Circle the Lake Tour-signs Now Installed Around Macomb County

A Tour around Lake St. Clair is now even easier--either by boat or now by Automobile.
The Lake St. Clair Tourism Initiative, along with Macomb County Department of Planning & Economic Development have successfully started to install the 50 or so signs within Macomb County designating the travel route closest to Lake St. Clair.  With the assistance of Mark Hackel, the local communities, and the Road Department of Macomb County, the signs are being fabricated and strategically installed.  This is a year long effort by those associated with this project to bring greater awareness of the incredible assets associated with Lake St. Clair and all of the very interesting historic, cultural, or maritime venues that deserve a greater look.  The signs have directional arrows that can direct drivers around the Lake in a Circular direction (either way).  Our hopes are that St. Clair County, The City of Detroit and Wayne County, and the Canadian local governments will follow suit.  Just in case, a Circle Lake St. Clair interactive map can be found at www.TourLakeStClair.Org website.  Each of the sites chosen are also within walking distance of the shoreline, so that they can be enjoyed by the boating community as well.
This is the start of something big, that is putting the world-class assets of our freshwater lake into the minds of the person looking for something as simple as a nice meal at one of the many restaurants, or a weekend that extends all the way around the lake full of cultural and historic sites.  Whatever your choice, the signage is just one more tool to help residents and visitors to Lake St. Clair truly enjoy it's ambiance and thrill.  With one of the largest recreational, and fishing communities in North America, Lake St. Clair is just awaiting to be explored by the approximately 8 million people within about a one-hour drive of it's coastline.
Enjoy the scenery, people, and places...and come back often!
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.

The monster Walleye are fewer and far between now but the numbers of Walleye being caught has increased tremendously. We have been catching many more of the good eating size between 18 and 22 inches.

Stop Drowning Boats with Ethanol
After coming out of this great recession, it is likely that we all look for ways to save money where we can as we go through life. But important for boaters to know, even though it may cost less, E15 gasoline is not an option for boaters. The current Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) requires more and more ethanol be blended into the U.S. gasoline supply despite the fuel's harmful effects on engines, including those of boats, but also those in automobiles, motorcycles and small equipment like chainsaws and lawnmowers.
