  1. Nice work Ten Percent. Just curious how you manage 20' leads off the dipsy's. 20' handle on your landing net?? Hand lining them? I would love to use a bit longer lead but am limited to 8' or so due to space constraints. Tight lines.... Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United
  2. Full freezers indeed. I almost feel like I know what I'm doing. Honestly if it weren't for this forum I would probably be struggling. Thanks everyone to the tips and reports. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United
  3. Nice work yellow. Boxed out with a 3 man limit by noon then goosed her up a bit for some steelies and blanked. Beautiful day though. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  4. Ten Percent, i am not sure how seasoned I am but this is my opinion none the less. I am not of the mindset that you need to spend a ton of money on trolling gear. Sure I have overspent on my favorite spinning, baitcasting or mooching setups, YES! Don't tell my wife. I have gotten by very nicely on Okuma Convectors. They are reasonably priced with some nice deals eBay or Amazon. I have put them through a lot and the just keep ticking. They are smooth with decent drags and the line counters on more than the dozen I have are still operational after 5-10 years of use(abuse). I use them for everything from leadcore, dispy, to braid for bottom bouncing. Sure I would like a while battery of Tekotas or better, I just don't see the need as a recreational angler. Perhaps my opinion would change if I was running a charter service. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United
  5. I hear you garrymny. Was out this Monday and marked what seemed liked thousands. Same today but I ran a little different program and smoked them. Got our limit in 1.5hrs. Alewife spoons with meat on dipsy 200 hundred back did 90% of the work for us. Couldn't keep the dipsy's in the water. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United
  6. Fished 9-1 today off the Catt. Marked hundreds of fish in 80 fow. Boated only 4, 17-19". Had a hell of time keeping crawlers on the harnesses as the perch kept slurping them. Plenty of boats around most of them seemed a little slow too. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United
  7. Fished 8-12 today off the Catt in 80-85. Marked a bunch and took ten nice eaters Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  8. I've been using Michigan Stingers and swapping out the treble for a couple snelled hooks with beads. They have a rainbow trout pattern that has been working well for me. Spoons have been slow for me until I started swapping and hanging meat. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United
  9. 70-80 fow off the Catt was hot today. Bottom bounced Watermelon harnesses and spoons off the dipseys got us a limit in about 2 hours. Biggest was 26". One dink and no sheephead. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United Mobile App

  13. Was out on Monday Seamaster from SP. Have been doing pretty well a mile to a mile and a half from the fence off evangola in 70-75fow. for the past couple weeks. Marked a bunch from 55-65fow. Pink rats have been doing the most work, however when it clouded up on Monday I switched silver and blue shallow divers on 10 color and they picked up a bit. I took 8 nice eaters on Monday. Probably could of done better if I ran some meat but didn't feel like dealing with the mess. I hear they are still down my well out of Dunkirk too. Hope this helps. Good Fishing!!
