What to Bring Fishing
For all seasons, you provide the fishing license and anything you want to eat and drink. A good thing to bring is a rain jacket just in case it rains. You also will need a cooler to put any fish you might want to keep in. I will clean all the fish for you.
Walleye: During spring walleye season you can bring your own poles or use the ones I provide for you, your choice. The rest of the season all equipment is provided for you.
Northern: During the spring season we can either troll for northern or jig. If we choose to jig, you can bring your own pole or use the ones we provide. When we troll for northern, I provide all the equipment.
Brown Trout: During brown trout season we troll with all equipment provided.
Perch: Either ice or open water fishing, you can bring your own equipment or I will provide all the equipment needed.
We provide all the tackle and bait.
Things you'll need to bring charter fishing on Lake Michigan:
|A WI Fishing License with a Two day Great Lakes License is necessary to board and catch fish on Lake Michigan.|
|A sports bag is a good idea to bring for carrying your rain gear, hat, glasses etc and other personal items that you need on a fishing trip.|
|Bring a cooler for food and drinks.
Bring a larger 55 quart cooler for all the fish you're going to catch.
|Bring drinks to help keep yourself and your friends hydrated and happy. You can bring beer but you must be 21 years of age.|
|Bring sandwiches or food depending on the length of your trip. You'll need to keep your energy up for reeling in all the fish we plan to catch.
|If you get sea sick or aren't sure if you get sea sick then it is a very wise idea to take your Bonine before you leave the dock. Nothing can ruin a fishing trip worse than a guy named "RALPH".|
|Even in Wisconsin during the summer you can get a sun burn. Make sure you bring sunscreen especially if your burn easy. If you are burnt, you can't enjoy fishing on Lake Michigan.|
|Bring sun glasses. Preferrably polarized fishing glasses to lesson the sun's glare that reflects off the water. You'll need to keep your eyes open for the ones that jump.|
|You may need to dress in layers and bring some warm clothing to wear. You'll want to be comfortable when you are fishing on Lake Michigan.
|Don't forget your rain gear when you go fishing on Lake Michigan - The weather can change while you're out fishing for Brown Trout, Northern, or Perch.|
|A hat or ball cap is a good idea, especially for you guys that are getting a bit thin on top. Protects your head from burning.|
|Wear comfortable shoes with traction, so you can anchor in while you're reeling in the big catch.|
|Bring a camera for video and still photos so you can show off the fish you caught while fishing on Lake Michigan.|
|Tipping is optional, but we hope we do a great job and earn your business; year after year. Cash is a great thing to have for the restaurants or bars around the area when your fishing trip is over.
