Raptor Charters

Captain Glen Buehner has been fishing since he’s been old enough to hold a pole. For over two decades Captain Glen has focused his fishing time in Ludington getting to know the waters and fishing patterns. His success can now be your success.

The goal of Raptor Charters  is to share the love of fishing the Great Lakes with as many people as possible. We want to instill the love of fishing in young people so they will work to preserve Michigan’s Great Lakes fisheries. The future of the fishery will depend on the up and coming generations.

So come aboard and experience Michigan's famous "Ludington Gold Coast" and catch that Trophy Trout or Salmon. With a little luck you can catch the "Lake Michigan Grand Slam". Lake Trout, Steelhead Trout, Brown Trout, Coho Salmon, King Salmon. Ludington is one of the few ports where this happens quite often.

We operate a fleet of three boats, two for Salmon and Trout April through September out of Ludington and one vessel out of Linwood Beach Marina on Saginaw Bay for Walleye May, June and part of July.  This diversification allows you to pick the type of species you would like to fish for and gives me the opportunity to fish for a variety of species and a broader knowlegde of fishing overall. 

**Spring Browns are back and from April 1st or earlier "Ice Out" thru May 15 I have a specail rate $400 (save $200).  Experience one of my favorite types of fishing---along the beach, with lighter line, we target Brown Trout but you never know what we will catch.  Most days multiple species are caught while experiencing the sands of the Gold Coast or the Bluffs along the beach, I Love It and you will also!!!


Whether you are looking to catch the fish of a lifetime like this big King caught in May or a big mess of great eating Walleye in Saginaw Bay, we can tailor a trip to your needs.  Be it family, friends, business or a bunch of kids we work hard to make your trip enjoyable.

Hope to hear from you soon

Capt Glen
