Beyond Summerfest 2023: Fishing Charters Make the Most of Your Milwaukee Experience

Summer in Milwaukee: there’s something special about it. Its location on the shores of Lake Michigan makes it an excellent summer destination. With access to the sparkling water and refreshing lake breezes, it’s easy to fall in love with Milwaukee in the summer.  Another thing to love about Milwaukee summers is the annual music festival that spans three weekends and boasts legendary performances: Summerfest. Summerfest happens each year in the heart of Milwaukee just steps from the lapping waves of Lake Michigan. With several stages and incredible lineups of artists, Summerfest weekends are always epic. This year, you can join in on the fun from June 22-24, June 29-July 1, and July 6-8. 

If you’re looking for more fun beyond the music festival experience, booking a charter with Jack’s Charter Fishing is a great way to make the most of your Milwaukee experience. Jack’s Charter offers a variety of fishing experiences in and around the Milwaukee area. So if you want to enjoy the music from the lake, or take some time between your favorite bands, Jack’s Charter Fishing has the experience you’re looking for during your 3-day Summerfest weekend. 

Summerfest: A New Angle(r) 

Jack’s Charter Service in Milwaukee is a short 5 minute drive north of the Summerfest 2023 festival grounds. Since both the American Family Insurance Amphitheater, where Summerfest is held, and Jack’s Charter Service overlook Lake Michigan, you are likely to still hear the music from your fishing charter boat as it echoes off the lake. If relaxing on the lake while you listen to great music sounds like a perfect way to spend a day, here are some tips for making the most of your fishing charter and Summerfest weekend. 

Tip 1: Plan Your Charter Around the Lineup

Summerfest boasts some of the best musical artists in the world! But, like any music festival, there may be a lull in the lineup that isn’t packed with your favorite artists. This is the perfect time to book your charter! Check the lineup and decide which day you may want to step away from the craziness of the festival and enjoy the music from the calming waters of Lake Michigan. Make sure you look at the lineup for the weekend you plan on attending Summerfest 2023, and book your charter around the lineup for your trip.  

Tip 2: Book a Charter Perfect for Your Group

Are you doing Summerfest with your partner? With friends? With family? Whoever you’re going with, plan a charter that works best for your group. Jack’s Charter Fishing offers a variety of fishing experiences to accommodate your group, no matter the size. Got a larger group? The salmon and trout charter holds up to six people and is a great way to experience Lake Michigan and Milwaukee, while still vibing to the music on the shores of Summerfest.
