About Time Charters

When most people think Detroit, they don’t immediately think of fishing. Which is good for you, since you’ll have first pick of its incredible Walleye population, assisted and guided by the experienced captain of About Time Charters.

Climb aboard their 2019-edition Polarkraft aluminum fishing boat, measuring 21’ in length. She’s capable of holding 6 anglers fishing at the same time in comfort, along with the captain. A wireless trolling motor is installed onboard, to keep you steady in the river as well as allow you to sneak up to the spookiest fish. A state-of-the-art system of navigation and fishfinding is also available, as well as custom seating and hummingbird electronics.

The waters of Detroit River are teeming with Walleye, and captain Damon Herndon knows all the best fishing spots. He’s been fishing the river for over two decades now, refining his technique into a fine art - which he’s more than happy to share with his clients. Jigging is the name of the game on this charter and the charter provides all equipment that you may need.

Cleaning and filleting your catch is available free of charge. All equipment required is provided by the charter. A valid fishing Michigan fishing license must be acquired before starting your fishing trip. Customers are advised to bring a waterproof camera, adequate clothing, polarized sunglasses, and sunscreen.
