Come fish Lake St. Clair

Contact: 1-586-531-2821

2024 season is going to be one of great gratitude to be on our beautiful Michigan waterways! This will be my 34rd season guiding full time. I still get excited every year to catch our Great Lakes Smallmouth Bass!!

My name is Art Ferguson, I really hope to share the boat with you this year on Lake St. Clair, Detroit River, Lake Erie and now options of fishing in Northern Michigan on some amazing lakes.

While fishing with me, it’s about memories and catching fish! I want to make our day(s) as comfortable as I can while whacking on some monster smallies! (and largemouth).
Please contact me to book a trip soon! Let’s make this  the best season ever…..
God bless,
Captain Art Ferguson
