Detroit River 4/21


Recommended Posts

:thumb::thumb: Despite the known muddy like river conditions, I tagged along with Indybleck for a Detroit river expedition.

We worked the steel mill / mud island areas from 7am - noonish.

Water visibility was not good, maybe 4'6". Threw everything possible at them, 1 oz jig, blue ice plastic, is what hooked the most fish. Brought home a single good eater, and lost 2 NICE fish on the way up...very heart breaking.

Thanks Tom for the trip! No place better to be! :thumb:

Thank you for the report Wheels! We found that adding stinger hooks to our baits decreased our losses from hookset to the boat. I am headed to the Detroit River tomorrow. Hopefully the fish will cooperate.

Stingers were on, with the light bite that was the bite, I don't think I was setting it hard enough. When I would pickup the fish were just on the line, didn't feel any "hit"...

Good to get out....:thumb:
