My father my uncle and my self will be heading up 26-29.Was wondering about river current, and how it will affect us. Last year we were using 3/8oz. jigs and drifting. I've heard some talk about having to go up to a 3/4oz. Are these guys anchoring and thats why they have to go with so much wait, or is the river just moving that fast. Also when we came up last year we where fishing 18-24 FOW, it sounds like everything is alot shallower, is that because of high water.

Any insite will help

THANKS

Not to tough being nice to fishermen! Can't imagine another type of clientelle with a lower "A-Hole Factor". Yeah, kind of bittersweet when we're full, especially when we have to turn away regulars. My mortgage holder likes to see the payments keep coming though.

The parking lot can get pretty tight after dark but give us a shout if you can squeeze in! Seems like boats and trucks get bigger and longer every year and our parking lot gets smaller.

If you read my posts you know I would rather knit a sweater than anchor but it does appear to be the way to go right now. We did have a group that were catching good eaters at anchor but got tired of it and drifted and picked up several upper 20's, so find some slower water behind a bend and give it a try.

Hey walleyeguy, not sure what arrangements you've made but we just had a kichenette open up. Give us a shout if it works for you.

      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
