Lake St Clair Fishing Reports - Feb 2019

Lake St. Clair: The Clinton River out at Harley Ensign opened back up because of the warm water discharge over the weekend. Most of the lake had an inch or so of water covering the ice. The action was good for bluegills, sunfish and pike near the Raft Restaurant. Anglers did well for a few days at the end of Cotton Road while taking bluegills and some jumbo perch however the action did slow. Those walking out from the Crocker Road DNR ramp caught some perch on jigging spoons with or without minnows and wax worms in six to eight feet near Gino's. Most were six to eight inches with a few as big as 10 inches. Perch were caught from the Clinton River Cut-off to the Raft Restaurant. Most were small, but about half the anglers did manage to take some decent size fish.

Detroit River: Airport Bay at the south end of Grosse Ile was producing some perch ranging 10 to 12 inches.

Lake St. Clair: Anglers took nice catches of perch in front of Gino's when jigging red and chartreuse teardrops tipped with minnows. Those venturing about a mile out from the Clinton River Cut-Off had some luck spearing pike. The perch action was spotty however some were getting 15 to 25 decent size fish from all access points when they found the fish. Those targeting bluegills near the Raft Restaurant were getting limits however the bite was slow, and it was an all-day effort. There was open water off the point at the Harley Ensign launch however anglers were still fishing in the bay opposite the river side.
