Detroit River:  Walleye anglers were taking fish in the Trenton Channel and off Wyandotte.  Most were using a jig with a live or artificial minnow.  Some perch were caught in the canals.   

Lake St. Clair:  The waters are still stained after the weekend storms.  There is also a lot of debris.  The only good reports were bluegills and sunfish caught in the canals.   

St. Clair River:  The water was stained and had floating debris.

Lake Erie:  The water was muddy after the storm.  Those trolling Bandits in Brest Bay or using a jig and minnow off the Metro Park caught a few walleye.

Weather forecasters are calling for a very wet weekend. Current forecasts are calling for anywhere from 20-40 mm of rainfall on Saturday and 20-35 mm on Sunday. There is also the possibility of thundershowers developing that could lead to local increases in rain. Areas to our north are expected to see a mix of freezing precipitation. The weather system is still a ways off and there is some uncertainty in its track, but it is expected be a large regional event.

Detroit River

Despite the cold water temperatures and windy conditions, anglers were taking a few walleye on jigs tipped with minnows.

Lake St. Clair

Perch were caught along the shoreline. Perch, walleye and Atlantic salmon were caught just outside the channels of the St. Clair River when trolling spoons and bottom bouncers. Perch were caught in the marinas and the Clinton River Spillway.

Walleye fishing slowed, but those catching fish did so when jigging minnows in Ontario waters.

Lake Erie
Surface water temperatures were 39 to 40 degrees, and walleye fishing was hit-or-miss. The southern half of the lake was producing more fish, including some limits.  Some were trolling in 14 to 16 feet around Luna Pier and Turtle Island. In Brest Bay, fish were hitting stick baits throughout the water column in 15 to 17 feet. Most were fishing 25 to 30 feet back from the board with Bandits, Reef Runners and Husky Jerks. Good colors were purple, pink, gold and black or black and white. Catch rates were better in the stained water. A few white bass, smallmouth bass and even a couple steelhead were caught when trolling. A few boats did well when jigging around Turtle Island with a purple hair jig tipped with a minnow.

Lake Erie / Erie walleye limit increased by 20%
« Last post by LEO on April 11, 2018, 09:58:33 PM »
Fishers on Lake Erie will be allowed to catch more walleye this year and roughly the same amount of yellow perch as last year.

The Lake Erie Committee has agreed to a total allowable catch of 7.109 million walleyes and 10.498 million pounds of yellow perch for 2018.

The committee includes fishery managers from Michigan, New York, Ohio, Ontario and Pennsylvania. It operates by consensus and relies on biological assessments to inform this decision, according to a new release.

The yellow perch limit is near the 2017 level because the population has remained similar to last year’s, the release stated.

Of the 10.498 million pounds allowed this year, Ontario will receive 4.945 million pounds.

The walleye limit is a 20 per cent increase over the 2017 allowable catch of 5.924 million fish.

“The increased TAC reflects positive recruitment during the previous few years and increases in population biomass,” the release stated. “The Lake Erie Committee is optimistic about the status of walleye populations.”

Ontario will be allowed 3.061 million walleye in 2018.
