Taking a trip with The Fish Fly Charters is one of the best ways to spend a day on Lake Michigan. Join Captain Jason, who’s been fishing the Great Lakes for over 30 years.
You can also start an adventure with him from Manistee, just check out his second listing. While in Manistee you can catch fewer but bigger fish, here in St. Joseph, you can catch more but smaller fish. Decide whether you want more arm workout as you try to land your catch or you want an easier but more consistent action and start your trip!
You’ll be fishing on a 26’ Bayliner boat that accommodates up to 4 guests. This walkaround is rigged with the latest electronics and powered by a 225 HP Mercury engine. The boat is equipped with downriggers for trolling, a live bait tank for casting, and a cooler where you can stash your drinks.
Your catch can vary in numbers depending on the season but the species you’re most likely to hook are Chinook and Coho Salmon and two Trout types – Lake and Rainbow. The best way to go after these is by trolling or jigging. Both techniques are easy to learn, so you don’t have to step aside if you’re a beginner. With Capt. Jason by your side, you’ll get the gist quickly and be able to land fish without anyone’s help by the end of the day.
There’s a variety of rods and reels that are included in the price and always available on the boat. After the trip, the captain will clean and bag the fish for you to take home. You’ll need to purchase a freshwater license and bring your snacks and drinks for the day.
The Fish Fly Charters are family friendly and kids are welcome to join too. Spend a relaxing day on the water with your loved ones. Just choose the date.
