The Guys who are vertical jigging the Rivers and Channels are doing good. Also do be afraid to try jigging the Shipping channel in the middle of the lake . Bondy Bait’s and Super D’s are getting the nod from many that are jigging right now. With the cooling trend we are seeing right now and if it holds casting for Muskie should get pretty good possible in the coming weeks. The trollers are running more and more body baits and are starting to move away from the in-lines some. But both are productive right now. In body baits try running baits in the 7 inch range right now. As the waters cool the Muskie should start favoring larger food choice.
There is a new website that is focused on one thing: Casting for Lake St. Clair Musky.
www.lakestclairmuskycasting.com is an informational and forum based website that offers information on Lake St. Clair musky casting guides, baits, and techniques. Those that cast for musky are a hardy bunch that throw big baits. Anyone that’s thrown a couple ounce bait for a few hours knows what a challenge this can be. If you are one of these “Monster Hunters” head on over to the website for Lake St. Clair Musky Casting.
Been a while since our last report, so here you go with the most up to date Lake St. Clair fishing report on the web.
Smallmouth Bass Report
Lots of reports of some smallies being caught off the mile roads. The fish are in deeper water – 12 to 14 feet. Go for the usual tubes and cranks in natural colors. Also getting reports of some nice bass being caught off of Metro Beach in 10-12 feet of water. Go for tubes and try some Erie Darters and DS Darters on a drop-shot rig. Set yourself up for a good drift once you find the weed beds. Stick to the edges.
Steady reports of perch being caught off of the St. Clair Light area. Set-up around 15 feet of water with perch rigs and emerald shiners. You’ll have to weed through some small ones, but some jumbos are out there.
Reports from the Salt River area of Anchor Bay from casters and trollers. Big blades and big tubes for the caster and body baits in perch and jailbird colors have been catching fish. Get near the weed beds in 12 feet of water. Grassy island has given up some fish as well. Towards the south end of the lake we’ve been getting reports from the Dumping Grounds. Try different depths as the fish are fluctuating based on cloud cover and temperature.
Getting some reports of walleye being taken out by the Firecracker on planer boards. Guys are fishing natural colored bombers and rapalas. haven’t heard a depth, but you’ll probably see a few guys out there.
That’s is for now. Good luck and be safe.
