Elsie K Charters – Saginaw Bay

If the daily grind has got you down, book a trip with Elsie K Charters today! You’ll love getting back to your roots and having a fantastic day fishing with Captain Gabe. He has been fishing for over 25 years and has competed in many fishing tournaments. He is great with everyone, whether this is your first time fishing or your hundredth.

Groups of 6 will love this boat! Families especially will love the ample seating and protection from the elements. The boat has plenty of space for the rods when trolling, and even a Bluetooth radio to connect to – have your epic fishing playlist saved and ready to go!

These trips are all about the Walleye. This is great table fare and fun to catch. The time to target Walleye is between April and June. If you reach your limits early during your trip, that captain will help you target Lake Trout, Brown Trout, and Salmon.

Children will love being taught by Capt. Gabe. He is patient with them and will have them reeling in the fish in no time. Kids of all ages are welcome and will enjoy these calm waters. Life vests are available on board for them.

Included in the price of the trip are the rods and reels for the day. After the trip, your captain will fillet your catch for you, too. You’ll need to buy a fishing license before the day of the trip, which can be signed on the morning of the trip.

Please bring along your own food and drink. Light alcohol, like beer, is fine on board, but it must be in cans only. It’s recommended to wear light layers, with light-colored soled shoes. Have sunglasses, camera, and sunscreen on hand, too.

Book a trip with Elsie K Charters today for an unforgettable day out. This will be the highlight of any vacation!
