Because Saugatuck is such a great area for shopping and eating, I never saw any reason to leave. The people are friendly and helpful. There is always something to do in Saugatuck. We even have restaurants that will prepare the fish you catch on one of the charter boats caught in the Saugatuck area.

Thank you for your interest in Fishing aboard Miryha - Home of Saugatuck's Sunset Charter Fishing. I know the spelling is funny but I pronounce it "Mariah".  She has a wide 13 foot beam and a length of 35 feet.  She is equipped with all the necessary safety devices and a few extras just in case.  Miryha is very comfortable yet a true fishing machine.  We boast more rods and reels than we could ever imagine using.  Our average mixed bag catch of King Salmon, Coho Salmon, Brown Trout, Lake Trout, and Steelhead is 8 fish per trip.  When the fishing is good we catch solid double digits - that would be 12 - 20 fish.  Hope to have you on board for a day full of memories.
