Harson's island is suppose to be good for perch as soon as the ice leaves, so that is like now. I fished off of the pier at Brandenburgh Park and New Baltimore Park (now open to the public) and also at the docks at Metro in the boat basin. Should be good this time of year with minnows. And another good spot is at the Clinton river along S. River road by the party store that closed down at the last bend in the road.

Good luck! If I get any, I'll write a good report for all.

you could also try the mouth of the Clinton R. Plus if you're looking for fish to eat there's some decent fishing for channel cats there too.

There is one more area where there are some fishing piers that I never saw mentioned here yet, and these are at Metro park out near the mouth of the black creek that comes out of the park into the lake. There are two new wood piers out there that do not go too far out into the water, but they are very nice and the water is about 6-7 feet within casting distance. Metro operates a "train" that will take you and your equipment out to the piers for 50 cents round trip, otherwise it is about a one mile walk. The train will pick you up at the train station (a bench) next to the park office. I believe they do not operate until 8:00 A.M. once they start it up for the season. You can call the perk and find out for sure when it will be running.

I have seen pike, walleye, bass, perch, gills, catfish, rockbass,sheephead, dogfish, sunfish, you name it and you can catch it there. Quite a bit of boat traffic mid summer on weekends to contend with. Don't have to worry about your lines getting in the way, but weeds get churned up and blow into the shore alot.

those docks at metro are the only place i shore fish in the summer. Amazing fishing there, atleast for sheeps and cats. There are usually one or two bonus species per trip as well.

Try by the St. Clair Shores Library at 11 mile and Jefferson. All the ice is gone. I went with 2 nieghbors and we caught some nice 9-10 inchers, along with some nice crappie and a couple bluegills. Good luck!

Do you need to be a St Clair Shores resident to park and fish by the library??

Yes you need to be a resident to get in. But when c/r bass starts let me know and I will get you in Blossom Heath. Good fishing for the shore guys
Getting towed around by a big fish in a kayak is awesome!!

Nothing wrong with eating suckers. Treat them just like you would pike. You can fillet them, leave the hair bones in, and just cut into 2 inch long pieces and deepfry. Or you can grind up the fillets in a food processor, add panko bread crumbs and other ingredients to make some of the best fish cakes you will ever eat. Just a few of the ways I enjoy them, and next weekend is my annual trip up to Omer for the Sucker festival.

Just walkiing the docks today not alot of action but one guy was fly fishing and pulled in a nice 11" hen. He said he was there for quite awhile but it was nice seeing this hog. Have to put my stuff in the Jeep and throw a line once in awhile.

No guard there today just keep it cleen.

Kids wanted to do some off shore fishing. Took em to 11 mile. 3 Hrs 12 decent perch 8-10. Only had to throw back about 6 or so smaller ones (using minnows). Could have been worse.

Went to Metro and fished on the Black River. Only kept two fish that were 7-8 inchs, but caught a ton of dinks. They weren't biting on minnows at all,..used pieces of crawlers and it made all the difference in the world. Oh well, it was better than sitting on the couch watching hoops.
