Here's what's biting.

Muskie! Lake St. Clair & St. Clair & Detroit Rivers season started June 6th. When you want muskie there is just simply no better place in the world to catch record numbers. 50 plus inch size fish are common! Last year we had a top water bite like I have never seen before anywhere! I can't wait to do it again!

Walleye bite Walleye is still strong with many limits being caught. The St Clair River is fishing at its best as we enter May and stays good for the rest of the summer!

Smallmouth Bass Fish monster smallmouth with us on what has been called the best smallmouth fishing on the planet, Famous Lake St Clair! last year my son Garrett had a trip where 2 guy's caught 147 smallmouth bass in one day. 100 fish days are not uncommon, with many of these small mouth bass between 4-6 pounds.

Book NOW to get the best muskie action anywhere!
