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!

Had a great experience with Captain Craig and First Mate Jacob fishing the East Bay for Lake Trout. We caught our limit (10), enjoyed being on the water, and were very happy with how our 8 and 12 year old boys were treated. We brought sandwiches and beer for the trip and enjoyed the ride and conversation with Captain Craig between catching fish. We were scheduled for four hours but had to end 30 minutes early because we were at our limit in lake trout! This was our second year with Mega-Bite Fishing and the second year that we were with Jacob. We had great success the first year as well, bringing home three king salmon and two lake trout. Both years the boys had a great time as Jacob showed them how everything worked and told them what to look for on the fish finder. Mega-Bite Fishing is now part of our annual outings when family come to Traverse City to visit.

Benny and Austin were amazing for us and our 13 year old. Taught us lots, had lots of laughs, they were kind, AND we caught our lake trout limit. Benny’s approach to fishing, his commitment to the fishery and his knowledge are second to none. I have a great appreciation for his respect of the whole. Made our kiddo want to be a deckhand and showed lots of the tricks. We will be return guests!

The trip was easy to book and Adam was fast at replying to my questions. Our guides put us right on the fish! The four of us enjoyed the knowledge of our guides, the excitement of all of us catching our limit in lake trout! Ended the night with a beautiful sunset. Added plus, nice facilities at the harbor. Would do it again in a heartbeat!

Had a great time with Captain Benny and Austin. They took extra good care of my 5 and 7 year old who had never been fishing before. My boys can’t wait to come back and fish with Benny and Austin again. Will certainly be back!
