Sanctuary of the great lakes

Grand Lake

Grand Lake is a challenging lake to fish. The lake is large so be sure to have a plan in place before heading out on the water. Reeds, rocks, and a number of small islands within the lake make for excellent fish habitat. Smallmouth bass are plentiful. Trophy size pike are known to come out of the lake.
