Bry The Fish Guy Guide – Bayfield

Bry The FIsh Guy Guide Service runs fishing trips around Lake Superior. Captain Bryan Altendorf has been fishing here with his grandfather since he was a kid, and he’s been passionate about it through all these years. He has several departure points on the lake, so get in touch and see what’s the best spot to start your adventure.

Aboard your captain’s 24’ cuddy cabin that accommodates up to 3 anglers. Being powered by a 225 HP Yamaha engine, this boat will get you to any fishing spot smoothly and in no time. Everything you need for a successful day of fishing will wait for you on the boat, including Okuma rods and reels.

The seasons take a big part in what you’ll be able to target, so it’s best to get in touch with the captain and see what you can expect for the day you’re planning to come. Some of fish species you can find here are King Salmon, Coho Salmon, Eelpout, Smelt, Brown Trout, Lake Trout, Walleye, and more. You can keep the catch if you’re looking forward to a delicious meal. If not, the captain will show you how to release the fish without doing any harm.

Multiday trips will also cover your accommodation in the cabin. Make sure to purchase your fishing license, bring enough food, and drinks.

Trips with Bry The FIsh Guy Guide Service are suitable for anglers of all skill levels. Bring your family and you can all learn something new, while spending a quality, bonding time!

My name is Captain Bryan Altendorf “Bry the Fish Guy” and I am a U.S.C.G Captain and love to fish! Is started fishing when I was 8, thanks to my grandfather. After fishing many different bodies of water, I fell in love with Lake Superior (Gitche Gumee) and have never looked back. I have seen all of the Apostle Islands and enjoy giving tours of the area as well.
