Saint Clair Report
« on: June 22, 2020, 08:46:14 AM »

June 16- June 20 bite good, wind bad :) Fish we were catching was in 8.5- 11 foot. Swim baits, Rattle baits early, when sun got up good used same baits, and drop shot, and tube 10-11 foot range.  We did not really smoke em as in years past but a good trip.  Most of our Lake Norman Mafia crews were boating 25-40 smallies a day. 3 lb average with a few over 4 1/2- to 5+.  Great trip again as always to LSC.  I do wish the pleasure boaters would get some common sense and not try to run with in 30 foot of boat fishing.  Like to got swamped two or three times in 20' bass boat ;D Enjoyed y'all's lake again but don't think I will fish it again on a Saturday or Sunday. Fished out of Selfridge every day except Saturday went to 9 mile all ramps packed by 6am except 9 mine.  Most fish came out of Selfridge, but our best numbers came out of 9 Mile from Gross Point Marina to about 12 mile good ways past the Blue and Purple Wall. Crocker still closed, Harley, Selfridge, 9 mile all open, did not try the North end ramps. Last but not least we did catch 4 over 5 black drum and a 50 gallon barrel of Rock Bass :D

Glad you had fun and caught some. "Pleasure" boaters ...pleasure themselves with little idea of their effect on other boaters or shoreline property owners. Or maybe they do and just don't care. I assume it happens everywhere, but yeah it sux. They must think we are anchored and fishing 10' from the boat, and some think you wouldn't mind if the squeezed between you and the dock. Safe travels and hurry back.

Hard Core Reply, you boy's got to have some of the most D A boater's in the Nation, No seaman ship, boat training or any place on earth. ;)  Sure nuff love the fishing, but can not believe the lack of common sense of the pleasure boater.  Hell's Bell'sl most of them would have been in jail down South. Fishing great. Sorry guys I do not see why these unsafe boating is allowed in any state.

It is unbelievable that boating safety classes are not a requirement in this state. Clueless idiots are the norm on LSC and lakes throughout Michigan. Sheriffs safety classes take just a few hours and after a test, a certificate is issued. These classes should be the minimum required to operate boats, many of which can travel at speeds well over 40mph and throw 3-4’ wakes.

Good post and glad that you had success. Did you check the ramp at Lake St. Clair Metropark? It’s closer to Mile Rds. than Harley and Selfridge. Yeah, there is a long no wake to lake but is a relief to have a quiet place to turn in in the afternoon when the lake is churned up from big boats.

Naw never used it in 10 years semi annual trips.  LIttle pricey and don't get to fish LSC enough for annual pass. Most times I do buy Annual DNR pass but did not have time to order on short notice of this trip.  Got there and DNR wavied fees :) :) :) Great Like to us Crocker and Selfridge depending on the bite and 9 mile if going south.  Nine mile sure got a problem with the dock.  Needs to go out deeper and fix end poles. Now Harley is always good if not flooded. Son you boys sure got some high water hopefully in with get on back down.  May flies were doing nicely.  Would like to have been a little later when the Big Black one on the water and lake about 2-3 lower.  We did come into town via I-275 and then to I 696 to I 94 due to the construction.  Long way around but a lot easier and safer. Staying in Selfridge Area.
