​One of the oldest, if not the oldest, continuously operating charter operation in the State of Michigan!

Brothers Al & Sonny Kimar started the family business in 1945 in its current location. In 1967, Al's son Dave took over the fishing operations. In 1978, Captain Dave purchased a boat with a larger engine and greater fuel capacity than the old wooden boats and became the first charter to venture 45 miles out to Stannard Rock.  In 1992, Captain Dave's son-in-law, Ric O'Neill, obtained his captain's license and has been running a boat ever since. In 1992, we began making trips to the Big Reef.  

With over 50 years of experience, we have the knowledge and skills to provide an unforgettable fishing excursion.  Many of our patrons have returned again and again to enjoy a trip that is seen as a once in a lifetime opportunity!
