What to Bring

  • Cooler (40-90 qt) with ice to transport your catch.

  • Food and drinks. Alcohol is allowed, bottles okay but cans are preferred.

  • Warm clothing, it's usually a lot cooler on the water.

  • Sunglasses

  • Sunscreen

  • Rain gear, if rain is in the forecast.

  • Soft-soled shoes

  • If the weather looks warm and you plan on wearing shorts, pack a pair of long pants. Occasionally, ankle biting flies can be a nuisance. Bug spray has little effect.

  • Everyone on board, 16 years of age or older, needs a valid Wisconsin fishing license with a Great Lakes salmon and trout stamp. We do sell a 2-day WI license on board for $14. The 2-day license is good for both residents and non-residents and no stamp is required. Wisconsin Licenses can also be purchased online here: Wisconsin DNR Website
