Went on my first walleye fishing trip with 5 other guys and the fishing was incredible! We went from Port Clinton to Put In Bay island on the Ferry and stayed on the island. Was down Friday thru following Friday, couldn’t get out one day due to winds and ended up with 233 walleye. The fish size is what is so impressive. Most were 24-28” and some heavy pigs in the mix. We trolled deep running Bandits in 30-40 FOW anywheres from 40-120’ back running 9 lines with planer boards.
You folks that live close to Erie sure have a great fishery there!

Forever in debt to my Father who introduced me to trapping.

My best was out of Clinton. Prefer drifting but you got to go to them.
Yes Erie can spoil a guy.

Cheek meat at Daves tonight.

Funny you say that because I was the guy that pulled all the cheeks out before removing the fillets.

Used to fish the Fall and Winter tributaries.
Before it got pouted by internet.
Big salmon and trout on light fly gear.
To go so now I would need a guide with leased access.

Looks like a great time and a lot of great meat to go with it. I got to fish Lake Erie once. It was a great time and experience. Only time I've ever fished for walleye.

Nice haul.
Fished the pickerel out of Sandusky years ago,around 85 I think.
Drift fishing and count down an erie dearie.
Had a pile of fish after a couple hours.

I offered to fillet them,but there was a place on shore that filleted all the fish for us while we pulled the boat out of the water.

Do you have a cheek spoon ? Some of the old grapefruit spoons with those jagged ends work great ?

Looks like a good time on the water.

Not a dull moment on the boat with that type of action Dave. Nice to have a planned trip work out the way one hopes for.

I don't say this often when it relates to walleye fishing, I'm jealous.

Eerie is definitely on the bucket list, preferably on the ice or April
