  1. Fished the Catt yesterday on Saturday from 7- 12, I agree with ciscokid, fished 74 ft - 80 ft, picked up 9 and last a few others, fish were picky, a flurry of hits and then shut down for a while, dipseys out 170 - 180, riggers a 53 and 56 (picked ip most of our fish on harnesses) and a 10 core which picked up 2. trolling speed was 1.8- 2.2. Fishing at or just above the thermocline seemed best. Also picked up 3 healthy silver bass., walleye caught were healthy and appeared to be eating well.
  2. thanks for the encouraging report, haven't been out in about month or so, looking to get after some walleye on Sunday.
  3. fished out of Buffalo this morning from 6:30- 11:30 in 58- 60 foot of water, ended up with 6, 5 on the downrigger at 53' and 1 on 7 color lead core, 1 on sticks and 5 on harnesses, silver back seem to work better than copper. Marked what seemed to be a lot of bait and fish higher up in the water column, when we marked fish in the 50- 56 foot range they were walleye. Still seems pretty slow for this time of year.
  4. First time out this morning, (not in the STWT), trolled for 6 hours and only managed 1 walleye, 1 bass and 1 sheephead. worked hard and threw the kitchen sink at them. Trolled in front of the windmills, out to the condo's and to meyers reef. For all the suposed great spawning thats been happening the last few years, where are all the walleye?
  5. Perfect, thanks Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  6. Thinking about heading out on Sunday, just wondering if it’s still worth the effort to go out for walleye if they are still out there? Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  7. Thinking of heading out of Dunkirk in the morning if the winds are down. Any suggestion as to where to start and what bait is working best? Thanks will post a report at some point tomorrow.
  8. fished out of Dunkirk this morning with my daughter (first time out with me in her 20 years of her existence) and her boyfriend. We ended up with 10, letting my daughter reel in most of the fish and try her hand at netting. She lost 5, knocked one of mine at the boat and her boyfriend lost 2, plus missed a few hits. But landed a bonus 12 lb lake trout. Should have limited out, but time spent with my daughter was priceless. She had a great time and hopefully she has the itch. Anyways, our best depth was 97'- 103', we used a10 core, riggers at 56 and 58, and dipseys at 165- 170. Fished all sticks, bombers, scatter rap and smithwick rougue 10's.
  9. second that, thanks for the report, heading out in the AM, i will report when I get home
  10. Heading out tomorrow in the AM, and info would be great. Thanks for the report Milt

  12. Fished this morning for 5 hours, launched off Hamburg beach and ran out to 58 - 62 foot of water where you can see the condos. Ended up boating 8 All between 18 - 24 inches, 2 can off riggers at 55/ 56 with purple/ silver and watermelon harnesses, the other 6 came off dipseys (out 130 - 135) and lead core (5color) on bombers in perch color and black/ orange.

  13. Was out this morning, SLOWWWWWW!! only 3 fish, one weighed just over 9 lbs (no we are not in the tournament), nothing on sticks, fish came on different color harnesses and 1 big 5 lb sheepshead. Not sure where all the walleye are?
  14. Got out for the first time yesterday behind the windmills, fished 32- 39 feet of water, manager to get 6 and 1 throwback. We had to work for them. All fish came on harnesses, nothing on sticks or spoons.
  15. We will give that a shot, thanks Fishy and good luck to this year.
  16. planning on heading out early, do you use sticks or harnesses? trolling or bottom bounce? Thanks
  17. planning to go out during the day, thanks
  18. Heading out of SBH this weekend for the first time this year and dragging a newbie along with me. I'll take any information or suggestions you can provide, thanks.
  19. Thanks to all that responded, I guess I'll have to spend some of my stimulus check.
  20. Thank you for the suggestions, can not seem to narrow it down to one color. What color Bay Rats work for, I do not have and would like to buy a few. Thanks Tony
  21. Started getting ready for the walleye season, and would like to get everyone's opinion on what brands and colors work for you. I fish anywhere from Buffalo down to Dunkirk. Thanks
  22. Was out yesterday, best screen was in 50 -55 " , not one color worked better than any others, but grren wih some yellow caught the bigger fish. We launched at six, ended at 11:30 with a 3 man limit, we caught fish on riggers, leadcore and dipseys.
  23. We don't like them either, just trying to find a way to make them track better, if thats possible.
  24. thanks Youngblood, I appreciate your feedback
  25. yes, I am talking about my otter boards, they just do not seen to track right through the water. Do I need to re- drill any holes and re- tie?
