  1. I agree with you JustFishin! The LEU forum and this thread were once again my go to resources for fishing on Lake Erie. Tons of helpful information is readily shared and the fishing reports have been very helpful. My last outing was back in September. Boat is in storage now and hoping to do some hunting now and then some ice fishing. Nothing better than the fantastic summer walleye fishing on Erie though.
  2. Fished pretty far west out of SP today from 12:30 to 7:30 pm. We ended up with a 2 man limit with some better size fish this time... (22,22,23,24,25 inch with the rest smaller). Caught them in 70 to 76 fow. All came on worm harnesses drifting with 1.5 or 2 oz. bottom bouncers, rod in hand. Tried a new Gambler rig for a while and did not get any takes on it but it was before the bite picked up though. I like the spin action of the rig at slower drifting speeds. Fishing was slower from 12:30 to 4 and picked up from 4 to 7:30 when we finished.
  3. That's a great picture. Nothing better than fishing with your children and catching a nice one to make lasting memories. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  4. Things changed in the afternoon on Sunday I think. We got out on the water about 2 pm and fished until dark. Fishing was slower than I expected given the reports of limits at the launch from guys who were coming in. We were drifting with harnesses & bottom bouncers. Caught 5 eyes 17 to 21 inches and 7 jumbo perch. Some perch were very fat with largest being 13.5 inches. Wind died from 4 to 5 pm and then shifted and picked up again from 5 till dark getting stronger as we pulled into marina. Lots of fish marked but tight lipped maybe due to wind and pressure change?? The eyes we got and a number of fish lost were biting very light and slow. Definitely not on the feed like our last time out last week when we limited.
  5. Garry, good to know that I am not the only fisherman having trouble getting dipseys to trip with typical size walleye. Mine are also set as light as possible without tripping on the drop. I added snubbers to reduce line twist. That has helped that issue. I have to watch closely to detect the hit. Have reeled in a number in the 17 to 20 inch range that I didn't know were on. My Cabela's dipsey rods may be too stiff for walleye? Going out Sunday. Hope to be able to drift if wind is above 10 knots or so. Thanks for sharing.
  6. Fished from 2 till 7 pm. Straight out in front of Sturgeon point in 58 to 63 fow. We got our 2 man limit. Size ranging from 17 to 21 inches. Dropped a few good ones as well. We used 3 oz. Bottom bouncers with harnesses, rod in hand fishing. Great day. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  7. Nice going RandyD. Glad you got into them like that. Great report!!
  8. Way to go JustFishin! Great picture. Thanks for reporting.
  9. I have never used a cleaning station. What do they provide? Hose and cleaning surface? or is there more to it?
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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.
