Fish the waters of the Manitou Passage for chinook and coho salmon...lake trout...brown trout...and steelhead!


These are Lake Michigan's most exciting and delicious fish. To catch them with regularity requires a reliable boat, sophisticated equipment, and most important, a captain with know-how.


Fishtown Charter has a very qualified and experienced captain in Capt. Jim Munoz, who founded the business in 1972.
