Jim’s gang after the first day of fishing.

Brian – most appreciation from our entire family of fishers for the fine service and great experience. Max’s 8 pounder was exciting, but so was every smaller fish!  You are a quality guy. Jack ain’t bad, either! Best regards to you and family

fish caught with sand point chartersThank you! We loved our trip – more importantly, the groom loved the trip!

Back in the heat of Texas now, though :(  Missing that cool breeze off the top of Lake Superior.

lake trout caught with captain brian of sand point charters

Bob’s son with a nice Lake Trout. He later caught a small mouth bass in Lac La Belle.

Thanks so much for your time on Friday with my family giving them a great fishing experience.  In my job role I work very closely with our safety department so I was very impressed with your safety orientation and explanation of all the safety features on the boat.

10 fish caught at Stannard Rock, lake superior

Tim and Sharon with their limit of 10 fish for the day from Stannard Rock

Hi Brian! We had such a great time fishing last summer! Tim and I are looking ahead at our schedule and hoping to be able to book another trip with you! Sharon and I had one of the best times we have had for awhile. I shipped 30lbs of lake trout home and though they were frozen everyone had enjoyed some fantastic lake Superior lake trout. We have recommended your service to anyone who has been interested.

Pat and Rob with their catch

Just wanted to let you know I drove back a day early to use my day off to smoke the fish. I used a pickling spice brine overnight, let dry, and smoked at 180 deg. for 7 hours. An old captain in Grand Haven suggested a light brush of maple syrup just before done. The fish was fantastic! I can’t wait to share at work.

fishing picture of dan langford on the boat with sand point chartersWow!  What a way to celebrate my birthday! Couldn’t ask for better weather or a better fishing experience out at Stannard Rock. Not only did I catch the fish of a lifetime with that thirty-pound Laker, but diving off the boat at the lighthouse was the icing on the cake. Your pleasant personality, knowledge of the sport and the surrounding area, and many fish stories all helped to make the trip enjoyable – oh and I don’t want to forget the delicious smoked Lake Trout snack.

“Thanks Brian – for a great day of late September lake trout fishing.  If you ordered the weather it could not have been better. Sunny skies and calm winds made for some comfortable time on the water.  The Fishin’ Mission is a great boat to get out on Superior in and the lake trout were biting pretty good with several over 6 pounds.  Mike was delighted with the catch – for him a first!

If you want an enjoyable fishing trip with a great guy, give Sand Point Charters a call and schedule some time with Captain Brian!  Thanks again from both of us!”

Saturday night and Sunday afternoon Lake Trout out of Copper Harbor

  Fished with Terry and his son-in-law on Saturday night near Horshoe Harbor near Copper Harbor. We could see some nice thermoclines on the sonar at about 140 feet below surface, so we fished below that. 3 Lakers in a couple hours of “rough seas” fishing was not bad. Mark, the son-in-law caught the first […]

Wednesday morning I was supposed to have a charter in Bete Grise, but the weather was not good, so we re-scheduled it for Thursday morning.

Lighthouse sightseeing trip to Huron Island, Granite Island and Stannard Rock

I had several charters to see lighthouses, some with serious lighthouse enthusiasts and some casual tourists who just wanted to see the local sights. One was a 135 mile trip that I wrote a little about before, but I did not have a chance to post pictures until now, on this rainy morning. Mitch and […]

Past 2 Days of fishing on Lake Superior for Coho and Lake Trout

Yesterday we fished with a family of 4 from Traverse City and had a nice day on the water, with very flat seas. The weather was warm and sunny and although we fished for several hours, we only managed to boat 2 small lake trout. My strategy was to go directly to one of my […]

Sightseeing with a little trolling for lakers mixed in near Keweenaw Point

A couple of windy days kept us off of the water, but early today, trolled in close for Coho but had no luck. The boys wanted to try their “hot spot” in the channel, so we stopped therefor 20 minutes and they caught several rock bass. (I hope they remembered to empty them out when […]

Caught 21 total in our Early morning fishing for lake trout in Bete Grise, Keweenaw Peninsula

Left the dock at 6:10 this morning with 2 of my boys as deck hands, John and Bill. We went directly out to the lake trout fishing grounds, since the Coho fishing has been slow lately. Started catching fish almost right away, got slow for a while as we moved off the “spot”, but getting […]
