Although fishing is not an exact science and the cooperation of the fish is not guaranteed on any given day, the Reel Action crew always promises a great and safe adventure for every passenger.
“We not only work hard to catch fish every day, but also to ensure that our guests have a good time in the process,” Capt. Tom said. “Whether they are a seasoned sport-fishing veteran, or it’s their first time out on a boat, we try to make them feel comfortable about their day of fishing.”
The charter experience begins when the Reel Action leaves the dock. Passengers are educated about the tackle, fishing methods, angling techniques and what to expect during their fishing experience.
“I really enjoy being on the water and fishing, and most of my satisfaction comes from teaching others how to catch a fish,” Capt. Tom said. “At the end of the day, I want everyone to step off my boat a better angler.”
Capt. Tom and Reel Action Fishing Charters look forward to sharing a wealth of knowledge and good times with you, so book a charter today and learn firsthand why Lake Michigan is the best place to fish.
