Charter Fishing
Catch & Cook


Manistee, Michigan is consistently one of the most productive ports on the Great Lakes from spring to fall. We have two river systems, the Big and Little Manistee. Both rivers produce the majority of natural fish that enter Lake Michigan, and in addition the rivers receive supplemental plants of salmon and trout.

The proximity of Manistee offers great structure, just 3 miles offshore, we have a sharp drop off, this steep sheer sets up an area which holds fish all year long. This is one reason Manistee Michigan is home to many fishing tournaments and state records.


Many restaurants in the area offer a “catch and cook” program which allows you to enjoy the day on the water with one of our excellent charter captains and enjoy a perfectly prepared dinner that evening.

The following restaurants participate:
