Southeast Lower Peninsula
Detroit River – A few walleye were caught in the lower Trenton Channel. Anglers were jigging a large minnow near the hot water discharge off Gibraltar. For perch, no big numbers were caught but some nice fish were taken around Rat Island.
Lake St. Clair – Ice is starting to form in the canals however there is no safe ice.
St. Clair River – Has good musky fishing especially in the North Channel. Most anglers are jigging but a few were using sucker minnows if you can find them.
Saginaw Bay – Ice is just starting to form however no safe ice has been reported. Anglers might want to try fishing the shallow cuts and canals or off the docks in the marinas for perch. Boat anglers heading out to Spoils Island were catching walleye and perch but open water fishing may not last much longer.
Kawkawlin River – Last weekend, anglers were open water fishing for perch but the river has just frozen over.
Quanicassee River – Is also starting to freeze.
