I hate to post a similar question to one I posted last week, but I need some suggestions from fellow anglers. I am looking for any public access sites that I could go to and fish from shore. In my original post I received one reply telling me to search the website for more info and that the 9 mile access site is open to everyone and not just St. Clair Shores residents, which I am not. I searched the site and found nothing to answer my questions, so I tried to 9 mile access site tonight to only be turned away for not having a SCS park pass. So I ask again in desperation for any suggestions of public access sites I could use. I have a buddy coming up to fish this weekend and would like to take him to a good spot. I am also trying to avoid having to go to Metro Beach Metro Park. Any suggestions would be very appreciated.

Wow, that's odd that you were turned away, I have never heard of that before, in fact I have seen several out-of-state folks launching there.
An alternative would be the Harley Ensign access at the end of S. River Road, lot's of space and area's to fish there. $6.00 to get in the gate or an annual pass for $24.00 which can be used at any DNR access site in the state.

Hitthe river, There are places all up and down the St clair river, but I would try port huron, south of the black river, alot of people use giant sinkers with a crawler rig, but I like to cast cranks downstream and walk upstream, you can cover alot of ground, good luck.

Or rent a boat from jimmy's

wow really, im one of those guys that told you about 9 mile. the only thing i can think of is that they might let anyone launch a boat cause its 10 dollars. ( there makin money ) and the others not so much. i have seen the guy at the booth ask peps who were walkin to fish the shore line there zip code. sorry man, im not a resident either.

I see guys at Harley and Selfridge all the time fishing from shore.

One reason you may not have gotten much of a response is that it's about twice a week we get a "where can I fish from shore" thread started. Try a search again and see what comes up.

This is what I found just searching "shore."

Alot of them will be redundant as there's only so many places to legally shore fish. This isn't Alaska where you can pretty much pull up anywhere and start casting, so you're going to see alot of the same locations mentioned several times.

i use to go to 9 mile when i worked in Floor Installation, never had a problem, then again i know ALOT of zip codes, and for some reason, its apart of my memory. sooo, 48080, 48081, and 48082. if you REALLY wanna go there. if not is up to you, and if you need others, feel free to ask away.....lol

id feel bad if i was fishing without a license, but i wouldn't feel bad for lying to fish with my license.

esox, you dont need a license in AL do you? i had friends in achorage, but they're natives, so they have a few perks.... just curious if it was a state wide thing or just for the eskimos

Also, New Baltimore park, infront of the police station, very easy to find to.

brandenburg, easy to locate, $3-5 bux for parking, long pier and a good variety of species.

Yeah I never got turned away at 9 mile. But if you want to get on some fish I say give metro a shot. Stormchaser does good out there or go to brandenburg.

Hard to believe 9 mille turned you away. But you can try the shook rd access site, the clinton river spillway, metro beach harley ensign at the foot of south river road, the selfridge access site ,brandenbergpark. Stoney creek metro park, spencer park.

In Alabama? I don't know. (Just kidding.)

But in Alaska (AK) you certainly do need a license. There's plenty to go round, but it's not a free-for-all. Still need a license, there's seasons and possession limits and all of that.

I used to live accross from brandenburg park years ago (around '84). My dad took me fishing on that pier all the time and we always came home with something, perch, pike, bass, you name it...Granted 25yrs changes a place, but it was easy to fish from. I remember watching a guy jigging in between the boards on the pier and pulling up crappie through the narrow slats, not sure if you can do that anymore or not.

for crappie, wow lol the pier has a few chunks missing but i have not seen that before. id like to though, it'd just be fun to see.

lol esox, yea yea yea, i knew that lol, kept thinkin ak was for arkansas, LOL all the natives i knew were seal clubbers. to each their own i guess, but they also were into halibit. the 1 guy told me to bring a 22 if i ever went for halibit, easier to get them in the boat.....lol
