Deep Water Trolling Fishing Trip

You will be lodged at Black's Bay Lodge on the shores of Lake Huron.  See the details on the lodge here

Arrangements will be made with experienced fishing charter Captains from one or more of the following locations:

  • Providence Bay (2 km. from lodge), currently 8 charter boats operate out of Prov. Bay.
  • South Baymouth (30 min. by car),
  • West Bay (30 min. by car),
  • Gore Bay (45 min. by car),
  • Little Current (60 min. by car), or
  • Meldrum Bay (90 min. by car).

Depending on your desired fish species, time of year, and availability of fishing charter boats, BBay will custom book a charter to fit your needs.

Typically, the charters are 4 hrs. in duration; either morning or afternoon.  You need to supply your own beverages and snacks.  The Charter Captain will supply the boat, gas, rods, tackle, and bait.  Most of these Charter Captains have over 15 years experience in their native waters, and excellent results in the size, quantity, and frequency of finding fish.

The cost of the charters range from CDN$ 250 per 4 hrs. for 4 people, to as high as CDN$ 350  While it is recommended that a maximum of 4 people be booked per boat, some boats are able to take extra people at CDN$ 25 per person.  Usually those not fishing can ride for free if there is room to go.

BBay has package deals available with 7 different Charter Captains, depending on the species fished, port, weather, and local conditions.  Contact BBay for further details, and for us to customize a fishing holiday package for you.

The above costs are in addition to your rental fee for the BBay Fishing Lodge during your stay.
