With the ice gone and winter temps behind us West Grand Traverse Bay is warming up and the fishing is sure to heat up as well. The Lake Trout and Cicso bite should be excellent over the course of the next few weeks. 231-218-2551

We were greeted by the SWEETEST yellow lab, so I shouldn’t even have to say more, but we had the best day ever. We learned a bit more about lake fishing and will definitely be back for another round in a different season!

If you search for "what to do in Traverse City" this outfit won't be the first page of the results and that is truly a shame. Captain Alonzo was INCREDIBLE! The day started cold and rainy and he was able to accommodate a schedule change to find nicer weather. He landed us on fish and kept the day moving with great conversation. He shared with us the differences from salt water fishing (we're from FL) and freshwater so we knew WHY we were doing things. He took our 9&11 year old girls under his guidance and helped them reel in fish so they had a sense of accomplishment. First mate Lane was so friendly and helpful as well. Both celebrated our catches as if we were masters. Don't hesitate to make a reservation and join Fish-XTC for a fantastic day on the water in Traverse City!

Had a wonderful experience fishing with Captain Alonzo and crew. They were very pleasant and knowledgeable. We took our kids with us and they loved it. We caught some nice fish. It was just a great experience overall. Highly recommend Fish-X-TC !
