Indiana Fishing Guides and Charters

Indiana Fishing Guides and Indiana fishing is the second most popular sport of the state of Indiana. Indiana basketball is obviously the number one sport in the state and we don’t think even the great Indiana fishing or the spectacular charter fishing Lake Michigan offers will ever challenge Indiana basketball for the state’s number one past time. Indiana basketball has to much legend and to many legendary figures for anything to challenge it for the state’s number one passion. But Lake Michigan charter fishing and other Indiana fishing runs a close second to basket ball and there is good reason why. Indiana fishing guides have hundreds of reservoirs, lakes, rivers, and ponds to fish that are loaded with largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, crappie, trout, and a host of other species including many variety of salmon that are usually caught while charter fishing in Lake Michigan.

Lake Michigan Fishing Charters

Lake Michigan borders the north western corner of Indiana. Fishing in Indiana is pretty good all across the state but for the ultimate in Indiana fishing it is off to the northwest region of the state for some Lake Michigan charter fishing. Fishing in Lake Michigan with professional sport fishing charters will give you a much better chance of catching that trophy sized fish you have dreamed about. If you are a visiting angler then hiring a Lake Michigan fishing charter Captain will give you an edge you wouldn’t have otherwise. An experienced Captain knows the waters, the tendencies, and the fish patterns which will give you a much better chance at having a successful Lake Michigan and Indiana fishing trip you can talk about for years when you get back home.
