Unsalted Outfitters

(15)
In demand!

There is no better time to escape the hustle and bustle of day-to-day life and get back to nature with Unsalted Outfitters. Captain Scott Charon has been fishing Lake Michigan for over 2 decades, and is excited to share his passion for fishing with you.

Hop on board his 24’ Pursuit cuddy cabin boat, the “Char N Time”. Beautifully maintained, this boat can fit you and 3 fishing friends on board without crossing lines. This vessel was made for fishing the Great Lakes. She has twin 225 HP Evinrude engines, and full navigational and safety equipment. The engines, the extensive knowledge of the captain, and fishfinder, all combine to make sure you stay on top of the fish all day.

You’ll spend the day targeting Steelhead, Brown Trout, Lake Trout, and Coho Salmon. The limit for Coho Salmon is 5, but the captain will instruct you which ones need to be released and which ones can be kept based on their size. The limit for Trout is also 5, but with a different size limit.

The trip will be spent bottom fishing or trolling, depending on which species you are targeting. These trips are great for people of all skill levels.

Children over 5 are welcome on board, and there are 2 life vests available for them. They will have some great stories to tell their friends back at school after this trip.

You are welcome to bring along your own food and drink, but please no hard liquor. A cooler to take home your haul after the trip is advised. You must bring along a Michigan Fishing License on the day.

Book now for a great fishing adventure. Capt. Scott can’t wait to welcome you on board and start making some unforgettable memories together.
