A place of many good fishing spots, Lake Michigan not only offers a wide range of freshwater species to catch but is also distinguished by beautiful nature and rich marine life. Captain Nick Kandes will take you to the best spots on the lake and make sure you have a lovely time on the water and return with a fine catch. Join him and explore the beauties of fishing in Manistee, Michigan!

Your trip will start on a 31’ Tiara 3100 Open offshore sport fishing boat. It runs on two 270 HP 350 Crusader engines with a maximum cruising speed of 25 knots and can sit up to 6 anglers. The boat’s got a full-featured navigation system, toilet, refrigerator, and downriggers.

As for the needed gear, you’re covered with rods, reels, tackle, and lures. Captain Nick will also clean and fillet your catch free of charge. You should just bring your licenses, food, and drinks.
