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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
Not only will you look cool, you'll be able to fish without squinting.
Soft Sole Shoes
There's no need to buy boat shoes, any soft sole shoe is fine. No hard sole shoes.
Whatever your style, under the hot Lake Michigan sun, a hat comes in handy.
If you've always wanted to dress up like the Gorton's Fishermen — Carpe Diem, my friend.
You should always wear pants when you go outside. Bring a pair just in case you get cold wearing shorts.
If you're 21 or older bring your favorite beverage. No Glass Bottles, Please.
We've been all over Lake Michigan. There are ZERO shade trees in the lake.
Fish in a hot car trunk, that's a smell you'll never forget. Bring a cooler.
Phone or Camera
In an ironic twist of fate, your phone will work perfectly seven miles off shore, or bring a camera. Your choice.
