Friday afternoon fishing on Lake Michigan was a wonderful experience. Jarrod and Lily knew what they were doing. Jarrod was on it! If there was a fish on the line he saw it. We will be back!
Based on the time of the season I was worried we were going to get any fish at all but Jarrod came through! Once we cleared the entrance to the river he dropped lines and we had caught our first fish in 10 minutes. The fish kept coming into the boat and if there was a lull Jarrod would change baits and keep going. Great time will do it again!
Very laid back captain. He can have a beginner like me catching big fish. Plus you will enjoy sharing the boat with a great dude.
We had a great time on the afternoon / sunset fishing charter. With 4 adults and 2 children (and 4 with minimal experience) we all caught fish and some of them were quite large (over 10 lbs.)!
The boat was clean and the fishing gear was very new. Everything was in great shape and easy to use - especially for the kids. Jarrod's instruction to the kids was friendly and simple enough for them to understand. One of the parts that I liked the most was how social Jarrod was with everyone - especially the kids. You could also see how excited Jarrod got for the boys when they were landing their fish - and for a father, that is the mark of a great fishing guide.
I booked this excursion to provide my family (wife, kids, in-laws) a different kind of experience that was fun but also unlike anything that we have done together before. We all had a blast! It has been about 2 weeks since the trip and my kids and father-in-law are still talking about it. Great memories and great pictures to hold onto for sure.
After going through a long year with many challenges and disappointments, this trip was exactly what we all needed to wrap up our summer together. I can't say enough to express my gratitude. And the sunset view out on the lake were beautiful to enjoy as we wrapped things up to head back in.
We will definitely visit St. Joseph again in the future. And when we are there - I will definitely reach out to Jarrod again to see if we can link up for another outing.
We highly recommend Jarrod Hasse and In the Box. Jarrod was a terrific guide, fisherman, and took good care of our group (ages 14-82) from start to finish. We had a great time and could not recommend him more highly.
I grew up fishing with my Dad on Lake Michigan and My Mom and I wanted to show my husband and 3 boys the joy of fishing. Not only did we all reel in big fish but our boys (ages 12, 10, and 8) had so much fun they were begging to find a fishing camp! We can’t wait to come back again. Jarrod was very helpful when I called ahead of time with questions, and he made the day a success. He has a lot of skill and really knew how to make if fun for our family.
Jarrod works hard to make sure you catch lots of fish.
Booked a trip with In The Box Charters while visiting relatives in Michigan. Ten minutes after Captain Jarrod set the last line we were dialed in and had our first fish on before the sun was up. He had rods covering the whole water column. From downriggers near the bottom, to dipsy divers and planer boards we had the spread for all species. We hooked into Lakers, multiple Kings over 20 pounds and even a Rainbow that did some acrobatic jumps. There were four teenage boys in our party on their first charter and they learned a lot about what great lakes trolling is all about.
Jarrod is the best. His boat, gear, knowledge, efforts, humor, and guaranteed catch are amazing. We all had a blast and hauled in a ton of fish. Booking a charter with IN THE BOX will be the best decision you've made all day. 🐟
We had a fantastic time, Jarrod was great especially with my 12 year old grandson. Limited out in four hours! 9 trout and 2 kings! Hope to come back in the fall!
Thanks for all the wonderful memories!
