Had a great finish to my 2009 erie season. Went out 6 times this year and each trip was very successful and no bad weather. Last time I saw fishing like this was 2006 but it's even better this year because of the plentiful 2003 year class 22-24 inch fish along with the surprisingly huge 2006 class.

Last 3 trips have been BB's and harnesses in 26-28fow 1.3-1.5mph right on the Mi/Ohio line straight out from Stoney.

Today went out by myself and went 10 for 13 on the walleye in 2 hours. 7 keepers, 3 shorts, 3 lost. 2 perch, no trash fish


Hot colors for me have been gold holo with gold holo beads, chartruese blade and beads, blueberry muffin blade w chartruese beads. Gulps worked just as well as crawlers. I would periodically dip them in the alive jar to recharge.

Get out there if you can. Boat is headed to the west side this week for the next 2 months for salmon

Nice job Tom! We had a great year out there as well and after the tree day trip this weekend I am beginning to think of the west side as well. I might be getting up towards Whitehall next weekend. Where are you going to be?

How deep Mike? Are you familiar with that area? I have been wondering if anyone knows or thinks that Walleye in that area would move up close to shore to feed in the 5-6 fow range, or do they move in on the 10-20 fow range during the summer, at night? My uncle lives on the beach juuuust before it turns into a conservation beach leading up to Holiday Beach..it starts sloping deep right away and I can definitely cast out to 5-6 fow..I'm sure it's good for the Fall........but summer? Any thoughts? Thanks.

I launch out of Bolles for the blade bait/hair jig bite in April. After that I launch out of Sterling either fishing in the bay or heading over to West sister. Both are excellent launches.
