Captain & Boat

About The Captain

My name is Capt. Robb and I am a full time firefighter paramedic with a passion for fishing. I grew up fishing for bass and panfish in Irish Hills. I have 30 years of fishing experience. 10 years ago I decided to take my passion to the next level and start a charter service. I am a USCG licensed captain. MI DNR inspected and insured. Take advantage of my 10 years as a charter captain. If you’re not interested in fishing we do custom cruises and excursions, sunset cruises, trips down the Detroit river, or dinner at a waterside restaurant. Call us for all your boating needs.
