Our Story


Pentwater Sportfishing Association

The purpose of the Association is to provide a forum for its members to express their ideas, concerns and interest as they relate to the development, protection and general promotion of sportfishing in Pentwater and adjacent Lake Michigan; to serve as an action group to propagate the common interest of its members.

Founded in 1983, PSA believes that sportfishing is a major part of the recreational and tourist appeal of Pentwater and that sportfishing has a major positive economic impact upon the Village of Pentwater, Oceana County, and the West Coast of Michigan.
