After a crazy first half of the year, my walleye season is officially wrapped up. We will be back after it next year on a normal schedule that I will announce later. Walleye fishing on LSC was pretty good this year just like last year. Everyone took home plenty of walleye when we got out. A little chop on the water helped with more fish. It was a lot of fun this year. We caught a ton of walleye including 2 cohos, a sturgeon, and a nice Muskie. I got out with my parents on the last day and my dad caught a 13 lb whopper catfish. That was fun on a walleye rod. Accidental perch catches were insane with some jumbo perch being caught on crawler harnesses. On my last trip, the perch was so aggressive I eventually switched to wyandotte worms and we were finally able to start putting walleye in the live well. Too bad, we ran out of time. When I was full-time on LSC we would start fishing perch in August. I honestly think a person could go out there and womp on the jumbo perch right now. It’s gonna be a great year down there. I may have to sneak down there again. Hmmmm Crawler harnesses were best with gold and copper being the top producers although every color took fish. 18 - 20 fow. I also got out on some inland lakes. There is much fewer walleye but I like the challenge. Days after high winds are best to push the weeds to the shore. Size 9 and 11 Flicker minnows were best. I've had some interest in booking trips for next year. Next year I will be starting my walleye season on the Detroit River on April 17th. I will run trips down there for a month and then start trailing the boat to where the fishing is best in the SE. I really like being mobile at that time of the year. We can hit St. Clair River or Lake St Clair if the Detroit slows down. I will fish SE Michigan til June 15 -20. Then I will head back up to Frankfort for the rest of the year. Book now and save $75 off a 4 person charter for walleye. From my charter buddies, Lake Trout fishing remains awesome and there have been some monster catches. The salmon have been around some days. Look for that to get better as summer progresses. I am starting charters again up here full time. If your in the area this week, or the rest of the summer, feel free to get a hold of me. If you are looking to get out with me on the big boat, please let me know ASAP as the earlier I know, the better chance I have at scheduling a deckhand. Really looking forward to catching some of these big King Salmon that are being caught throughout the lake. Also, I am curious to see how much interest there is in December and January walleye on LSC. The fishing has been really good the last few years til the lake ices over. I usually come down for a couple weeks for the holidays and the Novi Fishing show. This year I was thinking about offering charters. Send me a message if this interests you. Also, don’t forget, we now have online booking. If you want to book a trip quickly and not wait for a reply from me, all you have to do is go to www.chromeseekers.com. Hit book now. Pick the trip and date you want. Then pay for the deposit by credit card. Super easy and quick. Thank you to everyone who has stuck with me through this mess. I look forward to the rest of the year, especially now that I have salmon on the brain. Time to start working out to fight some of these monsters. Stay cool and stay safe Captain Dan
My internet is acting real screwy. Please check the blog over at Fish Seekerz for this month.
So I am trying to integrate this report page with my Wordpress but am struggling. Unfortunately I have ran out of time. My next report will be much better. Thanks for looking.
Wow, where did June go? Here today, gone tomorrow. This update for my email subscribers is coming a little early but I wanted to get it done before the holidays and a whole bunch of crazy adventures coming. For anyone who isn't following me, you can either click the WordPress follow button on the right or send me an email to get on my email list. If you haven't already seen it, my buddy Calvin Doctor put together a little video for some advertising for me from the Detroit River. If you would like to check it, go to the link below. [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6TwaBUse5cA&w=560&h=315] June was my least busy season with the loss of my full-time charter captain job for another company at the last minute. I managed to book a few last minute trips but it was not as busy as I was hoping. Which was in a way kinda cool because I got to fish with some of my best friends and family. When you charter fish your weekends are pretty much shot because that is when most people can go charter fishing including my friends. So a little break made that time available. The few trips I did run on LSC were very successful with high numbers of fish caught. This is a great time of the year to go because the walleye are very hungry and I have noticed it takes weird fronts to shut the fish off completely. They are not very picky this time of the year. If you are in the fish zone trolling at the right speed, your probably getting bit. Color did not matter most day and it was game on most of the time. When the fish were just picking at it, I would put a crawler through the head and cut it in half. This way the fish have to bite some part of the crawler which helps me put more fish in the boat As the pleasure boaters start to show up on the lake, the fish can get picky. For some reason, I didn't take a lot of pictures from this month other than on the Inland Lakes. Around early to mid-June, the fish moved out to the center of the lake away from the shallow early spots. Some walleye can still be found in shallow but we are concentrating on the deep stuff now preferably 15 - 20 feet of water. I have also heard reports of great fishing in canada and the St. Clair River. LSC should have a fantastic year for perch fishing. While walleye fishing we have been pulling in some real nice perch to go along with the customer's walleye. Some of the biggest perch I have seen in years. I am hoping to get out there once before I head north for the remaining part of summer. When I wasn't getting our vacation rentals ready for the summer, I spent some time trying to learn the inland lake fishing for walleye. I have a couple lakes near my house in Beulah that I plan to fish when I can't get on Lake Michigan. It was a little different than Lake St Clair. My first trip fun fishing I tore up the walleye. But, there was a learning curve to the trolling scene and now trolling is pretty much impossible with the pleasure boaters on the water. Tons and tons of debri on the surface making trolling pretty much impossible. If I can get out again I will try casting baits and using jigs under floats for the walleye. [gallery ids="3882,3881,3880,3879,3877,3876" type="rectangular"] I have a couple vacations plan for the next couple of weeks but I have a few selected days open for walleye. This will be it til next year. July 7th all day and July 8th all day. I also have July 13th morning and the 14th open. Monday I will clean up the boat and will be headed up to Frankfort for the rest of the summer chasing Salmon. I have a few weekend days open along with weekday. The same goes for September.

The salmon are big again this year and I can not wait to get after them. If you want to get out, please let me know so we can get you on the books.
