Let's Joe Fishing- Sturgeon Bay

Let’s Joe Fishing Salmon Charters is calling all anglers wanting to test their skills, fishing the waters of Lake Michigan, to come aboard one of their trips and enjoy a day filled with excitement. Your captain, Joe Kutschenreuter is a small-group Salmon specialist, and he is so committed to making the trips memorable to his clients that he offers a “no fish, no pay” guarantee. Be sure to come prepared for the action ahead.

Your boat for the day will be the “Barbara Jo,” a 19’ Lund Impact XS boat, powered by a 150 HP Mercury outboard. The boat is an ideal choice for lake fishing. Agile, spacious, and stable, it will provide you with a great fishing platform and enable you to have a productive day of fishing.

There’s a reason why Lake Michigan has a reputation for being a world-class fishery – it’s rich with highly sought after, delicious species that attract anglers from around the world every year. Don’t be caught off guard when your rod bends, because at the end of your line there’s likely a Trout or a Salmon, and both of those species put up quite a fight.

You’ll have access to top quality rods and reels as well as a wide variety of artificial lures and live bait depending on your preferences. Additionally, the captain will work with you to customize where the trip takes you and the approach you take for the day if you’d like to have a more hands-on role in the planning.

Children are also welcome on all trips so feel free to bring your kids along and make this into a family outing. All you’ll need to bring are a valid fishing license with a Great Lakes Salmon/Trout Stamp, food, drinks, and a cooler.

So if you have a date in mind when you can get out on the lake to chase that dream catch, book a trip today and start planning your adventure!

For Captain Joe Kutschenreuter, fishing is in the blood. He started fishing as soon as he could hold a rod and hasn't stopped since. He's always been an outdoors enthusiast and a conservationist, which is why he enjoys running charters so much. Among his many adventures, he recently spent 2 years on a sailboat on the Atlantic Ocean. After that, he decided to return home to Wisconsin and become a full-time captain.
