Catch A Bunch Charters in Grand Haven, Michigan, offers fishing trips on Lake Michigan. Run by Captains Phil and Paul Retherford, this charter service targets Brown Trout, Lake Trout, Rainbow Trout, Coho Salmon, and King Salmon. Operating from May through September, Captain Phil brings over two decades of fishing knowledge to every trip. He balances his passion for fishing with his full-time job at Consumer Concrete in Grand Rapids. Growing up, he learned the skills from his father, one of the first charter captains on Lake Huron, starting as a mate at around 12 years old. Captain Phil holds a B.S. in Natural Science from St. Norbert College and has experience volunteering with AmeriCorps in Northern California and fishing in the Florida Keys. Additionally, he is a certified PADI Divemaster and trained in CPR and First Aid.

Catch-A-Bunch Charters offers various fishing trip options to suit different schedules. You can choose a 3-hour weekday evening trip, fishing from 5:30 pm to 9 pm, or a 4-hour weekday afternoon trip starting at 3:00 pm. There is also a 4-hour afternoon trip beginning at 2:00 pm and a 6-hour half-day trip in the morning. For those who prefer an afternoon trip, a 5-hour trip is available, along with a 6-hour weekend option.

The fishing experience is enhanced by the 31’ Tiara fishing yacht, equipped with a 12’ beam, ensuring plenty of space and comfort. The boat features a walk-in bathroom, ample seating, and a spacious fishing deck. State-of-the-art electronics include a Humminbird sonar, fish finder, GPS, ship-to-shore radio, Fish Hawk temperature gauge/probe, Cannon downriggers, and custom rod holders. The yacht accommodates up to six people, providing a comfortable and well-equipped setting for a successful fishing trip.

    Went with Captain Dan and Wyatt but booked through Captain Phil. So easy to work with! Weather was not good for the day we wanted to go, they even tried to push the time back, hoping for better weather. It didn’t happen so we rebooked for the next morning. Did a 4 hour cruise! Went with 13 yr old son and his friend. They caught a small king and a nice size coho. Would definitely book again with them! What a great experience!

    We had a great time and the action started early! Caught seven total and the kids had a blast! Went straight back to our AirBnb to cook some fresh fish! Both Phil and Dan were awesome to fish with! Highly recommend when in Grand Haven to take advantage of some great fishing on Lake Michigan!

    Another great day fishing! This is our 4th time fishing with captain Phil. He always has a great 1st working hard and netting fish. Never a disappointment with taking home a cooler full of filets.
