Mega Bite Charters – 28'

It’s time to catch some tough-fighting fish with Mega Bite Charters. Captain Adam Collett is with you every step of the way to help teach you how to fish and reel in your dinner. Capt. Adam is great with kids and has the patience to teach them how to fish. He has fished all over but nothing beats the Bays of Traverse City!

Capt. Adam is an upbeat and positive person who loves working with families and children. With 2 little ones of his own, he knows how to make sure kids have fun while being safe.

Step on board his 28’ boat, which has a deck big enough for 6 people to fish from comfortably. The cuddy cabin has air conditioning for those hot summer days, offering shade to escape the sun. There are full safety and navigational equipment on board and a private restroom.

You can expect to target the likes of Lake Trout, Chinook Salmon, Brown Trout, and Rainbow Trout from May 1 to October 1. You’ll use a range of techniques, including trolling, which is a great way for kids to learn how to fish.

Children of all ages are welcome on board and will have life vests provided for them. They’ll definitely have a fun story to tell their friends back at school after a trip with Capt. Adam!

Included in the price of your trip are top quality rods and reels. These won’t let you down when reeling in your first fish, or even a trophy catch. After your trip, your captain will fillet the catch that you’re allowed to keep. Make sure you have a cooler in the car with ice to transport this back home.

Everyone over 17 in the group must have a fishing license before boarding the boat. You’re welcome to bring food and drinks along and should bring sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat.

Book a trip with Mega Bite Charters for an adventure that the whole family will remember! You’re sure to be back time and time again.
