    Last Day of 2021 Fishing Photo

    Just checked the Lake Erie Shores and Islands Huron Webcam. 7:45am or so. If they can get out, you just can't keep the dedicated / obsessed fisherfolks off the Lake!

    Re: 10/17 Weather

    Always a big help to know where you are entering the Lake - either launch ramp or marina.

    West of Catawba Sunday won't matter - west wind. Coming out to the South Passage marinas, you can try a...

    Worse than yesterday forecast. Gusts up to 50mph. Both Miller and Jet Express ferrys not operating.

    With wind shift tomorrow and not much less winds, Lake will most likely be really murked up. ...

  11. Re: 8/21/21 NE of Cedar Point and ESE of Kelleys Island.(6 walleye came home) PLUS seen commercial net markers and I have a question.

    As with a lot of Lake Erie topics, most boaters don't have nearly enough knowledge of commercial fishing nets. Generally most boaters don't encounter them because they boat in the summer and don't...

    Re: Perch Caller

    No reason to not anchor. It's worked for 70+ years. You can try some things like not letting your rig weight hid the bottom so much or not at all. Remember also that perch school, so a large...
