Chris LeMessurier

"Great Lakes Chris"

About Me:

Chris owns and operates Kayak Fish the Great Lakes to share his passion with anglers from all over the Great Lakes region. The waters in and around Michigan offer diverse options for multiple species, and Chris uses his Commander 120, Tarpon 140, or Ride 115 to find them. He specializes in tasty salmon and explosive northern pike. Chris and his photos have even been featured on the front cover of Kayak Angler Magazine and International Angler Magazine.

Each spring Chris finds himself working hard as Tournament Director for the No-Mo Charity Kayak Fishing Tournament. The hard work is a labor of love as it allows him to grow the kayak fishing community and help support the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Michigan. While on the water, Chris has caught International Game Fish Association (IGFA) state records from his Wilderness Systems kayaks. He is also an American Canoe Association (ACA) certified Kayak Instructor.

Chris believes that "kayak fishing, and the experience of being part of the water, is truly unmatched by any other form of fishing."
