Fishing Lake Erie with some new Ohio friends
January 06, 2019 by Capt Pork Chop
We met at Mazuriks at 8 am and headed out around 8:30. we went into shallower water this morning because the wind blew out of the north all night and i marked a lot of fish at 35' to 38' the day prior and i thought maybe it would clean up that water a little and we could catch them. I was wrong.. dang it.. and it was still too muddy, we trolled there for about 2 hours and caught one really nice fish on the bottom.
We moved back north and trolled south with the wind and picked up 2 over the dumping ground. Then the wind changed to out of the west and slowed a bit and we followed that mud line again west to east slow slow and slow. The temp dropped 10 degrees from the day prior and slowed the fishing way down, the bite was not nearly as good as saturday.
We kept working and ended up with a nice 29.5" fish ohio and about a 3 man limit. took some moving around and keeping after it for that. same program as saturday worked but we used more perfect 10's since the cold moved in and that seemed to help. the fish wanted everything slow.
most fish caught over 40' to 47' of water 20' to 30' deep perfect 10's 20/20 and 20/30 caught most of them.
it was a nice day after lunch and i had a nice time making some new friend and sharing fish stories. Today may be the last fishable weekend for a while but it was very enjoyable to get the boat out and suck up some sun. Hope for more weather like this soon.
See you all on the lake.. tight lines..Read More
Great day fishing on Lake Erie with a crew from Michigan
January 05, 2019 by Capt Pork Chop
We met at mazuriks at 8:30 and launched about 9 am. headed out to about 40' of water between kellys and marblehead and started marking fish just north of the muddy water. had a quick training on how to set lines with snap weights and boards and we started fishing.
We ran perfect 10's at 20/20 and 30/30 with 2 oz then some husky jerks and some bandits deeper and out the back with stern planers. i run the stern planers because the boat pushes the fish deeper and the stern planers run them right into the fish after we cross over them. we caught about 6 fish on those today. we covered the water column from 15' to 30' deep catching fish on all lines at every depth any bright color seemed to work nothing stood out.
we ran straight east out to about 47' of water and caught fish consistantly the whole way. The wind died down around noon to 2 and the fishing died off. the wind picked back up at 2 and we started catching them again. we didn't even need a trolling motor most of today, we drifted along with the wind between .8 and 1.2 and steered with the main in the water, great for gas mileage.
We ended up with 3 fish ohio's a 4 man limit and 3 for the captain. The michigan crew had the best day walleye fishing they have ever had. it was an amazing day on the lake for January hope for more soon.Read More
