Fishing Boat JJ Mac - Ludington
The J J Mac is a Tiara 2700 Open -- a dependable,
well built, well maintained & clean fishing machine.

· DNR Inspected
· Twin inboard engines for safety (540 HP total)
· Enclosed restroom with electric flush head and cold/hot running water
· All the required safety equipment and more

We have top-shelf fishing equipment and electronics

Raymarine (Marine Radio, Autopilot, Radar, Map/Plotter, GPS, Digital Fishfinder), Four Big Jon Speed Riggers (Downriggers), Fish Hawk – Speed & Temp at water surface and lure, Regency Radio Direction Finder, AM/FM Stereo Radio, Cell Phone, and all the rods, reels, lures, and other fishing equipment needed

With three people fishing, as an example, a typical setup for salmon might be:

· Three lead core or copper lines – one off each side on planer boards and one down the middle
· Four Dipsy divers – two fished off each side
· Two downriggers each with one rod plus a slider on the main line

This gives the maximum nine lines for three people but with eleven lures in the water. In the early morning we might run two more downriggers instead of lead core or copper.

Salmon and Trout
Wow - what a day! Lake Michigan Limit

Captain MarvWelcome to beautiful Ludington and the J J Mac charter boat. We are docked in slip D-1 at the Ludington Municipal Marina in downtown Ludington.

Ludington is one of the best-known, premier Lake Michigan ports for catching the large, powerful Chinook (king) salmon, the super- exciting steelhead and also brown trout, lake trout, and Coho (silver) salmon.

Captain Marv has been fishing the Lake Michigan waters off Ludington for over twenty-five years. He is a full-time charter captain, knows where the fish are, and knows the good spots.

Come join us and get in on some of this exciting fishing. You could be in some pictures like the ones above after a day on Lake Michigan! If you are lucky, you might catch a Lake Michigan Grand Slam - one each of Chinook salmon, Coho salmon, steelhead, lake trout, and brown trout. (see more photos in our gallery)
