Southern Lower Peninsula Fishing Report – November 7th, 2014

Lake St. Clair

Walleye fishing has been good in the Detroit and St. Clair rivers. Jigs and minnows, both plastic and live, have produced good results. Lots of smallmouth bass are being caught in the rivers, too. Perch fishing has been spotty on Lake St. Clair. The best action has come to anglers fishing  along the shipping channel on the American side of the lake and in Canadian waters at the weather buoy and on the Belle River hump.
Lakeside Fishing Shops, (586) 777-7003.

Irish Hills Area

Bluegills are hitting on Vineyard Lake and a few walleyes have been caught on crankbaits on Sand and Devil’s lakes. Waterfowl hunting has been decent, so far. With cooler weather coming in, flight birds are expected any day. Deer hunting has been fairly good. Corn is coming down and about 50 percent had been cut as of last week.

Fishing pressure has been light in Livingston County. Bluegills are hitting on Island, Woodland, and Kent lakes. Leaf worms and wax worms fished in 15 to 28 feet of water are producing good results. Pike are hitting spinnerbaits and Dardevles on Chemung and Zukey and a few walleyes have been caught, too. Waterfowl hunting has been good and hunters are waiting for the flight birds to arrive. Bowhunting has been good. Bucks are on the move.

Fair numbers of whitefish are hitting single salmon eggs fished right on the bottom off the piers in Lake Michigan. A few steelhead and brown trout also have been caught, but fishing pressure has been light. Deer hunters report decent success so far with good numbers of whitetails in the area. Goose hunting has been good and duck hunters are finding lots of mallards and wood ducks on the inland ponds.

Bowhunting has been fair and deer numbers are down a little. Bucks are chasing does.
