Ultimate Lake Michigan salmon and trout fishing experience for any occasion.  We welcome you aboard the Best Chance father & son team on either Best Chance Too or Best Chance to enjoy a trip with the number one tournament boats on Lake Michigan with the best team, equipment and experience possible.  We look forward to making your trip the trip of a lifetime.

Join Captain Dave Engel aboard the Best Chance Too for the best fishing experience you will ever have!  Join the winningest tournament team on Lake Michigan.  Go charter fishing for Chinook and Coho Salmon, Steelhead, Lake Trout and Brown Trout from their home port of Saugatuck, MI or the many other ports around Lake Michigan that they travel to every year.


BEST CHANCE TOO is not an overnight sensation or a one-year wonder on the big lake fishing scene.
They have been fishing at the highest levels for many years.  Captain Dave Engel got his Captain's License
at age 18, and has been running perch, trout and salmon trips ever since.

Captain Bill Bale managed Best Chance Sporting Goods for 14 years, and spent many years as a Mate
before getting his Captain's License.

Together they have decades of experience fishing in every port on Lake Michigan and their amazing
tournament record speaks for itself.


Check out our yearly community project : At Best Chance Charter Fishing, The Salmon In The Class Project is where the 6th grade kids of Saugatuck Public Schools learn about the life cycle of salmon in Lake Michigan and hatch them in the class. Then us the fishermen take them out on a fishing trip and treat them to a fish fry.
