In the past few years Finpower Charters has not been able to fish many tournaments because we have chosen to focus on our charter business clients first.

In 2015 however the Fingirls, an all girl fishing team comprised of Janie Agemy, Tracey Laaksonen, Melissa Ruboyianes, Shelly Anderson took First place in the Ludington Offshore Classic Ladies Tournament. They Fished aboard the Dreamweaver w/ Capt. Shane Ruboyianes during the one day July Event. They weighed the heaviest catch comprised of both Salmon and Trout.

However in 2012 we did fish 4 boats in the Ludington Tournament, 3 of which placed in the top 10 in the pro division.

Over the past 40 years, Finpower boats have won or placed well in nearly every eastern port on Lake Michigan.

Finpower Charters Captain Dennis Plamondon landed the Largest King Salmon in the 2010 Ludington Offshore Classic aboard the Finwarrior. This 27lb 2 ounce Master Angler King netted a hefty $5000.00 for the team.

In 2009, Finpower Charters Captain Dennis Plamondon also landed the 2nd largest king salmon taken during the Ludington tournament aboard the Finwhacker. This fish pictured lower right landed the team a check for $2,000.

In 2007 Finpower Charters Captain Richard Laaksonen took 1st place aboard the Finweaver in the Hoosier Coho Club Classic out of Michigan City for the fourth time. Capt Rich is the current all time winner.

In 2006 Finpower Charters All GIRL FISHING TEAM (Fingirls) placed 3rd in the Ludington Gander Mountain Offshore Classic Ladies Tournament aboard the Finwonder.

Please call us if you are interested in participating in a tournament event.

These are just a few highlights of several over the years.
