Werkman Outfitters is a full service fishing guide company in Grand Haven, Michigan.

Our goal is simple:  Use multiple 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.

We offer family fun and we enjoy getting kids out on the water. If you would like to book a trip for the family we have all of the proper safety gear and tackle to give them the trip of a lifetime.  In order for kids to enjoy a fishing trip they need to be catching fish, and we would change our tactics to target blue gills, sunfish and perch.  Depending on the their skill level, we will use everything from live bait on a hook and bobber to Mepps spinners and crankbaits.

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.
