  1. I have heard of guys doing this before for walleye. Usually with a little longer leader. Works great until you get a steelhead full of piss and vinegar on. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  2. I've always been taught that both can be eyes. Long ribbon means they are relatively still compared to the transucer, the hook or arch means they were moving, but at the same depth. And upward or downward line slope they were coming up or diving. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  3. Here is my theory. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  4. Glad you had a good trip! Now you'll be more prepared for your next trip! Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  5. There is a website listed above. www.reelcoollures.com Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  6. I see a thermocline setup around 42' to 45' with baitfish right above it and the feeding fish hanging out right below it. I'd be targeting about 40' with cranks or spoons and trolling fast (2.5+ knots). Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  7. Ohio cut the perch limit to 10 in MU 2 (managent unit #2 in Ohio). Thats Huron to Fairport Harbor. They should have extended it to the PA line as our perch fishing is dreadful out here in MU 3. I hope whatever is affecting our perch numbers out here doesn't extend to your end of the lake. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  8. Right now, its a walleye slaughter out there. I'm a little east of Cleveland in Ashtabula, and its been quick limits of impressive walleye. This past Saturday it almost took longer to run out to the fish than catch em. We put 24 nice (24" - 28") fish in the box in about 2 hours. Make sure your rods are calibrated, you have large dipsys on hand and a tray full of spoons. Don't be afraid to troll fast (2.5 knots +). Seven colors of leadcore or 300' of single strand wire are doing well. Deep diving cranks with weights if you don't have lead or wire. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  9. #2 Duolock snap. When you clip the crank on, make sure the clip on the duolock is away from the lip of the crank. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  10. Because of the orientation of Erie being angled to the NE/SW, if we were fishing the 02 in Ashtabula, you can fish the 00 in Geneva and 04 in Conneaut. Thats a general rule of thumb. Its all about finding the right currents, temp, and baitfish. But in Conneaut, you find the humps and trenches that are more pronounced inside Pennsylvania can offer different opportunities.

  11. The 02 line is 8 miles out of Ashtabula and I would guess 4 to 5 miles out of Conneaut. Out of Ashtabula we fished inside the 02 until almost August when the lake really started to warm up. Then we had to venture out into the lake. The best way to locate walleye in the summer on our part of the lake is to look at the bottom temps. Once you find the colder water, you've found the walleye. See attached pic, that was from late August. Once the lake warms up, you gotta run out to where the (yellow) colder water is, at least for those of us who fish eastern OH waters. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  12. Small spoons off dipsys have been working well too. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  13. Right now their are walleye in shallow, 50' or less. Been catching them up high, flatlining Rapala Husky Jerks from 75' to 150' out off the boards. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  14. In early May, I would head west of Cleveland, like Lorraine, OH. We have a resident population of walleye in Ashtabula, but if your dad wants a big girl, he'll need one that spawned out on the western reefs and then took off east as the water warmed. Those fish ususlly dont make it to my part of the lake until late June, early July. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
  15. I fish out of Ashtabula OH on Erie for walleye. If your after a 10 lbs + walleye, run larger lures. We've been running the Michigan stinger magnum spoons off of true trips and the old Bombers #17's (their about 8" long) off wire or leadcore. The bigger lures trolled at summer speeds (2.5 knots and above) do extremely well. Sent from my SM-A505U using Tapatalk
