A fun morning fishing on the St. Clair River, followed by Weigh-in and fish fry at Tom and Diann Gorguze’s Algonac cottage. DAS members can count their results towards 2019 AOTY scores. Best five walleyes by weight. Guests are welcome. Entry is $10 per person and includes $5 towards Big fish pool.

When: Saturday, April 27th
The captains meeting will be held 5:30 AM at the North Channel DNR launch (across from the Kroger). After a brief meeting, boats can hit the river Fishing starts at 6:00AM and concludes at 11:00 AM. You may launch beforehand. Coolers must be in line at the weigh-in by 12:30 PM. Fish Fry 12:00 PM – 4:00 PM.

Where: NORTH CHANNEL DNR RAMP
The DNR Ramp is located at 2635 Pointe Tremble Rd, Algonac, MI 48001
It is located roughly 18 miles north of the 23 Mile Road (exit #243) on I-94.
Weigh-in and fish fry location is 2815 Pointe Tremble.

Bait shops near Algonac:
Brian’s Bait Next to the Fair Haven Ramp,
Master Bait behind the Sunoco Station (just after the Colony Tower and St. Johns Marsh), Minnich’s (just north of town next to Snoopy’s Bar).

Rec Gas is available at the Citco station next to the Sunoco.
You don’t need a big boat to fish the St. Clair River. In fact, you don’t even need a boat. The St. Clair River also offers numerous locations to fish from the shore. This outing has evolved into a club favorite. Last year was a banner year for walleye in the St. Clair River, and the outlook remains good for the future.
Vertical jigging is a favorite technique for early spring eyes. Use your trolling motor to correct for the wind and drift with the current. In addition to walleye there is a migrating population of Atlantic Salmon moving through the area this time of year. Locals target Atlantics 10’ to 20’ down near Decker’s Landing. However only Walleye can be weighed at the scales.
To stay in compliance with new trailer boat regulations, be certain to empty all boat drains, and remove any vegetation from your boat and trailers before leaving the ramp.
If you would like to attend this event, or have questions, please contact Tom Gorguze 248 343-8397. If you are looking for a ride, or have room for an extra angler, let Tom know.
Perch and Walleye donations from your winter catch are welcome.

Who's bringing boats to fish the Algonac outing Saturday, and who might have room?
