The Port of Ludington is rated the #1 salmon fishing port throughout Lake Michigan. In the past three decades, more charters have originated in Ludington and more salmon and trout have been caught here than in any other port in Michigan. Ludington is also the home to 40 of the finest charter captains anywhere, all eager to share their knowledge and experience with you. Safety and comfort are top priorities for charter boat fishing. All vessels are licensed by the Michigan DNR and all captains are licensed by the U.S. Coast Guard. Our captains will make your fishing experience one of the most enjoyable and memorable for years to come. Lake Michigan Fishing reports keep you up to speed on what fish are biting and where. Various fishing tournaments take place during the busy summer months, with the chance to win big money with that big catch.
