So where does a novice fisherman go for advice on fishing Lake Saint Clair? Over the course of a few years, I have found many resources to help with this question. Bait-shops are always good but you have to pick the right one. Some bait-shops will help you out but most will tell you their backyard holds the most fish in the lake.
Anglers can also find out a lot of info on-line. These days, fisherman can check out on-line fishing forums, blogs like this one, or Facebook pages to check out where others are having luck. On these sites, people will post where they caught fish, how and with what bait. Some will even give GPS coordinates. How awesome is that!
To help out the beginning fisherman, I have put together a list of my favorite resources for fishing reports on Lake Saint Clair. Feel free to bookmark this page so you don't have to have separate bookmarks for each site.
