Shout out to Plumber’s Helper for one of the best days I’ve had in a long time! They know where to go to find fish and boy did we find and catch some big fish. We hit our limit within an hour of fishing and Capt. Jim was an amazing help and awesome guide it was a perfect day and amazing day. Thank you so much so such an amazing experience guys!

Captain Jim was absolutely amazing. He was great at communicating the day and week prior. He was fun and energetic but at the same time knowledgeable and professional. The boat itself is gorgeous. He made sure my husband and I had a great time fishing. We caught many fish. He even helped with a suggestion for brunch. Overall a 10/10 experience we will never forget! If you're thinking about it, do it!

If you’re looking for an incredible charter fishing experience, Captain Jim has you covered. He has over 30 years experience. Knows all the spots to catch fish so you will enjoy your experience. At one time we had three fish on at once! The boat is made for fishing and had plenty of room for our party of 6. We had an amazing morning trip! Captain Jim is very professional, great communication and just wants to make sure you have a memorable time. I know we sure did and will be back. Thank you Plumber’s Helper Charter!

Wonderful memories made, and fresh fish on the grill! Lake was rough earlier that day but they stayed in contact with us and eventually got us out for a perfect evening. Fish on minutes after the first pole was out. Top notch knowledge, punctuality, communication, and equipment. Captain Jim and Kim want you to succeed, and you’ll have a lot of fun along the way. Thank you for the experience, we look forward to our next trip!

Without a doubt, Capt Jim and Capt Kim run the finest charter fishing service on northern Lake Michigan. From our initial communications to the day of the trip and walking away with nearly 50 lbs of freshly cleaned fish every aspect of this adventure was professional and exceptional. We were a family party of 6, ranging from 11 to 66 and everybody got to reel in a big fish. Within a few minutes of putting the first line in the water we had our first large lake trout. We came home with 10 lake trout and one steelhead salmon. Their boat is perfect for charters and was comfortable and roomy, and is extremely well equipped. We are thoroughly pleased and will be recommending Plumber’s Helper Charters to everybody we know. Everybody in our party, including the kids, are very happy with our adventure.
