I booked Captain Jack based on Trip Advisor reviews and he did not disappoint! We reached our limit on Lake Trout within 3 hours. He was a one man show, setting up all of the lines and driving around to find the best locations. My dad has been on several charters and said "I have never seen someone work so... More

I have been out fishing with Jack Duffy 10 times in my life and there is not a better captain out there. Jack always seems to know where the fish are hiding even when none of the other boats can find them. I have never seen a charter captain work harder to make sure his clients catch fish and have...

My father and friends have fished with Captain Jack since 2009 and would not look elsewhere for fishing in Northern Michigan. Our most recent trip in July 2012 was amazing and we caught our limit of salmon in a couple hours. Captain Jack is a man who exudes common sense and conducts his charters in a safe and courteous manner... More

We will be repeat customers for several years to... More

I have chartered Whitecap Charters run by Jack Duffy for several trips annually for the past 15 or more years. Jack runs a first class operation in every way. His boat is very comfortable and has all the latest equipment to catch salmon, steelhead and lake trout. Jack is a most congenial and engaging Captain with a myriad of great... More

Jack was so nice. He made sure that we went home with at least a couple of fish. I've gone on this charter a couple of times and each time we always caught a lot of fish and had so much fun.

We have fished with Jack several times a year for 30 years. We take clients, business associates and family on our trips. Jack is extremely hard working, one of the most experienced captians on Lake Michigan and keeps his equipment in top shape. Jack takes the success of his customers very seriously. You can expect some quick instructions and some... More
