Racine County knows a thing or two about fishing! With enormous Lake Michigan, beautiful inland lakes, and the picturesque Root River, we offer something for all anglers. Lake Michigan is home to lake trout, Coho salmon, chinook salmon, brown trout, and rainbow trout (steelheads). Whether you launch your own boat, hire a charter boat or fish along the shore, Racine County is an exceptional place to land trophy-sized fish.

All Aboard the First In!

First In Boat

The First In is a Luhrs Tournament 360 built specifically for offshore fishing. It is loaded with all the best electronics, fishing tackle, and of course safety equipment! The First In provides plenty of room to relax and enjoy your trip inside or outside. The cabin features heat and air conditioning, a large couch, and a full stand-up bathroom. There is plenty of counter space for a full spread of food or refreshments. Measuring 40 feet long x 14 feet wide, First In is stable, seaworthy and the largest charter boat in Racine.

The First In docks at the Reefpoint Marina, approximately a 15-minute drive from I-94. Year after year, the waters off Racine and Kenosha are consistently one of the best fish producing areas of Lake Michigan.
