8/13 Fishing Report

After being away from the lake for a family vacation, we had a perch trip for a bachelor party this past weekend. Fun…Fun…group of guys that battled out a slow bite and some that were not feeling so well to end with 118 really nice perch. Perch fishing remains good with some days and locations being better than others. Great job to this group of guys!

No scheduled trips this weekend allowed us to do a little fun fishing. Saturday started out on the rough side and a little slow but after a few moves we caught a “really” nice 2-man limit of mostly 10″ – 11″ perch. Who says there are not quality size perch in the Western Basin???

Sunday morning was a great early morning before sunrise leaving the dock. Ran way east to some deeper water (44′ to 45′) and had a steady bite resulting a 2 man limit of 18″ to 22″ walleye in a few hours. Great Morning!

PERCH!! PERCH!!

Had 2 combo trips (perch and walleye) scheduled for this past weekend but due to the weather forecast we leaned towards the safe side and rescheduled. For Saturday the weather man completely missed the forecast so we got out in the afternoon – evening for a little fun fishing with a couple others from the marina. Decided we wanted to do some perching…boy did we find some perch! I can say the perch fishing is starting to take off. It was not a fast and furious bite but definitely enough to keep us busy with a lot of 9″ – 11″ perch. Had a ton of fun! We have openings for perch, walleye, or combo trips. Getting into some of my favorite times of year to fish.

Another great weekend of walleye fishing on Lake Erie!

Our weekend started Friday morning with a father/son duo trip. It was the son’s first time fishing Lake Erie. We first started fishing an area NW of Kelley’s Island where I’d caught some good fish the evening before fun fishing. Unfortunately they were no longer there. After making a couple passes we moved back down off of Lakeside. By this time is was late morning, full sun, and little wind but we still prevailed catching a limit of good “eater” size fish for them. Trutrip 40’s 35 – 45 back with small spoons was the presentation. It was a blast spending the morning with this father/son group and made for some awesome memories for all of us! Great job guys!

Saturday morning we had a group of 5 up for a Bachelor’s trip. We left the dock at 5:30am and setup again off of Lakeside pulling TruTrip 40’s 35 back with small spoons. Sound like a broken record? Sorry but this presentation is just slamming fish and is very common presentation this time of year. By 8:30am we had their limit of fish plus with some nicer fish mixed in. Awesome group to fish with! Had a great time!

Perch fishing is starting to take off…look for the bite to get better and better as we get into late summer and early fall. This is a great time to book either a Perch trip or Walleye trip or a combo of both. Fall is some of my favorite times to fish!

Fishing is still going strong!!!

Recent mayfly hatch slowed the bite just a touch but limits are stilling being caught in short order daily. With the warmer water and calm summer days, trolling has been producing better than casting but casters are still catching fish and have their days. Popular areas from the past week have been on the Canadian line between Middle Island and North Bass, South of Kelleys in the ferry lane, and east of Kelleys.

We ran three trips over the extended holiday weekend with great results. 1st trip was ran up on the Canadian line running Trutrip 40’s 30’ to 45’ back with small scorpion spoons. Had great results with limit catches. 2nd trip was on Sat after a NE blow all day Friday that had the water still on the rough side Sat morning. We opted to run west of the islands and fished around Rattlesnake Island in some protected waters. Again, ran Trutrip 40’s 25’ to 35’ back with small spoons. Water was stained a little and was a slower bite but still managed 24 fish for the group of 5. 3rd day had much better water conditions and allowed to run east of the islands. We had the same group that we had on day 2. Fishing was great with a limit of a better grade of fish than we’ve had for a few weeks. Here Trutrip 40’s were ran 75’ to 95’ back with small spoons, Dipsys on a 1 and 2 setting back 35’ and 65’ all caught fish. Great weekend on the water with some great people!
