Went out of the Catt yesterday. Found good marks in 72 ft straight out. I picked away for a bit then lost em. Ended up with 18 keeper perch and a 16" walleye. Got bait from ferry st mostly pinheads but a few decent ones mixed in.

Went out the Catt today. The lake was a little rough in the in am then started to lay down. Took awhile to find fish. Finally found some halfway decent marks in 67 ft and started picking away. We kept 45 between two of us and threw back at least triple that. Lots of smaller fish mixed in.

Took a break from Erie today....wife and I went to Silver and looked for perch. Had to weed thru plenty of small ones but we brought home the biggest 22 of them. Couple 11 inchers in there. Was lazy comfortable drop shotting in 18 feet of water with a piece of worm listening to the bills game. Caught some real hog bluegills and sunnies which we returned. They'll taste nice once the hardwater comes. Fun day, nice not to be wave bouncing for a change.

Does anyone know where to dip bait by boat in or around buffalo harbor?

We used to get emeralds in the summer out of Huron, Ohio using lanterns floating on inner tubes out in deep water at night. Emeralds would be attracted to lanterns at night when we would be blue pike fishing. Anchor up out deep at night with lanterns over the side of your boat and maybe they will come. You can catch perch at night doing this. I did better the other day with frozen salted minnows that I caught last March and saved. They are better than golden shiners.

I agree I would use a salted emerald any day the week over a golden.

That's the Union Ship Canal. Spring is the best time to dip them there.

Haven't tried that place yet.  No ones happy when only goldens are available. Every once in a while the niagaras show up on the piers in Rochester and I take advantage of that.  Of course you are not supposed to transport them to Erie, but...........

  That Union ship canal should have a boat launch/ramp on it with trk/trailer parking & lets hope its not like safe harbor ramps! I can't understand why someone hasn't done that yet. Maybe we need to get Higgins involved. It would be a perfect spot.  jmo
