Our Story

We are a professional fishing charter operation that has been salmon fishing out of Racine for 25 years (Previously Proposition Fishing Charters). Racine is conveniently located between Milwaukee and Chicago, about 15 minutes from Interstate 94. Year after year, the waters off Racine and Kenosha are consistently one of the best fish producing areas of Lake Michigan. When he's not on the water, Captain Josh can be found serving the community as a firefighter and paramedic for the city of Chicago Fire Department. Truly the two best jobs in the world!
