Finally got muskie trolling on July 5. It has been two years since I have been able to troll for muskies on St Clair. It was a great day with clear skies and 80 degrees. Fishied all over Anchor Bay. Caught one muskie about 10 pounds and a pike about the same size. Felt great to reel in a muskie even though it was not a big fish. Both fish came on a boat rod 15-20 feet out hitting a wooden lure called a Leo. The lure color was perch and about 10 inches long. The pike hit about 10:30 am and the muske at about 1:15 pm. I was surprized that fish would strike a lure this size so early in the season. Had one other hit, but no hook up.

Fished with Jim C. and John K. from Jun 27th to 30th in the Belle River area, we got 16 muskies in the boat and had a couple more rips, most the fish were caught on T3's in various colors with the exception of 1 caught on a T2 and 1 on a Legend jr. most productive colors were the $9 guacamole and the killer frog, with the titty dancer bringin in a couple fish sizes were as follows 47,44,42, two 39's,38,two 34's 32,30 and a half dozen little guys I would estimate between 25-28" at least the future looks bright:) and we heard of a 51 caght by one of the guys stayin at the Dragon- look for the baitfish and you will find the muskies, seems like the 12-16' depths were the most productive and the water temp dropped down thru the week from 73 on saturday to about 67-68 F on tuesday, we ended up fishin a total of about 3 days , wind kept us off the lake in the afternoon on Sun and we ended up pulling rods around 3pm on Tuesday - Good Luck out there!

Went 2/2 on Sunday (6/28/2009). Very windy and was quite choppy. Definitely earned the fish we caught. Both fish were on down rods. We tried the usual setup, but it was not very popular. I threw on a 10 oz cannonball and put it 26 feet back, which got us pretty deep. Within 4 minutes the line was singing. On a blue frog Mason, we got a 41" with some girth. Speed was 4 mph, water depth was 18 fow between red barn and Belle River marina. The other was a 24" dink that didn't even pull any drag. Just found him spiraling behind us when we checked the lines. At least we didn't get skunked. I was talking to another guy after we got off the water (from Algonac I think it was) and he said his buddy fished all day and got nothing, but between late afternoon and dark, got 8 fish...so try in the evening. Tight Lines!

Mikey and I fished LSC on 6/22/09 and went 4/5. The largest fish was 20 lbs and 40" in length. The other fish were quite a bit smaller. Hot lure was Lokey Firetiger on the boardrod 2oz/42'. We fished south shore near the red barn in 14-16 FOW. The big fish never made it into the net, the hooks got tangled in the net and we just pulled it into the boat. All fish sucessfully released! Another Great day on the Lake!

Fished between 6:00 am and 12:00pm on Sunday 6/14. We went 5/5 out in front of the Red Barn in 14-16 FOW. Trolling speed was 4 MPH. Hot lure was a 6" Mason blue (3 fish) frog with white belly. Other fish caught on $9 bass, firetiger, and olive frog. 3 of 5 came on down rod with 10 oz at 28 feet back, so pretty deep. The other 2 came on board rods, 3 oz and 30 feet back. Water was greenish blue and fairly clear. Lake was pretty much dead calm. No clouds. Fish were all small, but all healthy. 24", 26", 29", 30", and 36". All but one went back healthy. The no so lucky musky hit the lure so hard and turned that the second set of trebles got stuck in his gills. Nothing to be done. Tight lines!

Went out musky fishing for the first time, and went 1 for 1 with a 48 inch, 30 pound musky off of selfridge in 8 FOW. Was a great time, and I released it back into the water. Hoping to get back out later this week again, good luck to the rest of you.

Wow - What an honor to post the first 2009 post on the Rocketmans site. The little guy (mikey) and I went 5 for 7 for our first trip out. All the muskies were small and not of usual size. But we sure did have fun. Six hit on firetiger and one on pike scale. 5 of the fish came on downrods and only 2 on the planer boards. The fish all looked very healthy, this bodes well for our fishing population. We were fishing south shore from 6:30am to 3:30pm. We also were visited by Canada Ministries who were conducting a survey. They didn't even ask for our license. Just a real polite and Cute girl asking questions about our fishing. Thanks to Rocketman and this site, who got us interested and started on the right path! Best of fishing fortune to all of you in 2009! Chaz and Mikey Seremjian
