we are going to fish for walleye on the detroit river next week where should we launch and could you recommend a place to stay overnite..thanks mikePosted on April 7th, 2016
Hi Mike, I would suggest you launch at the La Salle, ON public boat launch. From there you should see the packs of boats fishing on the north-side of Fighting Island and also right in the channel south of the boat launch.
The most popular places to “jig-fish” for them now is in front of the salt-docks (east-shore, La Salle, ON), right in the middle by the main channel, north-side of Fighting Island, and on the Michigan side right across the river in front of the steel-mills. Best presentation, 5/8 oz. round jig rigged with either a 4″ brown plastic worm (no action tail), or a 4 1/2″ Fin-S-Fish plastic minnow. I don’t know of accommodations right in La Salle, we usually have rooms booked at the Comfort Inn, Windsor, ON and trailer down.
