Been a first mate since I was 12 years old and have been fishing on Lake Michigan my whole life. My Dad was a Captain since I was 6 years old. I enjoy taking people out and giving them the enjoyment they deserve. My name is Captain Christopher Rugg and I operate High Life Sportfishing. I look forward to fishing with your family!
Kenosha, Wisconsin is a great place to live and fish. Beautiful Lake Michigan offers plenty of opportunity for us to catch some great fish. Hop aboard my 32foot fishing boat that provides everything we need for a great day on the water. The cabin has controlled temperature: A/C to cool or heat as needed. Your comfort and safety is our top priority at High Life Sport Fishing Charters.
The downriggers help for trolling Lake Michigan, or we can go bottom fishing. High Life Charters has all navigation tech needed for finding the fish, including Fishfinder and Radar. In the galley is a kitchen, bed, and toilet for your convenience. All safety equipment is checked by the United States Coast Guard. We are prepped and ready for your day at sea.
Captain Christopher Rugg and Crew will work hard to make sure your family has a safe and successful day fishing Lake Michigan. We go trolling or bottom fishing for Brown Trout, Lake Trout, Steelhead, King Salmon, and Coho Salmon. Even if you’ve never picked up a rod before, we can help you get the line screaming!
Make sure you bring a valid Wisconsin fishing license with all appropriate stamps. If you have any question about what you need to bring, ask Captain Christopher – I’m happy to help. All of your fishing gear, bait, lures, rods and reels are provided at no additional cost. Captain and Crew will also clean and package your catch at the end of the trip.
All ages are welcome to come fishing with Captain Christopher and High Life Sport Fishing. We can teach you everything you need to know about fishing Lake Michigan. Book today!
