Fish N Fowl Guide Service

Come out and enjoy a fishing trip on beautiful Lake Michigan! Fish N Fowl Guide Service is based out of Chinook Pier in downtown Grand Haven.

Capt. Sam will use his knowledge and equipment to make sure you have a fun-filled and, hopefully, fish-filled adventure! The trips are 5 or 7 hours and are offered in the morning and in the afternoon, depending on when you want to go. The main targets while trolling on Lake Michigan are Salmon, Lake Trout, and Steelhead. Upon returning to port, all fish are cleaned, bagged, and iced down to travel home.

Your journey starts aboard a 30’ Tiara Yacht that can fit 6 guests. On board, there are plenty of accommodations to keep you comfortable, including a private bathroom. The vessel is loaded with top-notch fishing equipment to help you land your catch. All fishing gear is included in the cost. All you need to bring is whatever snacks and drinks you would like for your trip.

A fishing license is required and can be purchased online. Children are welcome aboard. The crew is well-experienced and knowledgeable to help you enjoy your adventure on the lake.

Join Fish N Fowl Guide Service for your next fishing adventure!
