Heading out for my third venture to St. Clair. Both trips have been to Belle River...first trip memorable, 2nd trip not so much. I'd like to try some new water, and was thinking the dumping grounds. Is it realistic to troll from Belle River to the dumping grounds or would I be wasting my time? Is the dumping grounds area big enough that you could spend a whole day fishing it or is it more of a spend a half hour to an hour spot. Finally, if its worth a whole day all on its own is there a launch out that way or still best to launch at Belle River and then bomb over. Thanks for any input.

You can launch from the puce river but I would got to belle river and troll over to the dumping ground. Follow the contour lines over that way they run 16' range and there are alot of big fish out in front of puce right now.

I have only ever trolled the dumps but do want to get out casting. If you catch one fish there stay in the area there will be more.

Thanks Mike. The first fish we got on trip one was absolutely in the middle of nowhere, so I figured it would be worth a troll over, fish it a bit, and then troll back.

 

dumping grounds is where they used to dump whatever they dredged up when they made the shipping channel.

the dumps is between pike cr.- puce. I would fish puce 14-16ft. the dumps are shallower no oxegeon. I have fished that area for years.. in front of puce just east is the red barn. straight out from there. best times daylight and nite time. run your baits hi at 4mph.

thanks outlaw. I had been hearing about this barn, figured I would find it when I went trolling west from belle river. Because I am quite far away, I likely won't hit the water until close to 9 am, and won't be around for night, but that's the nice thing about muskies...you can get them even in the non prime times! Here's hoping a few are interested during business hours.

oh ya Brian. I see a LOT of bass out there when I'm casting. Even caught an aggressive smallie last time out, about a 3 pounder. Normally thats a nice fish to catch, but he couldn't match up to my 80lb line! Had him surfing across the top.
