EAT, SLEEP, BAIT!

Just like any other world class fishing destination, the area surrounding the Pere Marquette River has a multitude of supporting businesses. Lodging can be had for as little as $30/night to well over $100/night depending on what your preferences are. Here is a short list of some of the restaurants, hotels, motels and tackle shops we've personally visited. Granted, there are many, many more in the area but we spend our time on the river, not rating the food! The remarks are from our staff, and again, like all other parts of Quest Outdoors, are not biased one way or the other; just our honest opinions.

Baldwin Bait & Tackle
Located on the west side of M-37 just south of the river BBT has just about everything you might need to make your weekend complete. From rods and reels to tippet and crickets and everything in between BBT carries full product lines to outfit your every wish in fishing. They also carry a great
selection of hunting gear and apparel from ammo and wool socks to tree stands and calls. Car Spotting, Hunting and Fishing License sales as well as USFS parking permits.

Staff Comments:
BBT is one of the only shops you can call and get a totally HONEST fishing report from! If the fishing stinks they're not going to lie to ya just to get your business. They're going to tell you to save your money and come up some other time.
