  1. Stillwater

    Sturgeon Point 2018

    Fished Thursday (8/2) west of SP in 69 to 74 fow. Drifted with hand rod bottom bouncers to start until wind slowed. Picked up 2 on bouncers with harnesses. Then switched over to dipseys. Only 2 rods and picked up 6 more trolling back east toward SP. All on harnesses. Ran one stick for a while and it never got touched. Fun night on the water and nice sunset. All fish between 15.5 inches and 18.5 inches. Caught them down deep setting #3 with 185 to 195 ft of line out. Did see marks in the water column and plenty of bait as well. One of the eyes was regurgitating nice size slender minnows (smelt?).

    We're you marking fish and putting it in their zone? Did you change bait and speed?

    Beautiful fish Great Escape! Thanks for sharing.
  4. What is a vibie? Is it a Sonar or Blade bait with a rattle in it? Thanks. Do you use any bucktail hair jigs. I use them on Oneida and St. Lawrence River. They would probably work well on deeper Chaut. fish?
  5. Good tips Mr 580... you must know that lake like the back of your hand. Do you ever target deeper water during the day or mainly the weed edges like you described? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  6. Good luck on your next attempt. Thanks for the report. In some of the reading I have been doing on old fishing reports and from what I could actually see when I was on the water it looks like a lot of people come out to fish for eyes around 8 pm and set up in good places to jig for them. They fish well past sunset for them both jigging and trolling. I bet that the full moon looked great there last night. Should help the eye fishing.
  7. I fished Chautauqua Lake for the first time yesterday (Tuesday 6/26) with my daughter. We got there around 3 pm and launched out of Long Point State Park. Having read up a little from last years walleye reports and some of the fishing reports this year we started out drifting worm harnesses on light bottom bouncers in front of Prendergast Point at varying depths. South west wind wasn't bad. Caught a lot of small yellow perch and no eyes. Did see some better marks that I think were eyes. After a couple hours of this we decided to troll with sticks heading north to the bell tower. Covered plenty of good looking water but no takers. Another troller heading the opposite direction said he caught one. Turned around and trolled back to Prendergast area. No takers. Fished until dark and motored back toward Long Point. Stopped to troll in front of the State Park beach house and called it quits when we lost a Rapala on a snag. We enjoyed the lake and felt like it will be worth a return trip. About the same distance as heading to Oneida Lake for us.

    Guys, do you put anything on your jigs in October or go with bare hooks? Through the ice I like to use the head of an emerald shiner on jigging raps on Oneida and it works well. The Sting nose looks pretty good. I plan to give them a try (I already ordered some Got-chas). I am looking forward to trying these new jigs.

    How about jigging raps? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Erie United Mobile App

    Good suggestion Mostly Muskies. Bit of a drive but still doable even for a day trip. Not much farther than Oneida. Getting them jigging is a lot of fun.

    Wow that is a lot of water covered Fishnut. Thanks for the latest updates guys. Now I have to watch the weather and decide where to go. Options include: Erie, Oneida, or locally on I-Bay or Conesus. The Walleye is a great fish and this has been a fun learning season. One more trip then put away the boat. Grouse and Deer need some attention. Thanks to everyone for sharing your knowledge!

    Any of you experienced Lake Erie walleye fishermen think there would be enough eyes still worth chasing in the usual 65 to 75 fow range NW of Sturgeon next week. Really would like to have one more go at it depending on the weather. Not sure what the water temps are doing and how much that will change things. Next potential window looks like Wednesday of next week but a lot can change by then. Interested in hearing a few opinions. Thanks.

    Thanks Wallychaser... it was special. I could tell it was a good fish right away when she bit my harness. Had my medium/light action spinning rod bent right over and the drag going strong. When she finally came into view and I could see it was a walleye it really got exciting. She came off in the net! I have been dreaming about getting a solid walleye out of Erie and it finally came true!

    Fished with a friend NW of sturgeon point yesterday afternoon and evening. Started out drifting in 75 fow with harnesses. Caught a personal best walleye (29 incher, 7.8 lbs). Lake went flat so we finished with Dipsy divers. Ended with 8 keepers. Beautiful sunset. Great to be out. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Erie United Mobile App
