Charter Fishing

Fishing Adventure on the Great Lakes

Serious anglers and those seeking a memorable fishing adventure can hire a Great Lakes charter fishing boat. Charter fishing operators provide the perfect atmosphere, expertise and the equipment needed for a successful fishing trip including bait, tackle and fish cleaning – not to mention plenty of biting fish. Charter fishing captains take groups out on a fully equipped vessel, and trips can be booked for half or full-day excursions.

Anglers can cast their lines on the Great Lakes for a variety of fish. The glistening colors and fighting spirit of lake, brown and rainbow trout make charter fishing on Lake Michigan an adventure for anglers of all ages. Lake Michigan brown and rainbow trout weighing from eight to 10 pounds are common, as are lake trout ranging from three to 20 pounds. Also, you’ll find a variety of salmon species. The coho salmon can grow to be more than 10 pounds, while whopper chinook salmon tip the scale at up to 30 pounds.

Lake Superior is the largest body of fresh water in the world – it has a surface area slightly larger than the state of South Carolina and remains the most pristine of all the Great Lakes. Trout and salmon provide the most action and are usually caught trolling with surface lures. Epicureans will find Lake Superior whitefish is a wonderful delicacy and numerous restaurants in Ashland County prepare it in variety of distinctive dishes.

Charter fishing operators can be found at many Wisconsin ports on Lake Michigan and Lake Superior. For help finding a Great Lakes charter, contact your destination port.
