Captain Bill Warner of Willie Wonka has made Wow - Nice Day!Ludington his summer home since 1982. Bill has boated & fished almost every port on Michigan's shoreline.

Ludington sportfishing is second to none. A recent study by Michigan Sea Grant, an organization of MSU and U of M, compiled from charter captain surveys from across the state, showed the average catch for 2003 on Ludingtion charter boats to be among the best on Lake Michigan. The average catch from Ludingtion for 2005 was over 9.4 per trip, with chinook, or king salmon accounting for two thirds of our catch.

Nice King SalmonFishing season starts in early to mid April when the Brown trout and Steelhead are close to shore. As the water warms Willie Wonka moves out to target Coho & Chinook Salmon, with Steelhead and Trout still mixed into the bag. In August the big Kings are prevalent in the deep clear waters off of Point Sable.... Ludington is known for having one of Michigan's most consistent fisheries.


Badger Ferry Schedule Besides the thrill of big lake salmon fishing, Ludington has much to offer, with some of the states most challenging golf courses, fine dining, hiking Ludington State park or just relaxing the day away at the beach
