Well it was a tough one out there yesterday! My dad, Brother, and I launched at 6 am in Hudson and started our day at the power lines there. Got nothing, and so we decided to go up just past the turn bridge and got a few eyes to bite, but nothing big. One keeper, rest had to go back.

I was watching other boats to see if they were doing anything and all I saw was white bass and smallies being caught.

So overall it was a SLOW day, and a tough one with that wind crazy.gif, ended up getting 3 in the boat, which by the looks of things was a good day.

Anyone else go out? I drove by at like 10 pm and saw a few guys out doing some night fishing, just wondering how they did. cool.gif

I was one of the guys doing the night fishing that night. I had my limit after about 1 hour of fishing. I caught them deep in about 25-30 FOW with a jig and crawler combo. Just vertical jigging it. They went nuts for the chartrouse jig tipped with either crawler or leech. Caught about 20-25 fish total. The limit I caught consisted of two 18 incher and 4 between 15-17 inches. Also caught a few saugers too.

Got out with the wife and fished from 11-3. We boated a dozen eyes and sauger mostly sauger trolling cranks. We kept 3 for dinner. We put in at Hudson and didn't realize we had to pay till the wife saw the sign walking to get in the boat.Pretty windy but a beautifull day to get out,and not bad fishing either.

      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
