August 2016: The salmon are being caught in better numbers than earlier this year. I believe that the Morning bite is better than the evening because the morning bite starts in the dark and we get fish for almost 2 hours, and then we target the lake trout. In the evening, most trips don't get their first salmon until after 9pm, and the bite lasts maybe 45 minutes, so we target lake trout when we first go out.


7/30/2016 Robert Brant caught this 20 pound salmon this morning. We had 5 bites and they caught all of them, and had a great coooler full of fish.

You will fish in comfort on board our 29' Cruisers (see pic above). Everyone appreciates the convenience of the head and cabin! There is a bluetooth radio on the boat, so you can play your favorites songs from your devices. I am a professional licensed captain (U.S.C.G.) The boat is inspected and licensed by the US Coast Guard and Michigan Department of Natural Resources. Edventure is equipped with all the safety features.Leonard with a nice king If there is anything we can do to accomodate you, please call me and ask. We want this to be fun and memorable. We watch the marine forecast closely for every trip, and will ask you to re-schedule if we think conditions are unfavorable. Check out the pictures in the photo gallery.

There are some great places to stay in Manistee. This link is to a cottage that you can book in advance, check out their availability online: upnorthgetaway (248) 668-9925 I can personally recommend it highly. The cottage has plenty of space to accommodate large groups, has a complete kitchen, private dock, gas grills, pool table, and fireplace. While relaxing on the deck this spring I watched a bald eagle fly over, as the turkeys were gobbling in the woods across the street! If it is booked, you can also get rooms at the Microtel Inn, or other motels.
