Curtis Michigan Fishing on the Manistique Lakes
Curtis Michigan is surrounded by the largest lake complex in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. These lakes consist of North Manistique Lake - also known as Round Lake, Big Manistique Lake, South Manistique Lake – the largest lake in the complex, Milakokia Lake, Lake Ann Louise, and Millecoquins Lake. The Manistique Lakes Complex when combined with the smaller lakes within the area, gives anglers a total of over 20,000 acres of fresh water adventures. If you also consider nearby Lake Superior and Lake Michigan, and the area’s rivers and streams, you have the ultimate fishing opportunity in the nation’s mid-west.
