|The first picture here shows what we did on my first day back to work on Labor Day, Monday, Sept. 4th, after my six day "vacation" thanks to a six day unplanned and unwelcomed break because of bad weather. In 20 years of full time chartering, I do not remember loosing six trips in a row due to a stubborn weather system. Winds blew in excess of 25 knots from Aug. 29th through Sept. 3rd from the northeast keeping everyone off the lake. I had trips scheduled every day and it broke my heart to send all of the anxious anglers home that had planned to fish with us, some for months on end. Such is this business.|
|Today, Monday, Sept. 4th seemed like the first day back to school for me. And guess what? It was like the Walleyes had never eaten before. Action was fast and furious. Even though I had my doubts as we headed out.|
On a hunch, I headed out way further than we've been fishing. Right around the 20 mile mark was as good as I've seen it all summer. I don't believe that we actually ever did get all of the rods in the water! Awesome! What a tribute to how good the fishing has been this summer. Even a six day blow did little to slow down the record setting Walleye action that we've experienced this summer aboard "The Trophy". It's truly been a year to remember!
|As we enter September, my Walleye trips are finally winding down. In a few weeks we'll be switching our focus to the incredible Jumbo Perch fishing that this area has to offer each fall. I would like to remind everyone that we have plenty of dates still available for our fall Perch season. Anyone interested may reach me directly at 216-387-2656.|
|I would also like to take a moment and thank everyone that has fished with us thus far this season. We've all experienced something very special. I look forward to seeing some of you back for one more trip this fall during our final days of 2006 for our Perch season. It's been a very fast, and incredibly successful season here on the Walleye Capital of the world, Lake Erie.|
