    Im headed to lorain next week for vacation. I fish lorain quite a bit past few years. I Know stick baits are the go to now. I have tried stick baits including this year with very poor success. I always wonder why. I have to think there must be a trick to it. Last week an unassisted Erie Deerie on a long line outfished them Trolling big time at Kellyís. I ran shallow to deep. Didnít matter. not a single stick bait fish.

    I would keep trying your crankbaits.You will become better at it the more you use them.The water temp is really on the warm side now for cranks but many still catching well with cranks anyway.The most productive crank right now are bandits.They have been really out catching everything else.They almost never need to be tuned either.Cranks work best off inline boards using mono.No leader is needed.Always have longest lead on outside board.You can also experiment with a snap sinker 20ft from crank which you put on inside board.Then cover water column with different leads.Read current posts and start with those leads and make some shorter and longer.We caught well so far this year with 70 and 80 leads.Read some recent treads where 25 catching now too.Colors,start with stock colors.Get 2 blue chrome off the bat.Its the best color.Khaki,humble bee,taco salad,black head wonderbread are other good stock color.I B frozen a great custom color.Good luck.

    Four limits so far. Speed 2. A solo limit this morning weighing 28#. after donating breakfast to the big swells. Man it was rolling. Three today casting gold Erie deerie on a five count. Then I couldnít take any more had to get the boat back moving to trolling. 1.5 oz in line wt back 90 double willow blade harnessed outfished everything hands down again. One fish on bandit. Two or three on big spoons and dipsy. Best fish by far off humps south of dump.

    6/6 - Started @ 7:AM trolling bandits 70 and 60 back 2.0 MPH 40 to 45 FOW just NW of Hot Waters. Trolled towards the dumping area Nothing by 10AM. Few marks. Decided to head west towards Vermilion and Huron. Found good marks 4 miles or so west in 40 FOW. Only picked up 1 by noon. Ended up @ Vermilion River area. Then started tolling back towards Lorain. Picked up the rest of our 2-person limit in 1 hour. Chrome Bandits 80 back did the best. 40 FOW. Inside of the pack of boats.
