Freddie B Sport Fishing Charters

Freddie B Sport Fishing Charters welcomes you to the finest Salmon fishing Lake Michigan has to offer, here in Manistee, Michigan! Meet your captain, Fred Bolton, who has spent many years honing his skills on the lake. Even when the shore is blanketed in frost, Capt. Fred is committed to trolling for Salmon and Trout.

Step aboard a 31’ Tiara Sport Fisherman, built in 2008. This specimen was custom built in Michigan to get the job done just how Capt. Fred likes it, meaning you can’t find a better boat for offshore trolling in this part of the lake! The boat is ready and waiting, with a First Mate, rods, reels, a downrigger, and lures. Add to that the convenience of an onboard toilet, and there’s no excuse not to get out on the water right away!

Troll the lake for Coho Salmon and a variety of Trout, including Steelhead, Brown Trout, and Lake Trout. You keep your catch, and the crew will even clean and fillet it for you, too.

Freddie B Sport Fishing Charters is child friendly and can accommodate up to five people, so bring the whole family! Be sure to bring your fishing licenses, comfortable non-marking shoes, sunglasses and hats, rain gear, and a cooler for your catch. Passengers are welcome to bring snacks and drinks aboard, and are encouraged to carry whatever remedy appropriate if prone to seasickness.

Some big and tasty fish are waiting in Lake Michigan, let Capt. Fred take you to them today!
