wadeCaptain Wade Beard

Captain Wade has fished all over the United States. He started fishing Lake Michigan, out of Waukegan Harbor with his Dad at the young age of 8 years old. Lake Michigan salmon and trout fishing is where the heart is. Captain Wade enjoys fishing for other species of fish, but salmon and trout is the real passion.

Captain Wade bought his own boat when he was 20 years old, and fished many tournaments up and down Lake Michigan. He then started working on charter boats as a first mate, and enjoyed seeing his customers having fun catching salmon and trout. While being the first mate, the charter boat he was working on came up for sale. He was asked if he’d be interested in carrying on the Ninja…………and the rest is history!

Ninja Charters is Dedicated to Dad

I have been fishing since I was able to walk. Seriously. Both my mom and dad had a great love for the outdoors, and so do I. My mom once said I would go fishing in a mud puddle if I thought there were fish in it. I have gone fishing all over the United States for just about every species of fish. My passion is fishing for salmon and trout in Lake Michigan.

You would most likely find me there. Here’s a fun fact: I hand tie many of the trolling flies we use on the boat. I hope to see you aboard The Ninja soon!

The next fish is Yours Dad….
In Memory Of
Richard Beard
