Fat Boys owners Capt. Dale Allen and Capt. Dennis Brede are both licensed Charter Captains, with over five decades of fishing experience on Lake Michigan between the two of them. They are happy to share their vast fishing knowledge, make recommendations on what works for them, what setups are hot, and where the fish are biting.Looking for something special, that you don't see in the store? Please let us know, and we are happy to do our best to special order it for you. If the items are in stock at the manufacturer, we can generally have them available within a couple days. Fat Boys is also pleased to support local businesses. We are happy to be able to offer locally tied flies, in addition to our commercial offerings.
Our stock is replenished weekly, so please check back often. We are finding that the hot items tend to fly off of our shelves, so we do our best to replenish as often as possible. We have been overwhelmed by the wonderful welcome we have gotten into the Port Washington downtown, and will continue to give our best effort to support our local fishermen. Please stop by - the coffee is always hot and we have a free cup waiting for you! Fish on!
