Northern Michigan

March - May

In the spring In The Net Charters begins the season fishing in Northern Michigan. Northern Michigan offers a variety of game fish including, lake trout, Atlantic salmon, burbot, cisco and brown trout. Fishing on Grand Traverses Bay and several inland lakes including, Elk, Torch and Mullet Lake there is always a great fishing opportunity to be had. This time of the year it’s best to be flexible in target species and In The Net Charters does their best to ensure we put you on the best fishing available. This time of the year we use a variety of techniques including vertical jigging, casting and trolling.



If you’ve never experienced vertical jigging for Lake Trout and Cisco, this is a great opportunity to have very hands on fishing experience. Using light tackle the lake trout and cisco provide a lot of fun.


The spring trips our aboard the “Little Net” a 16.5 ft Sea Nymph, the “Little Net” is out fitted with all the essential fishing equipment for a great day on the water. In The Net Charters offers trips for groups up to 3 guests aboard the “Little Net”.  Larger groups can be accommodated upon request.
