  • I went to fishtown back in the 80s and had a blast. Returned with my wife last year and this beautiful town had no noticeable change. We had a wonderful time with warm and gracious people. Beautiful sunsets also. Great food. Could not wait to each some smoked fish from Carlson's again. I did get to eat some but left a big slab in our hotel room frig by mistake. This Texan would love to go back.
  • Fishtown is by far my favorite destination in the pinky. For a moment it brings you back to the once thriving fishing industry on the Great Lakes. I have been coming here for many years and still enjoy every minute of my visit.
