What You Can Expect:

Manistee is the hottest fishing port anywhere. This is where the salmon and steelhead fishery for Lake Michigan originated more than 30 years ago. These fish were imported from the Pacific Coast to establish one of the world's largest recreational big game sport fishery. 

The captain and his first mate operate one of the most successful full-time charter services on the Great Lakes. Anglers from age 7-90 - beginners to expert you will go home with a wonderful memory of Lake Michigan aboard the "Decoy III" Fishing Charter!

June and mid-July  

We travel way-off shore to the fishing grounds anywhere from 10 to 25 miles, where the bottom of the lake plunges to nearly 1000 ft. This is where we find thermal bars or scum lines on the surface of the lake, the lake trout, steelhead, and salmon feed and school-up out here. The action can be hot and heavy, you can expect to have 10 to 20 fish on.

In mid-July, August

Our sights are set for trophy chinook salmon & coho. This is the only time of year we see the coho salmon because they are migrating to their spawning grounds. We see bigger fish , the biggest "kings" in Lake Michigan are known to be caught off the port of Manistee.

What To Expect Onboard:

The Decoy III is one of the most advanced fishing machines afloat. She is a 30' Phoenix Sportfisher built exclusively for fishing. She has a wide beam and open deck with plenty of fishing room for you and your party of up to six anglers.

"The Decoy III" is fully equipped with twin crusaders which mean fast to open water and fishing grounds so you will have more time to fish!
