Mike has been fishing Lake Michigan for over 40 years starting when he was 5. He started fishing professionally in 1996 in Minnesota doing guided fishing trips and fishing tournaments for walleye and bass. Starting in 2011 he became a Lake Michigan salmon charter captain in Two Rivers and has been taking people out full time since. He enjoys watching people catch the biggest fish of their lives and getting kids and women out to enjoy the lake. His goal is to get customers as many fish as possible and to have an enjoyable time on the boat.
Blake grew up in the Two Rivers area. He had spent time small boat fishing on the lake as well as fishing salmon and trout off the pier heads. Blake also fishes walleyes and panfish around Wi. He has been the full time Lake Michigan salmon charter first mate for 2 years now and has proven to be a valuable asset on the boat. He is a single, 21 year old college graduate.
Brandon is another local kid a couple years out of high school. He is always fishing whether that be on ice, in a boat or from shore. He's probably done more different types of fishing in Wisconsin than anyone I know. Brandon has ran the most trips with me the last couple years. He also guides from shore on the rivers for salmon and trout.
Kevin is a good friend and has mated a couple years on the boat. He has many years of experience racing various things and fishing various species. He has his own boat at the marina and spends quite a bit of time on the water. In 2022 he retired and can be seen mating with me as well as other captains at the marina. Kevin has the distinction of netting the biggest salmon ever caught on my boat.
Last year was Brians first year helping me. Brian is a local that has fished the big lake for many years. Having recently retired he has even that much more time to fish himself and jump on with me. Hes is a great guy that you will for sure like spending time on the boat with.
Alex is another local kid that is a joy to have on the boat. Afternoons and weekends you can find him helping out. Hes a good angler, and an avid waterfowler.
Once you fish with Ted, you will never forget him. Ted tangles is a local teacher and great with the kids. He is always on the go 150% and has stories on top of stories. He has been part of WIFA for many years.
