Ready to have the most amazing fishing year of your life? It’s time to hit the classroom with Freewater Experience as we share all of the very best secrets to make this coming fishing year truly epic! These 75 minute classes on Wednesday nights in March & April will dive into the times and places where we’ve discovered amazing fishing over our 17 years in Grand Haven. Featured on Michigan Out Of Doors, Freewater Experience has the experience and knowledge to radically improve the way you fish right here in West Michigan. Our passion is to pursue the most active species in any given season to create the most unforgettable fishing adventures, including:
SALMON & STEELHEAD on the lake, from the piers, and in the rivers
RIVER MONSTERS right here in Grand Haven (Catfish & Gar)
BASS, PIKE, & PANFISH from Spring through Fall
WALLEYE & WHITEFISH runs right under our noses
Dive into the insane fun of spring SUCKER SPEARING
And much, much more!
Want to hit the water? Give us a call and we'll take you to the places where fishing is hot right now. These are free/donation-based fishing trips...if you want to make a contribution or become a regular donor for Freewater Experience, that's great. If you can't afford to make a donation, we're just excited to get you out there and share some time on the water with you. We custom fit these trips for anglers of all ages and all skill levels.
We have all the equipment, along with a great property to run a fun skeet shooting event for you or your group. This is a great chance for new shooters to practice their skills with some great coaching in a non-competitive setting. If you're a more experienced shooter, we can make things a little more challenging for you too. This is a perfect event for groups of friends, birthdays, scout groups, youth groups, and even sports teams. Cost is around $10 for each shooter.
Take us to your favorite fishing or hunting spot, and we'll show you how to get the most out of it. Bring us on board your boat and we'll show you the best ways to set up and catch more fish in your home waters. In the field, we can walk your hunting grounds, pattern the animals, show you the best spots to hunt, and set up stands or blinds to give you the best chance of success this season.
If you were lost in the woods with minimal equipment, could you survive? Would you know how to build a shelter, start a fire, find clean water, and gather food from the woods around you? If you're a fan of Survivor Man or Man Vs. Wild, this weekend trip is for you. We will be looking to plan our next trip in the coming year, so stay tuned for specific dates.
Look for us in the middle school and high school lunch rooms in the Grand Haven area. When you find us, you'll likely a crowd of 30 - 50 students playing games, listening to faith lessons, and building awesome relationships. Our lunchroom Freewater Clubs are the weekly heartbeat of our ministry.
HARD TIME HUNTERS
Many people around us are falling under hard times, and we can make a difference! Freewater Experience is partnering with Covenant Life Church to get food to those who could use a little help this coming fall and winter. Consider donating a portion of the game that you get this fall, or a whole animal if your freezer is getting full. Contact us and we'll receive your donation, then pass it on to those who need it. Requirements for donations are:
- Deer or Elk (any other animals or fish, call us first)
- Meat from this year only...let's give from the top of our freezer, not the bottom
- Burger, roasts, or steaks (easy cuts for those who may not be used to cooking wild game)
