What to Bring With You!

  • Fishing License - **REQUIRED** with a trout stamp for all fishermen who have reached their 17th birthday. Daily licenses are available. Licenses can now be purchased online at Michigan DNR

  • Soft soled shoes - (The deck can get wet and slippery. No black or dark colored soles - they make marks)

  • Sunglasses and Sun Block - 15 if you’re a landlubber

  • Hat, Warm Jacket, Rain Gear - It's generally cool in the morning! And believe it or not, it does rain occasionally.

  • Food & Beverage - Check with your Captain regarding his policy on alcoholic beverages. Also your Captain may be able to provide Food and Beverage for an additional fee.

  • Camera - To capture the magic moments and to prove you actually caught big fish. If you forget one buy a disposal (they take great pictures).

  • Cooler - To take home the catch. Your captain will clean and bag your fish just the way want them for the trip home. Nothings better than fresh Michigan fish on the grill that very evening.
