Manhardt Charters

Capt. Robert Manhardt Milwaukee, WI Incorporated Licensed Insured

Experience Lake Michigan in Wisconsin like never before with Manhardt Charters. At the helm is Captain Robert, who has been fishing these waters for many years, and knows exactly where to go to make each fishing trip an adventure.

Climb aboard the 32 foot Wellcraft offshore sportfishing boat, with two powerful 360 HP Mercruiser engines that have 30 knots cruising speeds. The speedy vessel will take you and your party of six to the fishing grounds quickly and comfortably. Onboard you will find a bed, kitchen (with refrigerator), and bathroom with shower and toilet. All Safety Equipment is USCG inspected and certified, including VHF Radio, Flares, Fire Extinguishers, and Life Jackets. We also have a CPR-Trained Crew.

Lake Michigan is over 22,404 square miles and is the second largest of the Five Great Lakes of North America – which means there is plenty of both Trout and Salmon, ranging from Steelhead, Brown Trout, and Coho and Chinook Salmon. Both fish are excellent to eat and have good game qualities, too. It’s a “Work Hard, Play Hard” kind of world: you’ll get a great workout catching them, and a delicious dinner when you get back home.

Your party of 6 can enjoy a nice 5-hour fishing trip in Lake Michigan fishing for trout or salmon. Trip prices include the bait, lures, and equipment (rods and reels). We’ll also clean and fillet whatever you reel in – so get ready for a tasty dinner! You will need to make sure you have your fishing license (CANNOT be purchased on the boat – must be purchased before the trip. Each person fishing is required to have a valid license). Be sure to also have you Great Lake Salmon/Trout Stamp. Bring along soft-soled shoes, sunglasses, sunscreen, camera, and extra clothing (it tends to be much cooler out in the middle of the lake). You may bring food and drinks onboard, but NO GLASS and NO BANANAS.

Lake fishing in the beautiful Lake Michigan is truly an experience of a lifetime. Book today with Manhardt Charters and Captain Rob. He will get you on the fish!!
