Lake St. Clair:
Lake St. Clair: Smallmouth bass were caught halfway between the Clinton River and the Shipping Channel when drifting minnows in 17 feet, around the 400 Club and the Mile Roads when casting crank baits or drop-shotting leeches or around the St. Clair Light with tube baits in 14 to 21 feet. Walleye were caught near the Dumping Grounds, the St. Clair Light and the mouth of the South Channel when trolling purple, chartreuse or perch colored crawler harnesses on bottom bouncers. Musky were caught near the "Fire Cracker" and the Clinton River in 10 feet. Crayfish colored body baits worked well. A few bluegills were caught in the canals near Nine Mile Road. On the north end, walleye were caught near the Fair Haven launch when drifting crawlers. Smallmouth bass were taken near the mouth of the Middle Channel when casting tube baits or crank baits. Panfish were in 6 to 8 feet in Anchor Bay.
