LEAVE THESE HOME

DO NOT BRING THESE ON THE BOAT

We want you to have a great time during your charter. To make sure everything goes perfectly, please leave these at home.

Image

No Firearms


We love guns as much as the next guy. We don't want to swim back to shore. Please leave it home.
This includes CPL holders.


Image

No Drugs


We're not here to judge. You can do whatever you like when you're not on our boat. Please do not bring drugs on the boat.


Image

No Bananas


If you bring a banana on the boat we will throw you and the banana off the boat. (Just Kidding — Sort of) Seriously though— No Bananas!

WHAT TO BRING

GEAR UP FOR YOUR TRIP

To make your trip as enjoyable as it can be, we recommend bringing a few items.
Image

Get Your Fishing License

If you're 17 years or older the State of Michigan requires you to have a fishing license. Purchase online and print for your convenience.

Let's Go Fishing!


Image

Sunglasses


Not only will you look cool, you'll be able to fish without squinting.


Image

Soft Sole Shoes


There's no need to buy boat shoes, any soft sole shoe is fine. No hard sole shoes.


Image

Hat


Whatever your style, under the hot Lake Michigan sun, a hat comes in handy.


Image

Rain Gear


If you've always wanted to dress up like the Gorton's Fishermen — Carpe Diem, my friend.


Image

Pants


You should always wear pants when you go outside. Bring a pair just in case you get cold wearing shorts.


Image

Beverages


If you're 21 or older bring your favorite beverage.
No Glass Bottles, Please.


Image

Sun Screen


We've been all over Lake Michigan. There are ZERO shade trees in the lake.


Image

Cooler


Fish in a hot car trunk, that's a smell you'll never forget. Bring a cooler.


Image

Phone or Camera


In an ironic twist of fate, your phone will work perfectly seven miles off shore, or bring a camera. Your choice.
