Big Smallmouth in Fall on Lake St. Clair

October 13, 2014

Fall is a special time of year to chase smallmouth bass on Lake St. Clair. The bass are schooled up, aggressive and it is the time of year where you have the potential to catch the bass of a lifetime. Reports have been coming in about bigger smallies and tournament weights are up.

One one recent scouting trip we caught several including this 4 lb. 14oz smallmouth on a crankbait and others like this 3 1/2 lb. smallmouth caught on an Xtreme Bass Tackle St. Clair Goby NFT™ drop-shot tube. Both were caught in Canadian waters.

Caught in 8 feet of water on a crankbait this smallie went 4 lbs. 14 oz.

This one was only 3 1/2 lbs but it was in an area with many more smallmouth in 18 feet of water
