What anglers said about fishing in Manistee

Manistee is a good place to base a fishing charter. The town offers everything you need but still has a "small town" atmosphere. The Manistee Hotel is a good place to overnight before a morning charter.

Lake fishing was great, did a river fishing trip, not much fish caught, but scenery was more than great. Would do again.

It can be quite cold out there even in the middle of summer - like 50F. Dress appropriately.

We ended up having to reschedule due to weather. May is a better month if planning on catching Salmon as they are just coming out and weather is a little warmer. Just dress for the weather in layers because you can always shred the layers to stay comfortable.

Do your research and book a Charter with an experienced, knowledgeable, Capt. who has lots of good reviews. These are the pros and know where the fish are and how to get them. Bring light jacket as temps on water can be quite cooler than on shore. Although charters can take up to 6 people, 3-4 people is best as you get optimum rotation on the "hot" rods without crowding. Have fun.
