Detroit River Walleye Fishing

Spend the day with Detroit River Walleye Fishing and let them show you what makes the fishing in Detroit so memorable!

These waters are known for Walleye, and more – with any luck, you’ll have tight lines in no time. You’ll target your catch by trolling, jigging, or maybe something more specialized in this area.

Young ones are welcome, so get ‘em offline and onto the water! Children must wear life vests, so find out if the appropriate size is available on board. And, you can’t go wrong with snacks so that nobody gets grumpy on an empty stomach!

You’ll be welcome aboard an 18’ Lund aluminum fishing boat with a capacity for 3 passengers. It comes with all the essentials. What’s more, this vessel is wheelchair accessible. You’ll find rods, reels, and tackle waiting for you, along with lures. Live bait is available, but be sure to ask about it so you know if you’ll be catching it yourself.

Before coming aboard, you will be required to buy a local fishing license for everyone in your group. This information is usually available online, or you can ask the captain. Some species may be off-limits or require a special tag, so make sure you know what to expect. A few items to bring include sunglasses, sunblock (non-spray), and bottled water. Alcohol is allowed in moderation, so long as you avoid hard liquor as well as glass bottles.

Now, come aboard with Detroit River Walleye Fishing and get hooked!
