About Us

salmon fishing on lake michigan from algoma, wi

Zach Burgess is a United States Coast Guard licensed Captain.  I enjoy providing a full service fishing charter experience on Lake Michigan.


By choosing Why Knot Charters you are getting an experienced captain that knows the waters of Lake Michigan.  I have been fishing Lake Michigan my whole life and have 17 years of experience on a charter boat. In those 17 years I have been part of two Wisconsin state records. First one was the state record pink salmon, 6.12 pounds. The second record is the state record brown trout, 36.56 pounds.
