Posts I've Made
Yesterday, 08:10 AMPast 1-2 weeks I've been catching them at Bishop Park in Wyandotte off the pier. That pier seems to fill up pretty quick. Mostly fished it during the week before having to go to work and it wasn't as crowded as the one day I fished it on the weekend. There are quite a few people there who don't know how to cast and understand the River current so you will get your line crossed a few times. Tried Miliken Park about a week ago and only got 1 silver and had 1 other bite. Have seen a lot of people along the river walk at the end of Southfield and Jefferson. Might be a better spot to try if looking for room to fish.
27 May 2015 - 10:28 AMMy top 3 baits for white bass are a jig/3" gulp minnow, chrome spoon, and a blade bait. When I see them busting surface then its a 3" rebel popper or a 4 1/2" zara spook worked fast.
I used a silver spoon at Metro one time when I was shore fishing for them. I would wait until they started jumping after the minnows (they would surface about a ten or so at a time) then I would cast my silver spoon into the splash and as soon as it hit the water, is was fish on! Lots of fun.
When I need distance and am searching for the school of silvers I would casts a 1/3oz silver spoon or a blade bait. When I see them busting minnows at the surface I would throw my topwater. Talk about fun you should see a school of silvers throwing your popper up in the air cause so many are trying to grab it.
27 May 2015 - 10:24 AMGood going, Donny! So they were still toward the bottom, eh?
All the silvers that I have caught so far on the Detroit River have been right near bottom Frank. I haven't seen them busting minnows at the surface. I have seen a flock of seagulls towards the channel markers though. They might be hitting close to the surface over there.
