What anglers said about fishing in Grand Traverse Bay

As explained to us, late in the season do the morning or evening trip, not the midday. We went evening and the sunset was amazing!

Elk Rapids is one of the finest marinas in the area. Restrooms were spotless, nice attractive outbuildings.

Seasickness bands, dramamine, jackets for a chilly morning or night, and a good attitude.

east bay is a pretty area to fish in. the limit for lake trout is one. catch and release allows for an increased catch without exceeding the legal limit.

Use prime time charter fishing and if possible book the early morning trip. We had 3 teenagers with us and an hour drive in so early morning would have been miserable with cranky kids but I think the captain said early morning trips may go better but our previous trip was night and we caught a ton. So it can go either way.

Jerry with Prime Time is an excellent guide. He knows what he is doing. I caught some nice fish. I would do it again next time I am in this area.

The weather in Michigan could be in the upper 80's or in the low 50's. Be prepared for inclement weather.
