  1. 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.
  2. How about jigging raps? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  3. 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.
  4. 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!
  5. 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.
  6. 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!
  7. 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
  8. 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!!

  10. 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

  12. 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

  14. 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
