  1. A few nights after I got the big walleye in my post, I hooked up again. I thought, "Oh boy, another one". What a fighter! Yup, a big sheepshead. Sure was exciting though.

    Not real happy

    Sounds more like the factory is at fault, if the dealer couldn't get parts. Were you done fishing for the year when you dropped it off 2 weeks ago? Of were you looking for a quick repair so you could fish the fall?
  3. I got this 29 inch, 9.4 pound walleye Sept 11th around 8PM near the 40 acre shoal. Was trolling a worm harness and a 3 oz bottom bouncer in 30 fw. t

    Finally back on the water

    I'll be fishing the Canadian side starting Friday. How deep are you finding them?

    Mickey and Chowder at Dunkirk

    Erie in North East sure wasn't smooth like that last weekend!

    What type of down rigger setup

    I've used Eagle Feet on 2 16 footers. Never had a problem. Keep in mind you need to set the "drag" on the riggers so they with pay out line if you snag.

    Oneida or Erie?

    As I'm retired, thinking about arriving on a Sunday and fish during the weekdays. Shooting for the 29th of the month. Weather will be the key factor. I'll bring my riggers for sure. The wife and i will be camping out of my slide in camper. Just put A/C in it. We normally don't camp in the summer, just spring and fall.

    Oneida or Erie?

    I've fished Chautauqua before, and that is a good option to save the trip if Erie gets bad.

    Oneida or Erie?

    Thanks for all the replies! The reports from Erie are outstanding! Seems like a no brainer to give it a try. I'm thinking about heading up on the 27th for 5 or 6 days. I guess the weather will determine my final destination. Should I bring my D/R's?

    Oneida or Erie?

    I'd like to get up for some walleye later this month. I fish with my wife who is handicapped, so a trolling bite is best for us. I just have a 16 foot Lund Alaskan tiller boat. It's 16' 10"s with a 82 inch beam, 50HP Honda. Depending on the weather, I might have more opportunities to get out on Oneida versus Erie. I have a slide in truck camper, so we would also need a decent campground. If I was to travel to Barcelona, what winds do I have to look out for?
  13. I couldn't find any decent perch on the Canadian side the first 2 weeks of June. I looked high and low. The area I fish near Gananoque gets hammered pretty hard ice fishing for perch. A local shares info with me, and he wasn't doing much good either.
  14. Fished the Canadian side out of Gananoque the first 2 weeks of June. My wife is handicapped, so we mostly perch fish. This year perch fishing was very poor. I started going out after dinner by myself looking for walleye or pike. I was trolling a worm harness behind a tadpole diver and picked up an 8 pounder in about 20 feet of water at 8:15 PM. After talking to my old Canadian friend, he told me years ago he used to get a lot of walleye casting to the rock shoals after dark. With that info I went back the next 2 nights and caught a 5 pounder each night. Had a Canadian friend each night, and they hooked up too. I was throwing a floating Rapala right up against the rocks and the ones that hit, hit almost immediately. This was the first fairly consistent pattern I've had walleye fishing on the river. It has mostly been hit or miss for me. My best previous walleye was taken trolling a rattling minnow in the middle of the day in about 10 feet of water. Go figure? I won't be back again until Sept and am anxious to see if I can repeat the pattern then. Finally got the pictures from my Canadian buddy. The one of me standing in the boat isn't that great, but it's a 28 inch fish at 8 Pounds. The next pictures was a couple 24 inch fish at 5 pounds a piece.
