  1. Fished with a friend yesterday from Sturgeon Point down toward Catt. Anywhere from 70 to 84 fow. Getting use to dipsy method. We picked up 10 keepers between 16 and 20 inches. Also 5 nice perch. Great day all in all. Wish I lived closer! Thanks to forum members for tips and pointers!!

  3. Hi Headshaker, we're you using size 1 dipsys? What color are your dipsys? Thanks. We caught our first Dipsy eyes yesterday west of sturgeon pt. 75 fow. Used size 1 painted black. 210 back on 3 setting. Purple with green dot harness blades. 2 mph SOG. Rookie on dipsys so interested in learning more. Thanks. Great pic of that nice eye! Ours were just 16 inchers. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  4. Good points on snubber use Seabee75. Maybe I will not need them. What do you use for leader? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  5. I ordered 8" clear ones to start and a friend gave me a couple old ones. They look faded yellow. Figure it is good to have them. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Erie United Mobile App

  7. Thanks, that was what I was wondering if I should get magnums for erie eyes or stay with #1's. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  8. What size are they? thanks.
  9. Question: what size and color Dipsy Diver would you guys recommend that I buy. I am getting a couple trolling rods & rod holders for my boat and would like to try dipsy divers. (Up to this point I have simply been drifting with bottom bouncers / harnesses on spinning rods.) Thanks.
  10. The walleye bite can shut down or turn on for many different reasons. I have seen a minor wind shift have an immediate negative impact. Maybe like someone taking a nice warm shower and then it goes cold all of a sudden... that can change a person's mood real fast until it warms up again. Same for fish probably, until they reaclimate they may not feel like eating. And then there is barometric pressure. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  11. The noaa open waters forecast calls for 15 to 25 knot NE wind and 3 to 7 footers with peaks at 9 ft. (9:42 pm forecast time). Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  12. Nice story and pictures RD9. They will always remember this day.
  13. Fished from 3 to 9 pm yesterday. Started drifting in 72 feet west of SP. Got several nice perch. Moved back towards SP around 7 and found some marks. Caught 1 short eye, lost better one, lost rod & reel to good fish, got a few more perch and 4 sheeps. Not the results I was looking for but it was a nice evening on the water. A bit calm.

  14. Maybe try hanging some sticky fly catching tape strips in your boat? I bring a fly swatter. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  15. I am heading out tomorrow afternoon from about 3 pm until dusk. Sure hoping it doesn't matter too much? Gotta go when the wind and wave window allows.
