Hello there all of my fishing buddies. This is Cory from the DNR with this weeks fishing report for Lake St. Clair.
Fishing has been moderate to good in perch and walleye (for the weather).
Yellow perch are being caught the most on the lake recently. The main areas are appr. 1½ mile's off of the 400 Club in 12-13 feet of water and out from the Grosse Pointe Yacht club in appr. 13-14 feet of water also. These are the main hot spots on the lake. There may be other's, but my reports are showing that 90% of the fish are being brought in from these areas. Perch rigs with 1 inch minnows have been the preferred gear with drifting being the preferred technique.
Walleye have been caught in the Dumping Grounds and along the backside of Gull Island. The Dumping Grounds run from appr. the Grosse Pointe Yacht club down to the mouth of the Detroit River. Trolling in both areas has been the productive method. Crawlers on harnesses are still the preffered gear. The depths in both areas also are around 14 to 15 feet. Behind Gull Island the depths are 15-20 feet. More recently the Sni Bora has offered up some walleye. Depths range in this area 8-17 feet in spots.
Smallmouth and largemouth have been slow as of late, but fish are still out there to be caught. Most common areas include the mile roads and the North and Middle channels. Tube jigs are being used in the channels and spinners down at the mile roads.
Muskie has slowed considerably because of the cold weather. Still no good reports from the American water's.
No reports for Northern Pike.
Hopefully everyone catches fish and continues to have fun doing it. Good luck and I will see you at the launches. Thanks, Cory
