Lake Erie fishing report

Capt. Kendal Parsley on Drift Away Charters guided his party to this catch of walleye.

Lake Erie walleye fishing continues to be spotty. Trolling for walleye was producing some decent catches off of the west side of Pelee Island in 24 to 32 feet of water.  Walleye were biting north of Vermilion 7 to 10 miles from shore in 38 to 52 feet of water. Trolling was the preferred method for producing numbers of fish. The casters were catching some also in these areas.


Harbors and bays great for largemouth

Smallmouth bass are turning on around the islands

Lake Erie walleye fishing was spotty this week with slow fishing some days and some decent fishing on others. Areas producing fish recently also coincided with where the water quality was decent. At the time of this article the bite was going ok in the area 6-7 miles north of West Sister Island, some fish west of Pelee Island near the Hen and Chicken Islands, east of mill point off of Pelee Island in 38-42' depth range.


Perch season upon us

Capt Erik Bosley on Eye Hunter 2 guided his party to this walleye catch over the weekend.

Time to dust off the perch rods and get out on Lake Erie and grab some of the great eating yellow perch that we love to eat here in the local area of Lake Erie’s north coast! Oh wait: where are all the shiner minnows that we use for bait? Fact is Lake Erie Shiner minnows are hard to come by right now all of a sudden. Why? Good question! I really don’t have an answer. What I can tell you is, all the local minnow catching businesses are complaining about the high amount of young WALLEYE they are getting in the nets as they are trying to catch the valuable baitfish we all desperately need for perch fishing.
