Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How many people can The Trio have aboard.
A: The trio is a large fishing vessel that is capable of holding six customers as well as the crew. We recommend that you have 4 person groups because it gives better odds at people catching more fish. If the group is larger than 6 people we can arrange to have another boat added to meet your needs.

Q: Do we fish in the rain?
A: Yes, we will fish in the rain. Fish don’t care what the weather is doing up top. They love it wet so it does not matter if it is raining.

Q: Is tipping appropriate?
A: We feel that our extra effort warrants gratitude. What the customer wants to tip is totally up to them but traditionally 15-20% of the price of the trip is customary.

Q: What else is there to do in the area?
A: Algoma and the surrounding area have plenty for you to do to make your trip the best ever.
