    Also I doubt there is any natural reproduction of salmon on Erie. Tributaries are two warm. That’s a stocked fish from somewhere on Erie. A few years ago guys caught all sorts of pink salmon out of Erie pa. I personally have a hard time believing they swam all the way from Huron or that king navigated the lock system. It’s like the Fishers in WNY. Just started showing up. I have a hard time believing they traveled from the Adirondack or the pa mountains to make a family in Forestville Ny. Just my opinion

    Positive it’s a king. I got in an argument with a DEC person whom kept telling me that I had a lake trout but it was a 14lb Erie brown about two years ago. Problem is looking in a book gives you different perspective then how they look in Lake Erie. The mouth is black and it’s a king.

    Caught a coho two years ago. Very few salmon not stocked not even sure were they come from.

    Yep no coho. That’s a king.
  5. Yea man if you fish with folks whom appreciate the process it’s more fulfilling
  6. Plan needed to be 5lbs more effective lol. Cool thing is I’m sure we had the most diversity as of age (possibly cultural also). My son is 9 and fish with my grandpa friend whom is 83. They both participate and get not special treatment. The kid bleeds the Walleye we eat and the Walleye get the best of him sometimes. That’s what happens when the Walleye fight back. It’s walleye blood not his.
  7. Never mentioned we fished out of Dunkirk NY.
  8. Fished most off the week, Thursday morning had a decent bite out front. Fished 4,5,6 colors with Sticks little west of harbor. Nothing special probably a dozen fish with two over 5lbs. Friday came big fish Friday and no big fish for us to be found we covered huge amounts of water. Fished all depths and even caught eyes down deep in 45 degree water well below thermo which was at forty feet. So after boating close to 35 eyes all under 5lbs we had no plan. After beers we decided we were going to make a long run west and fish an area we are accustomed to. Friday night the wind blew 25 knots out of north east. Once we got to our spot the thermo has moved up to 32 feet. We planned on running some deep leads but quickly came out the two and three colors. At mid morning thinking about running seven color goesoff only deep rod we have goes with a 9.8 lber. 10 minutes later bam... 7lber and 8lber double on two and three color. Understanding how fishing has been I thought we needed two over 5lbs to win. Through the day we grinded and got two more good fish which we got. Last fish was a skinny 28” 6.4 lber. I thought this fish sealed the deal. We were overly confident. Big fish have been hard and I think we did 40 fish easy to get 7 over five lbs. wiegh in came along and winner wieghed in 42 lbs. we came in fourth with roughly 37.5 lbs and second big fish. The disappointment was horrible for my crew and I. Turns out the bigger fish turned on throughout the lake. I honestly thought 34 lbs would win it. Well maybe our luck will change in the sunset shootout. Ron

    Wind direction

    Yep they bite just need to fish different. Grandpa didn’t fish in east winds but we do!!! Challenge of figuring it out is what makes it fun.

    I think worms are a go to bait because they are extremely speed tolerant. People have the down current and wave direction mixed up in a sense. I have found after a west blow which is most of the summer you’ll find trolling into the waves to West the down current is coming from the east especially on the east end. I became a better Walleye fishermen trying to learn how to catch Lake Ontario Salmon and Browns. Water temp and speed up there rule when it comes to salmon. Browns in semi clear water require a stealth approach that is unmatched. Applying that to eye fishing on Erie has increased our catch.

    We don’t use many worms but I can tell you fishing is going to be good. Water temp was 60 on top out of Dunkirk Sunday and 53 degree down 50 over 60 ft. Fish all spread throughout the water column and it’s been good. The days of waiting for the water to warm are over. Educated Walleye anglers can catch day time eyes all along the west and central and eastern basin. It’s a stigma that has been created that is completely absolutely false on the eastern end. Spread out a segmented core presentation with some good baits and start catching. One tip buy good flouro carbon not to heavy and small swivels. I don’t know how many times I have talked to Walleye guys coming in and the have a huge swivel attached to 25 lb test leader then there bait. Reduces there catch drastically
  12. Funny story so I bought a new to me boat located in Oswego plan was to drive boat from Oswego to olcott. So we drop truck off in olcott buddy drives me and dad to boat in Oswego. We end up not leaving harbor till to 2 pm. So we finally get going all excited for the ride and a mile into our 110 mile trip there is a broke down boat. Out of all the times a little annoyed not at the broke down boaters but of the circumstances. I was like dad if we don’t tow them in we will be broke down somewhere around Rochester. We towed them back to Oswego river were a smaller boat helped bring them into dock. Made it to Olcott by dark and all was fine only issue with new to me boat needed one impeller. Every switch, pump and accessory works. Bought it seen on site so that I believe was are Karma. 95 percent of people help others in need. Teach your kids to do the same only way to eliminate these issues of inconsiderance. I must have a selfish side because if I see someone in need a few days before a tourney. I’ll drive you over trying to help someone just for the extra karma.
