Submitted by brice who fished lake st clair on 8-31

I went 0 for 1 out by the st clair lt this afternoon on a crackle frog believer on a boat rod (40ft-2oz) (the only one that I had left) I fished in 16 ft of water from noon to 3:30. my boat was broke into this week at emerald city harbor (2nd time this year!) and I lost about 25 musky lures (all of my terminators & wileys) so don't be lazy and leave your gear on your boat. this year I have lost 4 heavy trolling rods, 4 pen reels, & 2 tackle boxes full of musky lures. I just got home from lakeside with a handful of believers & will be fishing the canadian side in the a.m. I will post tommorow. I think that I might sleep in my boat with a baseball bat tonight!

Submitted by Joe who fished weather beacon and south channel on 8/28/02

First time out Muskie fishing in anticipation of hearing the first screaming rip of the drag. I prayed to the Muskie gods, fired up the Merc, and set sail with with my Dad (muskie virgin 2) and a friend (muskie virgin 3). Surface temp was 72 degrees and waves were 2-2.5 feet. We fished from 5:00P.M. to 9:00P.M. without even a bump. The day was not a total loss though, I learned that my Cabelas rod holders were better left to bass and walleye fishing. I thought at times the plastic was twist and break off with the pull of my baits alone. Hopefully, I will post again on Tuesday with a more successfull trip. Screaming drags to all. Joe

Submitted by catfish who fished Midlake, BR Hump, S.Channel on 8/24/02

Fished from 9am to 10:30 pm all over. Went 5 for something like 11 hits. All fish between upper 30s and mid 40s. No Hawgs. One decent fish on. The fish seemed like they were slapping the baits. Hooks came back with scales on them. Water temps between 72-76 degrees and the water really varied from clean to dirty. Most of the fish were in cloudy water.YB dark frog Believer off the boat was the hot rod, george Wahls special off the board , and the gold head BRS leach were good. We had raffled off a one day trip to the Hoosier Muskie Classic ( muskies Inc. Tourni). The two rookie muskie hunters said they really enjoyed it --- so it wasnt a bad trip.Catch and Release - get a graphite !!!

Submitted by Catfish who fished Anchor(weed) bay on 8/14/02

I thought I would get a workout in so I went to do a little trolling in AnchorBay. Instead of jogging, I got an Arobic workout for four hours of continous weed cleaning. I should have known better but I had to get out. It was weedy but just stringers no pods - thank goodness. Went 2 for 4. No size. Wind out of the SWS 15-25. 1-2 ft. waves. Water was cloudy. 75 degrees if I remember right. 1st fish was on a 10 inch walleye pattern- no weight 15feet in 11 feet of water off the boards. The second was on a Straight Believer Perch YB 8 oz and 3 feet + leader of course ( boat rod) . The next two fish were when I was bringing in my planer boards to go home. All fish hit between 9:45 and 11:45. Of course they would start wacking baits when I had to leave for work. Last two fish - one was on a crackle believer straight 8oz and 2feet off the boat rod. And the second was on an Org and Skunk, George Wahl special 2oz in the wash- 25 feet back . Biggest was 41 inches. Better than a 7/0 in the wrist !!! Catch and release especially the big fish !!! Good luck.

Submitted by Anthony who fished Anchor bay and lsc on 8-10,11,12-02

Went out Saturdy for a couple of hours in the middle of the day. One for two for 30". Sunday went from about 3-7pm, one for two again about the same size. Both of these fish were in anchor bay about 9 feet of water, and caught on jointed perch colored body bait. Monday went out with my buddy Jim and one for two again, boated a 43" 24 pounder. He only had one functional eye and scars all over his backside. Obviously not his first time on a boat. Fish was released quickly and left in good health. Caught over by gull island between some weed beds in about 10 feet of water on a jointed black and white right before dusk. I am a long time fisherman and first time musky man. This is the first season we have spent some trips specifically targeting muskies. We tied into a few in the spring and were addicted instantly. What an adrenaline rush that fish was, have caught many pike in Canada but these fish are truly in a class by themselves. Still waiting on the real hog I keep reading about. Apreciate this website and useful info from the reports. Keep em coming.

Submitted by catfish who fished Midlake, Bassett, S. Channel, SC light on 8/11/02

I felt undersized yesterday and Sunday- felt too skinny !!! Too bad it wasnt my stomach. Yes we popped a 50.5 " but she wasnt fat enough to contend with the Peqoud and other 30+ pounders. She was only 27 lbs. If she only ate like me !!! She would have been the winner - maybe a state record!! Oh well fished from 7am - 5pm with my buddy on his boat; Line- B -Out. We pretty much blew other than the 50"er. We popped 4 skiis and assorted baitfish - 38,35,32 , and 50.5 " were the mooskies. Chart crackle jnted BRS, 2 on Str gold bass BRS and one on a $9 bass Musky magnet. If I remember right 3 fish were off boards - cant remember the fourth. No weight and 5-6 passes. Anyways up top again. All the action was early in the day. Water was varying 74-76. Did best in the slightly cloudy green water. Slight chop. --- Catch and Release- All the Pigs !

Submitted by Jeff O. who fished LSC on Aug. 10/02

Fished in front of the Ruscom, Stoney Point, and almost to the Thames from 8:30 - 3:30. Air temp 85 degrees. Water was clearish (3-4 foot vis.), variable wind, waves 1-2 foot. Fished about 14-16 feet of water (I sonar) Lots of floating weeds. Went 7 for 8. 40, 41, 42, 36, 42, 41, 34. All healthy, good looking fish and all released well. Caught 4 fish on 8" Believers, one on a 7" Musky Special, one on an 11" Leo bait, and one on a spoon. Yellows, greens, and browns were hot. Not bad considering we had no electronics due to an electrical problem. Had a great day despite losing a rod and reel rigged with 12 oz and a nice jerk bait when a boatside 41" Muskie knocked it out of the holder. Sunk fast with all that lead. Also saw a charter boat unsuccessfully revive about a 40 incher. We picked it up and tried also but it was too late. Hate to see such a nice fish floating. Thanks Ben for the ride and a great day!

Submitted by John Seitz who fished St. Clair Ruscom on August 11, 2002

Well folks, managed to salvage my weekend on Sunday after losing my crew to "Home Improvement" on Saturday. I convinced the wife and sister-in-law to do a little boating/sunning, aka. Pulling wood on Sunday. They agreed as long as they got lunch at the "Sandbar" and I only drug them around for a couple hours. Deal made!!! Was well worth all the work. We managed a nice fatty. I started at the Ruscom in 17 foot, water looked nice, not marking much though. Worked to Stoney Point and got in tighter to 15 foot and water was silty with a few weeds, but LOTS of baitfish. Finally got a bite on YB perch wiley 30/2 on boards, never really hooked up. I trolled back toward the Ruscom and marked nice bait. Got big rip on long rod, 30/4 Litwin 9$ bass Wiley. She looked to already be packing on that late season weight, she was 47" and very fat. Well folks not a bad day for less than 2 hours of trolling. Also, my wife does not know it, but she is about to become a full time Mooskie troller. Check her record when aboard for big fish. In 4 trips: 51", 45", 47", 46", 49", 47".

How did your hero, the Rocketman, do today?
Kinda Sucked!

We went fishing on Saturday, 08/10/02 from 2:30 PM until 10:00 PM at Lake St. Clair, for Muskies. It was clear, 90 ° F and the wind was S 5-10 mph. The last few days the weather was stable. The water temperature was 75 ° F and there were 1 foot waves. The water color was clear green, visability was 2-4 feet, and we were fishing in 20 foot deep water.

We went 1/2 for 3 today. Bruce got the biggest one, a 38 inch Pike that went for a Crackle Sucker Terminator T3 fished on a long rod. Only count it as 1/2 fish cause it was only a cousin of a muskie. Overall the hottest set-up was a mystery to me and the action was mid-depths.

Fished way out in the middle of the lake. Marked fish good including about 7 or 8 size 4 fish, lots of size 3s and plenty of bait too. Water color looked perfect. Weather conditions decent with the last few days stable. Just enough wind for a chop on the water but not uncomfortable. Not many floating weeds. It seemed like we should have kicked some muskie ass but noooooooooooo, that was not the case. We had only three hits. The only fish we boated was a pretty big size pike that was out there with the mooskies in the middle of the lake. It jumped straight out of the water. We also had a nice size muskie hit a T3 Pukebait on the same longrod set up about 50 and 3. It jumped and threw the bait in the air. Finally at 8:55pm we got a major fish on a T3 Fag Frog but that one jumped and got off too. Very strange - all the fish went airborne today and we also saw some other ones swimming on top and jumping too. Also they hit lures with no similarity at all. Crackle Sucker has a pearl white belly, Pukebait has a yellow/green belly and Fag Frog has a flourescent orange belly. Not even the belly colors matched. I was so confused....

Landed 5 Muskies,1 Pike and one or two Smalljaw(s). 45,43,30 and two smaller fish.Hot baits were : Helin frog Lokey, Firetiger Lokey and a Terminator. Board Rods 2oz five passes, 5oz three passes. The 45 and 43 inch fish scaled at 20 lbs and 18lbs on the Boca grip. Our best action was between 8pm and 9pm. 6mph. All other details are fuzzy due to alcohol posioning.

Submitted by Catfish who fished St. Clair River on 8/8/02

Did a little casting and caught nothing in about 4 hrs. So much good looking water. I didnt check the temp but the water was chalky maybe a foot visability and clearing. Probably about 75 degrees. Tried downsizing and caught a bass on a copper bladed Cattail - 6 inch. I was then rediculed, criticized, made fun of, demoralized, and had my gender questioned by my buddy Chris from " The Hulk" so I went back to throwing big baits !! Anyways the trip was better than catching a 7/0 in the arm !!!! Let the Pigs go and get a graphite !!!! If anyone fishes that area shoot me an Email pls.

We found some nice pockets of weeds and one horney Musky 39.5 inches in about 4 hrs. One for one. 2 0zs and 6 passes off the boards. I had a rookie mooskie virgin driving and we had some complications along with snapping my kicker in half, almost lost a wicked bait which we had to do search and rescue for, lost a release , and lost the handle to my Magnum Beckman net which I have had for years. I think I was 12 for 20 on 15 lb weed pies. Wow - they are fun. Well enough bitchin - we got the muskie virgin a fish and got a rather BS day out of the way. Water was about 75.5 and was slightly cloudy. Good luck -Catch and Release. Oh yes there was a potential sighting of the great "Slimetime Crew fighting a Hawg while three Muskie Babes in beaver skinned Skirts were cheering them on !!" This sighting was not substantiated by official sources thus cannot be confirmed nor denied at this time.

How did your hero, the Rocketman, do today?
Kinda Sucked!

We went fishing on Saturday, 08/03/02 from 3:00 PM until 9:30 PM at Lake St. Clair, for Muskies. It was mostly sunny, 90 ° F and the wind was NE changing to SE 10-15 mph. The last few days the weather was warming. The water temperature was 78 ° F and there were 2 foot waves. The water color was clear blue, visability was 2-4 feet, and we were fishing in 18 - 20 foot deep water.

We tried all over the south channel area. We never did find good concentrations of fish anywhere. The hits that we had were about 3 miles due east of the 9 Mile tower. One was a pike so I only counted it as 1/2 a fish. One of the muskies got off near the boat and it looked to be a decent size. The other one that got off was of unknown size, just popped a board release then nothing. The ures hit were TX $9 Bass, the pike went for the T3 WBS Bluefrog, mystery hit was T3 FireBass, and T3 Mackerel Bluefrog got us a high 30 inch size muskie.

Left Huron Point at 5 pm with a partial crew, went to the spillway to fish so that I could return at 7 to pick up the final member, fished 5 to 9 PM. Dropped first line, down rod 6 feet 6 ozs running a Mason Muskie Killer Blue Frog. Brother-in-law (Muskie Virgin) was asking how to work the drag. I picked up an unrigged pole started to show him when the first rod went off, he caught his first muskie with only about a minutes worth of trolling - 44 inch. All in all went 4 for 4 all on same rig all in same spot. All Muskies released quickly and healthy - only bad note forgot the camera Brother-in-law will only return to Louisiana with stories - no pictures.

HAWG- O- RAMA !!!! My buddy Chris ( from "The Hulk " ) and I tapped into the fat bastards this morning. Fished about 4.5 hours 7:30- 12:00 and went 4-5. 2 FIFTIES, two 40 inchers and a good rip. Two fish on a JNTed perch w/b BRS 8 oz and 3 passes - boat rod, Two hits on a jnted, Leo, perch w/b, board, 6 passes and no weight. And One fish on a long line two ounces and 8 passes which was 50 inches as was one of the boat rod fish. A little revenge for getting impaled by that 7 /O the other day !!! We didnt over play the fish . But both were sluggish when released. The 9.9 Yamy trolls down slow so I can keep the boards spread but do not need to circle the fish- thus they dont get overplayed BUT boy we had to take our time with both releases. I guess it is just a good reminder that this time of the year not to to keep the fish out of the water more than enough time for a couple pictures and a measurement and get them in a nd released quick. Well by the end a couple more 50 inch "potentially " 40 lbers someday were released well. Hopefully no one wacks them before they get huge. Catch a fatty and let her grow !!!

Hawgstock !!! Fished with my buddy Brad Sat . 6:30am till about Midnight. Popped 7 or 8 fish and missed a few. 51.5, 49, 42, 41,41,41, is what I remember. Worked late and didnt get any sleep Friday night thus my memory is a little jaded. Little to no weight. Everything But a rip and 41 on the Boards. Hot baits and colors- BRS 8 inch gold bass Str.- 3 fish, Leach BRS jnted 2 fish, BRS YB Perch jnted , YB Believer 10 in str. We hit the pig at 10:30 at night. Ran it in to get weighed in the Tourni. Got her in my buddies homemade livewell right away after a couple measurements. Put a little ice in to cool Mrs Piggy off (34-35 pounds on Chatillion). Made the run to the Bell to get her measured. They took way too long to measure her. Took her out - got pictures and released her. I jumped in and spent about 20 minutes working with her. She was pretty wooped. That warm water near the Bell wasnt easy on her either. Anyways when she finally went - she went strong. Maybe she will 37-38 lbs in the fall !!!! I might get a graphite of that fish. Nice Spots. Sunday we got blanked for 3 rips. We ended up tied for third. Catch a Hawg and let her grow.

OUCH- Motherscratcher !!! Paid the price the first 5 minutes of fishing Monday morning. Started early by myself approx 6:30 am I was dishing out rods. Wind coming out of the SWS about 15 mph. Got the boat up to speed. 5 minutes later a mooskie was ripping my long line. No weight, 8 passes . I brought the fish up and went to unhook the 42 incher. The fish decided he would let me know how it feels and put a 7/0 in my wrist and proceeded to jump around. Wow - that wasnt fun. Anyways I pulled her in the boat -cut the hook. Just missed and artery, tapped a tendon, and just missed the bone. I got the hooks out of the fish - measured her and got a good release and packed up for the hospital. I think I will go back to the welders gloves. I was wearing the Berklys but they do not go high enough up the arm. Anyways I was lucky and unlucky as I know I would have hammered them. Catch and release - especially the Hawgs .

Hey muskie hunters. I traveled to exit 81, all the way down Lapeer Road. In Search of Pike and Tiger Muskie. In Metamora theres a lake called Big Fish Lake. Its ruled by Pike. A-LOTTA-PIKE I thought Id give my Muskie set up a wirl. We got there at 8:20, the D N R siad they only allow 20 boats on the lake at a time. There were 8 boats in line waiting. Of course they were jet skis and ski boats cuz no working man, "AKA fisherman' is gonna wait it out on a Sunday. We got out of Dodge, tried to find some hidden secret lake/wasted a an hr. or 2, then went to Nepessing. Soon as I got Four lines in the water the storm hit. We went to a pub and returned shortly after only to battle weeds. Lost a wiley and a Mason, caught nothing, bent my prop. Friends dont travel this route, people from up north or out of state drive the extra mile to battle muskelunge in our house, Ill never leave my own back yard in search oh em agian. GENTLEMEN, good luck in the water.

What a week. Two buddies from Mad Town, WI came in to fish. It was an adventureGot visited by "The Man" , caught a ten pound Catfish on a Magnum Daredevil, tore up a prop, got bounced around a bit in the waves, and caught some fish. 12 fish over 44 inches but none over fifty. Ruscom , Stoney, and Midlake gave up some decent fish. The fish at the Ruscom were up high. Did well on light olive wormy st3, wormy t3, blue frog w/b t3, firebass t3, 9$ bass t3, Org tiger, all white, and crackle frog 10 in. believer and 10 inch yb believer straight among others. Tuesday that front came in and seemed to cool everything off. Caught nice fish at primetime Moon phase about every night. Most fish came off the boards or long lined behind the boat. Wacked the prop at DNR launch next to Beacon Cove - I believe- So be careful. "The Man" was in a white SeaSwirl Hard top with OPP decals about a 22 footer I/O. Very new looking boat with a little sweetie on board. Anyways a somewhat slow week with some decent fish. My crazy Buddies - one is currently tops in the PMT and the other one of the premier guides in Madison were very impressed with the LSC and said they had a ball. Good luck and catch a hawg. Get a replica !!! Save a Hawg for me !!! CAtfish

Fished Wednesday, July 17 from 6:00pm – 9:00pm on Lake St. Clair; west of the St. Clair Light. It was sunny, 90 degrees and the wind was South, 10-15 mph. Water temp was mid 70s and there were 2 feet (+) waves (again). Went 1 for 2, caught on our hottest lure this year, the Mackerel Perch on board at 4/30. About 30 inches long, this fish was very appreciated for it was the fist muskie Bill had ever caught (It always helps to have a virgin on board). The miss came on the same presentation, but it just never hooked up. Tough fishing conditions, big waves and lots-of-lots of floating weeds. By 9:00 I was ready to call it quits.

Fished a total of about 22 hours from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon, all in the daytime. Weather was stable, very sunny and hot, in the 80's. Wind varied from a light north wind to calm. Water was clear although a slight green tint existed. Fished in 18 feet of water. Gnats everywhere. Water temp. was 72-74.Went 1-3 Friday evening, 5-6 on Saturday and 4-4 on Sunday morning. Got a 49" 29.25 lb, 47" 25.75 lb, 44" 22 lb, 42" 18 lb, 39", 38.5", 38", 32", 31" and a 29". The two biggest fish came midday, one at 12:30, one at 1:15 (different days). 7 of the 10 came on planer boards, including all 40 inchers. These fish were on wileys and stalkers. The 3 upper 30 inchers came on boat rods. Two on bucktails and one on a stalker. Colors were bluefrog (2 fish including 29 lber), WB Perch (4 fish including the 47", 44" and 42"), chart/black bucktail (1), WB Frog (1), gold/yellow bucktail (1), YB Frog (1). Fish came from 15 to 40 feet back on the boards with 0 to 4 oz weights. Boat rods were 15 to 50 feet back.Got checked by the man on Saturday, thought I was legal, but my dumb#ss friend didn't have his license or any other id with him (he left it in the car). We offered up that he just take my friend away but he wouldn't do it. Actually, he was nice enough to let us run back and get it but it wasted and hour or so of fishing time and a bunch of gas. Got checked again on Sunday but just for a fish survey. Saw several people get their rods confiscated so be careful if you run extras. I would recommend sticking with sliders or staying in the US.

We fished from 9:00 AM until 4:30 PM in 10 to15’ of water. The water temperature was 69 to 72°F and the waves were less than 2 to 3 feet. The action was close to the boat so I didn’t even get the planer boards wet. We went 6 for 8 on the day. The first musky was a 36” fish that hit a Cobra Perch Musky Magnet on a down rod set at 8/8. The second fish struck about 10:40 and was our largest of the day at 48.25” and 28.4 lbs. hitting a WB Mackeral Perch Musky Magnet at 8/8. The third fish was a 36” musky that hit a WB Perch Musky Magnet on a boat rod at 25/2. The fourth musky measured 42” hitting a YB Mackeral Perch Musky Magnet on a down rod at 8/8. The fifth musky was 46” and over 25 pounds hitting the same YB Mackeral Perch Musky Magnet on a down rod at 8/8. The sixth musky of the day was 32” fish hitting a Red Belly Perch Musky Magnet.

Fished Thursday, July 11 from 6:00pm – 8:00pm on Lake St. Clair; east of the channel between the St. Clair Light and the south channel. It was sunny, 80 degrees and the wind was N-NE 10-15 mph. Water temp was mid 70s and there were 2 feet (+) waves. Went 0 for 3 with one real screamer on the 9$ bass off the board. This fish was taking out massive line for over 15 sec. While I was trying to set the hook, I burned a couple layers of skin off my thumb by trying to slow/stop the spinning reel, so I resorted to tightening the drag. After all this, the fish told me who the boss was and let go of the T3 and swam away. The other hits were on 9$ bass and Pixie Dust steelhead, both off boards, 3oz/30feet. On such a gorgeous day, you would not have guest, but the waves were working me pretty hard so we quit early. More then likely, I’ll be on the lake for most of the day Sunday.

Trolled for musky from off the GPYC over to the dumps and around that general area. at 815 am, just north of the dumps, a nice fish hit a T3 WB Perch. To the boat it came and I totally choked on the netting of this fish and turned her loose with three tugs of the now tangled net. It was an easy 20 lbs. My buddy was not so pleased but showed great self discipline and shrugged it off. of course that was the only action of the day, we quit at noon. fish hit the bottom bait of a rocketman two way rig, on a downrod approx. 15 feet back, all on a 1 lb ball in 15 FOW. Water on the canadian side of the channel was much cleaner and had much less floating weeds than the US side of the channel. US side was almost unfishable. ..not happy about the net job, but nonetheless we SAW a nice fish!!!...andy
