Fishing Charter Bay Harbor Michigan

Great Lakes Fishing at its Best!

Plumber’s Helper Charter Service offers morning and evening fishing charters (and occasional midday) from May through September. In past years, we have fished numerous ports in Northern Lakes Huron and Michigan, including Rogers City, Cheboygan, Mackinaw City and Charlevoix. For the last several years, Little Traverse Bay has offered a fantastic fishery, so our focus has been in the Northern Lake Michigan region.

Plumber’s Helper Charter Service also offers boating excursions for those who don’t care to fish but just want to get out on the water for a cruise on Little Traverse Bay.

Be sure to make your reservation as early as possible, as our schedule fills up quickly as the summer progresses!

Fishing Charter Information

The fish species we target are lake trout, steelhead and king salmon. We also catch coho salmon and the occasional Atlantic salmon, brown trout and white fish. Count on catching fish – we guarantee it!

Plumber’s Helper is currently licensed to take a maximum of six passengers, so there’s plenty of room for everyone! For larger groups, we can arrange for a second or even third boat. We offer a discount on multiple trips scheduled on the same day. You can choose a morning or evening trip, and occasionally we offer midday trips as well. Plan on being out on the water anywhere from 3 to 6 hours.
