“We have been out on several fishing trips with Talon Charters and have had great experiences every time. Both the Captain and crew are extremely friendly and very knowledgeable about the area which made our vacations to Frankfort, in addition to the fishing, memorable. The equipment and boat is top notch. I would highly recommend Talon Charters to anyone that is looking to have a great day on the water catching fish and learning a lot about how it is done!

“I own two companies in Grand Rapids Michigan. For the past 14 years I have taken my staff fishing in the summer. It has been a great experience and morale booster to the staff. I met Captain Rich and Linda at one of the fishing shows. We tried their charter and it was fantastic. Rich is the best captain I have ever been out with. We never come home without fish! Rich and Linda treat their customers like family each and every time you go out with them. The boat is clean and well equipped. My staff, customers and I look forward to our trip every year. Thank you Talon Charters for making each trip one to remember.

“I have had the pleasure of fishing with Captain Rich and his wife Linda for over 18 years. Three generations of my family (my son Patryk started at the age of 6) and many, many friends always have a great fishing experience and enjoyable outing. I have carried my wife and family members on occasions and Captain Rich, together with Linda has always been extremely professional, accommodating and makes sure everyone has a great time. I highly recommend Talon Charters guide services…You will not be disappointed”

“I have fished with many charter captains over the past 20 years and have had the pleasure of fishing on Talon Charters for 10 plus years on both Lake Michigan and Lake Erie. As a business owner I have also taken many of my clients out with Captain Rich on the Talon. He is by far one of the most qualified fisherman and human beings I have ever had the pleasure to meet and fish with. The boat is spacious, comfortable and always clean. On 95% of my trips the fishing has been excellent and Rich always makes a sincere effort to make sure everyone has a great time. If you are looking for great fishing and a great time on the water, search no farther than Talon Charters.”

I had a great time fishing for salmon and walleye with Captain Rich and his wife Linda. Every time we’ve have been out, we brought back a great catch. Captain Rich and Linda are knowledgeable professionals that provide fantastic fishing for people of all levels of fishing experience. I would recommend Talon Charters to anyone looking for an awesome fishing trip. Captain Rich and Linda THANK YOU and see you soon!

I have had the great fortune to have gone on many charter fishing trips over the past decade with Captain Rich and Linda for Walleye in the spring and Salmon in Lake Michigan in the fall. Many trips were with friends & relatives, some with business associates, and one very memorable trip out of Frankfort, MI a few year ago with my (2) teenage sons. Rich and Linda run a very “tight ship” and every aspect of the fishing experience aboard the Talon Charter’s is exceptional! So exceptional, in fact that I have never had another fishing experience that even comes close to the impossibly high standards set by Talon Charters. The extra care and attention given by Capt. Rich and Linda to my sons was very much appreciated. On that trip I think we set some sort of record for how many fish we had on in the last hour of our trip and my sons were ecstatic about the whole experience. I highly recommend Talon Charters for anyone who wants the “BEST” that Michigan has to offer.

I have a long history with Talon Charters going back at least 20 years. It started when my friend wanted to put together a fishing outing along with our spouses. He researched the charter boats available on Lake Erie not only for fishing prowess but a clean boat that would be acceptable to our spouses. After a successful trip it wasn’t long after that I recommended Talon Charters to all my friends. This positive experience has led me to fish with Talon Charters both on Lake Erie and Lake Michigan at least twice a season for over 20 years! They have never let me down. My fondest memory is the last time I went fishing with my Dad. It was no accident that this was on the Talon. My Dad although weak had a big Salmon on the downrigger rod. Captain Rich had my dad sit on the already filled cooler to bring in the fish, gave him a hand with the pumping action and coached him to land a big one. This will always be a cherished memory for me that I could have one last successful fishing outing with my Dad. I highly endorse Talon Charters, Rich and Linda for anyone who wants a memorable fishing trip on the Great Lakes.
