Take the whole family on private fishing charter on the popular and scenic Whitefish Lake. Let your local, experienced guide show you the where the biggest fish are biting on waters they've been fishing for over a decade! Spend your day on a comfortable 22ft pontoon boat (for larger groups up to 6 adults and 2 children) or a deep hull fishing boat (up to 4 adults and 2 children) allowing plenty of comfortable room for everyone on board.

Docked at the marina of the beautiful Lodge at Whitefish Lake your fishing experience will include all necessary equipment, snacks and beverages, as well as a complimentary filet of your catch to bring home a cook up for dinner (fishing licenses not included). Not only will you get to jig, troll and spin for Lake Trout and Northern Pike, you'll get gorgeous views of the magnificent home on Whitefish Lake and the surrounding peaks including Whitefish Mountain.

No summer vacation in Montana is complete without some time in the water, so be sure to pack you swimsuits! A jump off the boat into Whitefish Lake is one of the best ways to cool down on a warm summer day. You're also more than welcome to pack any of your own additional food or alcholic beverages for your lake day.
