North Bay Charter LLC II

North Bay Charter LLC II invites you for a fishing adventure made for up to 2 anglers on the rivers Huron, Clinton, St Clair, and Detroit River in S.E. Michigan. You will fish with Guide and Captain Tom who is a local guide and knows the waters of this river like the palm of his hand. He will take you to the most productive spots on the river and put you on delicious fish species.

These rivers are rich in many fish species, of which most desirable and prominent are Walleye, Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout, Salmon, Bass, and Sturgeon. Depending on the season when you go out, guide Tom will advise you which species you will target. This is a fineable fishing area and close to Metropolitan areas.

Generally, Trout and Salmon are available from April to June, Walley is available from May to August and Sturgeon in June and July. Though Sturgeon is an absolute beast and is hard to tackle, you can always take a shot at this great fighter.

You will fish aboard Captain Tom’s 17’ Clacker Craft aluminum fishing boat, powered by a 40 HP Yamaha engine. She’s equipped with life jackets for safety, a fishfinder to locate the productive fishing spots, and fly fishing equipment for those keen on fly fishing.

If you go on the Detroit River and St Clair River you will go on the Lowe boat. If you fish on Huron and Clinton Rivers and streams, you will go on the Clacker.

You are welcome to keep your catch so make sure you bring a cooler and ice to transport it home safely. Also, bring a camera as you will be in awe of the beautiful surroundings and the fish that populate this river.
