About Saginaw Bay & Houghton Lake

They are large bodies of water or fish large, so we will be getting to and from our fishing spots via quad or snowmobile, as well fishing within an ice shanty. But not to worry for those of you who do not have this type of transportation or a portable shelter as we have options available. Rides to and from the ice fishing spots are available for $25 per angler per day, and two-man heated ice shanties are available for $75 per angler, per day.
