Lake St. Clair: Anglers were catching walleye from the mouth of the south channel in 12 to 14 feet of water and in Anchor Bay near New Baltimore in 11 feet of water. Walleye were also being caught at the dumping grounds near the Canadian border in 16 to 18 feet of water. Some perch were caught in these locations as well. Smaller catches of walleye were taking place in the northeast portions of Anchor Bay and the north channel mouth in 12 to 14 feet of water. Small perch catches were coming in from this location as well. Smallmouth bass action was good near the dumping grounds in 17 to 19 feet of water and near the St. Clair light in 22 feet of water. Musky anglers were successful while trolling and casting in the eastern part of the lake in 15 to 18 feet of water. Musky were caught from the mouth of the South Channel, in Goose Bay, and near Strawberry and Grassy Islands in 10 to 18 feet of water. On windy days, the Fairhaven launch may be a good option because there are more sheltered areas available close by where anglers can still get in some fishing time. Walleye were biting on artificial lures better than on crawlers at times. Using natural and artificial bait may be a good plan with the changing weather

Lake St. Clair: Some perch were caught near the north channel, off Strawberry Island and near Grosse Pointe. Anglers fishing with drop-shot and artificial smallmouth lures caught numerous perch in 21 feet of water near the St. Clair Light. Walleye fishing was slow this week. The best catches came from the north end of the lake. Anglers trolling in the Doty Highway with deep divers in 30 feet of water did well and caught large fish. Orange was a hot color. Musky anglers did well while trolling from the dumping grounds to the St. Clair Light with crankbaits in 21 feet of water. The bass action was best on the north end of the lake. Anglers did well in the Sny in 6 feet of water. Fair numbers of bass were coming in from the metro beach area and between the dumping grounds and the St. Clair Light. These anglers were using crankbaits in 19 to 20 feet of water. The Detroit River was seeing a lot of bass action as well.
