On Lake St. Clair, muskies are no longer “the fish of 10,000 casts”
You don’t need to be an expert to land a huge fish
Lynn and I are experienced big-fish anglers, and know which end of a rod to hold. But for many anglers, a trip on St. Clair is their first time encountering a truly large fish, and the fishing methods are unfamiliar. So the captain and his mate not only set out the complicated array of trolling lines, but they’re right there to lend a hand when you hook up. Above, Captain Jones (left) watches, as Lynn’s stout rod flexes under the weight of something interesting.
FishPredator, like many charter operations, also supplies all the tackle. That’s essential, since most anglers don’t have the kind of heavy-duty gear this fishing requires, let alone the oversized—and expensive—lures favoured by local anglers (above).
