TC Bass Destination Charters and Guide Norvel Derickson bid you a warm welcome to Traverse City. Chasing the nationally known Bass in the northwestern Michigan area is the guide’s passion and he is ready to share his knowledge of the Grand Traverse Bay and the numerous inland lakes in the area with you. Bass fishing in the area is has become full-scale and is regarded as some of the best in the country. Numbers of Bass are always available and a true trophy fish may hit on your very next cast, so come aboard and fish with TC Bass Destination Charters!
Your trip will start on a 21’ Ranger Z521 bass boat that can accommodate 3 anglers. Running on a powerful 250 HP Yamaha SHO engine that can reach a maximum cruising speed of 65 knots, the boat will quickly take you to the desired spots. For safe and efficient navigation, the boat uses modern Lowrance HDS fishfinder and GPS systems, as well as a VHF radio. In order to make a quieter approach to the fish, the boat has got a wireless trolling motor.
You and your guide will use light tackle to target Smallmouth Bass by bottom fishing, spinning, and jigging. Kids are free to join the trip, alcohol is not allowed, and some of the fish will have to be released due to the local regulations.
Guide Norvel will take care of all the tackle, lures, snacks, and drinks, meaning that the only thing you should bring is your fishing license.
Come to Traverse City and have a memorable lake fishing trip with TC Bass Destination Charters!
