Book Your Trip Now Aboard the Zamboozee

Captain Kenny is reminding you that the Zamboozee is ready and it’s time to book your charter for the upcom-ing salmon, trout, and perch season. When you charter on the Zamboozee, you are go-ing to receive a memorable experience, great hospitality, and fish on one of the clean-est boats on the lake. It comes equipped with every-thing you need to have a great fishing charter.

This season’s tip:
Captain Kenny recommends that you should book your charter NOW. Because of the mild winter the Coho Salmon Run will be here as early as mid April with the best fishing (Limits) the first few weeks of May. You can look forward to great catches of Coho Salmon, Brown Trout with a mixed bag of Rainbows and Kings. June and July offers Kings, Coho’s, Rainbows and Trout. July, August and September offers a mixed bag of all species.

I highly recommend that you book the morning charter arriving 20 min prior to our departure time. The Afternoon charter is also good in April, May and June. Fishing starts before sunrise– that’s when the fish bite the best! In addition, the views on the lake as the sun is coming over the horizon are breathtaking. Don’t miss your opportunity to catch all the excitement of the early bite. Please call. These Prime dates go FAST

ZAMBOOZEE “Fish-On” 2023

Fishing aboard the Zamboozee can be enjoyed by all ages. Corporate entertaining is a great way to get together with clients and associates to bond for a day of fun on the lake. For groups that wish to entertain more than 6 people (Coast Guard maximum per boat) we can make arrangements with other top charter boats. We can even add a little extra fun and create a type of fishing tournament between multi-boat charters. Taking a charter is also a great way to create family memories.

Get the family together and spend the day out on the lake. Children are al-ways welcome as well as accommodations for handicapped individuals. Don’t forget birthdays, graduations, weddings, and bachelor parties are also ideal get-togethers on the boat. We also cater to the ladies-only char-ter. Just bring your sun tan lotion and a strong arm to reel in the fish. The captain will take care of all the “dirty” work. What ever the occasion, you are sure to have an awesome day out on Lake Michigan!
