Story Behind the Name
Charter fishing should really be called “Reeling in a Fish.” FishON! is what the cap’n yells just before you reel until your forearm is screaming. Then you reel for another twenty minutes.
The city of Muskegon sits on a natural harbor that makes it one of the best places to live in Michigan if you love the water. People there call it “the lake effect,” and it’s easy to see why. They have miles of shoreline with beautiful sand beaches and places to live right near the water, and if you’re into any kind of boating, it truly is the place to be. As for the city, it’s got a great downtown that’s full of history, and the classic architecture alone makes Muskegon worth the trip. There are also places to stay right in town, some where you can even boat right up to your hotel. And if that’s not cool, I don’t know what is!
The next day I did two things I’ve never done before. One was to get up at four o’clock in the morning. I didn’t know that time even existed. The other was to go charter fishing. And if you saw our Houghton Lake episode, you know that the only fish I ever caught came out of a bait tank.
As for Muskegon, now I can say I’ve been there, and that I’ll be back again and again!
I’m a big believer in trusting how a city feels, and Flint feels good. I love the way the downtown is laid out. It’s that perfect size I keep talking about. Big enough to have a great urban feel, but small enough to be completely walkable. There’s modern and affordable urban living right downtown, and UM-Flint gives the city creative life and energy. I like it! Like a lot of Michigan cities, Flint is going through an exciting renaissance, and right now is a great time to live, visit or even invest there.
Next we went to another place in Flint that completely blew our collective minds. If you like culture, science, music, art and history, it turns out Flint is a world-class destination.
As for Flint, the only way to know it is to see it for yourself! And if you haven’t seen it in a while, you’re gonna like what you see.
