Looking for a good charter for this summer

Recommended Posts

Booking a family charter trip for this summer...would like to cut the learning curve down when weeding out the good from the bad from the ugly. If someone could steer me in the right direction that would be great. I've been looking online and every website says they're the best...of course. thanks for the help.

For what kind of fish and what lake? If your looking into Lake Superior, give Joel a call at end of the line charters.

I am a charter boat capt. and i think that if you are looking for a great trip i think that every body is good and they will show you a great time and if they are bitting you will have a great time. the capt. will do his best and hope for good weather and he will know where the fish are and will do his best to hook you up and have fun with who ever you are out with so pick one and hold on the salman are going good right now and have some fun and if you would like more info let me now.

I have been out on Hard times charters with capt.steve and End of the line charters with capt.joel in thte past and would recommend both. These are both duluth charters.

I worked on chaters both on the great lakes and on the east coast of FL, most any capt. will try and find you fish.

If you think about it no fish= bad rep. and no tips.

try and find a crew that you will have fun with.

if your not catching fish and your out with a crabby crew, you'll have a day on a boat with a guy you don't like!!(He**)

the only one, I know of here that I didn't like is located at barkers island and has 3 letters for the name of the charter!! hope this helps

I Highly recomend End of the Line. Joel knows his stuff and his past 1st mates have been good old FM boys. Also Skippers Kid is now Chartering and Tom should be on fish as well. I know he sure spends a lot of time out there and is in the mix.

      Was out the last 2 days. Saw some Crappies caught in warmer bays. Not much action outside the mouths of bays today. Hoping it picks up this week. Trying to learn this lake over the summer.

      The creek is still very high and dirty. Prespawn smallies don't seem to mind😁 Morning bite has been very consistent this last week.

      Any new reports from this past weekend?  Heading up Thursday for a long Memorial Day weekend. Looking for a place to start. Going out of Bayview RV resort. First year fishing vermilion.

      Looks like your neighbors old pontoon is in some trouble, only a couple inches of the motor is above the water.

      Nice fish, but sad for the property owners.

      On the south end...  A great week of walleye fishing with good numbers of fish and some big walleyes and pike caught as well. Most anglers are finding walleyes vertical jigging.  A jig and emerald shiner or fathead did the trick.  With the naturally "stained" waters of LOW, gold, glow, pink, orange, chartreuse or a combo of these colors works well. Some anglers catching good numbers of walleyes trolling crankbaits over shallow sand, 5 - 12' of water.  Regardless of what technique, a lot of good fish on shallow sand this week. Walleyes are being caught in 3 - 31 feet of water.  Some walleyes are still spawning while others are well past that point.  Different things are happening depending upon what part of the lake, bay or river you are fishing.  A mixed bag for walleye anglers including walleyes, sauger, pike, perch, and sturgeon.   On the Rainy River...   The river has a lot of current with the dam wide open and high water levels.    Typical spots in the main channel are still tough to fish due to high current.  Finding current breaks adjacent to shorelines or the mouth of bays has been productive for those fishing the river.  Once you find fish, there are normally good numbers. Sturgeon fishing is closed until July 1st.  July 1 - Sep 30 is a sturgeon keep season with one fish per calendar year 45" - 50" or over 75". Up at the NW Angle...  A great jig continues.  Fish are being found in various depths from 5' -  30'.  Shoreline structure, neckdown areas and on some shallow flats are producing fish. Again, a jig and minnow was by far the most common method vertically jigged below the boat.  Trolling crankbaits over 5' - 12' over shallow flats or sand has been productive. Various ways to travel to the Angle. 1.  Drive through Canada to the Angle  (must be vaccinated, no covid test required) 2.  LOW Passenger Service (charter boat service across the lake avoiding customs)  3.  Lake Country Air.(fly from various Midwest locations to LOW and NW Angle) 4.  Take your own boat.  (Safety first, this is a 40 mile ride over big water)

      We will be up for our yearly trip June 4-11.  Just seeing if it's the usual baits so far fishing.  Anyone bobber fishing?  Lindy rig?  I'm assuming the water is told cold at this point for Leeches. Thank fellas.

      I spent last week on Kabetogama and the conditions are hard to believe. Water keeps rising. The forecast was for another foot rise. We stay at Northern Lights Resort and they went over and above for the guests. Built bridges to the floating docks! Fishing was amazing! Hard to catch small enough fish to keep! People up there are battling to protect and save what they can.

      I'm not getting any good reports on the lake conditions there. Friends on Ash River have water in their cabin. Hope all losses are at a minimum.🙏
