  1. We shouldn't be disappointed for the next few years. Lake Erie will be full a decent eyes. Can't wait! Sent from my E6782 using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  2. Thanks MM. Good to know. I was a little surprised with the size from there. I would like to try that sometime. Sent from my E6782 using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  3. I was talking to a guy at the fish cleaning station that had 9 big eyes. He said he got them in 35_40FOW. Ummm ok, sure. ????? Sent from my E6782 using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  4. After watching a nasty lightning show from the doc this morning in Dunkirk, we managed to get a 2 man limit of eyes in 5 hrs. Tried out at 105 FOW where spoons worked the day before, but 85 FOW was the magic number today. Any color bay rat was the best. Wasn't out long enough for the eclipse. The fish probably thought what I did. Just another cloud. Sent from my E6782 using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  5. Shorter leads have been working for us also. I have also noticed outside lines on turns have been catching fish, so I've increased my speed. But still haven't had much luck on sticks. A new harness I've been testing has been golden for me. Sent from my E6782 using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  6. And through all that, some how you managed to get the weight?[emoji15] [emoji12] Sent from my E6782 using Lake Erie United Mobile App

  9. Fished again 7_11:30a.m. Caught 4 good eyes. Lost 2 big ones at motor. @$#! But landed a 17# laker. Barcelona is loaded with eyes. You just have to work hard to keep all the shorts from hitching a ride. A big thanks to my wife for steering in not so calm water. Sent from my E6782 using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  10. Sitting in our slip in Barcelona.harbor drinking scotch.. Fished from 2_7p.m. caught 10 small keepers. Lots of shorts were released. 85FOW was best. 60 ft down, all worm harnesses. Good day with my wife. Hope the a.m. bite is good. Sent from my E6782 using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  11. That's funny! Sent from my E6782 using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  12. Fished the Catt. all day yesterday on a friends boat. Went to my numbers where we did well 2 days ago. Only got 2 good eyes. Tried everything 60_85FOW. Fish, and bait were scattered all over. No big schools. It's been a strange year. Between the weather, and the unpredictable bite it has been hit, and miss. Sent from my E6782 using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  13. Worm harness/Dippsy. Definitely not a walleye fight. Sent from my E6782 using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  14. Another strange day on Erie. Fished the catt. Started off slow, but really turned on later in the day. Caught 10 good eyes. (No shorts) and 2 monster Lakers suspended at 50 in 80 FOW. That's a first for me off the catt. They were revived, and released unharmed. My wife having a blast priceless. Sent from my E6782 using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  15. I had my sites on Dunkirk for the morning, but I heard the lake flipped out there. Can anyone tell me if it's worth it to try? My second choice would be the Catt. Or maybe SP. Thanks! Sent from my E6782 using Lake Erie United Mobile App
