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.

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.
