Captain Bill first love is taking people fishing on the Cutter, a 31 foot Tiara that has all the comforts of home. He has been running charters out of Leland for almost 30 years. The bulk of our fishing done off the Manitou Islands, with great catches in most weather conditions. The Cutter - 31' Tiara, 24' center console boat that runs out of Leland and Traverse City. Bill also has 23 foot Contender run by his brother Tim Wright. Tim provides a high speed trip to the islands with exciting light tackle fishing for those looking for a more hands on experience. We start fishing in May primarily along the shoreline of Lake Michigan for lake trout and brown trout. By the middle of June we start running offshore (20-30 miles) for rainbow trout. By the end of June the big king salmon show up around the Manitou Islands. We continue fishing for kings well into the fall. Many of these fish are in the 20 pound class.
We provide rods and reels, all tackle, the finest electronics and fishing equipment available, professional clean and packaging of your catch available at the dock.
