THE BOAt

HOOKED UP’S 28′ GRADY WHITE

Welcome aboard The Meat Wagon, a true Charter Fishing Machine. The Meat Wagon is 28 feet long and 9’6″ feet wide. Grady Whites have one of the largest back decks for fishing in the Charter industry. The boat is built to ride very comfortably in Lake Superior waves when other boats are unable to handle the waves in comfort. Our boat has become part of Marquette Michigan’s most popular fishing charter service. The Meat Wagon uses state-of-the-art technology and navigation that follows major schools of fish, putting you in the hottest areas possible throughout the season, resulting in more limit catches and happier customers.

The Meat Wagon has true power and speed to get you to the fishing area before the others get there. She is outfitted with twin high-performance 225 HP Yamaha outboard engines that provide 450 horsepower to get us to the hotspots quickly. There is a private head (bathroom) for your convenience.
