Frequently Asked Questions Q:  How many people can we have on our charter? A:  We are able to accommodate up to 6 guests on the “We’re On!”   Although we have a lot of extra space the United States Coast Guard limits the number of passengers on a charter to 6.  Q:  Where can I purchase a Great Lake Fishing Stamp and Fishing License? A:  You can purchase your two day Great Lakes Fishing Stamp and License online through the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources or Bay Lake Charters carries two day licenses on the boat.  Charter Packages have licenses included. Q:  What time will we leave the dock? A:  We typically leave the dock an hour before sunrise to ensure that we get in on the morning bite of the King Salmon, but will leave anytime your group wishes.  If we have an afternoon charter booked, we need to be back in before the scheduled departure time of the next trip.  Please discuss this with Captain Adam when booking.  Afternoon charters leave the dock at noon. Q:  Do we fish in the rain? A:  Yes, the fish still bite in the rain, but it’s ultimately your choice, if you want to hold off on leaving the dock until after the rain passes. Captain Adam will work with groups to reschedule, if he feels the inclement weather is making it unsafe to be on the water. Q: Does the boat provide a covered seating area? A: Yes, the cabin of the boat is enclosed and our onboard generator allows us to control the heat and AC during trips. Q: Is there a restroom on the boat? A: Yes. Only marine grade paper products are to be flushed in the onboard toilet. Any heavy items such as paper towel or feminine hygiene products will clog the septic system making it unusable.  Trash receptacles are provided and should be used for these items. Q: Can we bring food and (alcoholic) drinks? A: Absolutely. We kindly ask that you be mindful of food items that are brought onboard and try not to bring anything that is generally messy or creates a lot of crumbs, and please be respectful of the boat and clean-up after yourself. Trash bags are provided. No glass. Alcohol should be consumed in moderation and unruly behavior will not be tolerated. Illicit drugs are not allowed. Q: I sometimes get motion sickness… what can I do to prevent this or help the situation if I start to feel ill on the boat? A: You should always consult your physician first, but many clients find it helpful to take an over-the-counter medication to prevent motion sickness (i.e., Dramamine, Bonine) before it starts. Experience has shown that it’s helpful to allow the medication to work in your system well before boarding the boat. Some other tips: Make sure you have food in your stomach. Soda crackers and Ginger Ale can be lifesavers. Avoid excessive alcohol, avoid strong food odors; choose a seat where you experience the least motion, do not sit facing backwards; do not read on the boat if you’re prone to motion sickness; and it may help to keep your gaze on a fixed point such as the horizon. We do provide motion sickness bags on the boat for your use. Please be respectful and clean- up any messes. Q:  What do we do with our fish between trips? A:  You can take your fish with you between trips and store on ice in a cooler.  Captain Adam can otherwise make arrangements to get your fish commercially vacuum sealed and prepared for you to pick up the next day. Q:  Is tipping appropriate? A:  Tipping 15-20% is customary in the charter industry. Captain Adam and his first mate will go out of their way to make sure that your charter is a success and provide you with services that other companies will not.  Q:  What else does the Algoma area have to offer? A:  Being just 15 miles south of Door County and 30 miles east of Green Bay, there is an abundance of activity surrounding Algoma. We recommend checking out Door County Visitor Bureau and Trip Advisor - Door County. Some of our favorites are visiting Lambeau Field (Home of the Green Bay Packers), Peninsula State Park, Fish Creek, the many beaches, wineries, and tourist attractions of Door County. Captain Adam has great recommendations and can help you plan your perfect vacation.
