With over 75 years of combined guide experience, Werkman Outfitters has one simple goal; use multiple fishing techniques to catch multiple species of fish to maximize success on the water.

We offer both Lake Michigan charter boat and guided river fishing.  The different techniques we use center around fly fishing, center pin, back plug and spin gear.  We target a variety of species including largemouth and smallmouth bass, northern pike, salmon, steelhead and trout.

The rivers we call our home waters are the White River, the Muskegon River and the Grand River.  For Lake Michigan charters, our home port is Yacht Basin, slip D-3, in Holland, Michigan.


As part of our commitment to the communities we serve, Werkman Outfitters donates to the preservation and improvement of Michigan’s wild fisheries.  In addition, 100% of our home office’s electrical need is supported by renewable energy through Consumers Green Energy Program.
