High winds from NE effect fishing again this week

I almost couldn’t believe Saturday’s forecast earlier in the week; another big NE storm was coming? OMG!! We were just talking about this a few weeks ago. There will probably be certain areas that were negatively impacted from Saturday’s big winds causing muddy water conditions where Walleye will be difficult to catch. By press time I am hoping things will be improving on the water clarity so I would suggest keeping an eye to the water as you head out. If you can see down a few feet then you are in a good area. Try stopping a few times on your way offshore and if the water looks chocolate brown keep going!


Capt Bob Brown Jr.'s Lake Erie Walleye Fishing Report

Larry McCouley with friends and family from Cincinnati with their walleye.

Due to strong NE winds last weekend,  the key to finding the biting fish this week in the Lake Erie Island area was all about finding somewhat cleaner water. Find the cleaner water, and you were in position to score on some nice sized Walleye. Charter boats casting were finding nice sized Walleye on shallow water reefs north of Kelleys Island, West reef off of North Bass Island, and on other shallow water structures around South and Middle Bass Islands. Best depths have been from 28’ up to as shallow as 6’ of water casting weight forward spinners and worm harnesses. Pink, chartreuse, or any other bright colors have been helping get more bites lately when casting these rigs in the murkier water areas. Walleye hitting the docks at Channel Grove Marina in Marblehead this week were as large as 32” and many in the 8-10 lb class.
