A Michigan fishing license is REQURED and can be acquired at many local retailers or ONLINE (out-of-state visitors can buy a one-day license)

Fish cleaning is included. (fillet, skinned and bagged)

Keep the weather in mind when scheduling, look ahead. We'll talk the night before to confirm & discuss the weather.

I provide all fishing equipment unless other arrangements are made.

There can be a lot of serious hardbait casting involved in bass and walleye fishing. I will work with you if necessary, to improve those skills.

Cancellations could occur due to family emergencies, medical appointments, or weather. I will reschedule as best as I can.

Due to space and practical considerations I recommend 1-2 people only, however you may add up to 4 total at $50.00 each.

The importance of catch & release is stressed with Bass.

You never know what you might catch — a big pike, a walleye, bass or maybe a nice trout.

A fish cleaning station is located at the Boyne City boat ramp on beautiful Lake Charlevoix, Boyne-area bait shops are listed under Resources to the right.

 UV can be intense on the lakes (even on cloudy days), I recommend you bring a high SPF sunscreen.
