April 10th morning charter was a huge success and we caught 20 fish before the rain came.  Had 6 fish over 26" including Steve's personal best at 11 lb 2 oz! Best presentation was a 1 oz Firetiger jig with a camo Thump! worm.  Big fish all came from 15-18 fow at Army Corp, River rogue, Great Lakes Steel and 2 rocks.  Great trip!!

Ended up w 18. Most between 18-24". Had a 8lber and a 9lber. Caught fish in lots of spots including great lakes steel, two rocks, army Corp, and the red bouys at Wyandotte. Chartreuse jigs w camo worm and 3" pearl/blue bio mino were the most productive.

No Fish, 35 mph winds. Got blown off the river.

04/06/2013 - Captain Paule Doute

Strong ESE winds made for a long morning on the water. Bite was slow but we still had a great day cutting up and laughing with the Cowhy group. We had plenty of cold, wind and waves on the Detroit River. We managed to land 5 walleye and lost a real nice fish at the boat. Fished the channel edges and mid depth flats from Mudd Island to Libra Marina. Chartreuese jig with a brown took most of our fish. Wind ESE 15 to 20mph; water clarity clean to stained; water temp - cold! Here is a picture of Troy with a couple of nice ones from our morning charter.

Captain Lance Valentine - 04/05/13 Afternoon Trip

Day one on the Detroit River is in the books! Went 9 for 11 with 3 over 30". Pier 500 area in 23-25 fow. 1 oz chartreuse and firetiger Thump! Jigs with camo Thump worms and 4" emerald shiner bio minos stingers were a must!
