“Howe” we do it…

Montana is Spanish for “Mountains”. Owners, Mike and Cindy Howe, invite you to experience Montana from the water. On Flathead Lake, that means fishing and touring on some of the newest, roomiest and comfortable boats on the lake. All of our vessels are inspected annually by the local US Coast Guard Auxiliary. Your safety and comfort is our top priority.

Mike with a Large Lake Trout Pulled From Flathead Lake
Flathead Lake is BIG water. That also means BIG trophy Lake Trout, or Mackinaw, as they are sometimes called. For most customers, these fish represent the biggest freshwater fish they have ever caught. And, you might just catch your trophy, and memory of a lifetime! The goal of every A Able guided fishing trip is your utmost satisfaction.

It doesn’t stop at Flathead Lake

Touring, Exploring and more…

Cindy and Mike also understand that our area offers a variety of fishing opportunities quite unique to the West. And they have those covered unlike anyone else.

Open water

Flathead Lake Evening
We get it. Not everyone wants to fish. So we take the time to know and understand our area beyond what is required to just go catch fish. And if you have taken advantage of one of the many Flathead Lake vacation rentals, we just might be ‘able’ to pick you up on your dock!
A Able at Painted Rocks
Maybe you just want to take a twilight boat ride to cool off after a day on the golf course. Or walk where wild horses and bighorn sheep walk while the eagles and ospreys soar overhead.Let us show you the historic petroglyphs on the “Painted Rocks” and what a 78 million dollar island estate looks like. Our Flathead Lake scenic tours go at your pace, highlighting unique features and the stories behind them.There is also the opportunity to watch the Montana Dragon Boat races in September or the weekly sailboat races in the summer. How about a bachelorette or anniversary brunch on one of the smaller islands? When it comes to thinking outside the “tourist” box, you need only think “A Able” …and let us do the rest.

We hope you enjoy exploring our website, and we look forward to hearing from you soon. Your Northwest Montana adventure begins here, with A Able Fishing Charters and Tours!
