Booking a Charter
Can we guarantee you a limit catch every time? Then it would be called "catching" instead of "'fishing". We can guarantee a fun day on the water while nine out of ten times catching a good amount of fish.
Fishing out of Leland:
Fishing out of Leland is a total fishing experience. You have the open waters of Lake MIchigan and the sheltered bays of the Manitou Islands. Leland has probably the prettiest port and shoreline on Lake Michigan.
We start fishing in May primarily along the shoreline of Lake Michigan for lake trout and brown trout. By the middle of June we start running offshore (20-30 miles) for rainbow trout. These trips are real special because we actually fish on the surface in 500 feet of water where the rainbow are feeding on bug hatches.
By the end of June the big king salmon show up around the Manitou Islands. We continue fishing for kings well into the fall. Many of these fish are in the 20 pound class.
Fishing out of Traverse City:
Traverse City can also produce very good salmon fishing in late August and September. Most of these fish go by Leland earlier in the summer before migrating into Grand Traverse Bay to travel up the river.
What to Bring:
Michigan fishing license available online
from the DNR. (16 or older, you need a license)
* Rods and Reels
