Dietrich’s Sportfishing Charters

Capt. Shane Dietrich Bay City, MI Incorporated Licensed Insured

Bring a personal cooler and spend your day on the Saginaw Bay filling it with some of the freshest fillets you’ll ever get your hands on! Welcome to Dietrich’s Sportfishing Charters where the motto is “Kids Welcome, Adults Tolerated”… Ha! Captain Shane Dietrich brings 25 years of family friendly charter experience to every trip, anglers of all skill levels are welcome aboard!

Docked in the heart of Bay City, Michigan, Captain Shane has access to Saginaw Bay’s world class walleye fishery. Capt. Shane started fishing the Saginaw Bay and its tributaries with his father from an early age, it’s what sparked his passion for the outdoors! Seasoned anglers and newcomers alike will benefit from the enthusiasm Capt. Shane brings to every trip.

Leave your worries at the dock and step aboard Dietrich’s Sportfishing Charter’s 28ft Cherokee with enough room to comfortably accommodate 6 anglers. She’s powered by duel 270hp Crusader engines that’ll quickly get you to and from the fishing grounds. Onboard you’ll find a range of fish finding equipment, giving you every advantage while you’re on the water!

The price for your action packed day on Saginaw Bay includes all of the fishing tackle you’ll need for a successful trip. A seasoned first mate will join your group in the cockpit to help manage the lines, and to make sure everyone on board is feeling comfortable and confident. All you need to bring is a valid fishing license, any drinks or snacks you may want, and an eager attitude! Once you get back to the dock, the Dietrich Sportfishing Charter team will clean and fillet the day’s catch for your group. 15-20% gratuity for the team is very much appreciated!

Enough reading, it’s time to get out on the water! Captain Shane is eager to show you the unmatched fishing opportunities that the Saginaw Bay offers. Fish filled memories and pounds of fresh Walleye fillet are just a couple of clicks away… and don’t forget to ask Capt. Shane about “Catch and Cook”!
