Elite Charters - Lake Huron

For Walleye fishing on Lake Huron, look no further than Elite Charters. You can join Capt. Chris in Saginaw Bay, where the Walleye fishing is known to be some of the best in the lake! He welcomes you aboard for whatever you’re comfortable with, whether it’s setting lines and netting fish or sitting back and relaxing.

Step aboard a 22’ Robalo powered by a 250 HP Yamaha engine. This boat was built in 2017 and comes with the latest fishing technology. On board you will find quality rods, reels, and tackle at the ready. A private toilet on board allows you to enjoy a full day of fishing without the need to sacrifice your comfort. Up to four passengers can fish aboard this boat, including children of all ages.

You can find Capt. Chris fishing for Walleye on Lake Huron from April through July. With more than 30 years of experience, he is prepared to give you a “reel” fishing experience! Your trip will begin in Linwood or Pinconning, at the source of some of Saginaw Bay’s best Walleye fishing. You will target your prize by trolling with light tackle, using spoons and crankbaits as well as nightcrawlers.

Elite Charters provides all the gear you need. Anglers 16 and older must bring a valid Michigan State fishing license. Feel free to contact Capt. Chris if you have a large group exceeding the capacity of a single boat. He works closely with Capt. Jody of Chunky Monkey Charters and they’ll do their best to split your group between two boats and accommodate you.

Book your trip with Capt. Chris and come enjoy the best Walleye fishing in Saginaw Bay!
