Danel Sportfishing

“Kids welcome & adults tolerated” is the motto of Danel Sportfishing and what they are all about. This charter company has been a family business on the boardwalk at Chinook Pier Grand Haven since 1984 and continues the tradition today.

Danel Sportfishing was founded by Dana Bonney Sr over three decades ago but his same values are present today. They believe that kids are the future and offer family-friendly adventures on Lake Michigan.

Whether you are planning that get-away fishing trip, a summer vacation with your family and friends, or even want to entertain corporate clients, Danel Sportfishing and the Grand Haven area are all ready for you.

You will be fishing aboard the ‘Danel’, a 33’ Trojan boat. She provides a very stable trolling platform and more comfort than the 30’ boats in the area. Built back in 1985, she was overhauled in 2013 and can cruise at a top speed of 30 knits thanks to her twin 350 HP Crusader engines.

The Danel can comfortably accommodate up to 6 anglers and is rigged with modern electronics and technologies to save your time while searching for a big one. Her top-notch GPS and fishfinder build up a clear image of where the fish are hiding.

On your day out, you will be trolling for Chinook and Coho Salmon, along with Steelhead, Brown Trout, and Lake Trout. All trips include the use of quality rods, reels, and lures, as well as the assistance of the First Mate, who works for tips. Just bring a valid Michigan fishing license, your food, drinks, and hop onboard. The only thing that’s missing is you!

The crew also participates in the Catch and Cook program that allows you to bring your catch at select local restaurants. Just let the captain know that you’d like to take part in the program.

I grew up as a second-generation fisherman. I have fished Lake Michigan since 1981 and love sharing this incredible resource as a captain. I have fished and won tournaments on Lake Michigan but my focus is providing a great family fishing trip. Kids are the future and I will never forget the charter trips I went on with my dad as a kid. I was lucky enough to fish with some great captains not only here in the Great Lakes but the East Coast and Southern US. These experiences were incredible as a kid and now I am lucky to be able to share the same kind of adventures with my customers. My family moved to the Grand Haven area with the sole purpose of starting our charter business and I am proud to continue that tradition today.
