Fishing out of North East PA

Recommended Posts

I have a Lund Alaskan 50 HP tiller and was wondering what folks think of the wind and weather forecast for fishing out of N.E. this Mon to Friday? It's a 16ft 10 in and 82 inch beam boat and pretty stable boat. Actually feels safer than an older 19 foot Starcraft I had. looks like wind out of the north, and I imagine that's not good for the south side of Erie. Thanks, Ron

If I can get suitable accommodations, I think I may come up Monday morning. I've got D/R's, big boards and inline boards. If boards are best for now, I;d rather use my big boards verses the inlines. Any recommendations on what to bring along? Thanks, Ron

NE and E winds blew all the warm surface water back to Ohio. Cold water upwelling replaced it. Some day the SW winds will return the warmer water again and fishing will return.

When the fish go deep and are hanging out in that 50'+ range, we fish with single strand stainless wire and a deep diving crank just over the Ohio line from PA. Most spool up 300' of wire on top of backing on a reel and put a mono or fluro leader.

Dive curve is 1' of depth for every 10' of wire + crank depth. So 300' of wire with a Rapala DHJ-12 will run 49' down at 2mph. It's very effective once the fish go deep.

It's actually why I stayed and played with sheep lol...I gotta admit tho (especially bc we don't eat walleye) it was a good time watching those sheep pull drags on the kids lol
