Dustin's Dream Charters :: About Us
About the Captain ... I grew up in Bridgman, Michigan within walking distance of Lake Michigan. I've been fishing on Lake Michigan with my father and brothers for as long as I can remember. I continue fishing with my father as often as possible.
I and three of my best friends have been Tournament Fishing for more than a decade. We have multiple Top 5 finishes that range from Michigan City, Indiana to Frankfort, Michigan.
My ultimate goal is to get people “hooked” on the sport of fishing, especially if they have never done this type of fishing before. I understand that for some people it's not so serious, but rather something special to be on Lake Michigan floating around in pure serenity. Either way I want to make the trip as enjoyable as possible for every individual, whatever their reasoning is.
One thing that is for certain is that you're going get 100% top notch effort out of me every time. I am to put a smile on a face and show others what a good time fishing on Lake Michigan can be.
About the Boat ... Dustin's Dream is a 1992 Tiara 33 open 12.6 wide fully insured and inspected by the DNR. Tiara boats are proven to be one of the best fishing boats on Lake Michigan.
Dustin's Dream has two seats facing backwards and two seats facing forward, so there is plenty of seating for everyone. It also has top of the line sonars, autopilot, chart-plotter and a 36-mile radar to make sure your trip is safe and successful.
All Brand new Cannon down-riggers, Cannon and Cisco pole holders, and over 30 Shimano reels to get you to the desired depths to where the fish might be.
Underneath is a very clean and spacious full bathroom and galley.
Lastly, there is a mounted gas grill, so bring a lunch that you might want grilled, kick back in style, and truly enjoy your trip!

Recipes ... One of my favorite ways to grill salmon is to take some tin foil roll out enough for how much your gonna cook make it 2 pieces thick roll up the sides so nothing drips out, take your salmon lay it down inside the tin foil dish and take any kind of salsa and poor it on top of your salmon and throw it on the grill cook for around 20-25 minutes.
