I have been fishing Lake Michigan since the age of twelve which gives me over 30

years of fishing experience out there!

I was born and raised in Racine Wisconsin.- I know the lake and the fish very well.

I am certified in medic 1st aid and cpr. I live right

here in Racine just 6 minutes from my 2nd home - The "Fishmeister II"

I really enjoy people and I try my hardest to make their fishing trip a pleasant and memorable one!

This past season has been one of the most enjoyable and action packed seasons that I can remember.

We've sent quite a few of our customers away with fish for the trophy room and truely enjoyed

taking each and everyone of our clients out for a great time on the water. It is always rewarding to

see the expressions on your faces after doing battle with a line burning salmon or a leaping steelhead.

My thanks to all that fished with me over the years and I hope to see all of you

back again as well as some new faces. I hope that you have a chance to experience the thrill of

fighting and landing a trophy sized trout or salmon with us this year!

    Why fish Racine?

    When it comes to Trout and Salmon Fishing, Racine remains one of the most talked about areas on Lake Michigan. Our catch ratios of fish produced per hour remain consistently one of the highest on Lake Michigan. Racine has an abundance of bottom structure such as reefs shoals and steep underwater drops and hills which hold and sustain a steady population of game fish. The possibility of landing a trophy size trout or salmon is always present. If you fish the lake from your own boat but want to see what we do differently, No problem. We are always happy to share advise on tackle and presentations and give you the chance to get involved in action. There are some real LUNKERS out there to be taken! I have fished Lake Michigan for over 30 years and have had very few disappointments. I hope to share in the enjoyment of fishing Lake Michigan with you.
