We launch from several ramps on the Keweenaw Peninsula in the early Spring and  late Fall.  Our Main Port for Lake Trout and Salmon is the Lac La Belle Marina which is  the closest access  to Bete Grise  (pnonounced  Bay-DE-Gree)  on Lake Superior.  (See Map and Directions at the bottom of the Homepage)  We will send info, to re-confirm trip details, via text or email.  Please understand that while traveling in the  remote Upper Peninsula and especially the Keweenaw,  Cell service  can go from Full Bars to Zero  and back to Full in a few miles. with some marginal areas for texting. Just because you can see a cell tower does not mean your provider can connect to it's service.

We may be able to direct you to a location of service along your travel route or near your accommodations   We should Text or preferably Speak with You 3 days before and re-connect especially the early evening  before the trip if WEATHER becomes a factor.   We can discuss a possible alternate launch  site and/or area to avoid a cancellation .
