    Re: Walleye or Perch Fishing? Come Friday.

    The mayfly hatch always seems to slow the walleye fishing in the Western Basin, primarily within 8-10 miles or so of the shoreline and around the Islands. Once the hatch diminishes and then ends...

    Fished from off West Harbor in the South Passage to between SB and Kelleys to north of Kelleys and then Gull Island Shoal last Sunday. Real late start - 3:30pm to 7:30. Same. Very few walleye...

    Re: Mayflys

    I was up on Sunday, Port Clinton / Catawba / Marblehead. The hatch had started but wasn't thick. Same while out on the Lake. I would think this coming weekend will be around the peak including...

    Re: Couple Questions if someone could help.

    Icingeyes,

    Previous posts all good advice. It comes down to this:

    1. There will always be some walleye in the Western Basin, just not nearly as many once the water temperature gets to summer...

    Re: Trip

    Tabiser,

    You don't need to go running all over looking for deeper or certain water clarity. Limits are being taken in the South Passage literally a mile and half off shore. The South Passage is...

    Re: Advice for Casters/Drifters

    Randrasik,

    All good advice so far.

    You are lucky in that the walleye are close to west harbor this time of year. The South Passage, the area between South Bass and Kelleys Islands and the...

    Re: River Fishing

    There is real good river fishing on the Maumee, Sandusky, and the Portage Rivers. You're late for the major walleye run, but there are still significant numbers in the Maumee and Sandusky. For the...

    Re: 7 day forecast

    Another factor is wind direction. The walleye are in close to shore through April, on and around the reefs and shoals. If there are high winds but out of the southwest, south, or southeast, you can...

    Re: Radio program?

    Simple answer. Audience and money. There are or have been a few local radio stations along the lake that do or did a very quick Lake fishing report during the summer, I think only on weekends. I...

    Trolling vs. drifting - why?

    I have a question before we get into the season. We all know how trolling has boomed over the last 10 years. It seems itís all Lake Erie walleye fishing folks talk about, except for the spring jig...

    Re: Jigging

    The real cold weather and winds starting Friday and running through this morning shut everything down. Lake water temperature is just a few degrees above freezing, around 34-35 degrees. This cold...

    Re: Not Safe Boating

    He's right on.

    Lake is still over half ice covered, all broken up, constantly moving around. A spot is open water one hour ice covered the next. So it's incredibility dangerous to be out in a...

    I wondered when someone would point that out. :)

    Yes, I did focus on how color changes with depth. I forgot to add how water clairy effects color. It does. I don't have the info at hand, but...

    Re: Ice Fishing Reports

    Looks like the ice fishing season probably has at least one more weekend (Feb 25-27) left over at South Bass. Winds and warm weather / rain have broken up the Western Basin ice everywhere except...
  16. Re: Reading water color for more crankbait walleyes
