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

We were originally fishing the eastern Lake Erie basin but couldn’t seem to find the big ones we were looking for. With upcoming tournaments we figured it was a good day do due some scouting in the river. We didn’t have much luck at the usual spots but I had remembered the rough location of a rock out in the middle of the river. We used our electronics to locate it and never looked back.

We caught 2-3 fish a drift… Basically all depended how long it took you to reel the last one in. Anywhere from 3.5 to 4.5 lbs. All in all we caught about 15 fish between 12:00pm-1:30pm in 14-22 feet of water. We only stopped because we had to leave.

Canadian Mist and St. Clair Goby NFT™ tubes rigged on a 3/8oz jig were the ticket!
