Captain TJ Willacker
I am a United States Coast Guard Licensed captain. I began salmon fishing with my father when I was 6 years old. The day I hooked my first salmon was the day my obsession with Great Lakes salmon fishing began. There is absolutely NO PLACE ON EARTH I would rather be than fishing for trout and salmon on Lake Michigan. It is a true passion for me in all aspects.
I have been blessed to have fished from Michigan City Indiana, all the way north to Frankfort, Michigan, and pretty much every port in between. At 28 years old, I am one of the younger captain’s in the area, but with 20 years of experience on the Great Lakes, and over 15 years of charter fishing experience prior to starting my own business, my number one goal is to make your Lake Michigan fishing charter the best I can possibly make it.
