We had a great time. There were 4 of us. We've been fishing before and not caught too much with other places. This time we had soo many fish. We had some for dinner and gave some away. Lake trout and some whitefish. It was one of the best things we did on vacation.

Ben offered an alternative option, we caught our limit of lake trout plus two nice size salmon!!! Each year we bring back enough fish to have a fish fry at the campground to feed everyone... More

Being our first time out on a fishing charter, we did not know what to expect. Fifteen minutes from leaving the dock, we knew we were in for a good time. Captain Ben's personality and knowledge made the day both enjoyable and successful. His ability to locate where the fish were biting, setting our lines and bringing the fish in,... More

We have been fishing in Traverse City for quite a few years and have chartered numerous fishing excursions, but as soon as we went "catching" with Captain Ben we knew there wouldn't be searching anymore. We have been out fishing with Captain Ben on days when the other charter boats came back with one or two fish and we were... More

For five years, my uncles, cousins, and I have fished on the Daydreamer with Captain Ben. He provides a great experience. Over ten years ago, we started a yearly fishing charter, so we have fished with captains from the Detroit area as well as the west side of the Michigan. Ben, by far, has kept us coming back because of... More

I've been on many charters with captain Ben over the past few years and I've yet to leave disappointed. He works very hard, is very knowledgeable, and always puts fish in the boat. Even on nights when we've come back with only 5 or 6, when you get back to the docks and ask around, most only caught 1 or... More

I have been on several charters in Michigan and for the most part all the Captains will put you on fish. They clean them and off you go to find the nearest grill to consume your catch. For the most part they have all been enjoyable and relaxing.....until I fished with Captain Orr. OMG, if your looking for a relaxing... More
