WHAT TO EXPECT ON A WALLEYE TRIP..
What lures or bait will we be using?
We will be using a combination of plastics and live bait that I have found work best while jigging the river.
When fishing the spring walleye run on the Detroit River hold your rod tight. Multiple fish over 30" can happen in 4-8hr trip and lots of fish over the 6lb mark is common on good days.
What kind of waters are we fishing?
We will be fishing a mixture of deep and shallow drops along the shore lines of the river. Jigging sand and rock that has strong current rushing along it.
What is the best time of year?
The best time of year for jigging walleye is the early spring when big female walleye travel up the river to spawn. The exact time we start fishing depends on when the lake and river is ice free.
How many walleye to expect?
We have many record setting days on FishLSC Charters. 98% of trips over the walleye season we catch limits of nice walleye plus more. We have days every season catching 70-80+ walleye between 4 people in just a few hours.
What Are The Limits On Walleye
There is no size limit on walleye in the Detroit River, however, limits apply to the number you can keep.

You can keep the fish you catch, after your trip I can clean the fish at the launch at your request.
To sustain a trophy walleye fishery I prefer to release the bigger female fish.
