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.

For the past 6 seasons (2008-current) a group of my fishing buddies has gotten together for a weekend and fished with Captain Don at least once each season. Our entire group had never been salmon fishing  in the Great Lakes. Our first charter was a completely new type of fishing for all of us. At the beginning we were snapping  lines, losing lures, tangling lines, and losing fish. Instead of getting upset with us, Capt. Don was patient and taught us what we did wrong. By the end of the first day we were reeling in double headers and filled the cooler with 9 big king salmon. Catching salmon is like no other fish...the fight is incredible and action packed.  Sometimes it can be a 20-039 minute battle. After the first day we all were addicted and have been fishing with Capt Don ever since. Capt. Don really is knowledgeable about the fish and their habits and where to find them at different temperatures and times of year. NEVER have we returned from a charter without salmon in the cooler.
