Trolling on the East side or North End Sand *DELETED*

Went out Saturday out of Hunter's Point. First time I've ever fished the East Side of the lake. No way we we're going to be able to fish the West side and enjoy ourselves. Got stuck in the sand because I got to far over to the left heading out of the launch. This was before I got past the rocks. Once I got myself pushed free I followed another boat out and it was fine.

We saw a few walleyes boated on the reef we tried to do some slip bobber fishing on. My partner and I just caught one small perch.

Set up to troll before dark off of the sand at Hunter's Point. Caught 2 fish, and lost 2. One of the fish was a big one but I had the drag set to tight. We only fished until ten o'clock though so overall it seemed pretty good for us. Firetiger seemed to be working for us and for one boat around us.

My temp reading was 56.4

I couldn't say whether it was better shallow or deeper. We did mark a lot of fish around 12 to 13 fish but didn't pick up anything out that deep ourselves.

I'm going to be up Friday night after work and then come back around midnight. Not sure which side I'll fish. My brother just fished the West side last night Tuesday 9/27 and didn't get a fish. The weather/waves didn't cooperate at all though.

      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
