New Season Awaits
Posted by Captain Jeff on Jun 5, 2013
Had great fishing in Florida and hope the 2013 salmon season is similar.  The boat's in the water, gear rigged and tested, and many returning clients have already made their reservations for another adventure on the water.  Many thanks to those that support my business efforts. 

Spent a few hours last evening scouting around the lake.  A few pods of baitfish were marked, but no signs of hungry predators yet.  The water remains quite cold (42 degrees at 30 FOW)  and the next few days will continue to be below average temps as well.  Everyone anxiously awaits the return of the fish.  Let's hope they arrive soon.  

Hook up with me and I'll show you my best effort.  Hope to hear from you.  
A Winning Team - A Winning Meal
Posted by Captain Jeff on Aug 31, 2012
Brad and Jeremiah enjoyed a wonderful day together on the water.  They followed that up with an outstanding meal at the Gordon Lodge Resort where "Catch and Cook" resulted in Cherry BBQ and Carribean Jerk with Mango Sauce salmon entrees awaited them.  It doesn't get fresher or better than that.  Give a call to Fish Tales and try it for yourself!
Lady Luck Prevails

A major cold front with NE winds meant warm water and slow fishing for Kevin and his three daughters.  Kidding and cajoling carried this crew through the slow period and it appeared the night was going to be a dud.  Suddenly the fish turned on and these three anglers responded with well developed rod handling skills.  Fortunately for the salmon we ran out of daylight.  Cudos to dad who enjoyed watching his girls in action. 
Family Memories - sharing time together
Posted by Captain Jeff on Aug 2, 2012
This family of recent anglers experienced great action on a 3 hour evening trip.  Grandpa (Wilbur), son-in-law (Alan), and grandkids (Greta & Isaac) caught fish, while Lynn (mother) assisted the captain in the boat duties.  Fast action resulted in great memories. 
Warm water conditions continue on the lake.

Mark and Heather Mullane, two Viking fans from our neighboring state, joined me today in search of chinooks.  Reduced air temperatures and less humidity provided angler comfort, but warm water continues to be present along the western shore.  With water temps in the mid 60's 70 feet below the surface the fish are scattered.  In addition the easterly winds are pushing large pockets of water with varying temperatures to and fro - resulting in tough fishing.  Despite these challenges these anglers landed two nice kings and a shaker this morning - with several releases included.  Hopefully the action will improve tomorrow evening when we venture out together once more.
Welch family fun

This father -son duo recently enjoyed a great fishing outing aboard Fish Tales.  Their catch was good, but their growing companionship was even better.  You can see in the picture that there will be many stories told about this fishing trip in the years to come.  For now, it appears that the son has the upper hand! 

Give me a call and we can discuss your next family adventure trip.
Frick Family Fun
Posted by Captain Jeff on Jun 11, 2012
Fish Tales provided the Steven Frick family a new and thrilling experience as they fought the southerly winds and chinooks during a mid-afternoon charter yesterday.  Although the trip was shortened due to rough conditions, we found fish in 44 degree waters that were active and hungry.  These fish were much larger than the 2-3lb. catfish these anglers fight in their local waters. 
Lake conditions remain prime for lots of action during this early season start.  Give me a call and let's "hook up". 
Great Fishing Continues
Posted by Captain Jeff on Jun 8, 2012
Enjoyed some free time by taking my buddy, John Koehler, for an early afternoon outing.  Fish don't bite during the day - right?  "Hog Wash" as we went 7 for 7 during sunny, calm conditions.  Decided to have the "Catch and Cook" meal at Gordon Lodge with my true first mate.  Excellent!!
Considering Salmon Fishing - Now's the Time
Posted by Captain Jeff on Jun 6, 2012
Fishing with the Todd family yesterday AM resulted in great action for this Illinois pair.  Several chinook and steelhead boated while a few were missed.  Action continues to be very good despite this full moon period  - a testiment to the numbers of hungry fish around.  So, if you have an inkling to spend time on the water - do not hesitate.  June fishing is awesome in these northern Door waters.  Let's hook up!
Great Way to Start the 2012 Season
Posted by Captain Jeff on May 29, 2012
Johan and Gi Gi from the Chicago area joined me on this year's "shake-down" cruise.  Reports stated that fish were likely present.  Water temps cooled to the upper 40 degree range at all depth levels over night.  We tried shallow depths and the fish were present.  Good numbers and good size of kings, with 1 steelhead added to the mix.  This couple experienced a great early season trip and ended their Memorial Weekend with a cooler full of fish!
