A Coast Guard crew from Station Grand Haven responded to the call for help at about 9:15 a.m.
The man was on the Desperado, a charter fishing boat owned by Capt. Bob McKee. The boat operates out of Grand Isle Marina. It was about two and a half miles offshore at the time.
Capt. Bob McKee Jr. was on the boat this morning. He said they called the Coast Guard for help after the man passed out a couple of times.
“They came out, but it was a little bumpy out there,” McKee said. “So we brought him back in to Government Basin.”
Grand Haven Department of Public Safety officers and a North Ottawa Community Hospital ambulance crew met the boat at the Coast Guard Station.
McKee said the man had caught a nice King Salmon before the incident. He said the boat had left the dock about 6 a.m. for the outing.
The man was alert and talking to the Coast Guard on the way back to shore, McKee said.
