John Cross Fisheries sets the standard. Every time we go up north this place is must stop on the way home. We load up with smoked Whitefish, Trout and Salmon— both filets and spreads.

The Lake Michigan is famous by the White Fish, and John Cross is the reference to buy the catch of the day white fish. But you can buy differents fishes from the lake. Also they sell seafood like tuna, shrimp, lobster, and so one.

Tried the boneless white fish (obviously) and one of the salmons. Both were very fresh, smoked but not dried out, very cool place. They were really good about double bagging my fish and adding a small bag of ice to keep things cool while we...More
