Fish With Jim Outfitters has spent the time and done the research for you on the most productive rivers and inland lakes in Northern Michigan, Northern Ohio and Pennsylvania. As a professional guide service we know how important your time is and how a great experience on the water can give you a much needed release from your daily grind. Fish With Jim Outfitters will give you the tools and knowledge to be in the top 10% of anglers that catch 90% of the fish! Fish With Jim Outfitters uses a different approach than most guides, giving you simple and easy instructions from detecting the bite, to setting the hook, to reading the water - resulting in “Fish On!” Our guides have spent countless hours learning tricks to enticing fish to bite and can guarantee your best shot at having a successful day! Jim is a friendly, enthusiastic guide who has served hundreds of happy fisher-people since 1998. Jim's fishing knowledge and love for the sport has consistently resulted in a successful day of fishing. Jim enjoys helping others catch fish as well as sharing the secrets that have given him a competitive edge over the competition. Your fishing party will be given Jim's personal attention and best effort to ensure a successful and enjoyable guided fishing experience. Fish Northern Michigan's Inland Lakes, Grand Traverse Bay and the area rivers and have a chance to catch King Salmon, Coho Salmon, Steelhead, Brown Trout, Lake Trout, Whitefish and Cisco. Fish the boarder of Northern Ohio and Northern Pennsylvania, for Steelhead. Strap-on your waders and walk into some of the most productive Steelhead Rivers that Northwest Pennsylvania and Northeast Ohio has to offer. Enjoy fishing Conneaut Creek, Ashtabula River, Elk Creek, Walnut Creek, The Mile Creeks and many other Secret Creeks. We provide you with float fishing tackle with both center pin and spinning rods. Fish With Jim Outfitters offers trips from our 18' Starcraft Freedom the perfect option for crowded weekends and if the fish haven't run the river.
