Capt. Bob Brown Jr's walleye catch

Capt. Jerry Abele of Headhunter Fishing Adventures out of Channel Grove Marina in Marblehead guided his crew to this walleye catch.

Don’t miss out on the great fall fishing Lake Erie has to offer. Pretty soon it will be time to haul the boat out of the water for winter. Get out there and enjoy the resource!


Perch finally cooperating

Mark Motiff and friends from Wisconsin caught these walleye with Capt. Bob Brown, Jr. of Sundance Sportfishing.

The annual late summer and fall perch fishing had been non-existent for a while in August but recently lots of areas have lit up and the perch have been hungry and decent sized. The past few days were windy and cool changing the Lake Erie landscape as far as where to fish, but before the weekend blow and cool weather the bite was good off of the east side of Kelleys Island Shoal in 43 ft. of water, off the southeast corner of Kelleys in 31 ft. of water, north of Cedar Point in 38’, south of Gull Reef in 37’, near D can east of Niagara Reef, near the weather buoy north of Vermilion and west of Middle Island along the border.


Capt. Bob Brown Jr's Lake Erie fishing report

Jared Rhode of Port Clinton and two of his Bass from the Rayovac FLW Lake Erie Bass tournament over the weekend.

Lake Erie fishing has been improving all week in the local areas around the islands as some of the algal bloom we have been talking about has moved east and opened up a cleaner water area around Kelleys Island allowing some good fishing to be had for both walleye and yellow perch. Walleye were biting around South Bass and Kelleys Island in the shallow waters around reefs and drop offs in 11-24 ft. of water. Crawler harnesses or weight forward spinners like Tiny Teasers or Crooked Eye were working. Green and yellow lures were the best tipped with night crawlers.
