On June 9th the wind on Lake Saint Clair was forecast to be mild and from the North. The Clinton River Cutoff and Boat launch Bay would be protected. I found Large Mouth Bass mostly around 14 inches. I got 3, one was 17 inches on 3/0 White Marabou Bangers, 2 bass on a 4/0 Chartreuse Banger.
I thought that the several missed hits on the white VS good hooking ratios on the big Chartereuse 4/0 Musky Banger would mean a small Chartreuse Marabou Banger would be good but I got no hits on that. On a flashy 4/0 White Bullet Dog I got 5 bass. I was fishing the erratic darting streamlined fly as a surface popper with short sharp rips and about a 1 second pause waiting for it to bob back to the surface.
The wind strengthened and changed, blowing in big waves from the south across Lake Saint Clair. I sought shelter and better fishing conditions up the Clinton Cutoff Channel. I have never found bass there and found none today. Along the shoreline weed edge I saw Carp and Gar lurking. Switching to a small 2 inch flashy diver made like the Marabou Banger except the front face is cut at an angle so it dives. I got 4 gar to hit it before I drifted past the bit of shore line where they were concentrated. I could have caught a bunch on a Rope Fly Foam Diver.
