Hey guys I'm new to the lake. I recently started fishing for bass and musky just casting. Caght a few small Muskies and a lot of large mouth. I am atempting to go walleye fishing for the first time around the lake I launch out of the selfridge ramp near hall Rd. Does anyone have tips on the closest spot to have a shot at hooking some. I am familiar with anchor bay around that area. Thanks for any help

If you get lucky you might catch a few by the salt river trolling harnesses real slow when the water is stained otherwise SCR & various channels & mouths

Unfortunately it varies. Could be within a hundred yards or so could be half way out into the bay. You just don't know for sure where the active fish will be. I would just troll the harnesses over the weed beds (flat line) and cover as much territory as possible if you can't make a longer run out along the shipping channel or into the rivers.

Try ever larger S patterns starting in that corner and work out toward the center & SANG

where would the north channel or grassy island be from the selfridge launch or is it pretty far?

Grassy island is a bit of a hike from the selfridge launch. The channels are behind the island.

Monday evening there were approx. 20 boats straight out from brandenburg trolling or drifting. could only assume they were fishing for wallys. They were in 11' of water just north of selfridge about even with salt river/brandenburg out about a mile. Did U catch your small muskys between selfrdge and the salt??? Been fishing there the last month 6-8' of water, have seen some nice ones and getting a good amount of follows casting bucktails. GOODLUCK

yeah i"ve been consistantly catching smaller muskies on lipless shad raps believe it or not right between those spots. I like to target smallies, but i reel pretty quick which seems to get the attention of the smaller muskies.... which doesnt bother me at all. I would like to catch a nice klunker soon tho!

I have a 16 alum, i am kind of limited to how far I can travel so that would help. I am atempting on going out tonight is there a lot of sand bars or low points that will mess up my motor around deckers landing? and minnows or crawlers?

the dnr launch is closser and is a better launch site deckers only has one launch when you come out of the dnr launch grassy is straight out but stay a little to the right on your way out i havent fished it but i would try using harnesses with a 2 oz bottom bouncer find the channel on the east side of grassy troll in the channel from grassy to bouy 6

is your boat a deep v the st clair light is producing the best on the lake

port huron is producing pretty good if you wanna go there
