Rebels' Retreat Sportfishing Llc

Bordering 4 of the Great Lakes, Michigan offers incredible freshwater fishing. With Rebels’ Retreat, you’ll straddle the Michigan-Huron border, hitting the Straits of Mackinac. Heading off from Mackinaw City, you’ll be fishing in less than 30 minutes, reeling in delicious and exciting fish. Captain Mark Piavis has fished the Straits for over 40 years, and recently turned his passion into a profession. He loves meeting new people and promises a friendly atmosphere on board.

You’ll be casting from a comfortable, spacious 28’ Albemarle offshore sportfishing boat. With plenty of space for up to 4 anglers to fish at once, you’ll also be made to feel at home from the get go. She’s a serious fishing vessel but doesn’t skimp on home comforts. There’s a toilet, shower, bed, kitchen, fridge, and stereo system to use at your leisure. Powered by twin 300 HP Mercruiser engines, you’ll speed off along the water with the wind in your hair.

Like all over the Lakes, Salmon and Trout reign supreme in the Straits. Go after Chinook and Coho Salmon, Steelhead, Lake and Brown Trout, as well as Walleye. You’re in for a big test to reel in one of these tricky customers. They’re sure to put up a fight, but it will be worth it when you serve it up at the end of the day. Try trolling with dead bait or artificial lures to attract the bite, before reeling it in with the latest gear.

The captain and first mate will do anything to put your safety and fishing experience first, so don’t hesitate to ask any questions you may have. Families and first-timers are welcome, and Capt. Mark just loves seeing the thrill on someone’s face when they make their first catch. Hop aboard and get hooked with Rebels’ Retreat. Explore northern Michigan’s remote, untouched beauty now. Book, buy your fishing license, and get on your way!
