Perch fishing is getting better in the western basin

Cathy Boreako

Our precious Lake Erie is turning green in the Western Basin, but from reports I have read the colder water temperatures this season are keeping it from turning to pea soup in major amounts like past seasons. But, this report is not about the green goo, it is about another green colored water creature; our beautiful Lake Erie perch. 

As you are well aware, we had a major cold front last week, with strong northwest winds that blew for 3 days straight. The walleye bite had slowed down, so I took an opportunity to go after some perch. From the reports I could gather, several areas are doing well for limits of nice sized perch. There’s a big area up on the northwest side of North Bass Island, that’s south of “Taco Bell” (red can on the border), that’s doing very well right now. Expect to go through a lot of smaller throw back sized perch, white perch, and sheephead to get a limit of 8-12 inch sized perch.

Danbury looks to get over the hump

Last season, the Danbury Lakers struggled to a 3-7 season, but were quite close to going 5-5, losing two games in gut-wrenching fashion. This year, head coach Bryan Dudash is hoping his offense can continue to put up points and that the defense can improve and hold its opponents in check.

The defense, more than anything, will be instrumental to Danbury’s success this year as the Lakers trying to establish themselves as one of the top teams in the Toledo Area Athletic Conference. For the past three years, Danbury has been able to consistently put up points, but it’s been defensively where they’ve struggled.

Resignation, accusations and thanks all given at Tuesday’s Port Clinton City Council meeting

An array of topics were covered at the Tuesday, August 26 meeting of Port Clinton City Council. This was the second meeting of council where public comments were moved to the beginning of the meeting. Among the public comments were comments regarding a previous article ran in The Beacon about the continuation of a group called Friends for Port Clinton. In the article Port Clinton Mayor Vince Leone was quoted as saying if CORD’s ballot initiative passes (where citizens vote in the handling of city park affairs), it could affect future events and festivals in Port Clinton.

Rick Noderer, a member of CORD, spoke saying that in the copies of event forms that have been approved by the City states nowhere that the form is a lease. Noderer then quoted The Beacon article stating that the mayor said events and festivals in Port Clinton will fall victim under the initiative if passed.
