Join Captain Doug Karakas and EfishNsea Charters for a fun filled day of big water fishing from the Lake Michigan port of Ludington.  Some of Michigan's best big water fishing takes place from this beautiful Lake Michigan port. From spring ice out to late summer, early fall -  we'll target some of the best sport fish Michigan has to offer.

Captain Doug Karakas started his love affair with fishing as a young boy. In the 1970's Doug started to take his own family on outings across Michigan in his first 'big water' boat named the 'Capt-N-Hook'. This boat was a distinctive yellow tri-hull Doug rigged to take advantage of the new Trout and Salmon fishery.  Never one to be shy, Doug would strike up lively conversations with anyone who wanted to talk and learn about the how and when of Great Lakes fishing.  Doug could also be found on many a weekend in a set of waders casting a line to the fish residing in Michigan's rivers and streams.

In the early 1980's, Doug joined up with the Detroit chapter of the Michigan Salmon and Steelhead Fisherman's Association; the Detroit Steelheaders (The Detroit Area Steelheaders, Inc. became an independent club in the late 1980's).  Soon, Doug was active on the club's Board of Directors and remained so for many years. Doug is still active as a past President and until recently was the long time head of the clubs River, Surf and Pier Tournament Committee. Here, as well as with the Michigan Fly Fishing Club and other such clubs and organizations that Doug belongs to, Doug freely gives of his time and most importantly his knowledge to help teach the public on how to make the sport of fishing most enjoyable.

Today, Doug has put his years of fishing the Great Lakes, Rivers and Streams to work for his clients as a licensed Charter Captain.  Captain Doug Karakas can accommodate clients for personal trips of one or two people on his drift boat,  or he can accommodate larger groups when fishing Lake Michigan from Ludington on his 28' Cherokee Sportfisherman.
