A Beautiful Side Of Detroit, You May Have Never Seen
The "Motor City" has and continues to get a bad rap for many years. The beautiful houses, abandoned since the riots of the 1960's. But one thing that brings people of all walks together is the river. The Detroit River is a mecca for spring anglers because of the walleye run. Millions of walleye travelling to their spawning grounds in Lake Erie during the first few weeks of April. Boats huddled together, vertical jigging in hopes of getting a few for the frying pan. Others lining the available shores, running a tight line to the bottom, hoping for the same.
While fishing, it's not uncommon to be passed by on oncoming ship in the channel. The 1,000 foot behemoths, chug by silently as they make their way past hundreds of fishing boats in search of "Michigan gold."
