  1. Fished out in front of the windmills. 25 to 45 feet of water. Nothing. never saw a fish on my screen in about 1 hour of trolling. Water temp about 52.
  3. Lake Erie Ice Cover - She looks pretty locked up! Hopefully, it'll lead to another good year for good spawning conditions and fry survival! I think the "downside" to this will be additional predation pressure on the perch fishery.....
  4. I know this isn't "Lake Erie" specific, but still wanted to share... pretty impressive fish! Chad
  5. Well here we go. Good luck boys Sent from my ASUS ZenFone 2E using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  6. Sturgeon Point Sept 23, 2017 Fished solo today in front of Evans bar just to see if fish are there like at the Catt and they are. Boated 8 and lost 2 behind the boat. 65 to 71 feet of water. Took all off down riggers set 55 to 64 down. Also ran a wire dipsey on 2 as my 3rd rod from 120 to 165 back with spoon or harness or renoski and it never got touched all afternoon. Best lure was watermelon renoski on rigger near bottom. Marked tons of fish all day but everything I boated was 16 to 24 inches. Screen at 3:30 till 5:30 PM was constant fish, all different depths. Marked lots of bait. I was the only guy there trolling. There were 2 or 3 drifters or perch guys fishing 62 FOW but I don't know if the were catching. I think they were because they stayed there all afternoon. Met a guy in the parking lot who was tying down his boat getting ready to trailer home like me. He and his buddy had a 9 pounder and a couple of 5 pounders. He said he fished west of me in 70 FOW. They boxed out and had a better catch than me. Beauty of a day. 1 foot waves max. Nice breeze. Bunch of ankle biting flies but still awesome. Wish it was always that calm.
  7. Downriggers Looking for advise... If Walker & Scotty downriggers offer lifetime warranties, why do so many boats have Cannon or Big Jon Downriggers?
  8. DO WALLEYE HAVE WINGS? THEY SURE DO! Now that Walleye fishing has been fantastic I thought I would Repost my March 20th Thread "IT’S NEAR TIME FOR DELICIOUS WALLEYE WINGS" LINK: Yes, Walleye do have Wings. It's the Chin or Breast Meat. For years, anglers and consumers have known about the delicacy of walleye cheeks, but are now learning of the new rage of Walleye Wings. It has taken many years for Walleye Cheeks (the filet mignon) to go mainstream which are now sold at many Fish Markets, in time I expect Walleye Wings to do the same instead of being wasted by the ton or going for Cat Food. If you haven't eaten any you will find that they are good as Cheeks and if not better tasting. Several years ago (well over 25) I read an article in OOD Magazine on how to cut out and cooking "The Pecks" (now called Walleye Wings and also known as Chin & Fins, Bat Wings, Wishbones and Rabbit Ears). I had a copy of that article and showed it to numerous other Walleye Fishermen over the years to get others eating this delicious part of the fish as I have been doing since reading that article. It’s a shame how many of The Pecks (Walleye Wings) go to waste each year when the public could be enjoying this part along with the Cheeks. If you have never heard of them, it is the “V" under the gill plate that is normally tossed out with the head after you fillet the fish. When the Wings are cut out with the Pelvic/Ventral Fins, then cut between them on the larger ones so you have two Fins and what you'll notice is a big hunk of meat attached to each. The Fin can be used as a handle. The bones are larger and somewhat flat and easy to pull out as you eat them. The meat is very sweet, and makes an awesome appetizer. You can bread'em, fry'em, saute'em, grill'em, smoke'em then coat them in whatever your favorite Dipping Sauce is for Fish. Cocktail or Tartar (preferably homemade) or even Ranch or Dill Dressing. If you Grill"em, season with a little Alpine Touch and Cajun or your favorite seasoning. Dip in Drawn Butter. I learned from that article to make the “V” cut which only takes seconds, which includes both Pelvic/Ventral Fins as shown in these YouTube Videos. Cutting out Walleye Wings Walleye Cleaning – Chins /Walleye Wings How to cook Walleye Wings- Savory Goodness (In this Video the Wings are marinated in Beer) Recently, in March of this year I thought I would Google "Walleye Wings" looking for additional information and I find a Company from Kenora, ON called Walleye Wings Inc. who has a Website and Facebook Page. They have taken Walleye Wings mainstream with Packaged Breaded and Smoked Walleye Wings and currently distribute to several restaurants, grocery stores, lodges and gas stations in the region. The Company trademarked "Walleye Wings" on June 16, 2010. If you are now enjoying Walleye Wings, please tell all your fish'n buddys that don't utilize this part of the Walleye and have them read this article and check out the YouTube Videos. I do hope more Walleye fishermen will be enjoying their Wings this upcoming Walleye season. Please Post your thoughts on this Thread once you have tried them.

  18. Small Boat Harbour Sat May 27 Fished today in front of wind mills. 9 rods depth water 42 ft to 19 ft. Not a single fish 7 AM till noon. Not even a junk fish or a bass DEC girl was taking a survey when we put boat on trailer. She had a grand total of 1 walleye and 3 smallies at noon and there had to be around 50 boats out there. A few guys at Seneca shoals which we did not fish and the rest scattered between wind mills and south gap. Tried stick baits and harnesses. 2 colors lead and 20 ft jet and snap weight. Didly squat
  19. Lamprey sores on Walleye So far this year I have caught 2 Walleye with what appeared to be Lamprey wounds on them. Sores were round shaped and pretty fresh. I have only been fishing Erie for a few years and don't recall ever catching any with sores like these in the past. Are some years just worse than others ? I know they both spawn about the same time and maybe it just over lapped more this year than other years I have fished. Anyone else catching any like this so far this year ?
  20. Dunkirk Sunday afternoon Headed out at 4pm sunday. Fished marks in 70 fow. Boxed 1 waldo which fell victim to a big lip bay rat flatlined 300 back. Yet another t-storm chased us off before we could night fish. Starting to wonder if dropping on some of the bottom lurkers would yeild results...we'll see
  21. Dunkirk/Van Buren I put in friday evening for the season and watched the walleye fleet head for Van Buren. Is the night fishing style there (when there is a ton of boats) to anchor or troll? I didn't go and get into the frey. Secondly, when does the day start to become productive in the area? Thank you.
  22. New to the Dunkirk Fleet I'm excited to say I will be joining the Dunkirk fleet this year as a weekend warrior ofcourse. I've been fishing silver for many years on Ontario and have taken up learning how to fish gold...tastes much better. Good luck to all, see you on the water. Capt. Rich
  23. Water levels Does water levels effect fishing other than water clarity?
