Our season is April through late September. Full day fishing charters leave the dock at dawn and last about 8 or 9 hours depending on the fishing. Half day charters start at or just before dawn and end around 5 hours later. Our charters start out in the cold waters of April, fishing closer to shore targeting brown trout. In June and July we travel farther off shore to the deeper water for lean powerful Steelhead or Rainbow Trout, Lake Trout and some King Salmon There is plenty of action our here in the deeps and multiple hookups in in a day are common. In late July and into August, the water warms up and fish are plentiful as we look for the big King or Chinook Salmon, and the beginning of a Coho Salmon run. September brings shorter days and a cool down of the waters near the Manistee Harbor. The fish start to move off shore again. Coho are more plentiful again. Many good eating sized fish have been caught in September and October.
