Coach's Angle Charters

“Welcome to one of the premier smallmouth bass destinations. After many years of teaching and coaching basketball in Indiana, my wife, Zoe, and I now reside in the  KALKASKA/TRAVERSE CITY area. I spend 6 days a week fishing these beautiful waters and I am inviting you to join me.

My 30-plus years of tournament and guiding experience have made it possible for you to have a fun day of fishing.”
