Grand Traverse Bay Fishing Report

The Bay is obviously too cold right now, but we look forward to seeing it heat up in June!  Until then, here is some great general information.


Carp fishing is challenging with all the bass boats flying around.  Precise presentation is the key to success.  Covering a lot of water is key as these fish are feeding one day and gone the next. With the high water levels this year and colder water temps, carp fishing should gain some momentum in the weeks to come as the bass pressure subsides and temps rise.

Best Flies

Best flies for carp right now are small to medium crayfish, hybrids, and leaches.  If you are looking to hookup with some hard fighting smallies or sight fish to golden bones, give us a call and get a day in the books!  231-228-7135
