What time should I get there?
Morning half day charters start at 6:00 am and afternoon half days begin at 12:00 pm. Full day charters typically start at 6:00 am also, but we can adjust that time to meet your needs. We recommend that you get to the docks 15 minutes early to be sure that you have everything and aren’t rushed. We want you to relax and enjoy your day on the water.

Just a quick note to say THANKS for a great trip! it meant a lot to us all and especially to my father and kids to have a trip to remember for a long time! We will be sharing the fish with our friends and when they ask, we are telling them WHO, WHERE, etc. Continued good fishing – Craig A. Burke, Petoskey, MI
Well, we didn’t think you could outdo last year’s catch, but indeed you did. We, once again, had a wonderful time and look forward to fishing with you again next year. Can you out-do this last trip? I’m sure you’ll do you your best to try! Thanks again for a great trip! – Beth Lindley, Lansing, Michigan
My fiancée Lynda and I had a great trip with you last summer with our friends Karen and Chris Fluegal. Lynda still brags about her 19 pound salmon. We look forward to fishing with you again next summer. – Mike Morrisey, Heathrow, Florida
Bet you’d thought we had forgotten about Leland and the great fishing on the Far Fetched. We haven’t! We’ll be back in Northern Michigan this year and are looking forward to another great day with you. We may be bringing more people with us this year, and may need other boats, but definitely count us on with you! Looking forward to seeing you again in August! – Pete Thompson, Detroit, MI
