Walleye Anyone catching Walleye in western basin

Recommended Posts

Didn't get to go, greg2ha.  That post was last fall and the weather wasn't good. I've never fished Erie in the fall and wanted to give it a try.

Getting everything ready to start trips next month. Usually fish April through July.

All winter long Huron, Ohio anglers have been taking limits of large walleye in the open water this winter. Trolling stickbaits with 2 oz. weights clipped on at various lengths off side planers at speeds of .7 to 1.0 MPH. Clear waters are found out to several miles off shore produced. Check out the reports at "Ohio Game Fishing site, Lake Erie reports" forums.

Save your money and just buy standard lead weight, 1oz, 2oz, etc and put them on the offshore clips yourself. I'm sure you already have a plastic lure box to put them im. I have 1oz to 5oz and enough for 4 side planners.

Fish On!!

Bluefin,  I use Aurora Lites in the mid size.  I really like them, they pull pretty hard and stay out beside the boat. They also fold up nicely to store.  Having said that, If I had it to do over, I'm being told there are some other brands out there that equal the AL's at much lower prices, and I'd check them out.  I also just bought a couple sets of OR-12's thinking they'll be easier to use if there are only two of us on the boat.  Whether you use inlines or big boards, it's kinda like pickup trucks, everybody you talk to is going to tell you something else is better.

They were getting eyes trolling around the cans, at least last weekend (Sunday April 2) the water temp was 40 degrees, using shorter leads on the Bandits & Khaki at 25 back, speeds between 1.5-1.8 mph. But that was then, today winds gusting at 48 kt, waves 4-5 ft. Tomorrows forecast not much better; 23-26 kt, decreasing to 17-20 kt in the afternoon waves 3-4 ft., the Western Basin will look like chocolate milk, it will take days to clear up.
