Half in Canada and half in Michigan, Lake St Clair is a preferred destination for boating and fishing. This 275,000-acre lake lies in the southeast corner of Michigan, at Detroit. Anglers seeking their own stretch of bank to fish can choose a spot from over 130 miles of shoreline. This is known as a big fish lake and there is quite a variety of fish species to pursue. Walleye, perch, trout, muskie, crappie, bass, sunfish, catfish, northern pike and sturgeon all thrive here. Lake St Clair fishing guides and charters offer an array of fishing trips for most all these species. Ice fishing here is famous for really big perch, but many other species are likely to grab your bait as well. Giant muskies, big smallmouth bass, trophy walleye and big northern pike are all caught with some regularity. Numerous boat launch ramps and marinas are located up and down the Michigan shoreline. Campgrounds, RV parks, shopping dining and lodging are all convenient and enhance your stay for a short fishing trip or an extended vacation.
