Captain Joe Wolff, is an outdoor writer and holder of a USCG Master's License. He brings 35 years of fishing experience with special emphasis on salmon and trout. The Ginger Brandy is a wide beamed, 32-foot flybridge sportfisherman equipped with the latest state-of-the-art fishing gear and electronics. It is fitted out with five computerized downriggers, digital sonar, satellite navigation system, 55 channel marine radio telephone and direction finder to help locate and stay on schools of fish. Whether it be the muscle tiring pull of a 20+ pound Lake Trout, a leaping lake-run Rainbow Trout, the twisting gyrations of a Brown Trout, or silvery Coho Salmon, or our prime target of the season, the powerful Chinook Salmon, you'll long remember this hands-on experience. The Ginger Brandy Charter Service has added a new dimension for visitors to Manistee - Sunset Cruises. There are few things more dramatic than watching a flaming red and gold sunset as the sun slips into Lake Michigan. We'll cruise down the Manistee River to view the town's waterfront before heading into Lake Michigan to parallel the sandy shores and high cliffs. As the sun moves closer to the horizon, complimentary champagne will be served before it dips below the water.
