  1. Way to go JustFishin! Great picture. Thanks for reporting.
  2. I have never used a cleaning station. What do they provide? Hose and cleaning surface? or is there more to it?
  3. Fished out of SP yesterday from 1 pm to dusk. Caught 4 and dropped a few. Heading out the reports at the launch from guys who fished the morning were good. Things must have changed some in the afternoon as the breeze died down. Did some searching but never found what I would call a "good screen". Only marks sporadically. Got a nice 24 inch and a 23 as well. Lost the drifting breeze and probably should have gone to trolling sooner? Nice day to be out even though the cooler was light.
  4. I have had best fishing with crawler harnesses that have a pattern of orange, black and white paint on blades with back side of blade either copper or gold plated. I like to drift with bottom bouncers but if lake goes flat I troll with dipseys. Look through the posts for what settings if you use dipseys. I have found 3 setting and somewhere around 150 to 180 feet of line to work. I play around depending on how close to bottom the marks are. Good luck. They are biting well on all offerings from the reports being posted. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  5. The wind mills are not in the Adirondacks they are in Tug Hill area. The numerous protection agencies probably would block windmills from the Adirondack Park? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  6. Fished from 2:30 till 8 pm yesterday (Wednesday) almost straight out from SP with my daughter. Wind shifted and picked up later in afternoon. Drifted with harnesses and bouncers. Boated 7 eyes and a good perch. Ran into many sheepshead as well. Last bite before we called it quits was my best walleye to date. A slim 29.5 inch 7.2 pounder. Almost lost him as he flopped out of the net on my daughter. We quickly recovered and scooped him back up. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  7. Launched yesterday (Tuesday) out of SP at 2:30 pm. Motored west to about even with Evans Bar but out in 62 feet. Picked up one on Bottom Bouncer with fire moss VMC harness. Wind died shortly after that and went in shallower to jig. Not enough marks so motored back out in front of SP in about 58 to 60 fow. Trolled around with dipsy divers. Picked up 4 more. 1 on a spoon and 3 on same color tiger moss harness. One fish looked like it had been bitten by a muskie around the belly. Great day except the lake went completely flat with no wind. Not good for our preferred method of drifting with rod in hand. Great sunset and half moon coming in.
  8. Great post mike m. Thanks for sharing. I know they were pretty thick where I was but the cloudy water had them off the feed I think. If this happens again when I am out I will stick to the clear side of the silt line.
  9. JustFishin, enjoy your father daughter fishing trips as I know you are. I had my daughter along with me yesterday to. She is 25 now and still loves to get out. It was a great day even though the bite did not happen. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  10. Fished west of Sturgeon point today also. Bottom bounced deeper 67 to 59 until breeze died. Decided to troll shallower with dipsey divers and harnesses 50 to 55 feet. Lots of solid marks but no bites except 2 sheepshead and 1 perch. Fished from 2:30 till 8. The mud line from the rain and Catt had water cloudy. Good job mike m.

  11. Just an fyi... I had a number of long white tape worms coming out of one of the eyes that I filleted. I looked it up on line and they are not supposed to be a health issue as long as you cook the meat thoroughly. It was the first time I observed them on any walleye or other fish. There were some coming out of the mouth and a bunch in the cooler that had already left the fish. They abandon the fish when it dies from the article I read. Anyone else seeing them?
  12. Fished West of Sturgeon Point Wednesday (yesterday). Beautiful day to be out. Fished with rod in hand using mainly harnesses, and jigs. Caught 6 eyes and 5 perch. The eyes ranged from 19 inches to 27.5 inches. Caught 3 of the eyes out in 62 feet of water and 3 in 45 to 50 fow. Also caught a 10 pound catfish and a few sheeps. Not bad for first outing of the season.
  13. Thanks, much appreciated. If I go I will give a report.
  14. Hi JustFishin... thinking of making first trip on Wednesday... we're you west of SP? Thanks. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Erie United Mobile App
