Prime Time Fishing Charters is owned and operated by Captain Jerry Walkowiak. Book your Sport Fishing Trip on Lake Michigan for salmon, steelhead, lake trout & brown trout today to experience a day you'll always remember! We depart from the port of Traverse City; a family friendly charter perfect for 6 anglers. Fishing in Northern Michigan is a must-do activity for everyone who loves the thrill of reeling in a monster fish!

Fish with Captain Jerry aboard this 31 ft. Sport craft; with its 11 ft. beam & spacious cockpit there is plenty of room to fight these fish! Fishing in Traverse City, good lake trout catches are common all season. From mid-August to early October the salmon fishing on the Grand Traverse Bays is fantastic! Charters are available for morning, afternoon & evening trips.

The vessel, “Prime Time”, is DNR inspected and has all the required USCG safety equipment for your trip. She’s equipped with modern electronics and a downrigger to assist with trolling. Onboard you’ll find a refrigerator to store your food and water, and a toilet if the need to take a break arises. The boat is also accessible for wheelchairs.

Captain Jerry and First Mate will work hard to guide your crew to a memorable and fun day of fishing. They have experience fishing Lake Michigan and Grand Traverse Bay and can get you on the fish. Our specialty is trolling, which is a technique of trailing bait behind our moving boat. Speed is a huge factor in trolling success, and the crew of Prime Time Fishing Charters have perfected this technique so that you will be reeling in some great catches!

Trips are either half day morning/afternoon or full day for six passengers. Captain Jerry will provide all the gear and tackle, and is happy to clean any harvested fish at the end of the trip. Your group will need to bring a Michigan fishing license for each angler, as well as any food or drinks for the day. You’re welcome to bring a small cooler onboard, and don’t forget a sealable bag for your personal items. We also recommend wearing warm clothing or rain gear, depending on the weather.

Traverse City, Michigan is a great place to live and visit. And the fishing is phenomenal! Come bend the rods with us at Prime Time Fishing Charters… book today!

Half Day Trip (AM)
My husband and I surprised our kids with a fishing trip, their first ever on the “big water” and a charter they had no idea until Captain Taylor called and said he was on the boat and ready for us and their reactions to hearing that was priceless!! Within an hour of our trip we had 3 hits, one laker in the boat & 2 salmon hits that didn’t hook. We had absolutely beautiful weather and the kids limited out on lakers and I also got 1. If you are looking for a fun time on the water this is the charter to go through Captain Taylor explained everything to the kids and answered any random questions my husband and I had, he was great and very well fitting for our family! We will definitely be using them again for another fun filled trip! Our trip was Sunday the 15th of Aug. it’s now the 17th and the kids are still talking about it and telling everyone :) Thank You again Prime Time Fishing Charters & Captain Taylor!

Half Day Trip (AM)
We had a fantastic time. There were six of us with a total weight of about 1500 lbs. We were told by friends and coworkers we would need a bigger boat for almost a ton of man but it worked out okay. We caught 14 fish including 2 Cogo, a King, 5 lakers and some Cisco. Taylor was our captain and did an excellent job finding fish, managing the tackle and driving the boat. Would highly recommend and will be booking with him again next year.

Full Day Trip (AM)
Booked a full day trip and the lake trout were biting so good we hit our max before we reached a half day. So we got our fish cleaned and fulfilled all our wishes in just a half day! This gave us more time to enjoy all the other things that Traverse City has to offer. Great captain (Jerry) and first mate (Taylor) very laid back and personable! Needless to say we had a blast!!! Would recommend 100% ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
