Smallmouth Bass Fishing North of the 45th

vantage009Sight fish the majestic flats of Northern Michigan on Lake Michigan and Lake Huron for smallmouth bass fishing, carp, freshwater drum, northern pike, and musky. We also offer angling opportunities to catch lake run browns, steelhead and huge bright silver chinook salmon… join us in the fall for some fantastic runs as they stage for their fall spawning migration. We are strategically located near the tip of Michigan’s lower peninsula, in the midst of the most beautiful Great Lakes flats and inland waterways, north of the 45th parallel, notably the best location in these salt-free seas for large and plentiful smallmouth & carp fishing. Poling silently through crystal clear water flats, you will find nothing short of a Caribbean-like experience in our gorgeous northern climate. We are minutes from Ernest Hemingway’s famous summer retreat.
