See what some of our surveys say about us:

"The bachelor party on board the ENCORE and the two other boats arranged by Ed was a big hit with the wedding party. Everyone had a great time, landed fish and saw a spectacular sunset. It was hot and sunny but with the hard top and glass windows that were easy to open we kept nice and cool. PS The designated drivers got everyone home."

Andy Jackson, Plymouth Michigan


"I've Chartered boats all over the world and my experience in Ludington with the team from Ludington Charter Service was as good as any I've ever had. We had non-stop action all morning and continued to take fish until it was time to pull lines and head for port"

Rod Schultz, Chicago Illinois


"Whenever friends and family come over to visit from Germany I try to plan a fishing trip to Ludington. June, July, August it doesn't matter Captain Ed always finds the fish and we have a great time. We're HOOKED"

Markus Deusing, Indianapolis Indiana (Hamburg Germany)


"Having Chartered boats all over the US and Mexico I recommend Ludington Charter Service the boat is well maintained, very clean, with top of the line equipment. Plus Ludington is an outstanding family vacation area, some of the best beaches in the US and lots of activities for Mom and Kids while Dad FISHED!"

John Sullivan, New York City New York


"Took my twin daughters fishing with Captain Ed and we had a fantastic time. He was great with the kids and we caught some nice Salmon. We also have some great pictures, and fond memories."

John Lumley, West Palm Beach Florida


"I have my own boat but it's only an 18 footer (perfect me and my wife in good weather). When I want to entertain customers or a bunch of us want to go fishing taking a Charter is the way to go. Plus I've learned a lot (ed will; always answer your questions and tell you what they are doing). I now catch more fish when I fish my boat"

Tom Robertson, Grand Rapids, Michigan
