Fishing from the pier in Grand Haven that marks the Grand River that flows into Lake Michigan is popular as is fishing from boats. Charters take sports fishers out and often come back with a catch of coho and king salmon, Pacific salmon that were planted in the Great Lakes. Yesterday the governor caught a nice steelhead, a lake run rainbow trout, on a charter. Sometimes football sized brown trout are caught. The fish are biting now that cooler water has moved in.
Sailing, surf boarding, kite boarding, and paddle boarding are all popular sports on the Great Lakes. Some like to fly kites or play volley ball on the beach and some just like to gaze. Sunsets are spectacular.
