May Madness at Mr. Muskie Charters!

We are now into May and our fishing season is well under way! We have been hitting the Walleyes down in the Detroit River since the start of April. The action has been getting better week by week. The monster Walleye are fewer and far between now but the numbers of Walleye being caught has increased tremendously. We have been catching many more of the good eating size between 18 and 22 inches. The Walleye catching has been accompanied by lot of small mouth Bass as well as the Silver Bass. The action during this time has been outrageous! The Walleye have been stacking up in our fishing grounds between the mouth of Lake St. Clair and the Ambassador Bridge. The action has mostly been on the Canadian side of the river for the Walleyes although some have been caught on the Michigan side as well. We have just started our Bass Fishing Charters for this season in the start of May and the action has been great! We are catching quite a few Bass on our trips averaging between 6 to 8 dozen. The sizes range between 2 to 4 pounds. We will have a better report on the Bass fishing in the next newsletter. It seems that they have been between 7 to 10 feet along the Michigan shoreline and actively feeding while protecting their beds. We still have some dates available for our Walleye Charters as we will run them through the start of June. We also have a some dates available for our Bass Charters during the early season catch and release on the Michigan side in May and the start of June. Don’t miss out on this great action as it will be gone before you know it, just like our available dates! Give us a call to set up your trips. We look forward to hearing from you and getting you out fishing! Tight Lines, Capt. Kevin Backus Contact Information
