are led by a captain and a first mate. WE WILL MAKE YOU A PRO, whether you have ZERO experience or travel the world winning fishing tournaments, we will make the experience fun and thrilling.
