    Casting for Eastern Basin Walleyes

    Used to do it a lot back in the eighties. Erie Dearies worked great. Drifting was the norm back then. Trolling was just starting to take off in this area back then.

    Thanks for the report.
  5. Thanks for the report.
  6. The walleye don't know but old time fishermen know. Jimski is spot on with this. It's just an old time fishing belief. I can tell you that is pretty reliable. Modern electronics have taken a lot of the guess work out of it.
  7. Gobbler.. I don't buy bait . Go to a creek like Cayuga and lift the shale rocks. Crabs are underneath and you can pickem up. I'm old school self sufficient. Picking worms and catching crabs....

    I wasn't doubting you but it's a forum thing, no pics or it didn't happen. Didn't me to bust your b**ls. Nice catch.

  10. The south gap by the lighthouse or Seneca shoal are both good starting points. You can't go wrong with a three way swivel, eight inches of line to a sinker, twelve to eighteen inches of line to a #6 hook, and a good supply of crabs. You'll tear'em up. Good luck.
  11. They were shocking up muskies for their acoustic telemetry program Check out this website for more info: https://glatos.glos.us/ They have gathered a lot of info fro the walleye they have implanted. If you'd like to learn more about the program check out this event. Will be very informative: DEC Announces Angler Outreach Event on Wednesday, June 20 Biologists to Provide Update on Status of Lake Erie and Niagara River Fisheries New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) today announced a meeting to update the public about the status of the Lake Erie and Upper Niagara River Fisheries on June 20, 2018. "This annual event provides an excellent opportunity for anglers to interact with the biologists who study and manage Lake Erie and Niagara River fisheries," said DEC Regional Director Abby Snyder. "Among this year's updates biologists will share exciting new findings from studies exploring movement patterns of walleye, lake trout, and lake sturgeon." The meeting will take place at Woodlawn Beach State Park's Lodge on Wednesday, June 20, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m., and will begin with an informal discussion and poster exhibits. The meeting will be followed by a series of presentations on Lake Erie and the Upper Niagara River fisheries topics, including an opportunity for angler input on a variety fisheries management activities. The meeting will conclude with questions and an open discussion. Key members of Lake Erie and Niagara River's fisheries management and research community will present on Lake Erie fisheries research, management and assessment activities. This seminar is sponsored by DEC's Lake Erie Fisheries Unit and Region 9 Fisheries offices. Anyone interested is welcome to attend this free event and registration is not required. The Lake Erie and the upper Niagara River rank among New York State's top fishing destinations, especially for walleye, smallmouth bass, and steelhead. The 2007 statewide angler survey estimated more than 800,000 angler days spent on these waters and the estimated value of these fisheries exceeded $22 million to the local New York economy. For further information contact Don Einhouse, Lake Erie Unit Leader, (716) 366-0228.
  12. The DEC has the lake broken down into grids. When doing their creel surveys they ask which area of the lake you were fishing. The windmill grid is the area around the windmills. Each grid is approximately ten square miles.
  13. Thanks for the report. You did better than most today fishing out of the Buffalo area.
  14. Fished the windmill grid 9am - 2pm. 1 walleye and 1 coho.. Walleye was caught on a clown x-rap, coho on a Michigan Stinger blue bubble spoon. Did not mark much. Fished 38 feet to 45 feet. Three buddies each in their own boat caught one walleye each and reported the same, not marking much. All are very experienced at catching walleye. East wind I'm sure had much to do with the fish moving. They'll be back and will be willing to bite. Remember, the daytime bite just started. Water temp at 30 feet was 58-60 degrees.
