Smallmouth Directions


If flying in for a Michigan fishing trip, I recommend the:

Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (DTW)
9000 Middlebelt Rd
Romulus, MI 48174


Our trip will start at one of the following boat ramps, determined when our trip is booked. The night prior to our trip, I will call you to confirm the location based on the latest weather conditions. At times a little extra travel pays huge dividends! All of these boat ramps have ample parking, clean restrooms, and restaurants, lounges and accommodations nearby.
