  1. My previous post was not intended towards anyone particular, just a general scenario I’ve came across before that was shocking to me. Glad to hear you guys are getting them in the daytime, friend of mine was on Evans bar last night he caught 4, also said sturgeon point raised their launch fees to 10 bucks
  2. I will always help another boater if I can safely, but I’m in a 12 ft with a 3.5 hp, I will still roll up and offer assistance of a phone call if I can. What gets me is the guy that just bought a boat that’s been garaged since 2010 that they just got running and took it out to the main basin and their water pump destructs. You gotta have a big respect for Lake Erie and your equipment reguardlesd the size of your vessel.
  3. http://www.boatus.com/membership/ for 72 dollars a year why would'nt you get this to not have to rely on others? I've been in a broken down boat waving for help while people look and just keep going
  4. Got out with a buddy on his boat out of the Catt on sunday 5/27 we only managed to catch 1 perch. Searched all over and the perch schools were very small and spread out. There was actually a current out in front of the state park 55 fow thats where we got our one perch. Standing in the middle of the boat my line was angled down behind the transom it was strange. Decided to go in closer and drift around and cast jigs, picked up a nice walleye in 33 fow
  5. Thanks everyone for the replies, next calm weekend the lake gives up i'm gonna try and get out there and will post a report.
  6. I meant in general when I can safely get out there, like this time of year would perch be out in front of Dunkirk? It seems like I only ever read reports of perch out of the Catt or sturgeon point
  7. Would right out in front of Dunkirk this time of year in that depth range be worth trying to locate perch? im in a 12 footer so thats the closest depth I know of close to shore and comfortable distance heading out thanks
  8. we made our own worm burner using a glow colored dirty white boy spoon and to my surprise nothing touched it, looked soo fishy in the water too. Will try it in the spread again tho
  9. Caught an orange back tagged walleye this year and unless you call the number on the tag, or remove the transmitter from the fish you have no way of knowing NOT to freeze the fish whole. Luckily I did not freeze it, but if the transmitter gets frozen it ruins the data on the transmitter
  10. what type of wet fly just a standard soft hackle? Perch eyes seem to work better for me in the winter tipped on a jigging spoon. Try a drop shot rig using an aberdeen hook and threading on a 3" berkly powerbait trout worm, let it hit bottom and just shake your slack line, leaving the sinker on the bottom the whole time. tying your hook 20 inches up from your sinker lets you super slowly dead fall the bait by letting some slack in your line, watching for the line to jump. 6 pound test braid to a micro swivel then mono or flouro helps tremendously at those depths.
  11. thanks yellowpike, that was my original thought to get the bigger diameter but heard from someone that since its thicker diameter and more water resistance on it that it created a bigger bow in the line than the smaller diameter leadcore
  12. My question is what pound test or diameter leadcore do you guys run on erie?
  13. I think he means from Point Abino Canada to Sturgeon Point NY, its a natural choke point in the lake from fish leaving the upper river going west into lake Erie. I assumed the majority of the perch spawned out in that 45-55 foot of water in Erie? Can anyone chime in on where the perch actually spawn?
