Abandoned or Unattended Tribal Commercial Net Locations- Lake Michigan

This information is provided for your safety as these nets can be a navigational hazard because of a lack of proper markings, long anchor lines floating away from the nets and an uncertainty as to how the net lays out under the water. Therefore, it is very important to give these areas a very wide berth.

About Us

MSSFA was organized in 1967 by a handful of individuals who knew that Michigan's newly formed trout & salmon fishery was something worth working to protect. They were a small group who wanted not only to protect their fishery, but learn how to catch their elusive prey and tell fishing stories.

MSSFA Chapters have membership meetings with guest speakers to learn all the aspects of sport fishing.  MSSFA Chapters also sponsor fishing clinics, seminars, sport-fishing shows, derbies and tournaments.

With a common goal, and a close working partner with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (MDNR). MSSFA helps to enhance the resource and sport fishing in our rivers, streams, inland lakes and of course the Great Lakes.
