  1. With warmer water, the daytime walleye bite has been pretty good along and in the weeds. Some pics from some recent trips.
  2. Eastern Lake Erie Charter Boat Association continues to attract new member Captains and Mates. We have close to 70 current paid members and membership information is available on our website. We have member Captains working New York waters of Lake Erie, upper/lower Niagara River, and western Lake Ontario. ELECBA offers required drug testing and the opportunity to promote our fishery. Contact any officer for additional information or attend one of our meetings!
  3. In the past when I’ve fished off Cleveland it was an open water bite and by mid July likely offshore. Think planer boards, divers approach would be more productive than jigging as the fish are relating more to bait than structure. You could fish NY water off Dunkirk or the Catt to try Erie fishing before heading west.
  4. Misdirection is right on. Big boards easier when you have different people on board. Bigger boats have room to store boards, mast, planer reels. For smaller boats with less storage, in lines are a better option. Both are very effective and what works for your crew and your boat is the best choice.
  5. Posting edited 2/28/21 to show Price with shipping to domestic US for both groups.

  10. I’ve run them inside of lead core no problem. Also set them on boards over slide divers no problem. Couple years ago I was running three short coppers on one side and ran into a school of junk fish- they wadded up all three lines- real big mess. To me, it works but lead core easier to deal with.
  11. Running 250 walleye blood run copper on Daiwa 57 LC - figure it gets down around 60 foot. Like how that fishes compared to some shorter coppers I have played with.
  12. More weight and farther back. In line boards to get lines away from boat. Longer leads and wider spreads on Lake Erie. 5 color lead pretty versatile and your 2 oz weights on that would probably get you down to the fish that a 10 is taking. Dipseys deadly on deep eyes too.
  13. Lots of ways to handle leader to dipsy and it is more about personal preference rather than right or wrong. Using two snaps or a snap swivel with a snap both work. Direct tie OK too.Use fluorocarbon leader. Most of the time you can run same length for plugs and spoons. Crawler harness on a long lead might require short leader. I keep my leaders on a Amish Outfitters leader roll. If you are spinning up leaders might be from deploying dipsy too fast or a unnoticed trash fish spinning it up.
  14. Go to Trollmaster website and you can download the TM208 manual which should be for Evinrude, Johnson,Suzuki installation. I have a Trollmaster 2 on a Yamaha was a pretty simply installation and it has worked well for years only had to replace one part.
  15. Slide Diver standard weight is 4 oz. They offer a heavy weight kit which is a 7 oz weight and a big ring. I’ve never fished deeper diver but likely the deeper diver would compare closer to a SD with heavy weight kit. IMO the slide diver dive curve is slightly less than a LJ dipsey which I’ve fished a lot. I just run more line with SD and compensate that way. To me printed dive curves are a starting point and I let the fish and my rods tell me the numbers I need to run.
