My Mistress Salmon Fishing Charter

My Mistress Fishing Charters operates one of the finest vessels, running out of the Port of St. Joseph, Michigan. The Captain and his crew specialize in providing a successful day of game fishing on the big Lake Michigan. On your day out with My Mistress Charters, you will have a chance to test yourself in trolling with artificial baits and fully enjoy the strike when you start the action.

Enjoy your trip aboard a 30’ Searay cruiser, which comes powered by twin 250 HP Chrysler engines. She comes fully rigged with navigational electronics, which include marine radios, a video fishfinder, GPS, and a depth indicator. There is a private marine toilet fitted on board, as well as an ice-box to keep the catch cool during the day and electric downriggers for a professional fishing experience. The boat has plenty of fishing space for up to 6 anglers.

My Mistress Charters offers an exciting fishing adventure on the beautiful Lake Michigan. A day out with the crew will see you trolling for Salmon, which are the Captain’s specialty. As well as trolling, you’ll be able to go for the light tackle fishing method, targeting Steelhead, Lake Trout, and Brown Trout.

After a lifetime of fishing for numerous fish species, the Captain has all you need to make your charter a success. Whether you’re a novice, a seasonal angler, or a record-seeker, this is your best choice for a fun day of Great Lake fishing.

A trip with My Mistress Charters comes inclusive with all the necessary fishing equipment you need to make a great catch possible. You will be provided with rods, reels, tackle, lures, and live bait. If you decide to keep the catch, a cleaning and filleting service will be provided for you so that you can take the fish home for dinner later. If you want, you can bring your own snacks and drinks with you to make the most of your day.
