  1. Lk. St. Clair and St. Clair River
    My buddy and I and our dads were supposed to go to Canada in the middle of June but with the border being closed we are trying to find other options to at least salvage some of the trip. We live in Cleveland and have been led to Lake St. Clair by multiple people. We don't have a boat so we are...
  2. Lk. St. Clair and St. Clair River
    Launched from Harley Ensign in the late morning in the relatively calm and very sunny conditions. Worked close to launch most of the day, including along the breakwalls and docks up the river a bit, where there was a thin layer of ice early, which was gone later. Dragged big baits, often pumping...

    I am new to musky fishing and recently purchased a bass pro brand musky rod, fairly priced and bought 40lb braid. Line kept getting frayed and breaking. Ended up hooking a really nice musky had it by the boat then it took off and snapped my line. Bought some 65lb suffix 832 and its seems to be...

    Anybody ever target or catch one out of any of these lakes? Even accidentally would be helpful. Was thinking about giving Margrethe lake a try as it’s only an hr away from Harrison. Wanting to get away from the usual budd lake. Just looking for new water
  6. Tackle Talk
    Hey all, looking to talk to some seasoned muskie anglers who can recommend baits and colors. I'm not going to ask for your secret spots or ask for a seat on your boat. I plan on paying a guide to go out with in the spring who can help me build fundamentals. I want to have some of my own gear...

  8. Lk. St. Clair and St. Clair River
    Launched from Harley Ensign (S River) for a later afternoon/evening outing, and man it was a clown show, what with rush traffic, having forgotten to set up some things, then finding out the motor I just got back for the shop had its throttle misaligned as attempted to start it. But I got enough...
  9. Cold Water Species Fishing
    Looking for a solid baitcaster to pair with my Musky rod. Looking for something that I can pair with some 50 or 80lb PowerPro braid, and will handle casting up to 6oz lures. Not exactly trying to spend $500 on the Shimano Tranx 500. Anybody have something they like using?

  11. Trout Fishing, Fly Tying, Techniques
    I have 3 fly rods an 8wt, 9wt and 5 wt. I fish for salmon and steelhead in the spring and fall. This is my favorite, what I spend the most time doing, and what really got me back into fly fishing after only doing it for bluegills when I was really young. In the summer I do a lot of pike/musky...
  12. Saginaw Bay and its Tributaries
    anyone ever catch a big or small ski in the bay or river? It’s the Great Lakes can’t see why there would not be any! Might bring the salt stick next time and give it a try!
  13. Tackle Talk
    Hey all! My wife has given me a $200 allowance to purchase a new rod and reel to cast large musky and pike lures. I was thinking a medium heavy rod with a baitcaster, but wanted to get some advice/suggestions. Specific make/models would be appreciated as well! I'm new to baitcasters as well...

    Hey y'all, I'm from Texas and going to be visiting Traverse City around Labor Day in September to see some family and fish.

    Would appreciate if anyone could tip me off to some good lakes for pike or Muskie fishing near lakes of the north or otsego lake. Also the DNR website indicates rainbow trout in pencil lake. Has anyone ever caught any as of recent?

  18. Lk. St. Clair and St. Clair River
    I moved to the Detroit metro area a couple months ago from Northern Wisconsin for work and I am starting to feel the fall musky fishing itch. I would love to get out on Lake St. Clair but unfortunately I don't have a boat, I also don't have any of my gear here (not yet). If you are a serious...

  20. Warm Water Species Fishing
    I've had a cottage on Lincoln Lake for about 4 years now. I've fished every part of the lake and caught a couple nice bass, and a good amount of hammerhandles. Anyone ever fish this lake before? Who's catching the 'eyes? Anyone know if there's still muskie in here? Tons of weeds so it's hard...
