  1. Mercury Verado engines are reported to be at the end of their production life. Four strokes are the future. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United
  2. Last year the Canadian Frost Derby out of Crystal Beach produced a possible state record bass in November. The entry was eliminated due to the lack of a non resident fishing license. November has the largest well fed bass after the summer that are developing their spawn eggs. Now is the time to try for the state record bass.
  3. Driving past the Safe Harbor Marina, I noticed small boats launching at the old boat ramp near the restaurant area.
  4. While the launch ramp docks are gone, with hip boots or waders you can launch and retrieve your boat. We launched boats at Woodlawn Beach for years that way. After the water warmed up, you did not need boots. A set it oars helped getting the boat off shore also. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United
  5. Perch were taken off Vermillion in 32 foot of water. They are moving inshore now the water temperature ha s fallen.
  6. Starweld.com and see the video on the Pro 20. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United
  7. Lund and Crestliner are built by the same factory. Starcraft now makes a nice boat that is welded. Called a Starweld. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United
  8. There is an outboard bracket with an electric steering control on it. It is controlled by a remote control that you have on your belt and it allows you to attend your lines in the stern. Great when you fish alone. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United
  9. Limit catches from the Catt have been reported. The problem now is bait availability. We may have to convert our fishing to artificials. I hate having to associate with those “artificials only” people that are so delicate to keep their hands clean. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United
  10. The Lake surface water temperature has dropped and fish are returning to the Eastern waters. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United
  11. No attendants on the site. Just the docks and parking lot open. Hidden Harbor had its docks in also. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United
  12. Years ago the Health Department warned of Lake Ontario fish consumption. This led to a loss of food fishing opportunities on Lake Ontario. Decades have passed now and there have been no updates from that agency and generations of new anglers have been lost. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United
  13. Unharvested perch have a high impact on walleye, bass and other fish as they feed on fry and fingerlings of the walleye and bass. They also impact the emerald shiners, gobies, mussels and fleas. It is a failure of the anglers who ignore the need to balance the harvest of perch. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United
  14. Lake Erie has a higher fertilization level from all the agriculture activity, higher human population contributing more nutrients. Average shallower depth contributes a greater production area for perch. It is the greatest food fish producing Lake in the world. The perch numbers are controlled by generous sport fishing quotas and a quota limit on commercial fishing operations with international cooperation by the concerned agencies. Still there are boom and bust harvest years that we end up having to live with. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United
  15. The problem begins with a wind shift and your hooks foul the neighbors anchor line. Even if you break off your line, the guy pulling the anchor will find hooks in fingers, and then the action begins. Stay far away from the other guys anchor line so the war does not start.
