“Northwest Indiana and the easy access to Lake Michigan fishing is something only a few states can offer. Being able to fish on such a vast fresh water fishery that allows so many different types of fish, from pan to sport fish, is an unbelievable experience. From the beginner to the avid sportsman, Northwest Indiana offers much more than just your ordinary pond or inland lake!”
