    Fished this weekend with Eric and his mate. This is my 3rd time out on the Trophy Cup and I have had a fun time and caught fish every time. Sometimes we run into Kings, other times it's Lake Trout. I would recommend Gold Coast to anybody wanting to fish the Frankfort/Elberta area. These guys will do all the work and all you need to do is fight the fish to the boat!

    We have been fishing four times with Captain Eric and his mate Wayne of Gold Coast Charters. They are consummate professionals who treat both customers and other fishermen with courtesy. They are supremely knowledgeable about fishing laws and regulations, and they also know where to catch fish! Four times out on the Trophy Cup and we caught fish every time! Captain Eric and Wayne are also very patient with those of us who don't know much about fishing. An all around enjoyable experience every time - I can't recommend Gold Coast Charters enough!

    I had so much fun fishing for my first time on Lake Michigan with Captain Eric on board the Trophy Cup! Eric was super patient with me, a beginning fisher, and explained everything and answered all my questions. The boat is clean and comfortable and it was a beautiful morning when we were out. I caught a 21-pound King salmon! Fish cleaning was efficient and was included with the trip. I can't wait to fish again with Gold Coast.

    Great trip catching King Salmon. Capt Wayne and First Mate Fred were very helpful and knowledgeable. Boat was a good size and clean. We came home with more Salmon than we know what to do with. They helped us catch the fish, cleaned them and bagged them for us. All we had to bring was our cooler. Great experience, can't wait to do it again.
