Well it's nice to meet you bob my dad just retired and he says the same things about being able to fish when ever he wants.  I hope that is not to far for me but being only 22 i have a long way to go so i guess I'll stick to your plan fish, clean and sleep after.  I'll keep you posted on the St. Clair fishing Tight Lines

Hey Bryan

Nice talking to you also. Ah 22, not sure that I remember it at all. The years go by real fast. Took a drive out to Metro Beach to do some running and to take a look at the ice. There were about 15 people fishing on the lake via the day sail area. Talked to one guy coming in and he said that there was about 3 inchs or so of ice and it was getting a little shaky. He told me that he caught quite a few fish but they were all little and he threw them all back Looked like there was ice out to about a half mile or so then open water. Looked over at the back boat basin and there was about 10 people out there and they all had the same results, small fish. I am not sure that I will go out until we get some better ice conditions. Have you been over to the Raft, Fair Haven area lately? Just wondering how the ice is over there. Talk to you later.

Bob I haven't been to the raft lately not since last week I hoped to get out wendsday or Thursday but i know the ice is almost gone out there.  Fished a small lake in Clarkston with my dad last night and we did pretty good on the gills and crappies.  The only problem was there was 1-2" of bad ice that you drilled through first then an additional 6 inches under that.  What i am saying is the ice is real soft right now the augar blew through it in about 2 seconds but the fishing was good i would hate to stop and wait another week before it froze solid again. Keep me updated if you get out at all.

Good Morning Guys

Could someone please give me a address up my Lake St. Clair. Iwould like to punch it into  my mapfinder so I have directions. I'm coming up from Northern Ohio This weekend possibly depending on the reports I get t his weekend. I got out of the MArines a few years ago and have not made it up there since my dad use to take me.

Thanks

p.s. Any tips on where to try would like gills and perch.

I am not sure what you mean, an address of a place near by or GPS coordinates. In the city of New Baltimore which is close to a lot of ice fishing on Lk St Clair the MacDonald Public Library address is 36480 Main Street, New Baltimore, Michigan, 48047. The Gps coordinates for New Baltimore is roughly N 42.44.63-W82.44.04. If I were you I would hold for a while because the conditions are unfishable on the lake. There is no safe ice to speak of and I would hate for you to drive up for nothing. The weather outlook for here is not all too promising for the next week. Hopefully then it will start making ice. If you want I will post a note for you on this board when the conditions are better.

Bob
