Anyone fishing Lake St Clair?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone been on St Clair this week or know what is happening on the lake?  Are the fish moving shallow again yet?

Look at lake st clair network and Michigan dnr fishing reports which come out on Thursdays.  Yesterdays report stated the following:

Lake St. Clair:  Fishing was considerably slower for all species with limited success for bass, muskie, and walleye.  Anglers found perch in front of the Grosse Pointe Yacht Club in 17 feet and near Buoy 17 when using golden shiners on perch rigs.  The better perch fishing was out near Buoy 31 in 17 to 19 feet with emerald shiners on perch rigs.  A few channel cats were caught in 12 to 15 feet off 9-Mile Road when drifting crawlers on the bottom.  Most of the action on the north end was in the New Baltimore area, the channel straight out from the Brandenburg launch and around Grassy Island.  Anglers caught pike in the New Baltimore Channel in 11 feet with blue and silver lures.  Yellow perch and a few walleye were caught on jigs.  Anglers drifting crawlers took smallmouth bass and perch near Grassy Island. 

Water temp is at 72F.

Good luck.

I think we've got another week or so before you can get numbers. You can always find smallies in the river.

Have any of you been out lately?  I noticed the weather changed about a week ago.

I haven't seen the lake, but I'm sure it's a mess. We've had 4 days of rain, and it'll continue this weekend.

I'm going out next weekend and am already worried about the water clarity.

From October 7th - 2016 - Michigan DNR Fishing Report and todays water surface temp:

Lake St. Clair: Yellow perch were caught with emerald shiners on perch rigs near Buoy 27. Perch and catfish were caught by those still-fishing or drifting in the same area. Walleye were caught by those jigging in 25 to 30 feet near the mouth of the South Channel. Muskie were caught near the spillway and smallmouth bass were taken in 8 feet near the mouth of the Middle Channel. On the north end, smallmouth bass were caught in 8 feet near Selfridge when casting crank baits. Those moving around had better luck. Largemouth and pike were caught in less than 10 feet in Bouvier Bay when casting crank baits or spinners. Walleye and drum were caught when jigging or trolling a crawler harness around Grassy Island.

Surface Temperature on Lake St. Clair as of October 12-2016 is 57F.  Large temperature drop as of this past week.

That picture doesn't do those fish justice but I heard they had two 7 pounders. Did you fish the Monster Quest Larry?
