I would plan your trip for sometime in May or early June.  As of boat rentals there are only a few.  I think that Jimmy's boat rental is a 14 ft. with a 25 hp on it and you can only use in Anchor Bay.  I know that I will be out every week from ice out til Aug depending on weather.  If you want a guide I would highly recommend Gerry Goestnick he is the local pro but very expensive.   You should also check out lakestclair.net they have info for everything on their website.  If you can't rent or hire a guide I will be more then willing to take you out.

Second that for Gerry Gostenick..  NoWay listed his website in the post above.  As for expensive, i would say about average for LSC.  Remember more times than not, you get what you pay for.  I have used him twice now and wouldn't hesitate to use him again.  Great guy, very personable, and very informative. 

However, he is usually booked for the entire year so if you decide to use him plan way ahead of time and shoot for late May, early June or the Fall.  Some of the biggest come late in fall out of LSC.

Good luck

And as Jenga stated, I would always be happy to put the boat in LSC

I went out with Gerry two years ago and we had a great time on Lk St Clair and he put us on fish. Very good guide and person.

It is very tough fishing in Aug. You will have to concentrate on deep water or the rivers.

Dang... That isn't exactly what i wanted to hear, but we'll try to make the best of it. We'll be launching out of Fair Haven.

In my opinion, if you want to catch alot of smallies, and big smallies, fish St. Clair in late May, through June.

Rusty, I have to agree with Jack. August is my least productive month.
