A Grand Addiction Guide Service

There is only one way to fish rivers and lakes in Michigan, and that is with Captain Nick Godwin of A Grand Addiction Guide Service. The reason this will be the perfect trip for you? Because Capt. Nick is all about getting you on the fish and having a great fishing adventure. He will go out of his way to give you the best service and the best day.

You’ll spend the day on board an 18’ Skinny Water custom built boat, that is the perfect size for you and your fishing buddy. Whether you bring along your child, your best friend, or even your boss, you and one other are sure to have an awesome fishing experience.

This fabulous little boat will get you onto the fish before you know it, with its 60 HP engine, fishfinder, and a fantastic captain. On the menu are Coho Salmon, Musky, Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Crappie, Perch, Pike, Rainbow Trout, and more. If you’re lucky, there will even be some Chinook Salmon too!

There is no minimum age for kids. Capt. Nick leaves it up to the parents to decide if their little ones are ready to start fishing. They will definitely have some great stories to tell their friends once back at school.

You’ll use a range of techniques, which means that whatever your level of experience there will be something for you. Whichever technique you try, the correct rods and reels will be provided for you. These won’t let you down when you are reeling in your dream catch. Live bait is also included, giving you the best chance of catching your trophy fish.

You are welcome to bring along some snacks and drinks, but please don’t forget your fishing license on the day!

Capt. Nick can’t wait to welcome you on board and start making some amazing fishing memories together.

Member since December 2014
My name is Nick Godwin, and I have a fishing addiction. Growing up in the country, I was a kid who naturally loved the outdoors. Whether it was chasing chipmunks around grandma's farm with my BB gun or catching frogs & grasshoppers to go fishing with. Fishing was always a passion of mine but Steelheading took it to an entirely different level. The passion soon turned into an obsession, which became an addiction. Which lead to the present and me being a licensed/insured fishing guide here in Michigan. Not only do I fish and guide for Steelhead I also love fishing and guiding for other species such as Bass, Musky, and even those tasty Panfish!
