But the waters of our beloved East Bay continue to capture his heart. Captain Collett is a adamant supporter of the Grand Traverse Area Sport Fishing Association. He applauds the GTASFA’s efforts in meeting with the DNR to help regulate responsible fishing. A reasonable limitation on total catches per year will allow a healthy and prolific fishery to continue for decades as well as protecting our waters from invasive species. Competitive by nature, Adam takes every charter trip as a personal challenge; yours will be no exception. A father of two, he takes particular delight in watching the spark in the eye of a child as he or she lands their first big fish. His goal is to teach the youngsters how to fish and love the water all while fishing safely and…with patience!

If there is one thing that I look forward to every year, it's fishing the East Bay with Captain Adam and Benny! I have been fishing with these guys for 6 years now and they have become my friends and fishing buddies. I've had some of the best memories of my life on the Mega-Bite boat. I have learned so much from them throughout the years and appreciate their expertise and dedication to ensuring a great day on the water. Professional, friendly, knowledgable, accommodating, personable and super great guys! Can't wait for next year to book our charter. Thank you captain Adam and Benny for the countless lakers and salmon throughout the years. Always great to see you and learn more from the best there is! I HIGHLY recommend this charter.

Mega-Bite Fishing Charters made our first fishing experience one to remember. My kids are 11 and 10 and will remember this forever. Professional, helpful and would recommend even to my clients as a travel agent.

This was the best part of our one week trip to the Traverse City area. Took my 8 and 10 year old sons along with my dad and brother. We all had a blast! The skipper and first mate were personable, helpful and patient with the young boys. It was laid back, yet we still hooked some BIG lake trout (honestly had no idea that trout could get that big). The owner of the company was also friendly and helpful, keeping in communication with me before the trip from his cell phone to make sure everything was ready for our trip. Safety was also their top priority. If we go back there is no doubt we will use this company again.
