New to Lake St. Clair Walleye fishing.

New to Walleye fishing Lake St. Clair...I boat from Belle Maer harbor in Anchor Bay. Was hoping to meet some new Walleye fishing friends that could show me the ropes as where to go to find these elusive fish.  I've done my best to avail myself to as much information as I can...done online searches, joined an association, purchased ALL the necessary equipment and so on.  All I need is someone who can give me a push in the right "directions".  Thanks in advance.      Randy

First let me say welcome to the great world of walleye fishing. Lake St. Clair is a great walleye fishery, I have been fishing the lake for many years. Cranks and spinners both work great on the lake. A few years back I was killing the eyes out in front of the mouth of the Salt River. I usually pull spinners and start in May and go into June out in front of the Salt River. It all depends on when the fish flies hatch. I have my best luck there during the hatch. Use the old rule of "match the hatch" for color selection.

Another good spot in the beginning of the season is out in front of Metro Beach. As it gets later into summer, July-August, out near the shipping channel and the St. Clair light is another great spot. Just be careful when going out to the Light if you have a smaller boat. Being out in the middle of the lake during the afternoon it gets pretty rought out there. Hope this helps, good luck, and see you out on the water.

Hey Samuel,

Thank you for your response, I'm going to definetly give those spots a try.  I do have another question though, when you say out in front of the Salt river and in front of Metro beach, what exactly do you mean?  Do I literally fish in front of these spots or do I go farther offshore in front of these spots?  Sorry if I'm sounding really stupid !

Good question, my fault for not being more specific. I have had luck in areas of 7-20 feet of water for Metro Beach and in areas of 7-12 feet of water for Salt River. I usually listen to a few fishing reports to give me a general idea of where to fish then I just go out and troll different depths till I see where the fish are. Hope this helps and answers your question.

Samuel
