Default Re: Traverse City, Michigan Guides??

Hi alcorn,

There are two shops in Traverse City that offer guide service, I own one of them, The Northern Angler at 803 W Front St in TC, the Orvis shop is no longer in Acme at the resort, they are in downtown TC
The carp are in the bay right now and will be through June and into mid July, the smallies will be showing up soon in the shallows but it has been a cool spring so far. The trout fishing up here in late June can be fantastic and the cool thing is that the best time to fish carp and bass in the bay is late morn thru late afternoon and the best time for the trout is evening into the night so you can hit the prime time for both without overlapping. Makes for a long day, but worth it. I don't want to abuse the forum to advertise but if you want some more info about the shop, check out
Traverse City in June is a sweet place to visit! Feel free to contact us with any questions fishing related or otherwise. Kirk
