About Us

Captain Jeff Hedges


Running close to 100 charters a year with an average of 600 hours on the water, Captain Jeff is always in tune with the current fishing conditions of the Big Lake. His network of Lake Michigan anglers is vast due to his honest and straight forward sharing of information.

First Mate Chad Richardson


Fishing since the age of ten, Chad is no stranger to fishing the Great Lakes.  As a First Mate for Trident Sportfishing, he has accumulated a vast knowledge of the sport.



 VENTURE  is a 31' Tiara Open, she has a fully  functional Head, Galley, Salon,  and Full V Berth. She is equipped with Raymarine Sonar, Chirp Sonar,  Radar, GPS Chartplotting, Downscan Imaging and Fishawk X4D down temp  & speed probe. We use only the Best Traxtech Downriggers and Rod  Holders. Propelled  by twin crusader 454's pushing a total of 700HP  combined with velvet  transmissions and tuned props we get to the fish  faster and smoother  than any other 31' open on the Great Lakes. 

The Vision

We  love to share our experience with anglers of all levels. Whether it is  your first time fishing or your 100th time, we promise to show you a   good time. We average 6 days a week on the water which allows us to  keep  up with the always moving and sneaky game fish of Lake Michigan.   Lake Michigan Charter Fishing at its best is only a click or call away.

When  you book with Trident, your safety and comfort is our #1 priority!  We  provide top of the line safety gear and equipment on board our   meticulously maintained 31' Tiara. Your trip will consist of meeting at  the dock, checking licenses and  safety overview, depart dock, fish,  have fun, return to dock, clean and package your catch. We do all the  work and you have all the fun (don't  let us kid you, it's fun for us  to)!
