Fishing On America's Great Lakes
Big lakes, big water, big fish and big fun are in order when you spend a day fishing on one of the Great Lakes. Lake Erie, Lake Huron, Lake Michigan, Lake Ontario and Lake Superior are all aptly named great lakes.Pick any one of the five and you may be in for the trip and/or trophy fish of a lifetime. Together these five lakes cover over 90,000 square miles and have a collective shoreline of over 9,700 miles. That's a lot of water to fish and a lot of shoreline to explore.
