Trout and Salmon Tournaments on Lake Michigan

Lake Michigan Fishing Charters - Milwaukee and Racine: Professional - Experienced - Licensed

About Our Lake Michigan Charter Fishing Captains

Fully licensed by the United States Coast Guard and the State of Wisconsin.

Fully insured for commercial operation.

We have over 50 combined years boating and fishing experience on Lake Michigan. Captain Kurt Pokrandt started fishing salmon when he was 7 years old in 1977 casting lures from the shores of Lake Michigan. In 1985 he had saved up for his first boat to fish Lake Michigan and has been trolling for salmon ever since. Captain Willy Pokrandt was not far behind his brother, winning his first boat in the shore fishing division of Salmon-A-Rama. Captain's Kurt, Willy and the crew of Silver King Charters have a true passion for salmon fishing and this will show when you are Milwaukee charter fishing or Racine charter fishing for salmon and trout aboard the Silver King. The captain's and crew will always work to continually adjust to the salmon during a trip and put fish in the boat. Remember NO FISH - NO PAY is Silver Kings policy. All first mates have many years experience fishing on Lake Michigan and are as driven as the Captain's. Having an experienced first mate will make your charter fishing trip enjoyable and lead to more salmon and trout caught. The crew will fish tournaments aboard the Silver King or they have their own boats they fish from.

Milwaukee Charter Fishing Boat

You will fish aboard the classic 28 foot Tiara Open, which is designed for the big waters of Lake Michigan. This boat is powered by reliable twin Crusader inboards. Both engines where replaced with brand new fuel injected Crusaders. One in 2017 and the other in 2018. Each has 320 horsepower, which makes this boat over powered to get through conditions on Lake Michigan and still allows the Silver King to keep fuel cost down, so when fuel prices rise during the summer the price you pay will not. This boat is the ultimate fishing weapon for trolling Lake Michigan salmon and trout. The 10 foot 6 inch beam, built in keel on the hull and placement of the engines gives this boat excellent stability while trolling. The Tiara Open is a spacious boat and has a fully enclosed head. This boat is fully rigged with the most up to date fishing, electronic and safety equipment. There is no better designed boat for targeting Lake Michigan salmon period.
