Sturgeon Charters Have Started!

We wanted to let everyone know that we have started our Sturgeon charters in the St. Clair River and its channels. We have also added a new great upgrade to these charters by offering our clients an Executive Sturgeon Charter. We will be running Sturgeon charter from "Mr. Muskie III" our 31’ Tiara. This boat offers a lot more comforts and has the hardtop and canvas to allow people to get out of the elements a bit and warm up or take a break and have something to eat and drink at the dining table. It will allow more people to enjoy these awesome charters and let them see and experience the thrills of these great prehistoric river monsters!

 

We will be offering upgrades to those who have already booked Sturgeon trips as well as those who wanted to get out this season and would like the comforts of our larger boat or have more people that they would like to come and experience this awesome fishing! Please contact us and let us know if you would like to upgrade your Sturgeon Charter to our Executive Tripor if you want to set up a Sturgeon Charter, (Executive or Regular), while we still have available dates!

 

We have had a great start to this part of our season with excellent success!We have had an average of 4 Sturgeon boated on these trips and have had 7 Sturgeon over the 60 inch mark and one Monster Sturgeon that was a whopping 70 inch. We had one trip that landed 7 and had a triple header and boated all 3 Sturgeon!

 

We are pleased that we are now able to offer these new Executive Sturgeon trips for those that wanted to go but they have larger groups as well as our regular Sturgeon charters in our smaller boat “River Raider”. Now we can accommodate everyone who wants to come and experience the thrill of fighting the largest prehistoric river Monster the great Lakes has to offer!

Mr. Muskie Summer Sizzles
We are well into the peak of Muskie fishing season! We have had some very strange weather this summer, producing a wide range of temperatures and weather patterns. These weather changes have brought many storm fronts through the area, which has made for some really interesting days of fishing. The numbers of Muskie caught have been very good for the past month or so as we have averaged 7 to 9 fish boated per trip. However even on days with fewer fish we have noticed the quality of the Muskies has been excellent with the majority of them being over the 40 inch mark! The monster Muskies have also made their presence known in our live wells as we have boated 12 Muskies that were over the 30 pound mark and our largest of the season so far was 54 1/2 inches and weighed 39 pounds.

Mr. Muskie Charters - The Heat Is On
We are well into the 2014 fishing season and things are really heating up with the fishing. We have continued to have excellent days Bass fishing with catches exceeding the 8 dozen mark. The Canadian Bass season has opened recently and now we are able to hit some of our favorite Bass spots on the Canadian side. We have been getting some great action since the Canadian opener and anticipate those awesome catches to continue through late August.

Lake St. Clair a great North American fishing destination
The Lake St. Clair fishery - which includes fish, people and habitat - is widely regarded as one of the best in North America, and provides significant social and economic benefits. Fish such as yellow perch (the favorite food fish in the Great Lakes) and walleye represent significant protein sources. Economically, the Michigan waters of the Lake St. Clair system generated $36 million in economic activity in 2004 alone. Fishing is, for many, a lot of fun, and as a recreational fishery, it provides many physical and mental benefits to people. Moreover, a healthy fish population equals a more stable ecosystem.

Mr. Muskie - The Swing of the Season
Well we are swinging through the 2014 season. We have wrapped up our Walleye fishing season in the Detroit River. We had some great success as well as many days with limit catches. It was an awesome start to the season and tons of fun was had by all our customers! We found that the early part of the Walleye season produced some huge Walleyes and the fishing was best on the Michigan side or the Detroit River.
