  1. 40 degree water is part of the "turnover" when the surface and bottom water are almost even. There is almost no difference in temperatures from top to bottom.
  2. As the seasons go by Lake Erie’s water temperature changes the fish are close to the Buffalo Harbor and around of July they begin travel past Sturgeon Point areas to west of the Cattaraugus Creek . By September with cooler nights they return to the Buffalo areas. I base this on over sixty years experience fishing on the lake, both hook and line and gill net operation. Operating a head boat out of Buffalo will not be successful after July 1st. By then the Cattaraugus Creek area is more productive. By late August the fish will return to the Buffalo areas. The success of a head boat operation financially is operating in other areas. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  3. The released perch are not wasted. If the gulls eat them or they sink to the bottom they become forage for the bottom life that consume them. The main considerations are controlled harvest to prevent starvation of the biomass presence in the lake. Stunting down of perch growth and survival is having a balanced harvest. You can only feed a few cows in a pasture till they must be moved. The same management is necessary for fish in the lake. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  4. The angling catch of yellow perch is less than 25% of the total catch between commercial and angling efforts. Yellow Perch numbers should be under controls as they are a predator of all reproduction of fish in Lake Erie. The fifty perch daily limit is angler processing of the perch catch is estimated. We still need more perch harvested and cutting the limit should be a personal determination. Just take only what you can clean and process when you get home. There are too many laws on the books in New York State that are a knee jerk reaction to a perceived and unstudied issues. I fished the Wiscoy Creek April 1st and counted three automobiles while the East Koy Creek had hundreds of vehicles. The Wiscoy is managed for natural reproduction while the East Koy is stocked with hatchery fish. Now things here will not change, a small user group had their way and now it will not change.
  5. For more information google up “ perch gill netting “. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  6. The Lake is twenty inches higher than last year and predicted to rise higher. Smokes Creek in Lackawanna is navigable up to South Park Avenue.High winds gusting to sixty MPH are coming.
  7. The ice here could be similar since the Lake Erie ice field has been compacted by heavy southwest winds also. Our Niagara River flow may be cold for a longer time now. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  8. The Canadian Coast Guard Arctic ice breaker Pierre Raddison has been three foot thick ice in the Georgian Bay of Lake Huron. Brought here as the USA and Canadian ice breakers were stymied by the ice here. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  9. Fished the East Koy this morning. 21 degrees but we landed 3 man 3 trout 15 to 16 inch browns in one hour! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  10. Down in the southern tier now, most streams are low and clear. These are mid summer conditions I have never seen it my lifetime for opening day. Some rain is forecast but the fields are clear of melting snow Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United Mobile App

  12. Yesterday off Catawba some boats came in with 20 and 30 walleyes by noon. Trolling bandits 10 to 15 foot deep in 38 To 43 degree water temperatures, Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  13. When the surface water temperatures reach the seventy degree level, the walleyes migrate to off shore deeper waters. Erie has good colder depths offshore there . 65 foot depths are a good place to start then. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  14. Google up “hair jigs for walleye “ the in fisherman story their telling you how to do it. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  15. Google up Ohio Game FishingClick on Lake Erie Fishing, then log yourself in. Lots of information on now with snap jigging for big females and hair Jig fishing coming on soon. Walleye season is not closed there, but the limit is smaller. Realize that part of Lake Erie is south of our Pennsylvania border and the creeks, streams and rivers are warmer than here in New York so the bite turns on earlier and the ice is gone while here in New York we have to deal with wind blown ice fields for a month or two yet.

  21. Tohatsu makes almost all the 10 hp motors . From Mercury to any other make, Tohatsu is the manufacturer. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  22. Lake Ontario is reported to receive 35 foot waves on the eastern end today. With all the ice on the water shore properties will be messed up. Lake Erie is is in with similar conditions but greater amounts of ice. Boats stored in marinas will be endangered. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  23. A law existed for an easement by prescription. If you use someone’s property for your purpose and it is sold you may continue to use the property “. Also Lake Erie has never been sold to anyone including the state. Only the native tribes still own the lakes. A sign posting a property must have a name and address on it. The janitor must not want fishermen using the bathrooms. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  24. The manger of the State Park said the ice in the Harbor is open to ice fishing. He did not authorize the “fake signs “ that were posted. Fishermen harassment charges may be placed against the janitor that started all the trouble. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  25. If the docks are too dangerous then how are they safe for boaters especially with all the shenanigans that happen there? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United Mobile App
