Captain Jake Romanack is both one of the youngest and most experienced charter captains on the Great Lakes.

The son of outdoor writer and TV host Mark Romanack, Jake has been fishing since he was old enough to hold up a trolling combo. “Jake grew up on the Great Lakes mastering both the fundamentals and the finer points of trout and salmon trolling,” says Mark Romanack. “Jake spent three years acting as a first mate on a dozen different charter boats before he stepped up and got his own “captains” license.

These days Captain Jake specializes in educational charters, seminars, YouTube videos and co-hosting TV productions as part of the family business Fishing 411 Productions.”

Captain Jake Romanack lives in Northern Michigan, but travels frequently to target trout, salmon, walleye and other species around the Great Lakes region.
