Hop aboard one of the many Lake St. Clair fishing charters on offer, and explore one of the best freshwater lakes in this part of the world! Lake St. Clair is a shallow section of the Great Lakes, stretching from Michigan to Ontario. It’s the perfect place to relax and let your hair down, while enjoying world-class fishing in the heart of the Great Lakes.

While it may be smaller than its neighboring lakes, Lake St. Clair is a force to be reckoned with! Featuring a variety of fish species, it’s a must-visit destination for any freshwater fishing enthusiast. You’ll find that Musky, Walleye, and Smallmouth Bass are at the top of the list. However, other species like Northern Pike, Perch, Bluegill, Catfish, and Carp are all in the cards as well.

What kind of trip should you go on? Well, depending on what you’re looking for, you can opt for a half day trip or a full day one. If you want to relax and have fun with your family, a half day trip is a great choice. But if you’re looking to explore as much as possible and fill your bags, consider booking a full day trip. If you’re after a specific species, you can also find a specialized trip and focus solely on that.

The only thing left to do is find a charter. Luckily, you have a variety of options on Lake St. Clair. Fishing charters are dotted all along the shoreline, so you can visit places like Detroit, St. Clair Shores, and Harrison Charter Township. On the Canadian side, Lakeshore and Jeannettes Creek are great starting points!

Rules & Regulations

Lake St. Clair fishing charters typically include everything you need. However, you’ll need to get a Michigan fishing license for everyone age 17 and above. If you plan on crossing over to the Canadian side, get an Ontario fishing license as well, and bring your passport with you.

January

Lake St Clair is covered in ice at the start of the year, but don’t let that stop you! Hardy anglers can hook into Walleye, Pike, Perch, and more.

February

Winter fishing continues, with few anglers to be found on the lake aside from those who are setting up camp and carving holes in the ice!

March

As average temperatures start climbing past 40°F, the lake begins to thaw. Anglers within reach of open water can get a headstart on Walleye fishing.

April

Many Lake St Clair charter boats are up and running, ready to make the most of the peak seasons for Bass and Walleye. Book your trip early, cause they’re filling up fast!

May

May is all about variety on Lake St Clair: Bass, Walleye, and Perch are all biting vigorously, and Musky season is just around the corner.

June

Hit the water for some of Lake St Clair’s most popular catches, including trophy Musky, Pike, Bass, and Perch!

July

The fishing keeps on getting better, as the season for trophy Musky continues and Sturgeon fishing re-opens. Pike, Walleye, and Perch are all at their peak.

August

Smallmouth Bass head to deeper water during the hottest time of year, but you can still land a quality catch with a little know-how. Let a local guide show you where these bad boys are hiding!

September

You never know what you’ll hook into come September—anything from Musky, Pike, or Perch to Catfish could be on the end of your line. 

October

Anglers can hook into up to 20 Muskies in a day! The Pike and Perch bites are slowing down, but you can still expect good action through the end of the year.

November

Bass fishing can be excellent in fall, while Musky and Pike continue to provide good action. Some charter boats will keep running until the ice sets in around mid-November.

December

Come December, you’ll see anglers setting up their ice shanties on Lake St Clair. You’ll have to work a little harder for your catch, but you can still hook into Walleye and more.

Just enjoy yourself. Remember that it is called fishing, not catching. Being out on the water is just the stress relief you need to reset.

We caught 3 walleye and a multitude of perches - small - so probably go twice to increase chances of catching a sizeable one. Was a pretty good day ln the water anyway - with a very enjoyable Eric. Thanks,

Make sure you dress for the weather. The river is wide and the wind will certainly be a factor for how cold it is going to be on the water. Nothing worse than getting into the fish and having a bad day because you are under dressed. You can always take some clothes off. I recommend that you go with someone that has experience with fishing the river for your first trip.

You can expect to catch bigger fish in April but the number of fish caught might be better in late or May. The weather conditions and water temperatures can make fishing in early April at times a bit difficult. We had to reschedule a trip as a result of bad weather.

We had a great trip with Captain Eric! He knew exactly where to go and we caught a variety of fish: walleye, huge small mouth, perch and cod! His boat is awesome and comfortable. Hope to fish with him again when we get back to Michigan.

Captain Eric was great! Worked hard and let me be as involved as I wanted to be. He would have done all the work and just let me catch fish. His boat is new and top notch. His knowledge of the lake and fish habitat are second to none. Conversation was great. He got me a nice Muskie on my birthday. He cleaned the fish and packed them up for me to take. Had an awesome time! Will definitely be booking another trip with Captain Eric!

We didn't have the best luck with the catch (3 pike, 3 rock bass), but that's just how it goes sometimes. Still a 5 star experience and would highly recommend for anyone looking for a local charter. Captain is a consummate professional and does his best to ensure a fun and rewarding experience.

Captain Eric is the real deal! He helped my 6 year knock 2 knee species of fish off his list: Walleye and perch (which was delicious!). It was also a tough day for the walleye and we were still able to get multiple of them. I was also able to hook a bonus Musky which was amazing! I 100 percent recommend booking with him. His knowledge of the lake and of fish is unreal. We had a blast!

Nick is great! He knows his stuff. There was a handful of boats near us, and we were the only boat catching fish. We had to catch and release half of what we caught so we wouldn’t go over our limit. I absolutely highly recommend. It’s a no brainer!

My Grandson, nephew & I, met Captain Nick and his teenage son at the dock early in the morning and traveled across the eastern end of lake Erie. The captain and his mate expertly deployed the small flagged rafts carrying baited hooks. It didn't take long for the action to start and it continued all morning. We caught dozens of walleye, catfish, and other varieties of fish. This fishing crew knows their business and is pleasant and polite with their customers.

Captain Eric was extremely knowledgeable and kept us engaged the entire time. The brand new Lund boat was very nice, high tech and played better on the wake and waves than the small bass boats I had previously been on. He started with the rules that were simple enough for my little cousins to follow, both 07 and 13, and followed it up with conversation, fun and of course fish. If you have never fished a charter, I highly recommend Captain Eric. I cannot wait to visit with you again Cap'n.
