The Michigan Department of Natural Resources, Mount Clemens Fisheries Research Station will be conducting a fisheries survey in Anchor Bay, Lake St. Clair, from Tuesday, May 27, to Friday, June 20, 2003. The primary objective of this survey will be to capture, tag, and release smallmouth bass. The survey gear used will be trap nets, fished along a 10-foot contour, between the Clinton River and New Baltimore. Each of the five nets will be marked with at least two floating flags and nine smaller bouys. The nets are approximately 650 feet long. Boaters and anglers are encouraged to watch out for these markers and to avoid boating or fishing near them.

Anglers who catch tagged smallmouth bass, or any other tagged fish, are encouraged to report the catch to the MDNR. Anglers can report a tagged fish on the web at, or can phone in the tag return to the Mt. Clemens Fisheries Research Station at 586-465-4771. Anyone with additional questions regarding the net survey should also contact the Mt. Clemens Fisheries Research Station.
