Default walleye fishing in April?

Hi all,
I am new to this forum. We have a charter set up for April 8 & 9 of this year. We have never fished Lake Erie before and have some concerns.

What can we typically expect as far as weather, fishing and lake conditions?

Default Expectations - High

Expect above average fishing results. Daily limits...no problems. Fish are easily caught on jigs and blade baits (no live bait needed). Weather: Wet, Windy and Rocking (Dramamine is the order of the day). Waves can push the limits of the strongest stomachs. Most daytime high's are decent and tolerable (50's) but can go either way during that time of the year. Check in with a local bait shops for up to date information in terms of what colors are working. Buy something from them to make sure that they stay around year after year as well

Other than that, it's good fishing!

Number one thing is to dress for water temp, it ay be a 70 deg day but the water temp will be in the 40's. Better to dress warmer than needed, otherwise might not be a good time when fighting the chills.
