Wanna do better in Great Lakes salmon-fishing tournaments? Heed the advice of top anglers. Atop many leader boards has been Capt. Dave Engel of Saugatuck, Michigan (view Tournament Wins), one of the best charter captains and tournament anglers on Lake Michigan.  Engel captains the 36-foot Tiara, Best Chance Too, with fishing and business partner Capt. Bill Bale. Engel earned his captain’s license at age 18, and has now chartered more than 30 years. Over the last couple of decades, Engel and Bale have earned a reputation as the tournament team to beat, winning nearly a million dollars—no small feat as purses rarely surpass $20,000 for first places.
