Capt. Rich Tanner Kenosha, WI Incorporated Licensed Insured

We are Stellar Charters LLC, a full-time charter fishing service in business since 2001. We fish Lake Michigan waters off Kenosha, Wisconsin. Operating 3 sportfishing boats targeting 5 species of trout and salmon late April-mid October. Book your professional charter today!

Simply stated, Stellar Charters LLC has earned the reputation as the premier Lake Michigan fishing charter service. We fish 7 days a week when the waters are warm enough to have the boats in the water, guiding customers to fantastic memories every chance we get!

Captain Rich Tanner started Stellar Charters LLC in 2001 and offers safe, fun, and memorable trips out of Kenosha. We invite families with young kids (at least ten years old) to experience the thrill of fishing Lake Michigan. You don’t need any prior fishing experience, Captain Rich will teach you everything he knows.

Stellar Charters LLC operates 3 boats full time; each designed for serious fishing excursions and perfect for Lake Michigan waters. These vessels are equipped with U.S. Coast Guard certified safety equipment, private bathroom, electric downriggers, and twin 454 Crusader engines getting us to the fishing grounds quick and safe. Also onboard is the finest fishing tackle for Lake Michigan anglers, we’re sure to reel in some monster keepers!

We’ll be trolling with light tackle for Salmon, Trout, and Steelhead. Trolling is a technique that is very common to Lake Michigan fishing. It takes a lot of practice to get the speed of the boat just right. Lines are dragged behind the boat with lures attached, gaining the attention of nearby schools of fish. Captain Rich has been perfecting this technique for many years. He’s by far the best Captain on the Lake to get you hooked up on the fish.

Your group of six will fish for six hours, plenty of time to get a nice harvest. Six hours is our most popular package, as this gives your group lots of time to fish and time to get back to cook up your dinner. Your trip cost includes all rods, reels, bait, and tackle. Because we have three boats we are able to accommodate large groups. We will customize the trip coordinating three boats and have our own mini-tournament! So whether you’re in town for a family reunion, buddy fishing trip, or corporate event, let Stellar Charters LLC take care of you.

Bring your Wisconsin fishing license with Great Lakes Trout stamp, and let’s start bending those rods! Book today with Stellar Charters LLC.
