The Janet Eilleen Too is a 36ft. Trojan Sudan Sportfishing Boat

The Janet Eileen Too (a 36 foot Trojan Sedan Sportfishing Boat) is fully-equipped for charters on Lake Michigan waters. We have the newest electronic equipment to locate your fish, and the best custom fishing tackle in the industry today. Downriggers, outriggers, and baits are all furnished. (We also furnish a first mate!)

The captain, Fritz Peterson, is a 33 year veteran fishing guide and Coast Guard licensed charter operator and the boats are fully inspected and insured. This all insures both a productive and enjoyable fishing trip for all.

Fishing is fun for everyone in Door County Wisconsin!

Everyone will enjoy fishing in breathtaking Door County. This beautiful, historic peninsula boasts more miles of awe-inspiring shoreline – over 250 miles-than any other county in the United States.

As you fish the azure waters along majestic bluffs, imagine the excitement of a 20 to 40 pound king salmon making its long, hard-driving, reel-screaming run. Or, the thrill of an acrobatic, tail-walking rainbow; the sky-hi leaps of a Skamania-strain trout; or the stubborn, toe-to-toe battle with a big, deep-diving lake trout.
