John Pollock is a true fisherman. Not only is he a fantastic Captain, the man knows where the fish are!!! Fish with Captain John for a great time.

Captain John and Reel Impression have been a part of the ‘5th Quarter Foundation’ I organize with my wife Nicole. With over 20 years of fishing experience, a clean and comfortable boat, and an unmistakable passion for people and fishing - I look forward to sending our group of anglers with John every year.

This was my BEST fishing charter experience! Our group went salmon fishing with Captain John and his 1st mate. They were professional, fun, knowledgeable of the area and hot fishing spots and made sure our group had an excellent time. I would highly recommend Reel Impression Sportfishing Charter, for all ages and experience levels, it’s the best charter fishing Sturgeon Bay has to offer!

I've fished with Captain John Pollock for years. Every part of every season has been fantastic. Brown trout in early Spring including the 2014 Baileys Harbor Brown Tournament winner. Walley's and bass from spring through Fall. Rainbow trout from Spring through Summer. Salmon in Summer. Muskies in late Summer and Fall. It's always exiting. Sure, there are slow days but a skunk is very rare. There are fish under the real impression boat!
