  1. Wind turbines face fierce opposition on land as well. The landowners may be willing to accept them, but their neighbors put up a huge fight. It might be easier for the wind turbine companies to fight the opposition to water based turbines than land based turbines. I can’t think of a single land based wind turbine project that didn’t have to deal with protesting neighbors. Serious question.... have the Lackawanna wind turbines had a noticeable environmental effect or effect on fishing? I don’t fish that area and have no idea. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United
  2. I use the Windy app as well and find it fairly reliable for wind speed and timing. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United
  3. Thanks for all of the info mr 580. You did give me a starting point that gave me some confidence. Our trip ended this morning. I never did find walleye, but I suspect I didn't spend enough time in tight to the dense weeds. I did lose two fish that felt heavy enough to be walleyes. Mostly I had small perch stealing my bait. And I caught a couple bass as well. I do have a depth finder on my kayak so I was able to monitor weeds and depth. I did occassionally mark fish that I suspect were walleyes. This was my first time fishing the lake in many years. I used to fish Chautauqua frequently with my dad as a kid, but that was a long time ago. And I was fishing from a kayak so my travel distance was a bit limited. First season on the yak, and first time with it in bigger water. I didn't want to stray too far from home base, and crossing the lake was...... intimidating, especially with a near holiday boat crowd. I worked about a 1/2 mile stretch in front of our cottage, across the lake from Long Point. That area seemed to be worked mostly by musky anglers so I may not have been in the most productive waters too. We're likely going back in the Fall. I'll give it another shot.
  4. One of the difficulties I’ve had here is positively identifying the weedline. On my depth finder it appears to me that there isn’t a sudden change from weeds to no weeds. More of a tapering off as the depth increases from about 14-18 ft. I’ve been concentrating on the deeper end of that range to avoid the annoyance of frequently cleaning weeds from my line, but maybe I need to get right in there and expect to deal with weeds?

  5. Stillwater, I had similar results early this morning. Fished from dawn until about 8. Worked 14-18 ft of water in the Long Point area. Perch cooperated, walleye did not. Like you, I was also marking fish occasionally that didn’t seem interested. Tomorrow morning I’ll change things up a bit. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United
  6. Thanks for the report. I’ll be out in the AM to give it a go. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United
  7. Will be at Chautauqua Thursday through Monday. Staying at Pine Hill cottages across the lake from Long Point. I’m bringing along my fishing kayak. I’m hoping the get some advice for fishing in the immediate area. Walleyes would be nice but if preferred fishing areas aren’t in reasonable paddle distance, perch and panfish are OK. Any info that gets me started is greatly appreciated. Thanks. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  8. I noticed that as well. As the day wore on, you had to be active to get any fish interested. I was actively jigging my drop shot rig to get bites. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United
  9. We did OK out of Catt yesterday. But we were not clobbering them by any stretch. We moved around quite a few times. Picked up some jumbos right after sun up, but they disappeared after about an hour, then it was a slow pick at small pods of roaming fish after that. We would catch one or two and then the pod moved on and we’d have to wait for the next pod to move through. We culled about as many as we kept. The fish definitely ran on the smaller side after that first hour. We kept to inside of 60’. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United
  10. I think everyone is talking about the same guy/boat. Drama and entertainment on the high seas. LOL I was very surprised at how well everyone co-existed in those small, tight groups of boats. Well...... most everyone.
