Offshore Walleye Fishing
As you sit back & relax I locate schools of walleye roaming between 20 - 80 feet of water . In early June we may only be fishing a mile off shore as the water warms the fish will be found deeper with action really heating up July - September. The rising water temperature causes a yearly migration of walleye from the shallower Western basin to the deeper water comfort and forage of the Eastern basin . In August we may be as far out as 18 miles offshore in search of these trophy fish . Lake Erie is in my eyes the best walleye fishing in the world with average fish around 5 lbs and fish in the 10-12 lb range not uncommon ! My personal best is currently 12 lbs but I'm hoping that 14 lber will be on your trip ! Trolling is the most effective method for consistently bringing eastern basin walleye to the net . Planer boards , down riggers will be the normal set up . Running dipsy divers close to the boat in the 50-70 foot range and jet divers off the board lines to 50 feet and up in the water column . Use of plugs , spoons , and crawler harnesses will be employed in the spread of lines that enable us to run up to 14 rods at one time .
Offshore Perch Fishing
As you sit back & relax I locate schools of perch using my electronics . We position ourselves over the fish and drop anchor usually between 30 - 80 feet of water depending on water temperature . This fishing takes place within 7 miles of the Lake Erie southern shore line . You will be using quality Okuma spinning reels with 8 ball bearings and 6-7 ft graphite rods equipped with 6lb test fireline Crystal that shall detect the lightest nibble from a perch. The rigs will be tipped with Emerald Shiners and dropped just off the bottom of the lake . The pace at catching these tasty critters can be fast & furious. Occasional white bass and sheephead will be caught and are a fun fight along with the perch . Perch average between 8 - 12 inches on Lake Erie with some jumbo Perch to be had over 12 " ! In My Opinion Perch is the best table fare lake Erie has to offer .
