Services & Information

Fish Storage, Freezing & Packaging

The Dockside store does store/deep freeze your fish! You must have your fish already packaged (we do not package fish).

The Dockside Store reserves the right to deny storage of fish if proper packaging is not present.  

Michigan Dept. of Natural Resources Michigan DNR regulations require you leave the skin on your fish (in order to identify), your Michigan fishing license number as well as your first and last name, the number of fillets of each kind as well as the date must be preset on the package of fish prior to freezing.
Fishing Licenses

The Dockside Store does not sell fishing licenses; however, the Lodge Office, located around the Harbor from the store does sell Michigan Fishing Licenses! The Lodge Office sells 24-hour fishing licenses only.

A license is not required to fish on any inland lake on Isle Royale, but it is required for any fishing on Lake Superior including its bays and harbors.
