  • Team LakeErieSportFishing.com Takes Second at Walleye Central
    The morning started off pretty good taking 5 walleyes on the first pass. The program was deep running Jet Divers with Jr. Sliver Streak Spoons back 180ft, Deep Reef Runners back 150ft and Dipsy Divers back from 85 - 65. On the first pass the Cat Dog Reef Runner was by far what the fish wanted taking 3 of the first 5 walleyes.

  • Fish Lake Erie Economically
    If you own your own boat it is a rewarding experience, you are the captain and have the option of fishing when and where you want. For many people, owning a boat is not an option for a variety of reasons. And trying to justify owning a boat with the dollar value of the fish you expect to catch in a season is a lesson in bad economics.

  • Single Egg Presentations Crush Lake Erie Steelhead
    This falls steelhead fishing in the Lake Erie tributaries was very challenging in 2007 because the water was low and clear. Normally this time of year a 1/32 oz jig in various colors tipped with a couple of wax worms or maggots is all that is needed to make the drag scream, but not this year! Light line, small hooks, stealthy bobbers and single eggs have been the ticket this fall.

  • Making Walleye Lures
    So, it’s at this time of year that I start tying the hundreds of casting harnesses and snelled hooks I will need over the course of 6-7 months of walleye, smallie and perch fishing. I’ve started by placing my orders for hooks, line, beads, blades and jig heads. I’ll receive those supplies in about 7-10 days. In the meantime, I’m using up what’s left of my ‘07 supplies.

  • Lake Erie Reefs Walleye Spawn
    The early spring snap jig bite on Lake Erie has put it on the map as the “Walleye Capital of the World” and for good reason. About 80% of the lakes walleye population spawns on the south shore in Ohio waters from the Lake Erie reefs just off of the Camp Perry Firing range to Maumee Bay. These fish are schooled up and are easily caught using a snap jigging method with a number of different lures. Read More...
  • Maumee River Run
    As winter comes to an end and the Great Lakes begin to thaw, nature signals tens of thousands of walleye, some from Lake St. Clair and some from the Western Basin of Lake Erie, to start their annual migration to the place their life began: the Maumee River.

  • No Need for a Boat in the Fall to Get That Trophy
    When comparing the eyes of a walleye to the eyes of other fish they are a bit odd looking, kind of glassy like a marble. They get even stranger at night, especially when the light hits them, they seem to glow. Walleye’s eyes have a unique membrane, sort of like a cats eye, that allows them to capture every bit of available light and then use it to see when other fish cannot. This explains why some of the very best walleye fishing happens at night.
