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.

As we all know (or maybe you don't) this winter in Northern Vermont on Lake Champlain has seen some below average temperatures, creating thick ice on the lake.
We have had very little difficulties getting around.

The weather was 20 degrees with nearly no wind to speak of.
Here we are setting up tip-ups, are target fish was Northern Pike.

In a short amount of time we were chasing flags, fish on!!

We had out 28 tip-ups which left us a little time to jig.

My electronics proved to stand true with the yellow perch bite.
This devise is a Lowrance Elite X4 ice machine, great product.

Another flag up!

The Captain got a good look at this one!!

Fish fry at the Captain's house.

This was the view on last look for the day.
With the ice being so thick we should be getting out for more ice fishing through the end of March.
Contact me if you would like to experience ice fishing on Lake Champlain.
Currently booking ice fishing and open water charters, don't miss out on the 2014 season.
Thanks for stopping by.
