I have decided that hiring a guide that knows the lake would be a quick way to learn more about fishing this great body of water. Now - who? Any suggestions? I would want to fish for smallies and/or muskies with artificials. I prefer chunking and winding rather than trolling. It is proper to try to drain a guide's brain while you have them out?

Thanks for the help.

Look up three posts; Muskybobsr is your guy. This is from someone who has gone out with Bob. Great teacher, will put you on fish and is darn good at "catching". Lastly, you will have a great bowl of chili at the Raft if the water is high enough to get in. Good luck.

Paul,

I've had the pleasure of fishing with Bob Brunner and Art Ferguson (not at the same time ;-))). They are both top flight guides whom I'd recommend very highly.

Art is a bass guide who knows the lake very well and can teach you a great deal about how to fish st clair. He is a fine sportsman, too. Case in point: on the way back to the Metro launch Art spotted a mallard drake in the canal apparently in distress. He motored over, saw that the poor duck had become tangled in a mass of discarded monofilament, captured the duck using a towel, freed the animal from the mono, and set him back into the water, none the worse for wear. The man cares.

Bob is an all-fish guide who specializes in musky. He haunts Anchor Bay and knows it unbelievably well. Case in point: launching in my boat out of Selfridge early, he simply said, "Head into the sun." I did so. We crossed the bay and were headed in the general direction of the north channel. He made a couple of very minor heading adjustments along the way. He then said, "Stop." I did so. Bob turned the boat southward and, as if by magic, the most beautiful series of weedbeds appeared before me. There were fish in those beds, Paul, and I don't mean junior leaguers, either.

You can't go wrong with Art or Bob.

Jon Bondy and Muskie Bob are both winners. I've fished with both and had a great time. Jon is a real professional with a beautiful boat. He's a bass and walleye pro. Bob is a story teller and a master of muskie. Both will put you on the fish in a flash.

If it is your desire to cast for the really big game fish (muskie) I would highly recomend Bob Brunner. He has fished Lake St. Clair all his life & will put you on the fish in a jiffy. A really nice guy & a great story teller. You can't go wrong with Bob.

If you like light tackle fishing or something different like fly fishing give Captain Brian Meszaros a call. I went out with him last month and had a great day of fishing, learning and talking fishing. Brian's boat was in tip top shape and he was very professional and friendly. He taught me a lot and we put a couple 4 pound + smallies in the boat.

It was a great day!!!
