Hello this is the Creel Clerk Cory again with this weeks fishing report.
Fishing has been decent all around the lake so this will report will be very general in the areas that the fish are being caught because there are so many areas that are productive right now.
Walleye are being picked up north of the St. Clair light by buoy S. The depths are variable between 12-16 feet. Boats are using crawler harnesses drifting and trolling. Most of the fish are being caught trolling slowly and some are being caught on a quick drift so bascially any method with a crawler harnesses is good. Colors of these harnesses are white, pearl, hammered brass, gold, and chartruese.
Walleye are also being picked up straight out from from Harrison Twp. launch about 2 miles using the same methods as by buoy S. Additional Walleye are being caught off of 9 and 8 mile Rds. Trolling at this spot has been the most productive.
Yellow Perch have been very good out by the St. Clair light and by buoy S. Drifting with a perch rig in about 15-20 feet of water has been the most commonly used practice to find the fish and then anchoring to bring them in. Perch have also been caught up and around Gull Island in appr. 18-21 feet of water. Two boats came in with 60 or more in the last 3 days.
As far as pike and muskie there are no reports on the American side. These species have been hit or miss for the past month usually being picked up when trolling for Walleye.
Smallmouth bass and largemouth have been very productive off of the mile roads and north of the Coast Guard Station. Tubes of natural colors have been the best. Spinners white in color have been second best. Most boats are just casting towards shore and over weed lines.
Hopefully this helps everyone catch some fish. Good Luck this week. Thanks, Cory
