A couple of buddies and I went shore fishing behind DTE in marriesville and caught 3 eyes 1 14 in., 1 17 in and 1 19 in. and a bunch of smaller eyes.

We were thinking about making the drive to lexington and fish off the peir (never been there) Has anybody had any luck with eyes out there?

What were you guys using for bait and can anyone fish there or do you need to work for DTE? Walleyes from shore sounds like a winner to me that I would like to try.

Hi iamfish,
We used to fish there a bit, but I used to fish on the dock every week up in Port Sanilac. We never casted any lures from the dock except spoons and Ping-a Tees for Salmon and Trout. We used to throw out worms on a hook, and shrimp and chicken livers. We caught Salmon and Lake Trout on the lures, but the Salmon were in early spring, or fall. On occassion we would get a Skamania in July when they were in the area, very seldom though. I usually caught the Salmon casting, but saw Lakers caught right next to me. I never got a Laker.

Summer months putting out worms you can get big Catfish, Perch, Sheephead, Smelt, Bass, Carp. We usually fished lazy, pole sitting with a bell on it, rather than casting. We would get there after 6 pm and hang out until 1-2 am and then head back to our camp at Forester park just North of Port Sanilac, or if we fished Lexington, we would stay by a campground South of them, can't remember if it was COA or what.

If you plan on camping up there, call around first, don't know what's open. I heard Forester park doesn't allow overnight camping anymore. Night fishing up there with a few friends, a few beers, a few subs, and a coleman lantern is a good time.

One noteable mention, I go up to Tawas City a lot now, and everytime up we at least get out one night and cast for Walleyes off the pier there. Almost always get an eye or a few. Might take one, two or three of us a few hours casting, but we do ok in our opinion. Seems like the hot time is from about 10:30 pm to 2 am, seems like after 2 we are tired, and the fish don't bite as good? We use Rapalas, and Shad Raps.

Hope this helps. Welcome to the site.

Good Luck, Propwash

Yes anyone can fish there. If you are going north on M29, the fishing access is right past DTE. It looks private from the road but its not. We went around 4 a.m.. I'm from Mt. Clemens so it was VERY cool to watch the sun rise and watch all the freighters pass by. We were just using 5 oz bottom bouncers and crawler harnesses with crawlers.

Thank you for the welcome. I would like to know if someone did go. I think I might try my luck.
