Capt. Craig Miller
Captain Craig Miller of Heatwave Fishing Charters

For Captain Craig Miller fishing is more than just his business, it's an obsession.  He began fishing at a very young age, being lucky enough to grow up only a stone throw from the Tittabawassee River and Saginaw Bay.  He was able to fish for walleye almost every day after school.   He was 23 years old when he moved to the big city of Detroit, Michigan.  This is when he was introduced to Lake St.  Clair and he got his first taste for fishing for trophy muskie.   The passion grew for this freshwater gamefish so great that it took over his life.  He booked muskie charters and joined muskie clubs. This is where he met some of the best bait makers and lure painters in the world. Soon after he was able to first mate and fish with many of these great muskie fisherman.  It was only after fishing with these guys for many, many years he finally gained the knowledge to become one of the best muskie fishermen himself.  This is when he knew he wanted to introduce others to experience the feel and excitement that these trophy fish bring. Twenty-two years to the date he earned his Captains License.  Since having this license he has brought many huge smiles to his clients faces.  Please take a look at our picture pages as we are very proud of the memories and friendships we have made over the years.  We would be honored
   to make some memories with you. Give us a call you will not be disappointed.
