Freedom Boat Club kicks off the opening of the 2018 season with a bang!
Summer is here and we are open for business!
The Freedom staff welcomed our members with a kick-off party at Bumper’s Landing and awarded the members with our newest addition to the Freedom fleet, the 2018 Veranda Tri-toon powered by Yamaha’s latest 4 stroke 175 HP Vmax.
FBC of Lake St. Clair doubled the fleet in 2 years, and are looking to purchase more boats and develop additional locations as the membership grows.

Like most fishing derby’s, the largest fish is caught by the most patient fisherman. Last year’s winner, Kevin Garnett, landed this lunker 9” Blue Gill with only 3 minutes left in the derby.
