Cooler (40-90 qt) with ice to transport your catch
Please know coolers with wheels are allowed on board. However, they are not the best idea on a boat. They tend to roll around a lot if there are waves that day.
Food and drinks. Alcohol is allowed, bottles okay but cans are preferred
Warm clothing, it’s usually a lot cooler on the water
Rain gear, if rain is in the forecast
Soft-soled shoes. Cowboy boots not a good idea, I’ve seen this before.
If the weather looks warm and you plan on wearing shorts, pack a pair of long pants. Occasionally, ankle biting lake flies can be a nuisance. Bug spray has little effect.
Everyone on board, 16 years of age or older, needs a valid Wisconsin fishing license with a Great Lakes salmon and trout stamp. We do sell a 2-day WI license on board for $14. The 2-day license is good for both residents and non-residents and no stamp is required. Wisconsin Licenses can also be purchased online here: Wisconsin DNR Website
