Connie & her crew from Pittsburgh , PA , Florida , & Texas had a fish fry with my mate Dan & I . Although the lake blew ( 4-8 foot waves )Wednesday we shared some stories & had an excellent time together . We rescheduled for 2012 . Thank you Oneida for breakfast ; I'm looking forward to putting you on some fish next season : ) .
John & Son , Nick , & Denny from Pittsburgh , PA had a great experience on a not so co-operative lake (3-5 foot waves) . We delayed our start until 9:30 AM to hit the perch first and miss the 5 foot waves lying in wait at the 40-06 line ( 8 miles out in Walleye Country ). We brought 50 perch and numerous freshwater drum to the boat in 3 hours . We decided the bite dried up and headed out to the Walleye picking grounds , The fish finder revealed many Walleye holding on the 40-06 line but unfortunately they had lock jaw ; only 4 were brought into the boat for the duration of our day . We did share so good stories , commradere , and some laughs along the way . The lightning storm from earlier in the morning had the bite shutdown and the wind mill in Conneaut , Ohio told the tale with broke blades from a lightning strike .
