    Cormorants / wind forecast

    FYI - Have a buddy hunting Magee Marsh this morning (I couldn't go) so I decided to check the local Lake web cams. Holly Toledo! I watched the Catawba web cam from 7:50am to about 8am, only because...

    Re: Walleye reports

    You have to match up the wind direction with the view (direction) the web cam is showing. 25mph wind out of the south, southwest, or southeast isn't going to show much wave action on the Huron web...

    Latest satellite image shows some clearer water in the eastern part of the South Passage to up between Kelleys and South Bass. West of the Islands is a little murky but not as bad as I thought it...

    Re: Maumee River in fall

    There is a small walleye fishery in the Maumee River, a "resident" population. More people have started fishing it in recent years so we're finding out more about it. There is also a very minor...

    Re: Trolling with downriggers

    Sherman51,

    Just curious. 72 foot depths in the Central Basin in the summer have a thermocline. I've scuba dived wrecks out in those depths in August and the bottom is COLD. The upper layer of...

    Re: Walleye returning west in fall?

    Stox,

    All said so far is good info.

    The Lake population of walleye is so high right now that catching them once the water temperature drops below 70 shouldn't be too hard all along the...

    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...

    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...
