About Us

Lake Michigan Fishing Charters Staff

Kinn's Sport Fishing is locally owned and run by Captain Troy Mattson and Captain Bret Cook. Our company was founded in Algoma, Wisconsin in 1969 by the late Howard Kinn. The company was the first in the industry to begin offering Lake Michigan fishing charters that included salmon fishing trips, lodging, and licenses.

We Love Salmon Fishing

Our goal is to share our love of salmon fishing, top-notch charter boats, deluxe lodging accommodations, good equipment, and experienced captains with our customers. The company's enthusiasm and commitment to fishing and their customers has continued to keep the business successful for over 40 years. Kinn's Sport Fishing has evolved into Wisconsin's premiere charter fishing destination.

Howard passed in 2011 and inspired the long-time business partners, Troy and Bret to continue the high-quality legacy. Kinn's Sport Fishing continues to offer the same high standards and commitment to excellence that the company has stood for since 1969. Kinn's Sport Fishing offers eleven large charter boats, experienced captains, and deluxe lodging accommodations - we have built this business for YOU!
