The Ludington Offshore Classic is one of the premier Great Lakes sports fishing tournaments. Ludington is considered one of, if not the best port on the Great Lakes for trout and salmon fishing, with tremendous facilities and a downtown within blocks of our marinas. The 2015 tournament will be held July 16th through July 19th. This is the height of our tourist season in Ludington with over 25,000 visitors taking advantage of miles of pristine beaches, the small town atmosphere and premier events (including one of the largest Gus Macker Basketball Tournaments in the US and this, the largest freshwater salmon tournament in the US). It also happens at peak time for fishing on Lake Michigan.
