TANGLED MESS CHARTERS - Enjoy a day out on beautiful Lake Michigan fishing for trout and salmon.  We offer full or half day fishing trips.  You can fish on a 29 ft Wellcraft boat, fully equipped with all the fishing equipment you will need, as well as the needed electronics for fishing. 

We are located in the Holland area. Our boat is docked at Yacht Basin Marina in Holland MI on the North side of Lake Macatawa near Holland State Park. With only a short 10 minute ride from our dock we are on the big lake and fishing.
Our season starts in April and runs through October.

Going in after a great October Day out of Holland.



As a seasoned salmon fisherman I was interested in expanding my knowledge of the Steelhead fishery on Lake Michigan. I have fished and caught Steelhead in the past but I never targeted the species specifically.  After a short trip with Captain Don aboard the Tangled Mess he politely and openly shared his vast knowledge and techniques he uses to target the individual species. Never in my life have I had a more exciting trip out on the beautiful blue Lake Michigan. I was pleasantly surprised how much joining a skilled captain aboard his fully equipped charter boat would increase my chances of being a successful fisherman. Thank you Captain Don and I look forward to another trip soon.
