Our equipment

2013 Kiwanis Super Derby

In 2004 we purchased a 1989 28.5' Baha Cruiser.  For those of you that haven't had the pleasure to fishing on our old boat.  Here is a picture of the old Shur-Katch.  We had many good memories on that boat.

A family-owned and operated business since 2004.  The Kakes brothers grew up on Lake Michigan working on local fishing charters since 1988.  We take pride in sharing our passion of fishing, so our guests can enjoy the great expirance Lake Michigan has to offer.


Whether you're looking for morning or afternoon excursion, a vacation or something special like a family reunion, we've got the gear and expertise to help you enjoy the great outdoors.
