Let's Go Fishing!
Welcome to Great Lakes charter fishing! My name is Eric Walline and I have operated Gold Coast Charter Service, Inc. since 1992 on Lake Michigan for salmon and trout. Over the years, I have enjoyed meeting people from all walks of life who come to Lake Michigan for great salmon charter fishing.
My goal is to provide you, your family, customers or employees with a safe and enjoyable Great Lakes charter fishing experience. I invite you to contact me today to schedule your fun filled and memorable day on Lake Michigan.
We work our trips with TWO licensed captains on the boat at once, because there's no such thing as too much know-how.
Between Capt. Eric Walline (Owner & Founder)
and Capt. Wayne Smith, you're looking at over 70 years of Lake Michigan fishing experience.
We've been fishing the port of Frankfort as professional salmon guides for decades and we will work hard to make sure that you have a great time and catch fish.
THE TROPHY CUP
Our boat, the Trophy Cup, is a 30' Cherokee, Charter Edition. This boat is wide, roomy, made in Michigan and specifically designed for Great Lakes charter fishing.
Fishing, mechanical, and safety equipment are kept in top condition and include fire extinguishers, life jackets. first aid, radar, ship-to-shore radio, fish graphs, speed and temperature probes, down riggers, auto pilot, and GPS.
31 Pound King Salmon
2018 was the year of big fish.
We caught several in the 25 to 28 pound range. Our biggest fish since 1978 was this 31 pounder caught in front of the pier heads in July.
