Based out of Sawyer, HML Sportfishing is your ticket to a memorable time on the water.

Capt. Hunter will do his best to make sure you have a fun day full of fishing. He specializes in bow fishing, all to get you on that bite. This involves 4-hour trips, mainly fishing for Snakehead, Shad, Garfish, and Carp, depending on the season and conditions on the day.

You’ll be bowfishing from a 21’ Tracker boat with enough room for up to 4 anglers at any single time.

Be advised that rods, reels, and terminal tackle are not included in the trip price, because you’ll be bowfishing with the experienced crew and they’ll provide all the necessary gear.

Please keep in mind you’ll need to get a fishing license before the start of the trip.

The price of a given trip doesn’t include bait, so be sure to get in touch with the captain about what your options are prior to the trip.

You can keep anything you catch, as long as it’s legal to do so.

This is a children-friendly charter, so you’re welcome to bring your kids on for a fun fishing adventure.
