Captain Tim is a full-time Lake Michigan charter boat captain. He has been fishing on Lake Michigan out of Port Washington, Wisconsin for over 35 years. He started out fishing with his Dad & Grandpa on their private family owned boat.  Because of his involvement in the Salmon fishery in Port Washington from such a young age, he was able to secure various First Mate positions on numerous Port Washington charter boats during his grade school and high school years.  Upon completing high school, he obtained his U.S. Coast Guard Captain’s License and started his own charter fishing service.  This is something Captain Tim has done for a long time, and he’s eager to share it with you.  You will be fishing with a very friendly and knowledgeable captain. As Captain Tim would say, “Do not be afraid to ask questions, and get involved.  This is your trip…not mine!!”  If you have any questions, or I can help you in any way, please call or email me.  Captain Tim HAS the background and experience to consistently find and catch fish.
