North Bay Charters

Capt. Tom Arlington Harsens Island, MI Incorporated Licensed Insured

Yes, It’s True!!! Southeastern Michigan is the Muskie and Walleye Capital of the entire country! Some of the finest sport fishing is right here in Lake St. Clair, Lake Huron, and connecting waterways. Picture this… inviting water, along with a well-maintained vessel,” North Bay LLC”, an experienced captain with over 40 years knowledge of the waters, and a limit of walleye, perch, bass and trout/salmon, or a trophy muskie, are memories to last a lifetime!

The chartered fishing adventure of your life is waiting for you HERE! Everything is furnished. But if you rather use your favorite fishing gear, that’s fine too. We fish where the fish are and are not afraid to move, here are some of the ports that we are going to use:  Harsens Island is my main port, but we fish other ports that have “HOT” fishing. We also have a drift boat to fish the Huron and Clinton rivers.

Your Lake St. Clair fishing charter will be a day to remember with North Bay Charters and Captain Tom Arlington! Your group are welcome to board the 24’ Sport Fisherman with 220 HP Ford v8 engine. Downriggers are onboard for our trolling of Perch, Pike or more. We also go bottom fishing, drift fishing, jigging, fly fishing, or fishing with light tackle. All fishing gear, bait, and lures is provided in the cost of the trip.

Captain Tom’s goal is for a safe and successful day of fishing in Michigan. All Safety Equipment is Certified by the U.S. Coast Guard, and we are accessible for wheelchairs. For a comfortable day of fishing (most trips are about 6 hours on the water) we do have a head (toilet) on the boat. No matter the age of our angler, we’ll make sure you are well taken care of!

North Bay Charters and Captain Tom have the reputation of putting their customers on the fish, and providing a professional, five-star fishing St. Clair experience. Come to the Muskie and Walleye Capital of the world, fish with the best, and go home with memories of a lifetime! Dates book fast so be sure to book your next trip… don’t wait!
