Welcome to Sea Joy Charters
Thank you for visiting Sea Joy Charters, known for helping pioneer the charter fishing industry on Lake Michigan! I run a specialized charter boat operation located in beautiful Frankfort, Michigan (35 minutes from Traverse City). From my base, East Shore Marina, I have access to over 60 miles of Lake Michigan shoreline and direct access to Lake Michigan's most productive offshore fisheries. Sea Joy gets us safely on and off these big waters in no time and allows us to target the hottest fishing action available throughout the season.
Sea Joy specializes in near shore and offshore sport fishing excursions on Lake Michigan, which support's the best trout and salmon fishing to be found anywhere in the Lake Michigan region and is also home to Lake Michigan's biggest "King" salmon. I implement a variety of techniques depending on timing and location as well as the preferences of our clients. On most trips, trolling is the most practical way to target the trout and salmon in our waters.
I maintain a 31-foot Silverton that is designed for hardcore fishing and is capable of hunting down big fish in Lake Michigan's extremely clear waters. Every inch of the boat from bow to stern is immaculately maintained and customized to maximize our fishing efficiency and productivity while still providing exceptional comfort on the water. Sea Joy is inspected by the State of Michigan and approved for use as a charter boat. I carry on board all of the emergency and safety equipment required by the USCG.
Please contact me to learn more or to book your next Lake Michigan fishing trip. My trips are great for anglers of all ages and skill levels, and I am committed to exceeding your expectations!
