Are you looking for a great Lake Michigan fishing experience? Do you enjoy being part of the action instead of just a spectator? If you like asking questions, learning new techniques and understanding why your captain makes the decisions he’s making, you’ll especially enjoy fishing with Nick. Nick’s had a rod in his hands his entire life and he’s fished professionally for the past fourteen years. He’s one of the industry’s most successful fish catching captains but the record he’s most proud of is his history of making friends of customers who return to fish with him year after year. Nick enjoys teaching but even if your idea of a fun trip is seeing Door County from the water, relaxing and just reeling in the fish…you’ll enjoy your trip with Nick.
Nick enjoys people and his enthusiasm shows in everything he does. He's captained a number of Lake Michigan salmon boats mostly out of Madelyn Marina in Sturgeon Bay which is conveniently located next to the Bayview Bridge and provides direct access to Lake Michigan. The marina is adjacent to The Lodge at Leathem Smith and many of our fishing guests stay there to take advantage of the convenient location and the amenities the offer including clean modern rooms, excellent dining, fisherman's breakfasts, bars and a heated swimming pool.
"I’ve first mated before so I know that chartering and guiding is not as easy as Nick makes it appear. Fishing with Nick is fun, exciting and relaxing at the same time. This last trip we caught nine fish. I brought friends and they especially appreciated that Nick explained not only what he was doing but why he was doing it. That really made them feel they were part of the action. I personally like that Nick treats clients with respect and he’s genuine enough to 'tell it like it is.'"
