Following Dreams Fishing Charters

Make your fishing dreams a reality today with a trip with Following Dreams Fishing Charters. Captain Robert has been fishing his whole life and loves to get his customers on fish. His father got him into fishing when he was just 5 years old, so he knows the best ways to teach the little ones how to fish.

You can have a group of maximum 6 anglers on board his 30’ Cherokee boat. This can be experienced anglers and novices. There is a covered cabin and plenty of seating, making this boat great for the elderly and kids alike. At the beginning of the season when the waters are warm, you’ll need to travel up to 12 miles from shore to get to the fishing grounds. The cabin will give you protection from the wind on the ride out.

When bottom fishing for Perch, you’ll each have a rod that can be used at the same time. For Walleye, you’ll be trolling with around 14 lines in the water at once – potentially, you could all fish at once, too. Perch can be fished from August to October, and Walleye from May to July. Each trip is 5 hours long from the dock to dock, or until the limits of fish are caught. These can change, but your captain will keep you informed.

There’s a private toilet on board and an icebox for the fish you catch. You’ll need to bring along your own icebox filled with food and drinks for the trip. You must buy a fishing license before the day of the trip, but don’t sign it until the day of the trip, in case the trip is rescheduled due to the weather conditions.

Wear warm clothes in layers – you can always take something off, but you can’t put on something you don’t have with you! Remember to wear white-soled soft shoes, and have sunscreen, a sun hat, and camera ready too.

Book a trip with Following Dreams Fishing Charter today! You’re sure to come back again and again.

My dad introduced me to fishing when I was about 5 years old and I have loved it ever since. I have worked as an auto mechanic my adult life but fishing has always been my passion. I obtained my Captains License in 2007 and started charter fishing in 2008.
