FISHING & BOATING
South Manistique Lake is noted for good fishing and for its great variety of fish: Northern Pike, Walleye, Large and Small Mouth Bass, Muskie, Tiger Muskie, and an abundance of Panfish-Perch, Bluegills, Rock Bass and Sunfish. Trout have recently been stocked. Whitefish are also caught in June. Walleyes strike best in May, June, and September. There are Trout streams nearby, also Salmon and Trout trolling on Lake Superior, a short drive from the resort.
The water is crystal clear for bathing. There is a gradual slope from shore; no drop off. The lake bottom is sandy and nice for the smallest of children. There is 250 feet of golden crystal sand, straight out. South Manistique Lake is a 4,001-acre lake in Mackinac County, in the Upper Peninsula state of Michigan.
