FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS >>
Feel free to call us (906-892-8277) with any questions you may have.
Where are you located?
We are located on the shores of Lake Superior in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Our dock is halfway between Marquette and Munising in Shelter Bay at Kimar's Resort and Charters, directly across from Deer Lake roadside park in Alger County. Our location is best found on google maps by typing in "Kimar's Charters".
Do I need a fishing license?
Anyone 17 and over will need a Michigan Fishing license. You can purchase a seasonal license or a 1-day fishing license. Please visit the DNR website for more information or their E-license page to purchase a license online.
What do I need to bring?
We recommend you bring at least the following: fishing license, warm clothing, sunglasses, hat, soft-soled shoes, food and drinks, and a cooler & ziplock bags for your fish. All fishing equipment is provided, but you're welcome to bring along your own rod!
How do I make a reservation?
Reservations are recommended, but not required. Many full-day charters are booked (up to a year prior) in advance. Half-day trips can usually be booked within a day in advance. Give us a call and we'll take care of everything!
What if the weather is bad?
Our #1 goal is to give you the best fishing experience. We ask all customers to call after 6 pm the night before your charter to talk to Captain Dave about weather conditions. If the weather conditions are not favorable, we can reschedule the trip, or if necessary, cancel it.
Do you have a restroom onboard?
There is a portable toilet on each boat, but we recommend using our public restroom on shore before your charter.
Is fish cleaning available?
Fish filleting and ice are available at the dock. Don't forget to bring your cooler!
How do I make deposits and payments?
Depending on the situation, we may ask for a deposit for reservations. Payments can be made with cash, check, or Visa/Mastercard. Again, feel free to call for information.
How many people can the boat take out?
Per Coast Guard regulations, we can take a maximum of 6 people per boat. However, with our fleet of charter boats, we can take multiple boats out per group.
