Captain Ben Straley


I grew up on Lake Huron chasing salmon with my dad. From the time I could walk I’ve been fishing. Fishing the Great Lakes is my passion and there is no where else in the world I would rather be from April to September than on a boat trolling for salmon, steel-head, coho and lake trout! I bought my first boat at age 16 and spend more time on the water than on land most summers. If you have never fished the Great Lakes I highly recommend you book a charter with Big Water Charters and let us show you a great time on the water!


The Fleet




The “Daybreak" is a 1997 Tiara Yacht 2900 open. This boat is propelled by twin 360hp fuel injected Crusader engines. She is rigged with, Fish Hawk Speed and Temp, Cannon Downriggers, Garmin GPS/Fishfinder, Raymarine Autopilot, and fishing gear from all the best companies in the industry!

She has a beautiful cabin, with a spacious restroom. She is 11.6ft wide, making her an extremely roomy and stable fishing platform. The perfect boat to enjoy a fishing charter on Lake Huron!
