Muskie Season is Here!

Well we are swinging through the 2015 season. We have wrapped up our Walleye fishing season on the Detroit River. We had some great success as well as many days with limited catches. It was an awesome start to the season and tons of fun was had by all our customers! We found that the early part of the Walleye season produced some huge Walleyes and the fishing was best on the Michigan side of the Detroit River. When the waters started to heat up and the action swung into full speed then we found that the best fishing was on the Canadian side of the river, which was most of May. We saw less big Walleyes but many good eaters. The customers who came out for this Walleye gold rush were happy to take their share of it home to enjoy!

In May we started our Bass Charters with the early spring catch and release on the Michigan side. We have had awesome success with those trips and have averaged between 4 to 6 dozen Bass caught in our 6 hour trips! The action has been great all along the Michigan side of the lake along the shore between Metro Beach and the mouth of the Detroit River. They have been found in between 8 to 13 feet of water depending on the time of day and time of the month. These trips have been great fun for all who were out and it is the best action to take the kids out for some real fun fishing. They are able to handle these fish with little help and the fight is awesome whether it is for the kids or adults! The Bass action will continue through the start of September, so if you haven’t gotten out to experience this fun filled action, give us a call and set up your trip now.

Muskie season is opening this weekend! We will be out chasing these monsters as they are just finishing up their spawning period and should be hungry. Last year’s opening tournament produced some great fish and the largest that was caught was a whopping 37 pound Monster. We anticipate the action to be good this season and may be even better than last season, which is hard to believe! We have already caught some awesome Muskies during our Walleye season in the Detroit River. We are welcoming any of our customers to set the new season record as well as beat last season’s best, a 40 pound Monster!
We are now booking up quickly for this summer action with Bass and Muskie, so give us a call to set up your trips while we still have available dates.

We look forward to hearing from you and look forward to getting you out fishing!
