It's History (His-story)

The first book of the bible is called Genesis. Genesis is a historical account of how God created all things including man kind in just 7 days.

  • Day 1: God spoke and created the heavens, the earth and light.
  • Day 2: He created the sky to separate the water
  • Day 3: He made all the land, plants with seeds, plants with fruit with seeds
  • Day 4: He made the sun, the moon and the stars
  • Then we come to the the 5th day of creation after everything has been made just right for animals to survive. This is when God creates all the creatures of the sea and of the air...

    And God said, “Let the waters swarm with swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the heavens.” So God created the great sea creatures and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarm, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. And God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.” And there was evening and there was morning, the fifth day.
    Genesis 1:20-23 ESV

    A Purpose

    We believe that every time you embark on a journey into God's creation it is about more than catching that trophy fish or getting a great picture to share on social media. God created everything before he created us, not because it is more important, but because he was creating it for us. This is our playground. He put us here to take care of it and to have fellowship with it. There is something special about putting your hands on a piece of creation that is just doing what it was designed to do and it helps connect us back to our purpose...what we were designed to do.

    Come take an Adventure into the 5th Day of Creation.

    Captain Tim Jeleniowski

    In the Beginning

    Tim's love for fishing was evident at a very young age! His family often tells the story of how they would find a pair of shoes along side the road followed soon by some socks, then sure enough there he would be on the side of a local pond fishing away. Back then it was push button a push button Zebco and worms dug up from under a rock. Today he is a skilled outdoors man experienced with many types of fishing weather it's light spinning tackle, conventional trolling gear, fly gear or spear fishing, Tim has worked with it all.
    Whether you are an experienced angler yourself or barely know what a fish is he loves to pass his passion on to guests on his charter trips.

    Passing it On

    A true outdoor enthusiast, whether it's from camping to climbing, cycling to paddle sports, hiking to hunting, and of course fishing, Tim has always enjoyed being connected to nature. Tim now loves to also share his passion for the outdoors with others. Adults, families and children are all welcome on charter. There nothing better than seeing the expression on a child's face when they catch a fish. Even if it's a little one it's always the biggest fish they've ever caught!

    The best way to preserve our resources is to teach our children to have a love and respect for them as well. Then one day, when they grow up they to they to will pass it on.
