A Fun & Fulfilling
Take to the Water
with Sports Widow Fishing Charters
Lake Michigan’s waters are far from uncharted for Captain Doug Wiggins— he’s navigated the great lake for over 40 years. Sports Widow Fishing Charters invites you, your family, and friends to participate in the ultimate fishing adventure or sunset cruise.
Docked in Berrien County, MI, we travel along the waters of Southwest Michigan from May to October, and the salt waters of Tampa, FL from November to April. When you board our ship, you’re not just a passenger — you’re a valued member of our crew. We aim to ensure you’ll receive a nautical experience you’ll forever treasure.
Words From Captain Wiggins
“My name is Doug Wiggins, and I’ll be your captain for Sports Widow Fishing Charters. I am starting my 17th year as a licensed charter captain but have been navigating the waters of Lake Michigan for over 40 years, specializing in Salmon, Steelhead, Trout, and Perch fishing.
I like to give my customers the full fishing experience, from placing the rods in the water to pulling the big one onto the boat. It’s important to me that all of my customers enjoy their day on the lake. Whether you are a seasoned pro or a beginner wanting to learn, I’m here to meet all of your fishing needs.
We are now expanding our fishing in the salt water through the Tampa Bay, Florida area.
Fun fact: Fun fact: If you happen to reel in some salmon, you can thank Captain Wiggins’ father! He helped bring salmon eggs from the West Coast to Lake Michigan — hence the reason you’ll find them swimming in our lake today!
