Coach's Angle Charters


Are you wondering “Why Coach’s Angle”?

Well, what sets us apart from the competition are a few simple things:

#1. When you book the Coach you fish with the Coach–not passed on to someone else.

#2. We do not overfish our areas and we are constantly locating new fish.

#3. We try to schedule you at the time of year that maximizes your desired fishing style (jerkbait, finesse, topwater, etc.).

#4. We use only high quality tackle from local Michigan tackle companies that know how to make lures that catch fish on Michigan’s ultra clear waters as well as top national brands as needed.

#5. We customize each days fishing hours to take into consideration the weather forecast and your schedule.

#6. We welcome ALL skill levels from first timers to retired national pros .

#7. We also offer family discounts as well as multiple-day discounts.

If you have additional questions, talk to Coach by texting, calling or emailing.

Here’s wishing all an enjoyable and safe Memorial Day weekend. And let us, on this kickoff to summer, not lose sight of this holiday’s intent–to honor the fallen serving our country.
The longest first trimester of smallmouth fishing in NW Michigan has ended. The first smallie came on board on March 3 and they have continued throughout the winter pattern ad well as prespawn.
More over 6.5 lbs than ever were caught and likewise with those over 5 lbs. The single day highlight was a five-fish bag just shy of 30 lbs.
I look forward to the second trimester of 2024.
God Bless!

Very nice. Can’t beat the beauty of Northern Michigan. Hoping the great fishing keeps going and there are still some six-pounders out there in July. 😎

Postspawn smallies cruising the bluegill beds create a good time for annual visitors. Four miles north we had prespawners suspended off the break.
Fun days spent with good people!

An empty parking lot is unusual in May.
A couple smallies were over 6 lbs with none of the others over 4 lbs. Quiet Cove’s Deep Diving Jerkbait was the star (again).
And then devoted some time to amass a limit of perch up to 14"…
Home cooking this week!

The smallmouth cooperated on two different lakes. Big fish so far this week was a 5.95 lber.
Quiet Cove Jerkbaits were the all stars again this week. The pursuit continues tomorrow.

You know you’ve had a good day when a 4.95 lber is the one that keeps you from a truly stellar total. Out of 28 fish two were over 6 lbs and two more were well over 5 lbs.
Quality fish on a fun cold-water technique.

(Still holding on to last year’s prices–will assess gas prices at end of month.)
