About Your Captain Dan & Boat

Captain Dan has been fishing the big lake for 30 years, with 20 years as a Licensed Coast Guard and State of Michigan Charter Boat Captain.Dan 02
It isn’t easy to be a licensed Charter Boat Captain. You have to know what you’re doing and prove it to get and keep your license.

Captain Dan is a typical Yooper; went away to serve his country right after high school, spending   a hitch in the Navy, and went to work as soon as he got out.


A strong believer that fishing should be fun, he also has a strong respect and love for the Lake and all its creatures, in and out of the water. “At One With the Lake” describes your captain, and you will be too, when you’re on the NOMAD.

An advocate of   serving his community, Dan has been active in various sportsmen’s clubs and organizations as a working member and officer over the years, and will continue to do so.



Our Boat The Nomad

The Nomad is a 38 foot Chris Craft Commander. Built in 1972 Holland, Michigan by skilled craftsmen and marine designers. An all fiberglass classic, Chris Craft Boat.h3Commanders are legendary on the Great Lakes and all over world for their strength, safety, and seaworthiness. It has a beam of 13 feet.

The Nomad is Sedan model, which means there’s lots of room inside to get out of the sun or other weather if you want to. Still, there’s lots of fishing room too. There’s plenty of room to stretch out up on the bow too, if you’re into sunbathing.

Equipment includes all the latest high tech electronics such as GPS/Chartplotter, Radar, Autopilot,  marine radio, fishfinder, speed and water temperature, and Coast Guard approved safety equipment. The Nomad is
inspected regularly by the Michigan DNR.

Twin engines on board are 454 Chris Craft Crusaders, 350 Horsepower each. The boat is maintained constantly to assure safe and efficient operation.

Fishing equipment is provided, with ski trolling and downrigger fishing being the two fishing systems used.

Once you’ve been aboard the NOMAD, you’ll know what we mean when we say “You’ll Never Go Wrong At Ontonagon”.

“ God bless America,   the land that we Love”.
