Things to Do


Not only does northern Michigan offer amazing access to miles of pristine blue-ribbon trout streams, but this is also the land of legends. Hemingway spent his summers here fishing these waters. Trout Unlimited was formed on the Au Sable and Leonard Halladay created the Adams fly down the Boardman.

Charter Fishing

It's hard to resist the lure of the "Big Lake" and fishing charters on Lake Michigan are an enjoyable way to spend a few hours in the sun and on the water trying to land lake trout, salmon, steelhead, and walleye, just to name a few! Afterwards make arrangements with Inn at Bay Harbor's chef to prepare your fresh catch and enjoy a family style meal caught by you! Please contact our concierge at 231.439.4003 to learn more. 

Ice Fishing

It takes a hardy soul to venture out on a frozen lake waiting to catch lake trout, walleye, smelt, or even spear a sturgeon, but the end results are worth it. Learn more about this unique sport by contacting our concierge at 231.439.4003.
