Lake St. Clair Smallmouth Bite on the Increase

There is little doubt that the bite has picked up on Lake St. Clair and the St. Clair River.  More and more we are seeing smallies chasing our hooked smallie up to the boat to try to take the bait away from it.  Down deep, the bass are coming back for a second or a third try after a missed hookset.  These are good days and a lot of fun.

One of the key reasons for the uptick in the bite is the shift in feeding habits from mayflies to baitfish.  Bass are coughing up baitfish on the way to the boat and on the boat.  We are seeing bass busting minnows on the surface, casting to them and catching them.  An unusual number of white bass schools on bass spots are another indicator that baitfish are present.

Marked Maps customers will find a record number of spots covered in Marked Maps Live! this week!

Don’t miss the Lake St. Clair Fishing Show this week (it should be posted by Saturday morning).  We cover “how to make small adjustments to get the big bite” and more!
