    I Doug Lewis fish out of Ashtabula
    it is 11 miles out to 72 FOW
    I use 2 Gallons of gas
    I use a 9.8 Tohatsu 2021 outboard
    it takes me 1 hour to get out 1 hour to get in
    I troll at 2.5-2.9 miles per hour for 4-8 hours
    I have yet to hook a walleye above 3 MPH
    I have heard 3.2 up to 3.5 MPH from some fisherman
    is that a true speed or a false speed
    I try different speeds lures weights
    Chartreuse also known as Yellow Bandits have been good since June
    the walleye have been at 71-73 FOW all of SEPTEMBER out of Ashtabula
    I have to use 5 OZ weights since walleye are near bottom
    all my numbers are true
    the bigger boats go right past me at 72 FOW
    and Yes I do have to steer out of the way of some of these Jack-Asses

    Thanks for the info. I hooked 1 at 4mph on the gps. Wasn`t trying, just in a hurry to get to another spot and to lazy to pull in the lines.

    Doug you are fortunate to be in Ashtabula and only have to go 11 miles to get to 72 feet. It is a further ride to 72 feet from Cleveland but it is not 20 miles. You canít go by the Lake Erie chart. My guess it is in the neighborhood of 15 to 16 miles out of Edgewater to get to 72 feet. Iím sure you pick the right days to do it but I commend you on going to where the fish are. Hopefully you have all your safety equipment in place in case thereís a problem. Good luck.

    I use to limit going out to 63-68 about 7 miles off Ashtabula. I am now comfortable at 72 FOW. constant 2 footers are also within my comfort level.
    No I will not be going out to 15 miles at all. the first time I went out on lake Erie I went out 300 yards and came back in nervous even that was beyond my comfort level. all the walleye have been on the bottom all of September. yellow has been the best color for me. there are very few fish on fish finder at any depth.
