Beaver Island in northern Lake Michigan is one of my absolute favorite destinations for outdoor adventure.
I’ve been there a number of times to fly fish for carp and smallmouth bass, and each time as I left I committed to return with a deer rifle in my hand. I finally did and was not disappointed.
Situated about 16 miles off the Michigan mainland, Beaver Island awaits those looking to get away from it all. There are no fudge shops, no horse-drawn carriages and no suit jackets at dinner.
