We wanted to let everyone know that we have started our Sturgeon charters in the St. Clair River and its channels. We have also added a new great upgrade to these charters by offering our clients an Executive Sturgeon Charter. We will be running Sturgeon charter from "Mr. Muskie III" our 31’ Tiara. This boat offers a lot more comforts and has the hardtop and canvas to allow people to get out of the elements a bit and warm up or take a break and have something to eat and drink at the dining table. It will allow more people to enjoy these awesome charters and let them see and experience the thrills of these great prehistoric river monsters!
We will be offering upgrades to those who have already booked Sturgeon trips as well as those who wanted to get out this season and would like the comforts of our larger boat or have more people that they would like to come and experience this awesome fishing! Please contact us and let us know if you would like to upgrade your Sturgeon Charter to our Executive Trip or if you want to set up a Sturgeon Charter, (Executive or Regular), while we still have available dates!
We have had a great start to this part of our season with excellent success! We have had an average of 4 Sturgeon boated on these trips and have had 7 Sturgeon over the 60 inch mark and one Monster Sturgeon that was a whopping 70 inch. We had one trip that landed 7 and had a triple header and boated all 3 Sturgeon!
We are pleased that we are now able to offer these new Executive Sturgeon trips for those that wanted to go but they have larger groups as well as our regular Sturgeon charters in our smaller boat “River Raider”. Now we can accommodate everyone who wants to come and experience the thrill of fighting the largest prehistoric river Monster the great Lakes has to offer!
Give us a call to set up or upgrade your trips! Click here for Executive and Regular pricing.

Well August has come and gone and left us with some great fishing days on Lake St. Clair. We have been chasing the Muskies as well as the Bass this past month and have had some great success with both species.
The Muskies have been chasing the bait around the lake and with the weather that we have had that the bait was getting blown around quite a bit. The weeds also reeked their havoc with us and making us work hard for the Muskies caught.
We have still had a 7 Muskie average caught this past month and have also had many days with double digits caught. We boated over 3 Muskie in the 30 Pound Club and welcome and congratulate those new members!
The Bass fishing charters have averaged 4 dozen per trip. We have had days with fewer numbers but the quality has been awesome. We boated many Bass over the 4 to 5 pound mark and caught 2 Small Mouth Bass over 6 pounds.
September starts the Fall fishing season and usually brings some weather changes that can be both good and bad. We expect the Muskie fishing to continue to be great as we have not had our full dose of summer yet!
We will be fishing for Muskie through the end of October and will transition to chasing the Monsters as Fall approaches (not that we ever stop hunting the trophy Muskie)!
We will be also starting our Perch trips this month as they have been starting to school up a bit. We have been catching quite a few during our Bass charters lately so the time has come to fill the freezer with fresh lake perch.
We are starting our Sturgeon charters this month as well. If you have not yet experienced the trill of battling a prehistoric River Monster, then book your Sturgeon trip now!
We hope this finds everyone well and look forward to hearing from you and getting you out fishing this Fall.
