In my family, fishing is a solitary sport enjoyed together. I’ve watched my husband and kids take in the calm and peacefulness of the lake, lost in their own thoughts, only to erupt in noise and excitement the next minute when someone yells “Fish on!”
How fortuitous that we live close to metro Detroit’s Lake St. Clair, a fisherman’s paradise. The tournament-worthy lake ranks as one of the best fisheries in North America for small mouth bass, muskie and walleye and rates nationally for 19 other species. It was voted 2013’s Best Bass Fishing Lake by Bassmaster magazine. One national pro even dubbed it “Best Bass Fishing on the Planet,” so, yes, it’s worth the trip!
