You are planning a trip to South Haven and you are looking to do some fishing while you are in town. You are an angler and you want to know the best places to go fishing on your own as well as the best-guided tours. Lake Michigan is a great place to fish and its waters offer lake trout, yellow perch, and both large and smallmouth bass, among other species of fish. The only restricted area is right near the town’s power plant. Your vacation time is valuable, so make sure to plan your South Haven fishing activities in advance.
Best Charter Fishing Trips
Remember to get a fishing license before you set out on your trip, as all charter companies require them. South Haven Fishing Charters offer wonderful charters out of the local port aboard their 30’ SeaRay Express Cruiser, the SilverKing, with Captains Rob and Jeff. These great captains have multiple years of experience and can guide you to the best spots to catch fish—just leave the bananas at home—it’s a fishing superstition! Rampage Fishing Charters offer a personable crew, roomy South Haven fishing boats, and reasonable prices. A five-hour charter boat is $500 for up to four people. Captain Cody at Code Seekers Charter has over 20 years of lake fishing experience. He offers a comfortable ride in his 27-foot Tiara Pursuit. His excursions focus mostly on salmon fishing.
Best South Haven Fishing Spots
Van Buren State Park is a popular place to fish, and if you go in the spring, steelhead and salmon are close to the shore. There is a public fishing pier located in the center of the Black River that is very popular with the locals. If you want to rent your own boat, Black River Boat Rentals can loan you a vessel starting at about $125.00.
Where to Stay
If you catch a fish, you are going to need a place to cook it, and you can’t do that in a tiny little hotel room. The vacation experts at Beachwalk Properties can find you a vacation home with a fully-equipped kitchen where you can prepare your catch and a dishwasher for easy clean-up.
