Come out for a fun-filled day of fish catching adventure with Apex Angling Charters! Captain Carston Gregory runs family-friendly fishing trips on Lake Erie and Lake St. Clair. He enjoys spending time with his guests and taking out people who don’t have the opportunity to go fishing as often as he does. Even if you’ve never fished before, you’ll still have a great time on the boat!

Capt. Carston welcomes you on his 27’ Sportcraft offshore boat. The vessel has been newly restored in 2019 and she’s powered by twin 150 HP Evinrude engines. She accommodates up to 7 guests, although groups of 5 are ideal for everybody to fish in comfort. The boat features a fighting chair, a live bait tank, a private toilet, and a cooler where you can store your food and drinks.

Apex Angling Charters specializes in trolling, so you’ll take turns as the fish bite. Your fishing spots and targets depend on the season. Capt. Carston on Lake St. Claire targeting Walleye in May and June, then he moves to Lake Erie during July, August, and September, targeting Rainbow Trout. Finally, he finishes his season fishing for Musky on Lake St. Claire in October.

Make sure to purchase your fishing licence before the trip. To make the trip more enjoyable, bring food and drinks, sunscreen, a hat, and non-skid flat sole footwear. If you want to keep the fish, bring your cooler you can also have your fish cleaned for $20.

To be on the safe side, Capt. Carston recommends everyone to contact him the night before the trip is scheduled.

Captain Carston grew up in Chatham-Kent, surrounded by the best freshwater fishing in the world, with access to Lake St. Clair, Lake Erie, Detroit River, Thames River, Lake Huron, and St. Clair River. Spending all his free time on the water, whether by boat or bank or walking across the ice, he has been getting to know the different fisheries for 25 years. As things go, boats keep getting bigger, knowledge keeps growing and now Carston wants to share the amazing opportunities he experiences every day, with people that don't have the chances to get on the lake and smash fish. The local knowledge is the key for successful days and it always pays to put your time in with someone who is on the water all the time.
