Capt Eric - Frankfort MI Fishing Guides
"I've been on several Lake Michigan salmon charters, and I can tell you that these guys worked harder than many at making sure that we had the right baits in the right places to put fish in the boat."

Captain Eric Walline - Frankfort Charter Fishing Captain

My name is Eric Walline and I have owned and operated Gold Coast Charter Service since 1992. Over the years I have enjoyed meeting people from all over the United States who have come to Frankfort to enjoy time with family and to sample the fantastic Lake Michigan salmon fishery. I made the choice back in 1978 to make Frankfort my home port because of the scenery, friendly community and great fishing.
When people I meet learn that I operate a charter boat, they often comment about what a fun job it must be. It is fun. But…we also work hard and always try to do our best to see that our guests have a good time and catch fish. I spare no expense in maintaining the boat and buying tackle so that we are are able to do a great job for you.
Most of our business these days comes from return customers or word of mouth referrals.
If you found me on the web and are considering a charter for yourself or as a gift, please consider giving me a call and join the ranks of our many happy clients.
