Hot Bite Charters Captain Matt Sell

Hot Bite Charters invites you to Michigan to explore the bite on the beautiful Detroit River. Join Captain Matt Sell to enjoy a personalized and highly educational trip for Walleye.

The season begins in mid-April and goes through the first two weeks of May. If you decide to go earlier, you can expect to reel in bigger fish. Those who book a trip later in the season will be able to enjoy more action with smaller Walleye.

Enjoy the warm weather and a lot of action aboard a 19’ Smokecraft boat. The vessel has plenty of fishing space for up to 3 anglers and comes powered by a brand-new 150 HP Mercury engine and a kicker motor. The boat is equipped with everything you need for a successful day on the water, including a Minn-Kota wireless trolling motor and an array of professional gear.

Hot Bite Charters and Capt. Matt Sell can cater to anglers of all skill levels and ages. If you want to introduce your children to the art of Walleye fishing, don’t hesitate to bring them onboard. Before you make your first cast, Capt. Matt will guide you through the basics. You will be able to learn how to be successful on the Detroit River system and make a great catch possible.

All trips come inclusive with everything you need to land Walleye. You will be provided with quality gear and tackle for jigging, as well as bait and lures. Please note, that you will need to purchase a valid fishing license prior to the trip.

I have been trolling and addicted to walleye fishing since 1980. I always have fish on my mind. Becoming a captain has not only made me a better fisherman but, unlocked a side of the sport that I truly love. That is helping others to catch fish and BIG FISH ! The only thing that makes me happier than a fish on is to help someone catch their personal best :)
