Meet Your Captain
Captain Kyle Ender is a 3rd generation Lake Michigan Charter Captain. He is a U.S.C.G Captain and holds his 100 ton Masters. He has been chartering clients for nearly two decades! Most of his experience is out of his home port of St. Joseph but also has experience chartering the Atlantic Ocean from Ft. Lauderdale FL to Islamorada in the Florida Keys.
Captain Kyles family began Salmon fishing in 1967 when Howard Tanner first introduced the Coho salmon into Lake Michigan. Mr. Howard Tanner is personal friends with Captain Kyle and his son Aidan.(soon to be 4th generation Captain? ) Kyle’s Grandpa, Dale Ender, started Charter fishing in 1980. His Dad and Mom then took over the business and grew it over the years into Michigan’s largest charter fishing company. Captain Kyle still uses many of the same ideals that his grandpa installed in his business nearly 40 years ago. Family, fun, safety, and sportsmanship.
Captain Kyle began fishing professional tournaments at the young age of 13. By the time he was 25 years old, he fished all over Lake Michigan competing in professional salmon tournaments. He was established as a pioneer and innovator of many of the new techniques now used everyday on most charters throughout the Great Lakes. Lead core, copper, side planers, cut bait and meat ribs are all techniques tried and field tested in tournaments that gave them the competitive advantage.
Captain Kyle currently is a huge advocate for all of Michigan’s Great Lakes. He works closely with our state and federal agencies to make sure Mr. Tanners goals continue to be met and ensure our great salmon industry remains for future generations of salmon fisherman to enjoy.
Captain Kyle also does salmon fishing seminars for the Michigan Steelheaders organization, where he donated all proceeds to the fishing industry. He’s also been seen several times on Michigan Outdoors and is personal friends with Mrs. Jenny Olsen Ciolek, host of the show.
