Fished near the point today because this couple wanted to do some sightseeing and I thought I’d bring them to see the Gull Rock Light. We fished for an hour and picked up this laker just as we started to pull lines. We them motored over the the lighthouse, which was in the […]
We're quite a catch!

Thanks for the great charter. Will try to do again next year. Thanks to (deckhand) Doug as well.
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
Thank 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.
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.
Janice, Kathryn, and I truly enjoyed our fishing experience aboard the “Fishin Mission”. Definitely one of the highlights of our vacation. The salmon were great on the grill that evening.
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.
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.
We all enjoyed the time we spent out on the water. The fish tasted great and your son and you both were very enjoyable to be with. We will surely see you again next time we are up that way.

Great trip, hope to get back one of these years!
– Dan Langford (and his wife Ann who planned the surprise) - Pinckney, MichiganWow! 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!”
I added some pictures to this blog… Going out with a man and his wife tomorrow on a fish/sightseeing combo trip. Had 4 charters in the past 4 days leaves no time for blogs. One was sightseeing only, around the point to see 5 lighthouses and 4 fishing charters. Caught 23 fish including 1 king […]
Fished today out of Eagle Harbor with little success. Only 2 lakers caught, but also lost 2 fish. The ‘Scum Line” was almost non-existent even though we caught one in just 20 minutes on Saturday out there. Tried to troll in 3 different places before jigging in close near silver Island. Nothing caught with jigs […]
Spent the weekend at Isle Royalnne with Margaret and her brother Dave and wife Anne. Left on Thursday and back Saturday night. Caught fish all three days and brought home our limit of 12 lakers. Also caught some Coho Salmon. The biggest one was caught by Dave… a 18 pounder and Anne caught a 12 […]
Fished for a couple of hours before a little sightseeing around the point yesterday with a small and happy family. Lost one near the boat before landing two nice lakers. Margaret and I are now taking the next few days or so off to fish some more at Isle Royale. Or maybe it would not […]
Robert and his father Pat fished with us in the morning. They awoke before the birds in order to drive all they way from Iron River, MI, a 3 hour drive with no coffee. It seems that nobody stays open 24 hours anymore. Anyway, it was worth their trip as they caught 7 fish including […]
Fished in the evening with Walt and Lynn and 3 of their kids and caught 2 kings and 2 lake trout in just an hour and 1/2. It was just before dark in about 30 to 50 feet deep. Lots of bait fish showing up too. See the “Gallery” for more photos. Going out with […]
Went fishing a little later this morning and feels like sleeping in. Pushed off at 8 am with a couple from lower Michigan and their college son who is attending Michigan Tech. They wanted to fish Lac La Belle, then take a short ride on the “Big” lake just for the experience. The fishing was […]
Here is the old (small) boat behind Calvin and I… Had a hard time waking the boys this morning, but Calvin finally got up and Stanley slept in. As we were motoring out to the fishing area,(just 1/4 mile out of the irons) I noticed a scum line in the water with a 2.5 degree […]
Another day of FLAT water and 2 species of fish. FAmily of 5 from Ohio, Dan and Angie G. with 13 and 6 year old girls and 4 year old boy caught a steelhead, shown plus 4 lakers. My camera went dead, so I;ll have to rely on them to send me photos to post. […]
