Tidy up your tackle boxes, pack your poles, and beef up on bait: endless days of Pure Michigan spring and summertime are almost here, and the time is now (right now!) to gear up for a Go Great Lakes Bay fishing excursion.
The waters of our own Lake Huron's Saginaw Bay are rich and ready with world-class walleye, and they're calling you to drop a line at sun up, sun down, and every blissful Pure Michigan moment in-between. You bring the poles and little bit of patience: our warm and welcoming waters will provide the day's fresh catch.
#GoGreat On A Guided Fishing Charter
Want to know right where to drop a line for some world-class Saginaw Bay walleye? Not sure where to gear up or launch out? Try your hand on our well-loved waters with those who know them by heart when you head out on a private fishing charter!
One of the best ways to fish Lake Huron's Saginaw Bay is alongside the experts at Fishin' Finn-Atics: U.S. Coast Guard Licensed Captain Mike Jablonski and crew. Captain Mike has a lifetime of Great Lakes fishing experience (and the 299 Baha Cruisers Fisherman boat to get you there!) For just $500, up to 4 guests can enjoy this fully-equipped fishing boat with state-of-the-art technology and gear, either on a morning charter (6AM-12PM) or an afternoon one (2PM-8PM). Additional guests are welcome on board for just $50 and fish cleaning is included, along with priceless Lake Huron walleye fishing know-how!
When you climb aboard Boomerang Fishing Charters, you'll navigate your way to the best catch alongside Captain Boomer. He'll show you where the prize-winning walleye lie, and even let you grill the day's catch right on board. Launch out of Linwood Beach Marina and get ready to be guided to an absolute goldmine of walleye, perch, and more!
Spend a gorgeous Pure Michigan spring or summer day trolling for walleye aboard The Michigan Experience Charters' 29' Baha Fisherman)! An enclosed head, hard top, and lots of room for your group to have fun make this charter an easy choice. United States Coast Guard Licensed Captain Jeff Godi and his crew launch out of Linwood Beach Marina (and also offer big water hunts on the Saginaw Bay for geese and ducks in late fall).
