Get Hooked on Charter Fishing

Whether it’s pulling trophy Coho salmon, chinook salmon or lake trout from a boat on Lake Michigan or leisurely trying for panfish from an inland lake, Racine County is a terrific destination for fishing enthusiasts. Of the more than 300 miles of the Lake Michigan shoreline, the 25 miles in the Racine County area are a “sweet spot” for sport fishing that produces 38% of all fish caught on charter boats in the state of Wisconsin. A good way to try Lake Michigan fishing is through Fishing Charters of Racine, an association with 12 licensed charter captains.
