Captains Jim and Kim Musselman

Captain Jim Musselman is Michigan DNR licensed and certified as a U.S. Coast Guard and Merchant Marine Officer for vessels up to 100 gross tons.

He's a Ferris State University graduate, Master Plumber, and past president / owner of Great Lakes Plumbing, Heating & AC in Petoskey and Indian River. He retired from the plumbing profession in 2016.

Captain Musselman has more than a quarter century of Great Lakes sport, tournament and charter fishing experience, along with an unblemished safety record. Importantly, he knows how to put the boat where the fish are!

Capt. Jim's wife Kim also received her certification as a U.S. Coast Guard and Merchant Marine Officer and is working alongside Jim on a full-time basis now that their three children are grown and "out of the nest."  She is also a Ferris State graduate and enjoys spending her summers on Plumber's Helper.
