Normally we add five mph to winds on Lake Erie compared to shore winds. But with high temperatures of surface water temperatures and cold air from the north, the lake generates its own weather system. Look offshore and if you see saw tooth waves out there conditions are not good. The weather buoys wave heights indicate the buoy travel, but it is not an accurate height of the wave since the buoy travels are short of the wave heights.

I see 11 -12 MPH winds out of the N.E. Friday to Sunday. Gusts to 18 MPH. Then rain Monday. How do you think a Lund Alaskan 1600 would fair. Seems to me they always under estimate winds. I have a handicapped wife, so I can't let her get beat up  by wind and waves. 7 hours trip one way for us also.  thanks!
Stay home It's rough .I have place along the lake ( Angola) I see plenty of Whitecaps today.

Fished a little bit east of the harbor today. 23 in just under 3 hours, one Steelhead as well. We stayed in 75 fow the whole time. Everything worked, mix of sticks and harnesses. 5-6-7-9 color cores, dipseys out 80 to 90 on a 2 setting were really good. Riggers were ok but the quietest of all the rods.

There’s Walleye everywhere. You don’t even have to be any good at it anymore.

Thanks. but I was wondering about the location of the perch nets. I do agree the walleye are as plentiful as I’ve seen in a long time

They are always there. You should probably be outside perch nets this time of year.

Thanks. usually I fish SP and Dunkirk.  Thought I’d try Barcelona and a friend was told me to be careful of the nets. Wasn’t sure how deep of water they were in.

They are trap nets, not gill nets. The fish stay alive in them usually. They target yellow perch that are bottom oriented.
