Look for "Open Charters" dates


OPEN Charter
check out these dates to get a price for fishing for one person instead of the boat.

The Boat
The Rodfather
is a 2001 30' pursuit, fully equipped with a functional bathroom, and galley, safety equipment, life jackets, electronic sonar, radar,  and all the lures and rods needed. Her home port is  in Michigan City, Indiana.   The Rodfather is fully inspected by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources and is licensed to carry 6 passengers and 2 crewman on board

The Fish
    We love to fish, and sport fishing is our Passion. With The crew we fish in as many salmon tournaments as we can during the year.  Each trip is considered practice for the next tournament. Your crew will be taught to be a tournament team to set lines, fight and net fish as we prefish for the next Lake Michigan Tournament. We specialize in Sport fishing by trolling for Salmon, Steel head, Lake trout, Brown trout and Perch fishing out of the port of Michigan City, Indiana. 
    The Chinook salmon can average from 6 to 20 plus pounds with wall hangers approaching 30 lbs. these can be a real battle to land. 
    Lake trout are also common in the waters near Michigan city and can get as large as 30 lbs.  we fish near the bottom or on reefs for these native fish.
    Steel head roam the open waters and in June and July when the Skamania come to Michigan City they test your ability to land this tackle busting fish. 
    There is nothing else like it. But even if you're just looking for a relaxing boat ride on the lake we can do that as well.
