Mega Bite Charters offers fishing trips on the waters of east Traverse Bay in Michigan. If you want to experience all that Northern Michigan has to offer, a day out with this crew is the right choice. Your guide Adam Collet specializes in catching Lake Trout and Salmon, fishing the hottest spots known for producing outstanding catches.

Enjoy your fishing trip aboard a 31’ Pursuit cuddy cabin boat, which comes powered by twin 385 HP Mercury engines. It has a maximum cruising speed of 45 knots and can comfortably accommodate up to 6 anglers. The boat is fully rigged with state-of-the-art navigational electronics, which include a GPS, a VHF radio, a fishfinder, and a radar.

For your maximum comfort on the water, there’s a toilet on board. As well as that, the vessel is equipped with an ice-box to keep the catch fresh during the day and downriggers for a professional fishing experience.

Get out on the waters east of Grand Traverse Bay and troll for Salmon, Lake Trout, Brown Trout, and Steelhead. These tough-fighting creatures are favorites all across the nation, and your guide invites experienced anglers and beginners alike to come aboard and test their skills.

A trip with Adam comes inclusive with top-notch fishing equipment to make your catch possible. You’ll be provided with rods, reels, tackle, and lures. If you decide to keep the fish, it will be cleaned and filleted for you once caught, so that you can take it home for dinner later. If you want, you can bring your own snacks and drinks with you on board.

Mega Bite Charters takes every trip as a personal challenge and yours won’t be an exception. Welcome aboard!
