Project Details

Pier Michigan is a collaborative project between MUCC and the GLFT to create a web-based initiative designed to increase public awareness and use of pier fishing opportunities. Shore-based fishing access in Michigan is plentiful, but until now, no clearinghouse has been available with all the information an angler needs to be successful, including fish species present and site amenities.  Through Pier Michigan, the Great Lakes Fishery Trust will continue to increase the impact it has on recreational fishing in Michigan by exposing an increasing number of people to the recreational opportunities provided by our Great Lakes fishery assets.

The project was completed in two phases. The first included the initial development of the Pier Michigan website and the addition of GLFT funded fishing access sites. Through the second phase of the project MUCC and GLFT staff coordinated with local and state partners to collect and add fishing access sites developed through other funding sources to provide a more comprehensive assessment of shore-based angling opportunities in Michigan.
