Reserve a spot for Dad on one of Leland’s Lake Michigan fishing charters, and he’ll be talking about his outing for months to come. From the quaint fishing village, Dad can set off on an all-equipped fishing boat with a friendly crew that will give solid fishing and cleaning tips, as well as plenty of laughs. Most of the captains have had decades of experience boating along the crystal-clear waters between the Leelanau Peninsula and Manitous. Let him toss out a line in the early morning sun and feel the cool freshwater breeze whip his face as the boat speeds between trout or salmon hotspots. Leland boasts three main fishing charters, because of the harbor’s ideal location, that offer a pretty packed schedule during the summer, so choosing a day that fits with dad’s calendar should be as easy as eating the fresh catches that he’s sure to bring home.
