Step Aboard The BEST CHANCE TOO....
ImageWhere fishing dreams come true. Although Charter Fishing comes first, we still compete in many of the tournaments on Lake Michigan. We start our year in Michigan City then move up (and across) the lake with the tournaments and the migration of the fish. The tournaments occur during the period when fishing is at its peak in each port.  This makes for an awesome fishing experience for our customers.  Tournaments and our locations throughout the season are listed on our calendar.  We typically fish one to two weeks in each port before we move to the next port.

To date, Best Chance Too has won more tournaments than any boat on Lake Michigan.  Best Chance Too is the only tournament team to ever win 1st place in all four states (Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, and Michigan) on Lake Michigan. We fish the hottest ports on Lake Michigan when fishing is the best. We have placed 1st 47 times in tournaments, and have over 200 top five finishes since 1994.

Best Chance Too is the most sought after field tester boat on Lake Michigan, giving us access to the newest cutting edge equipment available, in most cases before it hits the market place. This opportunity helps us to win more tournaments and catch more fish for our customers.
