Boating in The Great Lakes Area

For this post, we head back up north to the Great Lake states. Boating season is in full swing in this part of the country, so let’s talk about them. The Great Lakes are known as one of the largest freshwater lake systems in the world. With their southern end sitting on the heart of the Midwest and it stretching north into Canada, boating in the Great Lakes is a real treat and probably something for all boaters to experience. Not only does this area provide a combination of historical sites and urban access, but it also provides watersports, fishing and diving.

Boating on the Great LakesBoating on the Great Lakes

The Great Lakes provide an excellent variety of habitat for all types of boats: small ski boats, sailboats, fishing boats up to huge yachts and beyond. It’s just something about the vastness of fresh water that makes it so different than boating on the inland lakes.  Aside from that, you get to witness its breathtaking scenery and unique wildlife. All five lakes are connected and intertwined with one another in some sort of way and offer a guaranteed a “good time”.

This season has the perfect weather to get out there and enjoy your summer break with your friends or family.  One great place to take your boat out is near Glen Arbor, on Lake Michigan. Take a ride out to South Manitou Island you can anchor offshore and climb some sand dunes. Or, you can even go snorkeling and see some ship wreaks off shore. It’s a great place to camp as well.

If you’re looking for more company and like to party, then taking your boat out to Put-In-Bay, one of the Lake Erie Islands is a great place. Not far from Sandusky Ohio, you’ll most likely find yourself on a calmer ride out there than on Lake Michigan. However, when you get there, the boat parties and people watching is a whole lot different than the seclusion of North & South Manitou.

What States Border the Great Lakes?

Well you might not think so, but there are 8 states that touch the Great Lakes:

  • Illinois
  • Indiana
  • Michigan
  • Minnesota
  • New York
  • Ohio
  • Pennsylvania
  • Wisconsin

Michigan has by far the most shoreline exposure. In fact is has the most shoreline period, next to Alaska.

You haven’t experienced life to the fullest if you’ve never gone boating on the Great Lakes.

Fishing Tarpon in the Florida Panhandle

Fishing Tarpon

Fishing Tarpon Around Florida

People say if there’s any fish worth fishing in Florida, it’s a Tarpon. Also, these fish are fast, they put up a good fight, and have said to be “Everything you could want in a fish”. Any avid fisherman will tell you, these are majestic fish that are as fun as they are unpredictable.

These fish require lead line that will hold up against how big these guys can get, we recommend any kind of line that is tested for over 30lbs. Live bait is recommended, but Tarpon have been known to bite large baitfish as well. If you’re on your fishing boat trolling we recommend using large spoons (spoon color will vary with sun conditions), large jiggs, and lipped plugs. Fly fishing (recommended) should utilize  streamers with scissor-action, and castors have had success with surface plugs and jerk plugs.  

These fish are known for jumping out of the water as you battle to get them to the boat, and have been seen jumping as high as 10 ft out of the water. It’s not uncommon for these fish to get over 7 ft. and over 100 lbs. Also, they mostly stick to shallow shores and close to land. Tarpon are one of the biggest fish that can be caught without the use of a boat. Although having a boat on the Gulf Coast in the Florida panhandle can be quite rewarding. Speaking of boats, if you have a fishing boat that you want to sell we are interested!
