Kingfisher Charters


Silver Bay, MN

Head on to one of the Greatest Lakes of North America – Lake Michigan – with Kingfisher Charters. This fishing charter is operated by a professional angler, Captain Mark Mathieu. His over 30 years of experience guarantees your productive day out on the water.

Captain Mark accommodates everyone on his charter. Drawing from his wealth of knowledge, you won’t need any fishing experience, because he will help you know all the things you need for fishing! Even a seasoned pro can learn a thing or two from him!

Spend your day fishing aboard on a 55’ Viking Sportfish boat. She is crafted with first-class navigational electronics to take you swiftly on the hotspots of the area. Up to 6 anglers can join, and children can tag as well! Onboard you’ll find amenities you will definitely enjoy. This fishing vessel is just what you need to experience the most of Lake Michigan.

Lose yourself and find a variety of fish species that are treasured in Lake Michigan – Smallmouth Bass, Freshwater Drum, and Trouts, to name some! Kingfisher Charters offers multiple fishing trips in a day. Enjoy a whole or half-day on the waters with your family and friends. 

You will never go home empty-handed with Capt. Mark! He will provide your fishing gear – rods, reels, tackles, and baits! Bring your fishing license to start fishing. Please also bring snacks and drinks, and a cooler for your catch.

Lose yourself in Lake Michigan with Kingfisher Charters!
