New Vessels and Top Quality Gear, No Junk!
We offer first-class, low priced Lake Champlain fishing charters on twin 21' PolarKraft Outlander multi-species fishing vessels. They're equipped with quiet, clean 115 horsepower four stroke outboards, and state-of-the-art Minn Kota trolling motors, riggers and electronics. We're properly equipped to troll, jig or power fish (cast). Premium rods and reels are also provided. Unlike the competition, our prices peak at $375 for an eight hour trip. There are no confusing "rates packages", additional person add-ons, or fuel surcharges. $275 four-hour and $325 six-hour trips are also available. Our stable, 8' wide, deep V hulls can easily accommodate parties of four people, but we suggest three or fewer, for safety when casting, and for higher individual catch rates. Group rates with multiple vessels are available. Many wise clients have already reserved their dates! Don't miss your chance to fish with our experienced Captains.
