Why stay at a hotel when you can stay at one of several “great location” vacation homes.  Local sponsor’s of the Lake St. Clair Guide Magazine offer lodging for 1 guest to 12+ guests.  Our homes provide on-site boat dockage or immediate access at one of our many boat launch ramps in the best fishing & most scenic areas.

From a Kayak to a Cruiser, fish for smallmouth bass, muskie, walleye, perch, pike, sturgeon, and more.  Boat around tiny islands and secluded channels and observe the many species of waterfowl and our peaceful surroundings.  Swim and enjoy all your favorite water sports in Lake St. Clair’s blue clear waters!

Lake St. Clair is a fresh water lake that is surrounded by Michigan and Ontario, Canada.  The lake is located about 6 miles north of Detroit.  We have 430 square miles of water area.  It is 26 miles from the north to the south, and about 24 miles from east to west.  We are connected to Lake Huron via the St. Clair River, and then flows to Lake Erie via the Detroit River.  The St. Clair River is 39 miles long and flows into the largest freshwater delta in the U.S., which is called the “The Flats.”

The lake and rivers, along with the delta of the North, South, and Middle Channels are some of the greatest bass, muskie, sturgeon, and walleye fishing in the world!  Call early for reservations…rooms fill up fast!

Michigan Law Changes

The D.N.R. has now implemented a new Muskie tag that is needed to keep a Muskie. Most practice catch and release but we may encounter a Muskie that dies or we may have it in the live well and they could say that it was in our possession. So the thing to do is obtain a Muskie tag, which are free when you purchase your Michigan licenses. It is also necessary to have both the license and tag in your possession on all fishing trips!

Canada Law Changes

There are plenty of fish on the U.S. side of Lake St. Clair!  But, if you should decide to go to Canada, they have a new policy to protect their borders.  Everyone has to check in with their boarder agency C.B.S.A., whether it is a personal trip or on a charter. This would be the same process as if you were crossing the border by land, only now U.S. citizens on a boat may do it over the phone.  You can call Canadian Customs at 888-226-7277 when entering Canadian waters to fish.

They will NOT allow anyone into their country that has been convicted of a felony. Canada considers any drunk driving offences as a felony, however that may be over looked due to number of offences and time lapsed from the offence. It is at the discretion of the officer on the phone. They have restated the law to allow lenience to the drinking offences due to the number of people who had them, so they have left it up to the officer taking the call.

This law has been in effect for many years but just recently has been enforced with stringent penalties for noncompliance. It is a simple and easy process that is not intended to inhibit any fisherman but only to protect their borders from illegals and from terrorists.

NEW – All persons fishing in Canadian waters must have proof of citizenship.  A driver’s license is not proof of birth – You must have your passport, birth certificate, or an enhanced driver’s license.
