Our boys (13 and 9) really enjoyed going out on Lake Michigan to fish for salmon. They also have a memorable experience of surviving some rough seas going out and coming in due to south winds. Both are asking when they can go again. Captain Jeff was enjoyable to work with and we would recommend.

When we decided to book a charter fishing trip while we were in vacationing in Door County, WI, I looked - where else? - on TripAdvisor and found Fish Tales with great reviews, so I booked it. TripAdvisor reviewers did not let us down! However, the Fish Creek address is a bit misleading, as we left from Gordon's Lodge, outside... More

My husband and three teenagers met Captain Jeff EARLY (4:45 AM) for their first fishing adventure. Jeff was so patient and knowledgable. The time flew by. Everyone was involved and enjoyed themselves. Not a boring moment, even though they didn't catch anything until the last moment. After 3 hours of no fish, Jeff kept them out longer to ensure we...

I've always wanted to catch a fish that I had to take time to reel in and I finally did it! We did the 5am trip out of Gordon Lodge. The sunrise was magnificent in itself. The water was mostly calm and it was so peaceful out there on the lake. Captain Jeff was most educational and entertaining. I was... More

Today we had the pleasure of meeting Captain Jeff and being welcomed onto his boat! Everything about our experience with him was easy, fun and allowed us to make some wonderful memories for a life time! We will definitely be back!

Our trip began at five am meeting Capt Jeff in the parking lot at Gordon's Lodge. A talkative fellow we were constantly informed about the charter and fishing in an enjoyable way. About an hour into the trip we had a gigantic strike. I may add the only one of the day. Wouldn't you know that fish stripped the reel... More

My boyfriend and I have always wanted to do a salmon fishing charter and finally decided to pull the trigger and book it! Our original charter was with another Captain; however, he had to cancel on us last minute, leaving my boyfriend and I quite disappointed that we wouldn't be able to fish. I did a little research, and found... More

We had a great time fishing with Captain Jeff. We caught two huge salmon in only three hours. Jeff is incredibly knowledgeable about Lake Michigan fishing and was amazing with our children. He gave them jobs and involved them. He was patient with them, too. We all learned a lot and had fun. Many Door County charters were 4-5+ hours,... More

Had never been fishing on Lake Michigan before and booked two mornings. Had an excellent time, caught a lot of fish; more than we could take home. Jeff is really good with kids and teens. He got my daughter involved in navigating the boat. Whether your trip is with family or friends, I would highly recommend booking with Fish Tales.
