Jim Dexter, Chief of Fisheries for the State of Michigan, ventured out with Captain Bill. It was cold, snowy and the fishing was excellent. Jim is a hands on guy, not afraid of a little cold. He caught his first fish within a couple of minutes of letting his line down. Not bad for never fishing Cisco before.
These little white fish all range between 2 and 3 lbs. They are awesome to catch on an ultralight.
Thanks Jim for taking time out of your busy schedule, to do a little fishing.

Things to Consider When Booking a Lake Michigan Charter
You want the best experience for your dollar. Choose a Captain who will go the extra distance to put fish in the boat, be out before sunrise or stay out until sunset. Eighty percent of the time there is an early morning or late evening bite. Watch what the local fisherman do. They are out early and off by 10:00 a.m.
This is vacation time. Find a Captain who will do a little extra, like stay out a little longer on a tougher bite trip and give that extra attention, thinking safety.
We are fishing Lake Michigan. Storms come up and fog rolls in. I have seen captains do things that are not in the best interest of the clients, like knowing when to call a trip because of wind. A good trip and safe trip is always first!!
Price. Everybody wants a good deal. Just because I have a boat does not mean it is all fun and games. I supply all the equipment and tackle. I supply a boat, gas and insurance. I have the knowledge of where and when to catch fish. A charter fishing trip is a great deal for 5 hours. Try and rent a truck or piece of equipment for 5 hours and you still have to do the work.
A charter captain is ready to go and raring to share his trade with you. Come out and enjoy. Don’t forget your sunglasses, camera, drinks, snack, and most importantly a cooler for your catch.
