What anglers said about fishing in Great Lakes

Be open minded to a variety of weather conditions and be prepared for any. If your not sure of how you will handle a boat in rougher water - take your Dramamine!!!

Enjoy! A motion sickness pre trip, wasn’t real bad but times of feeling a little queasy could be eliminated with some motion sickness medication. OTC

Yes. This is our third charter trip on the Great Lakes and the best crew (Captain Jamie and Graham) by miles. I would 100% recommend this boat and crew to anyone looking for an engaged and professional fishing charter. Hands down a Terrific Crew, Boat, and experience!

Be ready for a great experience, but remember it’s called fishing for a reason. We caught a lot of fish primarily rainbow trout and then lake trout too. We did not get salmon (which I would have loved to catch). But that’s why they call it fishing.

Just enjoy yourself. Remember that it is called fishing, not catching. Being out on the water is just the stress relief you need to reset.

Go for the fish that are in "season." Water temps make a big difference for game fish. Do your research before you book your trip.

Like all fishing, bite can be anywhere from hot to cold. A good guide will increase your odd greatly.

I sure would. I plan on booking another trip the end of September. It should be a good time going after the salmon.

We caught 3 walleye and a multitude of perches - small - so probably go twice to increase chances of catching a sizeable one. Was a pretty good day ln the water anyway - with a very enjoyable Eric. Thanks,
