Charter Fishing
Besides Capt Ed Thompson's Reel Rascal II, many other charter boats operate from Thompson Marina. For your convenience, we also have a fish cleaning station, a changing room, a washroom and plenty of parking and room - and hookups - for your RV or trailer.

We are located on Lake Michigan, home to world class trout and salmon fishing and are in close proximity to open water, with no bridges to duck under, making our marina one of the best to charter from on this shore of Lake Michigan.

We can also arrange for multiple boat charters for larger groups or corporate charters.
