Tom Manthei

I’ve been a fresh water fisherman all my life. I come from a family of fisherman. My grandpa Ed was a commercial fisherman out of Manistee aboard the fishing boat the “Ike”.
Growing up in Montague MI, my parents had a house on White Lake. I was either ice fishing in the winter or pier and river fishing in the summer. During my early adult years I started fishing on Lake Michigan by mating on some of the local charter boats. I purchased my first boat in the early 80’s, which turned into 25 years of tournament fishing. Three boats later, I now have joined the ranks of charter captain. 
Fishing has become a passion for my crew and me, and we love what we do. You will see that in your experience aboard Reel Action.
As your Captain, I understand it is my responsibility to make sure you have an enjoyable trip. From seasoned old salts to amateurs everyone is welcome aboard Reel Action Fishing Charters.
