Lake St. Clair is world famous for small mouth bass and muskelunge. Combine this with a strong walleye and yellow perch population and anglers can catch some of the most desirable freshwater fish in our region. Our multi species trips provide anglers the opportunity to catch everything that swims in beautiful Lake St. Clair.
Lakes St. Clair Walleye (May - Ice up)
Lake St. Clair is our home waters. The popularity of targeting walleye with trolling has skyrocketed in recent years. We target walleyes year round and educate our clients on catching them pre-spawn, post-spawn, summer, and fall/winter paterns.
Lakes St. Clair Yellow Perch (July - November 2023)
Yellow perch are abundant in the lake and are a riot to fish for. Perch fishing is typically non-stop hands on action and is perfect for groups with youth anglers. Most agree that perch are among the most delicious Great Lakes fish for table fare. In 2022 we put several perch over 13" into the boat.

The St. Clair River feeds Lake St. Clair with the cool waters from Lake Huron. It is one of the finest walleye fisheries in Michigan and offers anglers the opportunity to catch walleyes with vertical jigging and bottom bouncing. We offer specialized whipping and hand lining trips at night, message us for details on this.
