Unsalted Outfitters

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 brand new spacious 30’ Pursuit Offshore boat! Beautifully maintained, this boat can fit you and 5 fishing friends on board without crossing lines. This brand new vessel was made for fishing the Great Lakes. She has twin 454 HP Mercury 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, as well as King Salmon.

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. 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.
