At around 8AM on Thursday 8/18 we launched from the Nine Mile Ramp. Heavy weed rafts on the lake surface at Nine so we headed down to the Dumping Grounds and fished the Mile Roads on the way back. No live bait. Crank bait, divers. spoons and soft plastics. Mostly in less than 8 ft of water. In total we had about 8 fish on but only managed to boat 2 smallies. One of which was in the 2-3lb range. In retrospect, I should have put it on my Boga Grip. Next time. The bite died completely off by 1PM. I’ll try to post a picture.

Thanks for the good report. I would like to get out to that area and launch at the 9 mile ramp, but it is such of a loooong walk from the parking lot to the ramp for some guys to make. When I do get out to that ramp, I park my trailer in the parking lot & I can than park my car in one of the few handicapped spots right next to the ramp (no trailers allowed). Lot of extra work, but if I want to use that ramp, that's what I have to do. How is the launch ramp itself over there? I understand a while back that the dock was falling apart and not hardly usable. How was it when you went there ?

Note: Welcome to the site. Will be looking for future reports from you.

Logistics are still the same. The gate attendant gave us a ride back down to the dock in a golf cart after parking the truck and trailer. Still had to walk it back up afterward. Dock was in good condition. Newer floating style with a good amount of cleats for tying off on each side.

I need to learn how to fish for bass.
You can watch a lot of videos on line if you type in "bass fishing Lake St Clair" into your search bar. Watching those videos and reading bass reports on the various fishing forums on your computer will teach you a lot about bass fishing. You can learn more on the site called Michigan Sportsman than you can on this site currently because there are a lot more fishing reports on that site right now. This site is building in popularity once again, so stay tuned here too.

Bass are pretty easy to catch on Lake St Clair. They are easier to catch for me than the perch I have been after lately. Start out with a tube bait and you can't go wrong for the bass. ;)

Andre,

Being a picture is worth 1,000 words it is said, GOOGLE "tube baits" and you will see exactly what a tube bait is and how to hook it up onto a jighead, usually a 3/8 oz. jighead will work, depends on water depth & water current. You then tie this directly onto your line and cast & retrieve it or drift fish if in a boat, just dragging the bottom with it and you will get some bass. The tubes come in various sizes and colors. Go with about a 3" tube bait and test the colors out to see what they want. Good luck and you are very welcome for the previous advice.
