The Drifters Guide Service invites you to sign up for some of the best fishing in the whole of Northern Michigan. Freshwater areas near Traverse City are great for anglers of all ages and skill levels. If you’ve been looking at possible places to take the whole family along for a fun day of fishing, you’ve come to the right place.
You’ll be fishing from a custom-built Headwater jet boat that comes with a single 150 HP Mercury OptiMax engine. It’s equipped with everything you’ll need for a productive river trip, from a GPS and fishfinder device to a wireless trolling motor for those silent runs. There’s enough room on the boat for up to 3 people and all the fish they land during the trip.
When on a standard trip, you’ll be fishing the Betsie River for as many Salmon and Steelhead Trout as you can manage. It’s a smaller, more intimate river, and you can always count on the fish to give you a run for your money. Salmon season starts in August, while you can expect Steelhead to turn up around November.
Captain Jimmy will provide you with all the necessary rods, reels, and terminal tackle, while it’s up to you to bring a valid freshwater fishing license. His first mate, Matt, will clean and fillet the catch after the trip for your convenience. Don’t miss your chance to join them for a memorable freshwater adventure!
