Lake Michigan is one of the biggest lakes in the US and perhaps the most exciting in terms of boating activities. It is shared by four US states: Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, and Indiana. Its waterfront in each state is very different, giving the lakeÃ¢ÂÂs visitors the opportunity to explore its many faces. Fishing is a natural part of the lakeÃ¢ÂÂs buzzing activities. There is a huge variety of fishing boats for rent, satisfying AmericaÃ¢ÂÂs hobbies and fish consumption on a daily basis. Recreational boating in Lake Michigan is also a thrilling venture due to the plentiful picturesque islands, harbors, and lighthouses. The boating season opens up in the middle of May and extends through October.
