Eric began charter fishing with his dad, Kevin Schippa, at the age of seven during his summer break from school. At the age of 18, Eric got his US Coast Guard Captains License and bought his first charter boat. He has been a full-time charter captain ever since!

Captain Eric Schippa is the result of generations of fishing experience and knowledge on the great lakes that has culminated in the development of one of the best fishermen in West Michigan. Take advantage of this and book your next charter with him!


In 1978 his grandparents started “Schippas Charter Service” which lead them to owning and operating a fleet of 7 charter boats.


Eric’s father has been actively charter fishing for salmon and trout since day one!
