|Last week was the week for major mayfly hatch on the south shore. With the north winds and some brisk winds the lights went off along the shoreline of Port Clinton. As in the past fishing years the fishing slowed down to a hand full of walleyes reaching the docks. Although the fishing started to pickup by late week to the weekend but we had major storms move into the area all weekend into early week.|
The casting was very good for walleye around Crib and Niagara reefs and just west of the islands in 30 plus foot of water. Also, the rock piles are holding some very nice walleye. Further east the action continues to be good around Gull and Kelley’s reefs. Fishing weight forwards and harnesses are the answer, but small boaters and a few charters have yet to learn the entrance to fishing areas. THESE FISH HAVE BEEN HIGH IN THE WATER AND BOAT ACTION HAVE SHUT DOWN THE ACTION. Please respect other fisherman on the lake, there’s enough fish to go around. The trollers have done very well with short leads and the dipsys are limiting on the catches.
This is the week that we have been waiting for, BASS SEASON OPENS ON SATURDAY. Yes, this is my favorite time of year, bass fishing. Both the Canadian and U.S. waters start and it looks like another good year. Last year we boated bass over 22”and several over 21”. Also, perch have been reported west of the islands and around the firing cans. Limits of nice perch have come in, this is great to hear and it’s early too.
Last weekend we fished Canada and brought in limits of walleye weighing over 150# per boat and very little mayfly action up there. Remember your I-68 and license before you cross.
We have some great dates open in July, give us a call or check our web site www.lakeeriefishing911.com.
