About Us

The Experience 

When aboard Silver Dog we offer a great experience to first time or seasoned guests. We will make sure that you have a safe and accommodating trip but also work our hardest to catch as many fish as possible. Our goal is to make the most enjoyable trip and with some friendly competition that you will have one of the best catches in town. 


Our Boat

2000 Sport Craft 252

Although one of the smaller charter boats in the fleet, rest assure that this can also put your group at an advantage. By making longer and faster runs to prime fishing grounds we are able to get away from other boats and fish more remotely. We will NEVER limit your success due to saving on fuel and not going the further distance to the best fishing spot. Groups of 1-4 guests are suggested.

The Captain

Originally from Ohio, capt. Alex Swartzlander (USCG Licensed) has been hooked and obsessed with fishing from an early age. Mainly fishing lakes and rivers across the Midwest. After going to college and majoring in Environmental Science he moved to Wisconsin strictly to fish Lake Michigan and start his fishing charter business. He has dedicated his life to fishing and sharing his true passion with others. 

Our Guarantee 

No matter how the fishing is, we promise to work our very hardest to give you the best trip possible. Although we realistically cannot guarantee that the fish will bite and the cooler gets filled, we will make sure that you catch at least one fish. If not, your trip will be free.
