  1. Steelhead

    I fish for them on lake Ontario. In Erie, for walleyes in July and August, I saw the temp was 72 degrees from 0 to 80 or 90 feet. So my guess is for steelhead, you will have find the deepest spot in lake Erie to find cold water. Sent from my XT1030 using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  2. is that still US waters? Thanks.
  3. Walleye rigger releases

    tried my new chamberlains today and they worked pretty good. Glad I bought them. Had 3 or 4 actually trip the release today! And I was able to get most the blowback cranked out. Well worth $20 each.
  4. Thanks for trying Sturgeon Point and giving us the report. It is crazy busy off the CATT.
  5. 9/24. Well I guess the curse is off the new boat! Went out of the Catt today and had a better day than yesterday, which I didn't think would be possible. Started late, got there about 730, and by noon we had landed about 23 walleyes. Most ran small today, but were all legal, and out biggest was a 27 inch 6 pounder. Same program as yesterday, harnesses off dipsy divers (the steel chinook divers do not seem to work near as well). Also took some on the spoons, off the riggers, but fluttering off riggers was not as effective today. Also took some off riggers using a lure called a mag lip. Speed was 1.5 to 1.9 mostly on the fish hawk. Big walleye was caught by having the dipsy diver plowing on the bottom!
  6. Off the Catt Sat 9/23. Had a great day today (finally). Got 19 walleyes and a few silver bass. We struggled our first two times out, but many thanks to all those who gave me advice and tips, it helped. Going out again tomorrow to try some more. The fluttering technique worked pretty well, with a spoon, and the rest came off dives back 230. No actual hits on the downriggers at all. I thought that was strange.

  8. Walleye rigger releases

    Just ordered Chamberlain's can't wait to try them. Been using black for Salmon, but with walleye I like way the Chamberlain is designed. Only $20 each. Sent from my XT1030 using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  9. Hi all, it seems that the Walleye right now, Sept 22, are on the bottom, and I wonder if I should put an egg sinker ahead of the worm harness, to make sure it is running on the bottom behind the downrigger ball, or dipsey. It seems that the harness may have a tendency to go upward and thus be out of the strike zone even though the ball/diver is close to the bottom. Thanks. Garry.

  10. Thanks for the info on speeds guys, I am incorpating everything you all have said, for Saturday. Went to lighter leaders, 15 lb floro, and shortened the downrigger cable below the ball, etc. I'll keep the speed 1. 6 to 1.9 on the fish hawk, and I'm thinking that will be the GPS speed of 1.9 to 2.1. thanks again, and yes this is a great site, with some really good folks on here.

  11. can someone share with me the speeds that are working for you? I also am having difficulty because we are fishing stick baits, harnesses, and spoons. Seems no speed is right for all of them, and so as I vary speed some are not working at all as far as action. Just ordered an itroll, so I will try the hunt mode and see if that helps, when it finally gets here.
  12. Ok, should I look for ( and fish in ) a patch of relatively colder, or warmer, water?
  13. Ok, done, I shortened the distance between ball and release to about 1 foot. Thanks/
  14. jimski2, what speed should I be running when using a worm harness? Thank You, Garry.
