This Great Lake is super rich in Salmon species, Lake Trout, Brown Trout, and Rainbow Trout, and Capt. Jim will have you casting your line for them all. These are excellent food fish and will make for a great lunch or dinner.

Capt. Jim and first mate will provide rods, reels, tackle, and lures, and you can even purchase your fishing license on their boat. Otherwise, please have a license ready before your trip. They’ll clean and fillet your catch, too, so make sure you bring zip bags and a cooler. Come discover the greatness of this Great Lake with J J Sport Fishing Charters!
