Never salmon fished off a pontoon before,wonderful experience!Jim and Chase (first mate) were fun to fish with and knowledgeable.We will be back!Ice fishing charters too!
Our first chartered fishing trip and it was amazing! My 15 year old daughter loves to fish and we had a great experience. She caught two lake trout and the largest was 6lbs and 25 1/2 inches long, her biggest fish yet. Would highly recommend them!!!
We had a blast! Everything was explained and the heater was kept running! The guys were great with the kids! Great experience that we will remember the rest of our lives! Thanks fellas!
Excellent time ice fishing and great crew. Jim had everything setup and set us up for success immediately upon arrival. Will definitely be coming back next year
We had a wonderful experience with Jim fiahing on torch lake! Ended up bringing home a couple of Atlantic Salmon and are excited to cook them up! Jim was extremely knowledgeable, well prepared, willing to educate us - and frankly, hilarious! We had a blast just hanging on the boat
