Our Mission

Waking up before first light, getting underway in the cool, crisp, fresh air, seeing a truly amazing sunrise, hearing the first few clicks of a drag, and then…Bam! Fish on! Seeing the smiles begin as memories are made—that’s what we live for!


We are a very close group of guys--some would even say brothers from a different bloodline--who have a passion for sharing our love of the outdoors with others.


All of our guys and gals live what most would call a dream, from working at a Pro Shop to making a living working in the outdoors doing the things we all love. We want to share that dream with as many others as possible. Outdoorsmen Charters strives to get families and friends out on Lake Michigan for an eventful day of fishing.

We go that extra mile to make sure your family and friends feel right at home on our boat. We have light snacks and drinks available in case you forget to bring your favorite snacks along. We love to share information and educate our customers on the knowledge we have picked up in all of our years of living this dream.


One of the little-known secrets of this great state of ours is that we have a world-class fishery at our awesome coastline here in Michigan: King Salmon, Coho Salmon, Steelhead, Brown Trout, Lake Trout, and many more species.


Our goal is to give our customers a reason to want to come back to see us, build customer loyalty, and foster many friendships along the way.

We’re very proud to be Americans and support our troops, police, and fire departments every chance we can!
