Sight fish the majestic flats of Northern Lake Michigan and Lake Huron for smallmouth bass, 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 the great lakes for large and plentiful carp fishing. Poling silently through crystal clear water flats, you will find nothing short of a carribean like experience in our gorgeous northern climate. We are minutes from Ernest Hemingway’s famous summer retreat.Join us on our new Vantage flats boat by East Cape Skiff, designed and fully equipped to handle the waters of the Great Lakes. Powered by a 115 HP Evinrude Etech HO, we will quickly get to the prime locations, then pole steathfully in inches deep flats with fishes backs and tails out of the water as our hunt begins.
