Fishues Fishing Charters

Join Fishues Fishing Charters for an exciting freshwater fishing experience! Captain Donald Ollie has been fishing these waters for over 50 years and he knows every fishing spot worth visiting. He welcomes anglers of all skill levels, including complete novices. He’s focused on teaching his guests and he’ll show how everything works in order to catch fish. You’ll leave the boat fully prepared to do it on your own!

You’ll be fishing from a 26’ Starcraft aluminum boat. She accommodated up to 4 guests and has enough space for everyone to fish at the same time. She’s powered by twin 150 HP Yamaha engines and can reach a full speed of 36 knots. The boat features all necessary navigational equipment, a live bait tank, and downriggers for trolling.

Your main targets will be Walleye and King Salmon and the techniques you’ll use to catch them change depending on the season. In April and May, you’ll mostly go jigging on the Detroit River, while trolling works better during summer on Lake St. Clair and Lake Erie.

Capt. Donald will cover your fishing equipment and make sure there’s a variety of artificial bait. Live bait is rarely used but it’s included in the price and prepared in advance. After the trip, the captain will clean and fillet your catch free of charge, so you only need to find a good restaurant nearby and enjoy your lunch immediately.

Fishues Fishing Charters will do their best to make this trip something you’ll never forget. Choose what time you want to join and catch a fish you’ll be proud of!

Captain Donald has been fishing his entire life. This means you'll go on a trip with a captain with over 50 years of experience! Fishing has always been a hobby of his, but since he's retiring, he decided to do it full time. He loves teaching and getting the customers to learn how to do it on their own.
