WHAT TO EXPECT ON A MUSKIE TRIP..
What lures or bait will we be using?
We will be using a combination of rubber baits and blade baits sometimes throwing a stick bait in the mix. Any size lure is fair game when it come to muskie. We use specialized St Clair baits depending on water temp, water colour and what the fish are doing that day. We have every bait needed on board. We offer both casting and trolling trips. Over the years I have accumulated a MASSIVE amount of specialized muskie lures to help ensure we have a successful day on the water.
What kind of waters are we fishing?
We will be fishing in the shallow basin of Lake St. Clair and surrounding rivers Detroit River, St Clair and Thames. Open water muskie fishing is an awesome experience, keying in on small structure points that produce big fish. Shoreline drops, weed beds, mud lines, current breaks, muddy water, rock structure, humps we fish it all! We know exactly what these big muskies key in on at different times of the year and those are the areas we target.
What is the best time of year?
The best time of year for muskie fishing is all year around. As the water temps start to drop the fish start putting on the feed bag, we usually get the fattest fish in the fall. Summer can produce large fish as well as good numbers. We have had days catching 10+ muskie in both summer and fall.
Catch and release?
We support catch and release muskie fishing 100% and any muskie we catch will be released to fight another day. We can take proper photos and measurements which will allow you to get a replica made.
