All of these fish were caught on Lake St. Clair, since the 2010 year of fishing is almost over, I would like to do a recap of some of the biggest fish our members have caught.
The first fish is of a huge muskie my brother’s friend had caught, it sure is a monster. Definitely one of the biggest muskies I’ve seen pulled out of Lake St. Clair. I’m still waiting to catch a Muskie of this size, they sure are spectacular.
This is “Da Greek Yooper’s” monster smallmouth bass he caught, the bass was caught during the spring time when we were trying to catch walleye. We were just astonished when Andrew pulled this massive bass out of the lake, Lake St. Clair sure produces some super sized smallmouth bass.
You won’t find these smallies in the average inland lake you know. God I love the Great Lakes!
Next is the big northern pike I caught in the Grosse Pointe area of Lake St. Clair, I never caught a pike this big before. I caught it on a Berkley Powerbait jig, soon as I hooked the fish I knew it was huge.
When I set the hook and pulled back, all I felt was weight at the end of my line. It took some time to pull this goliath to the surface.
And soon as I did, thanks to Andrew’s (Da Greek Yooper) quick skills, he was able to manage net the big northerner without any trouble. When Andrew netted the monster, it started to do multiple belly rolls in the net. It took me a good 10 minutes to untangle the pike from my line and lure. The result is the picture you see in front of you, the biggest pike I had ever caught, I was quite proud of myself. Maybe next year I can catch one that is bigger!
Last but not least is my brother’s big walleye he caught in the Detroit River. From what I remember he said it was the largest walleye fish he had ever caught, it took some time to reel this big fish in. Walleye are just a magnificent fish, there’s nothing like them in freshwater. Everything from their cool night eyes to their razor sharp teeth, kind of reminds me of the character Riddick (Vin Diesel) from Pitch Black, they flash as you look deep into the walleye’s eyes. And the good thing is they make a tasty treat at dinner time, nothing tastes better than a well cooked walleye.
