North Bay Charter offers exciting fishing trips on Southeast Michigan’s lakes Huron and Lake St Clair. You will enjoy a day on the water in the Muskie and Walleye capital of the entire country, aboard a fine sport fishing vessel and in the company of an experienced captain.
The charter is operated by Captain Tom Arlington who’s been running it for over 40 years and has enjoyed seeing many satisfied customers he’s taken out. This kind and interesting person is well informed about the local fisheries, and will gladly share his knowledge with you.
You will fish aboard his 24-foot Shamrock offshore sport fishing boat, originally built in 2003, and restored in 2019. It is powered by a brand-new 280 HP Mercruiser (Chevy) engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 30 knots. This gives it perfect speed on the lakes when locating the productive spots or moving between them.
The boat is fully equipped with all the safety and electronic features such as life jackets and a fishfinder. It features a toilet and has cabin facilities for your comfort, and has a set of outriggers and downriggers to maximize the catch.
North Bay Charters will take you fishing for various species such as Salmon and Trout from April to June, Walleye and Bass from May to August, Muskie and Northern Pike from June to October and Perch from September to October.
Depending on the species you wish to target, Captain Tom will take you to the lake where they can be found the most. He will provide you with the fishing gear, but you are welcome to bring your own if that’s what you prefer. Just make sure to let him know in advance so he can make room on the boat for your equipment. The crew will clean the first 25 fish, after that there is an extra charge of 25$.
You will leave out of one of the following ports: Port Sanilac, Harbor Beach, and Harsens Island. Captain Tom will advise you in advance where you’ll meet so you can embark on a fishing adventure of a lifetime.
