Lake St Clair US Bass Opener 2018 Tournament Results

| June 21, 2018

Opening day bass fishing results fluctuate with seasonal temperatures. There is no way to know how they will be next year, but this year we took a stab at guessing what the best catch over last weekend would be:

As it turns out, we were able to find some results from events, plus had a couple of clubs check in. Thank you Michigan Bass Anglers and Michiana Casting Couples for giving us a look at what weights were available on Lake St. Clair on opening day.

First off, we have a report from Michigan Bass Anglers. Their event was on Sunday, launched at Harley at 6:00am, and went to 3:00pm. They were scheduled to launch 10 boats at their club event. Here is the report from the President, Paul Wagner:

“Our club winning weight was 18.98 pounds, , Chaz Poindexter and Bam Beydoun won it, Bam also had big fish with a 4.57 smallmouth.”

We got a terrific report from Michiana Casting Couples. They launched at the Clinton River Cutoff boat access and were projected to have 15 boats.
