Northstar Fishing Adventures

Come and see what makes Lake Huron fishing ‘“great” with Northstar Fishing Adventures. Get out on the Saginaw Bay and explore the Walleye and Perch-filled waters in one of Michigan’s top fishing destinations. Head out from Standish, and discover an incredible world of fishing in the famous bay.

Let Captain Andrew Hendrickson show you the ropes. An avid angler of over 35 years, he’s fished professionally for most of his adult life, competing in several competitions. Having perfected his skills and technique, he decided to combine his fishing passion with his thirst to help others. He welcomes anglers of all levels to come aboard and learn from him.

Step aboard the 21’ Skitter aluminum fishing boat. Powered by a 250 HP Yamaha engine, she can reach speeds of up to a breathtaking 48 knots as you head out to the best fishing grounds. There’s plenty of space for up to 5 guests, each of whom can fish at the same time. Water is provided, but bring your own drinks and snacks, and even CDs, to blast out your favorite tunes.

Fitted with downriggers and a live bait well, she’s a vessel prepared for fishing. Live bait will be prepared before the trip, so all you need to do is grab the Okuma rods and reels that are provided and get your fish on.

Target monster Walleye, beautiful Perch, and a range of other delicious creatures. From Catifsh to Salmon, Musky, and Sturgeon, these waters are overflowing with incredible fish. Each of these will put up a fight to come aboard, so get ready for a thrilling battle and an even better treat on your plate.

At the end of the day, the first mate will clean and fillet your catch so that you’re ready to cook it right away. You’re in for a truly personalized service aboard, so come and explore Saginaw Bay’s incredible waters in comfort and style. All you need to do is pick up your fishing license and get ready. Northstar Fishing Adventures can’t wait to welcome you aboard!

An avid fisherman of over 35 years, Captain Andrew got his captain's license in 2018 after deciding to turn his passion into a profession. He used to fish tournaments and has perfected his technique over a lifetime's fishing. However, running charters cannot compare to tournament fishing. Capt. Andrew just loves teaching people new techniques and – the best part of the job – seeing people having fun thanks to his guidance.
