Fishing lake Erie
« on: April 04, 2018, 09:36:00 AM »
I just got invited on a fishing trip in Sandusky Ohio to fish for Walleye in lahe Erie. The trip is scheduled for June 22 and 23. It's a Charter trip but I have never fished for Walleye so if anybody has any tips I would appreciated them. Thanks in advance.

listen to the charter captain. he will tell you all you need to know. i'm guessing he will have all the gear set up and ready to go.

that time of year, it's probably trolling crankbaits or crawler harnesses.

good luck. send lots of pics

My guess is also trolling. Lots of fast action when you hit the fish. Once you "pop" the line from the outrigger, give it a lot of time to get to the back of the boat before you start reeling him in. Or you will end up with a big mess real quick.  Best tip I can give you is just have fun.

My guess is by that time in June on the western basin the charters will be drift fishing and throwing worm harnesses, or they will be trolling, the jigging period is pretty much over by then. If it's trolling you are going along for a boat ride, the captain or 1st mate will rig up all of the rods for trolling and set the lines either on plainer boards, outriggers, downriggers to the depth and trail, when a rod goes off with a fish on you jump up and crank in the fish and wait for the next bite. If they are drift fishing and throwing worm harnesses, you actually get to fish with the rod and reel in your hands at all times, cast and reel. If this is the case always follow the instruction of the mate or captain. (Most fun) All charter captains have their own style of fishing, they know the lake and try their best to put you on fish. If the walleye aren't cooperating, don't be shy and ask the captain to put you on some good perch. Good Luck and have a blast.

i agree w/ gut. i'd much rather have the rod in my hand and try to entice the fish. i'm not a trolling/downrigger guy. it's great for beer drinking, but not to exciting IMO

it all depends on were ya go..mid to late June in a great time for eyes and jumbo perch...drift the sand bars...and jig the rip-rap (stone and rock) bottoms...troll the channel edges, Eire holds some monsters in both species...we used to use Erie-Dearies a lot way back when...slow roll drifts...jigging and even moderate speed trolling...produced tons of fish...the charter Capt...will have it figured out...cause if he aint on the fish he aint getting customers...

When you have a Capt & 1st mate as "GREAT" as Randy & Gut it's easy peasy. Just wondering though, little guy how many perch can you eat?  --099-780
