 The south channel St Clair river? It may be easier to travel up to the north side of Anchor Bay. Then launch at one of those launches. There are a few DNR sites and privet launches, like Decker's Landing. If your not familiar with the lake, it could be a long trip if the lake decides not to cooperate. Get yourself a good lake map.

If you are new to St. Clair, I would highly recommend driving to Algonac, and launching there. It's a 38 mile drive (about 45 minutes) to the DNR ramp, there. This is a very good ramp, with a lot of parking. You will be a very short (and much easier, usually) boat ride from the South Channel.

As Got Fish stated, a good map will serve you well.

For an online, zoomable map of Lake St. Clair, check out www.marinecruiser.com or www.tourlakestclair.org/interactive-map.html

If you are going out there new, I recommend you get a NOAA nautical chart or contact Wayne Carpenter at Xtreme Bass Tackle to see if he has any of his fishing maps in stock. Toll free 877-485-2223. He has a nice hybrid of the lake.

None of these are complete on their own for navigation since you have to know the latest lake levels to adjust the contours but they show you where things are in relation to each other.

I'm with DK.  Cut 10 years or more off the learning curve by getting those maps.  I wish those were around long ago.  I'd probably be very rich from saving gas buzzing all over LSC looking for fish.  They are a great resource to get started out there and well worth the $$$.

The full set is expensive now but considering that every time I fish on St. Clair with my truck and boat I spend $80 to over $100 in truck and boat gas, and it used to be $200 or more per day when I fished tournaments, it is pretty easy to justify something that saves a ton of boat gas because it puts you right on lots of good areas and spots that have produced over time. I have said it many, many times - I sure wish every major lake had something like this when I was trying to be a bass pro, spending thousands traveling around the country to new, big lakes.

One way to meet some of the members is to consider fishing one or both of the MadWags Memorial Members bass tournaments. There's one on the East side in May on Lake St. Clair and the fall event is on the West side - the next one coming up on Sunday, September 30 on Lake Skegemog.

These are inexpensive $7 total entry per person for members and family members too. Kids are welcome with their parent(s) or with permission. The events are designed as a hang out, get to know fishing day for members. Small payback and lots of prizes. Check out the Members MadWags Memorial Open Fishing Tournaments section below under Tournaments.
