Thanks for info-- I heard a couple other people talking about Senkos. I have not heard of them. Dumb or what I don't know. What are they.

Alot of recreation on this lake. I was there last sat as my wifes aunt has a cabin on the south shore. If you want Bass action or anyaction You'll have to get up real early and beat all the wave runners, skiers, tubers, pontooners,and speed boaters... Trust me, you'll be amazed. But yeah there are some nice bass in there. I snagged a few over the 18 inch mark last summer on the north docks. Good luck. oh, go to google and enter senko. All it is is a stick bait that has an enticing slow level sink to it when hooked properly. They have been the big craz now for the last few years. One more thing to spend your money on and get you in trouble with the wife... Good luck. smirk.gif

It is a pretty dirty lake, so I wouldn't feel too good about eating any fish that came out of hot shallow water there. But yes, the North docks are pretty good for bass, on both sides of the large point. I've also caught a few large bass on the milfoil or pondweed (can't remeber) edges around the landing.

      Made it out to North Center today by sunken island. Not very good, one perch. Marking them just not committing. Lots of water on ice, but ice is fine. 17 inches.    As far as north access, off Nelson road on east side there is an access. Put money in the box and don't be a Richard, I believe it is owned by a farmer and let's people use

      Lake St Clair is a blast. If you hit vermilion at the right time it will be right up there with that. No reason you can't have a 100 fish day with a good chance at many big fish. Going by my phone pictures I had a great day on June 17 a few years back ha. Theres no shortage of rocky shorelines and docks. I'm a fan of tubes myself but I know guys love their senkos.    I'm sure you'll get some more specific responses. Wish I had more time to chase them myself
