Best Chance Too at Detroit Metro West Steelheaders


Best Chance Too recently spoke at a seminar for the Detroit Metro West Steelheaders. It was another full house that both supports our fishery and had great questions about the products we use. It was an honor to speak to long lasting and dedicated fishermen. There are over 200 strong in the Detroit Metro West Steelheader chapter.  - Capt. Dave Engel
Best Chance Too wins Manistee Salmon Splash and Big Boys Only
Best Chance Too wins First Place in Salmon Splash as well as Big Boys Only Super Splash at Tournament Week in Manistee. The competition is always fierce in Manistee and this year was no exception. Limit catches were common and the fish were large. With a large lead after the first day, the Best Chance Too team was able to hold off the second place boat by just one pound on Day Two.  - Capt Dave Engel
BCT 2nd in Muskegon!
Best Chance Too takes second in the Muskegon Salmon Shoot Out.  Fishing was very tough there and Team BCT had to make a 30 mile run each way both days to find the fish.  After making the run, we caught our limit in less than one hour both days. Great job, team!  - Capt. Dave Engel

Best Chance Too WINS 2010 Grand Haven Offshore Challenge
Extremely tough fishing conditions for the 2010 Grand Haven Offshore Challenge proved to be very favorable for the Best Chance Too team.  Not only were the catches very small, but the lake was extremely rough on Day Two. In the field of 96 boats, BCT was one of the few boats that could make the 17 mile run uphill, then managed to catch a limit and return to port early. Charging from seventh place after Day One to take the Day Two lead, and then holding it while all the top boats came in with one, two, three, or four fish, BCT was able to captialize on their experience to take the win!  After listening to all the horror stories of equipment failure from other boats, it was definitely a weekend to prove who had the best gear.  With no failures on the Best Chance Too, and great team work, the results speak for themselves.  - Capt. Dave Engel
BCT takes 5th Graders fishing for Salmon in the Classroom
Best Chance Too and other members of the Saugatuck Area Charterboat Association took 73 fifth-graders fishing in mid-May following up on their annual Salmon in the Classroom project. We caught 173 fish in just a few hours. The kids and the teachers were ecstatic. There were nine sportswriters, four newspapers and three television stations covering this event.  This outing was a great thing for the Saugatuck school system, as the Saugatuck Area Charterboat Association works to bring awareness to our industry. The Saugatuck fishing tournament committee then provided a fish fry for all the captains and kids.  It was a great outing for the kids, and the continuous support of our sponsors makes these kinds of events possible!  Thank You!  - Capt. Dave Engel
