Your Captain is a native Vermonter and has spent years on the waters of Lake Champlain. Captain Pete lives on a tiny island called Isle La Motte in the Lake Champlain Islands Region.

United States Coast Guard - 50 Ton Master Captain/Peter Murray's mission is to provide a safe and productive experience aboard the Missy Jean.

Let the Captain's experience be your guide for not only a day of great fishing but fantastic views of our breathtaking mountains, with the Adirondack Mountains to the West and the Green Mountains to the East.

The Captain's obvious love and respect for the lake and its offerings is the driving force behind much of the activity on board.

Today was the first day out with the Missy Jean for the 2013 season.
What a shake down it turned out to be!

After several days of getting the boat ready, new top with side curtains, boat and trailer serviced for the new season, a few new toys added and some items replaced that were not working so good at end of last season.
Happy to report everything was flawless including the fishing.

I hit the water at 6:00 am on the East Shore of Isle La Motte.  
Looking for certain water temperatures that would produce some fish,  I found the lake trout  in approx. 25 feet of water, 13 feet down, with a surface temperature of 48 degrees.  
These are just a few photos of the fish I caught for the day, the catch was; 15 lakers, weighing 7-9 lbs.

I had plans to fish with my friend Justin, he could not make it today, maybe next time Justin!

I sure was challenged fishing by myself, reeling and netting these fish alone sure was fun indeed.


Blue/silver seemed to be the favorite for the day.

The waters were calm for most of the day.  It was a beautiful day here on the Island.  
First 70 degree day sense last year.

Here she is, ready to go for yet another year.
Won't you come join me, Lake Champlain Trout Scout Charters for a day of fishing on the great waters of Lake Champlain?

I would like to thank Kevin and Pam for the pictures they took of me and the boat from a distance out on the water, great photos, thanks guys!
Thanks for stopping by.
Captain Pete
