5 of us boarded by 430 this morning for our private family charter. A few hours later, we had 12 fish - pink and king salmon and Lake trout. One was a 37” long 20 pound Lake trout. Captain Tony knows his stuff, and his first mate, Colby, was great too.

Had an awesome day on the lake with Captain Tony. Great boat, great set up, and he really knows how to track the fish. Great experience all around and can't wait to be back out with Tony again!

WOW!!!! Another great day on the lake with Captain Tony!!! Brought my nephew and his 2 friends that have never fished for salmon. I enjoyed sitting back and watching the boys bring in the haul. (I did get the last fish though)
Limited out in less than 3 hours. Captain Tony and his first mate Colby are a class act. Attentive, informative and made the trip a great memory for all of us.
Looking forward the next years trip!!!

Booked a trip for my husband as he loves to go fishing and has always talked about doing an off shore fishing trip. Captain Tony did not let us down! I highly recommend him to everyone! Captain Tony had a great personality and was so friendly and kind the whole trip. Kept us laughing and taught my husband so much and never hesitated to answer any of his questions. We went out at 5am and had hit our limit by 8am! We took home an amazing amount of salmon filet right on the boat! So fresh and delicious! I am not usually fond of fishing but always stick it out for my husbands sake. I will say that I had a blast as did he and we will for sure be back to go fishing with Capt. Tony!!!

I have been deep sea fishing and fishing with different charters on Lake Michigan for a number of years. Tony had us catching fish in the first 30 minutes, and throughout the trip, even in the cold and rain, we came close to limiting out, we had a great experience, Tony was on the ball and very professional, we will use him again for sure!!

We limited out on our morning Charter with Captain Tony. We headed out to 200' and had 2-3 on soon after the lines were set. Tony runs a tight ship and keeps it fun.

This is our 3rd year fishing with Captain Tony at Diamond Ghost Charters. LIMITED again ! Coho, Rainbows, and the wife caught a 17 lb. KING SALMON.

Great day on the lake with some exciting action. If you like to fish, Captain Tony's your man!

He even picked up a first mate this year. Colby, great kid, and good on the net!

The Diamond Ghost is a nice fishing vessel, and the Captain keeps it immaculate.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND a charter with Captain Tony.
