The fishing on Lake St. Clair and Detroit River is on fire.

BASS:  The smallmouth bass fishing is very good at Huron Point by Metro Beach. On Wednesday, on a Captain Steve Jones Charter a 6lb 23 inch smallie was landed. The fish are in 5-15 ft. of water,  ½ to 1 ½ miles off Huron Point.  The best technique is fishing on bottom using a three way rig drifting with large minnows.  Also, cruncher tubes in brown and green can produce fish.  The mile roads in St. Clair Shores is also a good spot.  The occasional largemouth bass is also being caught.

PERCH:     Perch fishing is excellent by the St. Clair Lighthouse.  Buoy 27 & 28 is another good spot.  The buoys are approximately 3 miles off Gull Island.  Find a weed bed and work the edges.  Make sure you are anchored securely.  Lively minnows are the preferred target.

MUSKY:  On Thursday, Capt. Steve Jones landed 35 musky’s on a charter.  The hot spot is on the Canadian side between the Ruscom River and the Thames River.  Wiley baits in the perch and bass colors are hot.  Also, Buck Tail Spoons are producing fish.

Walleye fish

WALLEYE:  The walleye fishing is excellent on Lake St. Clair and The Detroit River.  The south end of the dumping grounds are producing nice fish in the 1-4 lb. class.  The 3-way rig tapping bottom is the preferred method.  Chartreuse and florescent orange crawler harnesses are the best baits.  Walleye on the Detroit River is still very good.  Jiggers and handliners are doing very good from the Ambassador Bridge up to the north end of the river. The wind and weather looks stable for this weekend, so it should be a fantastic weekend for fishing.  Go out and get em!
