My Name Captain Dan and I will be your  guide to a fun, safe and friendly fishing experience on beautiful Lake Michigan.  I have over 30 years of experience fishing Lake Michigan and will always give 110% to put fish in the boat and make sure everyone has a memorable experience.   I have fished fresh water lakes all over the country and Lake Michigan is one of the best fisheries in the U.S.   I have chosen Waukegan Harbor as my home port because it is the most productive harbor on the Western Shore of Lake Michigan to fish from.  It offers quick access to deep water which allows for short run times and more time spent fishing. This area of the lake produces the best catches on a day-to-day basis and therefore is the home of KingFin Charters.  I hope to get you on the water soon and show you what a good fishery this really is and what a wonderful experience this can be.  KingFin Charters operates with a safety first mentality and customer satisfaction is the number one goal. Thank you for taking time to visit my website and hope to hear from you soon.
