Do I need a fishing license?

A current fishing license and Salmon Stamp is required for anyone 16 years and older. Temporary licenses are available on the boat for those that do not wish to purchase an annual license. Annual and temporary licenses are also available online. Check with the captain a day or so in advance of your trip to determine which license will be needed (IL or WI).

When is the best time to book my charter?

It is my opinion that any time is a good time to go fishing.  Depending on what type of fish and the type of action you are looking for will determine the time of year you should book your trip. April through June brings fast action for Coho and Browns. June through August is tackle busting time with large King Salmon, Steelhead and Coho. We are filling coolers with impressive catches of Lakers, Kings and Steelhead August through October.

What should I bring?

All fishing tackle and bait are provided. A current fishing license and salmon stamp are required. It is strongly suggested that soft soled shoes be worn for safety. Other suggestions of items for your personal comfort could include, food and beverage, Rain gear and warm jacket (appropriate clothing for weather conditions), sun glasses and hat, camera and a cooler in your vehicle to carry your catch home.

What if I need to cancel my reservations?

It is understandable that there are times where things come up that force the cancellation of a trip. Please let us know as far in advance as possible when the need to cancel arises.

Can I get my deposit back?

A deposit will be returned with a 3 week notice of cancellation prior to your trips departure. If the Captain cancels the trip prior to leaving the dock, a deposit will be returned.

What time does the trip start?

In the early spring (April/May), trips usually start at 6:00 A.M. as the summer progresses, I prefer to start a bit earlier as the early morning can bring more consistent catches. We also offer afternoon trips. In most cases, we will be able to accommodate your needs.

Can children come on the boat?

Children are always welcome on the boat, as long as they get to catch the biggest fish. Bring the grandparents too. Everyone will have a great time.

Who cancels the trip because of weather conditions?

It will be the captains final decision to cancel or reschedule a trip in cases of inclement weather.

Will my reservations be kept if I do not send in my deposit?

Deposit are due within 10 days of scheduling. If the deposit is not received within this timeframe, there is a strong possibility that that spot will be rescheduled. Do not be disappointed, make your reservations early!

Are alcoholic beverages allowed?

Alcoholic beverages are allowed on the boat. I do prefer that any beverages that are brought on the boat are in unbreakable containers for every ones safety.

Are banned substances allowed on the boat?

Due to the confiscatory procedures employed by the United States Coast Guard (commonly known as the "Zero Tolerance"), we must require passengers to refrain from bringing aboard any banned substances.
