Captain Dave Gumtow and Dave Hija have over 25 years experience on northern Lake Huron and the “Emma J” Charter Fishing Boat is a great lakes “state of the art”, long range, battle cruiser awaiting to make your vacation dreams come true.

The crew is well seasoned, be it on the great lakes for salmon or trout, or off the LaGuira Banks of Venezuela for Blue or White Marlin. Whether fishing in Kona, Hawaii, in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, as far north as Star North Northern Canada, or down to Los Roque or Caraballeda, Venezuela where Dave has lived for 5 years during the winter, he has scored many a grand slam and super slams.

Evening trips off Mackinac island are a sight to behold.  The lights off the Mackinaw bridge and city are just beautiful.  The sunsets are pretty awesome too.
