The Captain

Captain John ZabelHi, I am captain John Zabel and I have been a charter captain since 1987.  I would like to welcome you aboard the "Dead Reckon," Sheboygan's 35' Egg Harbor Sport Fishing Yacht. I am licensed with the US Coast Guard, the state of Wisconsin, and of course am a veteran fisherman. I am a member of the National Association of Charter Boat Captains, the Sheboygan Area Great Lakes Fishermann Assocation, and the Sheboygan County Chamber of Commerce. Dead Reckon has over 100 + square feet of fishing room, a very spacious salon with a couch and chair, indoor bathroom, and roomy back deck where the battles take place. The accommodations will make your fishing trip extremely enjoyable. One place not to miss is the breath talking view from the fly bridge, both during the morning sun rises and the evening sun sets!

When fishing on Lake Michigan, dependable navigation equipment is a must. Dead Reckon is equipped with the latest marine technology. Electronic & Navigation equipment includes: *Furuno 32 Mile Radar
*Raytheon Hailer 
*Three Icom VHF Radio's
*Furnuno Chart Plotter with Graph
*Furnuno Depth Sounder & Fish Finder
*6 Big Jon Electric Downriggers
*Top Quality Rods and Reels
*A huge selection of lures to satisfy any trout or salmon.

Contact us today, for a list of available dates. We look forward to meeting you and your group.  To our yearly customers and their groups, we look forward to seeing you again this year!
