Late March through Mid May
As soon as the ice flows stop coming down the Detroit River,the fish start to bite and we start our Detroit River walleye charters. It usually starts off slower with bigger fish biting. This transforms into more action with typically smaller fish as the season goes on. The second and third week of April are the best weeks and fill up fast. Early May trips are more likely to see 50 fish days. During these later trips we usually catch many different species ( smallmouth, white bass, walleye) and it is a great time to take the kids out.
We will sometimes use live minnows on our jigs really early in the season, but this is mostly a plastics fishery. Wyandotte Worms, Finesse Minnows, Gulp , and other assorted plastics most likely will be dressing our jigs( Detroit River walleye love plastics). St. Croix and Fenwick jigging rods will be on board for use during your Detroit River charter.
We supply jigging rods, all of the jigs , stinger hooks, and baits that you will need for your trip.
I will teach you what you need to do to consistantly catch walleye on this world class fishery.
