You can always tell when the fish are biting in Grand Marais. Anglers line the pier to catch whitefish, menominee and lake trout. Unfortunately, the best fishing is usually in the worst weather. Relaxing on a sunny day is usually accompanied by very little action. Fishing in Grand Marais gets you away from everything; away from home, away from the TV, away from the job. So, if you want to get away from it all, go fishing in Grand Marais! These links will help you find the best place.
