  1. Any reports out of Barcelona recently? Last I heard fishing out of Erie Pa was slowing down.
  2. Greetings, My wife and I have been die hard fishermen for the past 30 years. We are skilled at trolling the finger lakes (mostly Cayuga) and Lake Ontario. We have decided to give Lake Erie walleye a try. Right now we plan to launch in the Dunkirk area. We plan to troll and drift jig for walleye/perch. I have located several vrbo’s in the area that seem satisfactory. Small, cheap, clean, and most of all safe parking for our Fishmaster 196 is what we desire. Our trip will take place within the next 2 weeks. any suggestions on lodging and walleye fishing would be appreciated. thanks frank

  5. Happy Spring! I'll be fishing vessel Godzilla this season, starting tomorrow. Anyone try any daytime drops off Van Buren?
  6. By now, most of us have knowledge of some decent estimators for the running depths of various lure setups (like the Precision Trolling data- and/or other dive charts etc). Use of this information can be critical to presenting your bait of choice in the strike zone. Right now I am only invested into a few 5 color lead core rigs and a ten color (as I've heard that the 5 color seems to get used the most with success). I've got dipsey's, snap weights, bottom bouncers, jet divers & riggers bla bla bla.... but I am wondering if anyone has come across a fairly reliable method to estimate the lure depth if you put on a deep diving plug, say onto a leadcore rig? we have a pretty good idea where say a shallow Renosky is running when added to a 5 color. But what if your graph is showing some good marks a little deeper? can you look up the dive curve for your deep diving plug and simply add that to where a 5 color should run? i'm sure its probably not that simple. I am just considering other "depth" options instead of spending more money on more lead core, rods/reels etc. anyone with experience running deep diving plugs on leadcore, please chime in. thanks
  7. How late into the fall does the walleye bite continue around Barcelona ? Have fished there in August but would like to try it later, late Sept early Oct if that's possible. We have a three hour drive . Thanks for any local info.
  8. Fished Erie out of Lampey yesterday. banged a ton of walleye, and as usual watched several boats struggle to catch fish. here is the easiest way and you don't have to spend a bunch of money. 2oz, and 3 oz inline weights , crawler harnesses, ( not a giant willow leaf blade with big beads) use a 3 beads and a Butterfly blade. 6' leader, butterfly blade with a half crawler and 2 oz inline weight. let out 70-80' of line and walla your in the zone, troll at 1.5-1.7 mph and you WILL catch fish right behind the boat. No dipsys, no big gear, We fish this way all year long , You feel the fish fight on lighter tackle and have fun! I go out to fish not to bang out a limit and be the first one back to beat my chest and say what a good fishermen I am like most. this an awesome way for kids to catch alot of walleye and not get wore out by a dipsy rod! good luck to all
  9. Fished Eagle bay Wednesday. 1 walleye about 21 inches and 1 Lake trout about 15 pounds. Fished 45 to 72 FOW from 8am to 2:30 pm. Lake flat, temps and humidity high. Walleye came on 7 colors lead off planer board on worm harness. Lake trout came off down rigger 10 feet off bottom on shallow Bomber long A. Left early cause fishing was slow and heat was brutal. There was about 20 trailers in parking lot in morning when we left and 2 when we got back. Boats scattered all over the place.
  10. New boat (for us) shakedown. Got a late start Saturday (6:15am), headed through the channel and around the point and set up in about 40 FOW among the zoo of boats and headed WSW. Found out quickly our subtroll wasn't working, so no down speed. Took us a little bit to get everything set up and learn the nuances of the boat. Took us longer than we though but finally got our three man limit around 1:30. Riggers with UV Stinger Scorpions and 8 color core with watermelon Stinger Scorpion too most pf the fish mixed with a few meat bites. The next morning was pretty much the same program, but with the exception of nearly getting ran over by the barge headed out. No joke, if we had a 10 color out, it would have been gone. Pretty slow , got our two man limit around noon, watermelon spoon again the hot ticket for us. One more week of this, then salmon time in Ontario.
  11. I’m planning my first ever trip to Erie around the 2nd weekend in August. Mostly interested in Walleye, but wouldn’t mind fishing for some smallmouth either. First off, not positive even where I want to go out from. From what I’ve read, anywhere along the eastern shore should be ok that time of year, so open to anywhere between Erie and Buffalo. Any recommendations on where to launch and places to stay would also be much appreciated. I mostly fish Lake Ontario, so I’m all setup for trolling, which I assume is the preferred method? Thanks For The Help Mike
  12. The wife and I are planning a weekend trip of walleye fishing out of Dunkirk marina. My question is, how far will we have to go to get into good walleye fishing waters. We only have a 14ft Lund deep v. Just don’t want to get caught in bad weather. Thanks
  13. Hello, I frequent the Lake Ontario United page quite often when I fish there, and decided to go fish Erie for the first time out of my boat today, so I figured I'd join here as well. I live a couple hours southeast of Buffalo, so most of my fishing trips have been to the finger lakes or Lake Ontario. I went on a charter trip on Erie out of Walnut Creek to celebrate my father's retirement last year, and did pretty well. Yesterday we finally decided to take a trip back to Erie, this time out of Dunkirk, to try it out instead of the typical Ontario salmon trip that we usually go on this time of the year. Most of the walleye fishing I've done has been in Chaumont Bay. After today, I feel like I'll be taking a few more trips to Erie soon. Today we launched at Dunkirk around 5:45, went North East out of the marina and started trolling NW of the first set of bluffs you can see heading east in about 30 feet of water. We picked up what ended up being the biggest fish of the day while still setting everything up. We had 2 lines in the water at the time. Trolled around there for a while, ended up turning around and trolling across in front of the marina, then went back to where we started. This was my first trip to Dunkirk, second trip ever to Erie, so this is brand new water to me and we felt like doing some exploring. We fished from around 6am to 12:30 or so, and landed 12 out of 14 walleye, 3 sheepshead, and a white bass. 3 of the eyes were over 28 inches, only one was under 20. We tried flicker minnows, flicker shad, bayrats, worm harnesses, spoons, just about everything we had in the boat, and the go to setup was a berkley flicker shad 7 perch color about 60 feet back, add a 1 oz clip on weight, then send it back another 40 or 50 feet. A bayrat wonderbread deep diver took a couple big fish too. As you'll see in the pictures, I picked up a Zebco Dock Demon rod at Walmart just to try something different. This caught 2 of the 3 biggest fish and was an absolute blast. Flat lined it out the back with a snap on weight and it caught more fish than any other rod. There was a lot of cottonwood fuzz on the water, and with it being dead calm in the morning it was difficult to manage at times. Fleas aren't terrible yet. I added a few photo's of some of the bigger fish. Based on the reports here, it sounds like not many people are fishing. The parking lot was pretty empty when we launched this morning. If I lived closer I'd be out there more often for sure. Sorry about the long story, this is my first post here. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. I don't know a lot about Erie, but I'll share what worked for us today.
  14. Fished 2 days out of Lampe Marina with AL from Kast King and Our Pro staff walleye champ Dylan Nussbaum! all I can say is WOW. no big ones, but lots of fish! 1 oz and 2 oz. inline weight 6' leader and a ghost blade harnesses, put 24 eyes in the boat in first hour of fishing, kept on fishin and throwin fish back. Golden perch # 5 Colorado blade was a killer with chartruese beads. Went shallow, fishing plastics for bass and sheephead. quite a few smallies up to 4 lbs and lots of sheephead. lets just say my boat had to go to the car wash because it smelled!!!
  15. 4 man limit, north of Vermilion in 43 to 28 FOW. Dipsy #3 35 back Dipsy #2 setting 26 back. Small dipsy 80 to 100 ft back 0 setting. Spoons and crawler harnesses. Fished 8A to 12:30. No pigs, all eaters. 5 short throw backs.
  16. Took this year's first trip today, solo. Lake was a little pissy at first then layed right down. The walleye was a feeding! Didn't take to long to get my limit.
  17. Jim and I did a walleye/bass combo on Lake Erie today. The bite was tough around Turtle Island and Michigan dumping grounds. We managed a few walleye and released some snagged ones. The walleye came on hair jigs and blade baits. The bass bite was sporadic, but we did get some decent ones including this hump back. Water surface temperature on Lake Erie was 42 degrees. Water clarity was only a couple inches down by Turtle Island. It was pure mud.
  18. So is everyone done for the year with the open water bite? Some of the inland lakes are still doing ok.. Chautauqua or bear but I may be done for the year if I don’t hear of anything great coming from the big lake. Any reports are greatly appreciated. Thanks guys and tight lines!
  19. 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.
  20. Went out of Dunkirk yesterday, didn't get out until 8:30 . Got a four man limit by 1:30. Spoons on downriggers, deep divers on 5 color, and shallow divers on dipseys. Everything worked in 90 - 105 fow straight out and a little west. Boxed out last three times out with Fredonia Greg. Great fisherman. Thanks Buddy
  21. are you still catching walleye or perch out of north ease marina. looking to get 1 more weekend in this year.
  22. Sorry about the late report but that trip gets harder every year {5 hours one way} Fished Saturday and Sunday in 50 to 65 fow the fleet was a little east so we went west just past the perch nets 2 man limit in 3 hrs on Saturday and 1 hr on Sunday running four rods dipsey's on a 3 setting out 90' and 100' downriggers 22' and 32' all worm harnesses anything with gold or copper .. So all you guys that live 4 5 or 6 hrs away and always wanted to fish Erie the good old days are right now !!!
  23. Fished in front of Catt creek Friday afternoon 1PM till 6:30 PM Got 8 fish off 4 rods. 2 dipseys, 2 down riggers. 2 stick baits, 2 worm harnesses. All took fish. Colors didn't seem to matter. Best fishing in 80 FOW. (1) 5 pounder, the rest smaller fish but didn't catch any under 18 inches. Downrigger depth of 52 worked best and big dipseys were set on 3 with 150 back and 175 back (wire divers). Could of put out 2 more rods on boards, but didn't bother cause action was fast enough for me without them. Ace
  24. New resident of Port Dover and new to fishing Erie. Any suggestions for good walleye fishing out of Dover? Thanks!
  25. Fished most off the week, Thursday morning had a decent bite out front. Fished 4,5,6 colors with Sticks little west of harbor. Nothing special probably a dozen fish with two over 5lbs. Friday came big fish Friday and no big fish for us to be found we covered huge amounts of water. Fished all depths and even caught eyes down deep in 45 degree water well below thermo which was at forty feet. So after boating close to 35 eyes all under 5lbs we had no plan. After beers we decided we were going to make a long run west and fish an area we are accustomed to. Friday night the wind blew 25 knots out of north east. Once we got to our spot the thermo has moved up to 32 feet. We planned on running some deep leads but quickly came out the two and three colors. At mid morning thinking about running seven color goesoff only deep rod we have goes with a 9.8 lber. 10 minutes later bam... 7lber and 8lber double on two and three color. Understanding how fishing has been I thought we needed two over 5lbs to win. Through the day we grinded and got two more good fish which we got. Last fish was a skinny 28” 6.4 lber. I thought this fish sealed the deal. We were overly confident. Big fish have been hard and I think we did 40 fish easy to get 7 over five lbs. wiegh in came along and winner wieghed in 42 lbs. we came in fourth with roughly 37.5 lbs and second big fish. The disappointment was horrible for my crew and I. Turns out the bigger fish turned on throughout the lake. I honestly thought 34 lbs would win it. Well maybe our luck will change in the sunset shootout. Ron
