Few fisheries around the world can boast being "World Class" but you can rest
assure that Lake St. Clair and the Detroit River are indeed two of those places.
  It is where limit catches of walleye are expected and multiple fish days for
muskies are the norm, with many being of Master Angler size. That being said, book your trip today with Heatwave Fishing Charters the #1  recommended fishing charter.


Lake St. Clair

Lake St. Clair at 430 square miles in size is an outstanding fishery known predominantly for its smallmouth bass, musky and walleye fishing.  This triple crown of sportfish has earned this lake top honors in numerous surveys as one of the top fishing destinations in the United States.

Detroit River

The Detroit River 32 miles long is an excellent fishery within a large, urban area.  Each spring, as many as 10 million walleyes leave the deeper areas of Lake Erie and ascend the Detroit River in search of rocky substrates to spawn on, creating a fishing frenzy known throughout North America.
