Vertical Jigging in the D! Come experience the best Walleye fishing in the country.

Mr. Muskie Charters operates our Walleye trips on the Detroit & St. Clair Rivers, which are the main tributaries of Lake St. Clair. The rivers are the life blood and throughway for all the fish to travel between the great lakes.

The Detroit River holds more Walleye in the spring than any other place in the country. Over 6 million Walleye enter the system as they make their way up the Detroit river for their spring spawning.

We operate on the Detroit River from Sindbad’s Marina and restaurant, which is in the heart of the best fishing grounds, located just outside of downtown Detroit.

We target the Walleye as they travel the Detroit River by vertical jigging out of our smaller boats. We will help to teach or refine your skills to make it a successful trip.

When we return from our charter, we will clean your catch so that you can take them home or enjoy a fresh lunch or dinner at Sindbad’s restaurant inside the marina. They do the best job in the catch and cook program!
