    Out on the water today at 08:00. Very slow going despite lots of marks on the sonar. Took a couple of large perch in the morning trolling 30-50 feet down on worm harnesses then one 3# walleye in the...

    Port Colborne (2012)

    Patti and I got out for the first time this season. Weather reports and forecasts from Environment Canada and the US National Weather Service called for less than half meter and 1 foot waves...

    Good advice, because it's a bit of a crapshoot. In my experience when forecasts have called for one foot waves I turn around about 10 percent of the time because it's too rough for my 18.5' Lund....

    Went out today just after 11:00, marked lots of suspended fish and large schools of baitfish a couple miles south of the two mile marker but no takers after a few hours. Nobody else doing much...

    I have to agree about right place right time, Jeff. Most of the success we've had this year was because other anglers were generous with their advice. Same goes for colours - we found that black and...

    How can a thread with only 15 posts have over 5,000 hits? Could it be that people who fish walleye out of Pt. Colborne are interested in getting information but not so keen on providing it?...

    Went out today, Friday, September 2, 2011 about a mile south of the 2 mile marker and south of Lorraine Point in c. 56' of water. Took 4# walleye on orange and green worm harness 80' back using 3 oz...

    Several km south of where you launch and just north of the border is where I'm targeting. Got to wait for the Lake to settle down before venturing out that far but it looks interesting for salmonids....

    I haven't fished the Selkirk area but would like to get down south of there into the deep water off the submerged Long Point escarpment to check it out. I figure it has to be prime salmon and...

    Looks like this thread needs a boost. We've been having good success this year in part to cooperation among fishermen. There're more than enough walleye out there to go around and it would be really...

    Went out ex Pt. Colborne yesterday due south into 72 feet of water, marked very few. Took only one small walleye on the down rigger and a few perch on the dipseys. Very slow. Heard a lot of chatter...

    Peppermint and I will be out just after dawn. We'll be heading southwest into 80 feet of water. Listen for our chatter on 68. Best of luck to all.

    inaccurate marine weather reports

    We've been stung a couple of times this summer by inaccurate marine weather reports. One foot waves reported, three/four foot waves actual. Got to the launch mid morning a week or so back and didn't...

  17. Taking a break from walleye - Salmon?

    Too rough to fish comfortably today (August 17/11) out of Pt. Colborne.

    We've been thinking seeking out salmon and steelhead on Erie for a change of pace. Has anyone got any advice (besides "don't...

    Yes, the blue walleye I caught years ago had no yellow in their colouring at all. I was a logger at the time and we had just pushed a new road within a quarter mile of a previously inaccessible small...

    Ah, so you go out on Ontario for the kings. I like to eat the fish I catch so have been restricting my outtings to Erie, where I am told there are some coho and the odd chinook, but widely dispersed....

    It figures the braided line would work better on the dipseys just because the stretch is less. I'll give it a go. I'd love to tie into a king. When I lived in BC I fished salmon whenever I could. We...

    Actually not working too well behind the boards. Just too much drag on the line and hard to detect strikes.

    Thanks for the feedback on line weights. I think I'll up it a bit.

    Blue Walleye hybrid?

    One of the walleye I caught recently had a pronounced bluish tinge to it, particularly its cheeks and back. Its eyes seemed to be a little higher up on the head, too. I caught blue walleye in...

    Thanks for the feedback. I've been using 12 lb Berkley Vanish, which I worry is a little light for the larger dispseys when back of a planer board - I've been using size 0 and 1. Any recommendations?
  24. Getting down deep - dipseys and conventional weights

    I've fished walleye all my life but only recently in Erie. I've had to learn about it all over again. I'm finally starting to get some good catches. I hear a lot of chatter on 68 about dipseys and...

    depth of slip sinkers

    These are 2 oz slip sinkers. We're getting down to 50-60 feet with them. Easy to use. Let out sufficient line until you're just tapping the bottom then bring it up a few turns.
