We target Salmon, Steelhead, Lake Trout, Whitefish and Herring. We regularly see extremely high catch rates and invite you to come join us for a day of catching and not just a boat ride. Captain Bob Hinds is owner and operator of Central Coast Angling; a native of Northern Michigan he has fished Lake Michigan and surrounding waters since he was a boy. His passion for lake fishing started when he was young and he now has a full-time job doing what he loves. When he’s not chartering customers, Captain Bob is spending time with his family in the great outdoors… usually fishing together as a family! Your family is invited to join Central Coast Angling aboard our 2018 Robala Cayman 226 powered by a Yamaha 250HP VMAX SHO. The beautiful fishing vessel gets us to the best fishing spots quickly and safely, and we’ll fish as long as we can with Minnkota trolling motors getting us from spot to spot with ease. Captain Bob uses Humminbird sonar and GPS navigation to keep your group on top of the fish and has no trouble getting you hooked up on a great catch! Your family will ride in comfort, have plenty of room for gear and seating, and there is access to onboard restroom if required. Come aboard for a fun, safe, and exciting day of fishing in Northern Michigan!

Captain Bob will guide you to the fish and give instructions for techniques, helping you to reel in some nice keepers.
