    Walleyes, Steelhead, and Lake Trout...... all on a 9 color lead core with a bomber shallow stick. We did manage a 2 person limit of walleyes today with 3 steelhead and a 14 lb laker. Great weather and fishing, but today it was important to stay above the cold water.
  2. The volume of the Huron river is pretty small when compared to the Detroit or Maumee. So if the contaminants are associated with just that river basin, the effects are probably negligible. If the contaminants are more widespread, then it's a valid concern depending on the concentrations. More to come..............

    Grilled Walleye Marinade

    Hey Cisco............ T = tablespoon t = teaspoon and I'm sure there are plenty of good adders/experiments out there to try......... basil? oregano?

    Grilled Walleye Marinade

    My favorite is 3 T Olive Oil 2 T Soy Sauce 3 T Brown Mustard 2 minced garlic cloves black pepper to taste Whisk all together, and reserve some for drizzling over the cooked fish..... Marinate the fish in the mixture for at least 3 hours then grill turning 1x. Great for Walleye or Salmon.

    12 fish out of the Catt today in 80 FOW +. Literally everything took fish ..... sticks off a 7 and 9 colors, spoons off divers, and harnesses off the riggers....... very nice day and great fishing. one 26" fish, and the rest were the the '13 and '14 year class fish........

    After 12 walleyes today, we looked for perch out of the Catt, and didn't find any....... perhaps I was looking too shallow, as we didn't venture deeper than 59 fow. for kicks, I dropped the probe and found 63 F water on the bottom in 59. There was a 6 degree break down 50, and fish were piled up on that break........ sheepies...... lots of them but not a single perch.

    Casting for Eastern Basin Walleyes

    That's encouraging. I think it works well in the Western Basin because fish density can be so high. With the large numbers of fish in our end right now it might be another successful tactic.
  10. I'm wondering if anyone ever tries drifting / casting weight forward spinners or mayfly rigs for walleye in NY water?........ seems with so many fish around, it might be a fun experiment. Anybody ever try it? It used to be the popular method in the Western basin, but I've never seen it done here............

    Sturgeon Point 2018

    that is NOT an atlantic. We took a 2 man limit of walleye out of SP yesterday. 5 and 7 color cores off the boards, and riggers did most of the damage....... 50 - 65 fow. Depth didn't seem to matter much. We also took a steelhead on a spoon behind a wire diver.......Mostly harnesses, and sticks. very nice day.

    Sturgeon Point 2018

    We put in a pretty long day yesterday to box 11 fish out of sp. good fishing, but not great. 5 and 7 color cores with stickbaits worked early, and once the S wind died it got tougher and the bite was pretty much all harnesses. mostly cores and riggers..... 55 to 65 fow.

    The Catt.

    Beautiful! The tail looks sort of like a "fantail"........... or am I imagining that? Dorsal and Anal fins have that look too.......
