An icon of Leland, Carlson’s Fishery is located right on the River in Fishtown. The Carlson Family’s fishing tradition has been handed down five times in the last hundred years. Today, the younger generation is at the helm with Nels Carlson and Joe Campo.
There is a huge difference between fresh and frozen whitefish, so years ago we made the decision to get 100% of our whitefish fresh from Carlson’s. We feel very fortunate to have such a high quality source of whitefish so near to us, and we love that we can help support such a great family business in the process.
Unfortunately, there are days when it’s too windy to get the boats out safely, or Carlson’s just isn’t catching enough fish. On those night we won’t have whitefish on our menu, but when we do, it’s the best!
