All about the Captains...

Call Captain Bob Schlitts:

Call Captain Bill Wright:


Bill Wright's 'real job' is a home contractor, but his first love is taking people fishing on the Cutter, a 31 foot Tiara that has all the comforts of home. He has been running charters out of Leland for almost 30 years. Bill enjoys taking families as well as corportate charters. With the bulk of our fishing done off the Manitou Islands, you will be able to find calm waters, and great catches in most weather conditions. Bill also has 23 foot Contender run by his brother Tim Wright. Tim provides a high speed trip to the islands with exciting light tackle fishing for those looking for a more hands on experience.

Bob Schlitts has been fishing for over 30 years! He captains a 28 foot Omega that will handle any weather that Northern Michigan can dish out.

What he likes best about running charters is "watching people catch fish for the first time or catching the BIGGEST fish they've ever caught. We love fishing with kids of all ages, it's really exciting!"

In the off season Bob is a painting contractor. If you are in the area and need some work done, give him a call, you can talk fishing all year long. He needs the work; he has 2 kids in college. Donations are accepted.
