Home of INDIANA'S NORTH COAST CHARTER ASSOCIATION
Indiana's Finest Fishing Fleet
Indiana has the longest and most productive Lake Michigan fishing season compared to any of the other Lake Michigan states. To get in on your share of this exciting action you can do no better than scheduling a trip with one of the experienced charter captains who belong to Indiana’s North Coast Charter Association. There’s sure to be a captain, crew and boat perfect for your group.
Each INCCA captain holds a U.S. Coast Guard license to operate passenger vessels and all of the boats are inspected annually by the Indiana DNR to insure they have all the required safety gear and are maintained in top condition. In addition, each captain and their crew are certified drug free. Most important, they all love to fish, love to help others catch fish and have the experience to bring it all together for your group.
Check any of the captains listed below to plan a fishing trip for you, your family or friends.
