Reel Action Charters–Sturgeon Bay, WI

We define “value” as the finest charter service in Door County for salmon, trout, bass, and walleye

Fishing from the ports of Green Bay and Sturgeon Bay

Value is the measure of the quality of services and experiences you receive for the money you spend. When you fish with Reel Action Charters, you are fishing with finest charter operation on Lake Michigan and Green Bay. It’s impossible to get more for your money or the time you invest.

We have the biggest, safest, most comfortable boats fishing from the port of Sturgeon Bay! You won’t find any better on all of the Great Lakes.

To say, “We are the best!” is a bold claim. But our boats and gear, our captains and crew, and our experience, and our decades of consistent success all back it up.


Reel Action Lake Michigan Boats are state of the art big water fishing platforms – the kind most often associated with big game fishing on the ocean. Our anglers fish from the 48-foot Viking Yacht “Unreel Action” and the 40-foot Luhs Tournament “Time Flies.”

These are big, ultra-seaworthy craft that allow you to fish safely and comfortably in conditions that keep most others in the harbor. They are the biggest fishing from Sturgeon Bay. (To top that, “Time Flies” just came off a winter 2019 refit including interior, air, heat, and all-new electronics. The Reel Action Crew put in 100s of hours preparing it for the 2019 season on the Big Pond.)

Nothing compares to fishing from these big boats. They are engineered for three things – safety, comfort, and catching fish. Yes, they are expensive to buy, dock, maintain, and operate. But they are the best, safest, most comfortable way to catch fish on big water, so in the end they provide you maximum value.

Each boat is equipped with state-of-the-art electronics and tackle. We are meticulous in maintaining our gear so that we can rely on it – which means you can rely on it! It’s all about finding fish, hooking fish, and landing fish. The best quality gear gives you the greatest possible value.


The combined big water experience of Reel Action Captains is well over 100 years! Every trip is in the charge of one of these veteran captains along with a first mate who eats, sleeps and breaths fishing. The team works hard for your success, safety, and enjoyment. Whether your group is a crew of seasoned anglers, a family out to enjoy time outdoors together, or a party looking for a once-in-a-lifetime experience our captains and crew will make every effort to ensure your enjoyment.


With multiple boats on the water, Reel Action captains work as a team. We are in constant contact, zeroing in on the best locations, depths, speeds, baits, and tactics for the moment. No two days on the water are exactly alike. Our crews recognize that and use it to their advantage to provide you the best chance for success.

We know you work hard for your money, and your vacation time is precious. We also understand you’re looking for value. Most importantly, Reel Action Charters promises you will find it when you book your Lake Michigan or Green Bay fishing adventure with us.
