    I talked to the launch guy at Hanover launch at the Cat on Monday. He said that last week, a couple of guys came in with 96 perch but the guys next to them had 16. I have heard of a few others that have hit them off the Cat a few weeks ago and saw people set up on the perch beds in 55' straight out when I came in. In my opinion, I think they were around because of the cold water upwelling in that area last week that drove the bait in followed by the perch. I did mark schools of something on the bottom in 75-80' but all the eyes I caught out there were spitting up smelt. I think those bottom fish were probably smelt and not perch. Good luck if you try and let us know.

    Erie is simply amazing this year. another two man limit in less than two hours. We were out of the Cat in 70+ . Harnesses out 5 and wire dipsey setting 3, 90' back did the trick.

    Great day out of buffalo today. Everyone had fish and we boxed out. From 40’ out to the fence. Lead core and harnesses worked the best.

    Oneida or Erie?

    I have a slightly smaller boat and fish both lakes. The time of year you are talking about is generally good for both and you should average about four or five fishable days a week on both lakes. If you want walleyes, NymphO is right on. I might add that you do not have to go to Barcelona to get them. There are a few state parks along the Erie shore for camping around the Cat and the fishing there is pretty good. If you do get a blow off day on Erie, you can take a short ride to the Niagara and catch bass or just visit the falls.

    Two really great catches I need your neighbor to take me out too😊

    Note Catt Walleye fishermen: Warning for Sunday

    I bet Miller and the boys sitting out in front of the bait shop will be impressed.

    Mono vs braid or nanofil

    I used everything except Kansan. At $45 you are not getting anything special. Nanofill and power pro have similar diameters for their pound test. My fingerlakes line is nanofill. I fish perch in clear water and need to cast as far as possible. The problem is wind knots. Just going to happen. For blade baits in Oneida, I’ll use power pro or fire line. 10 lb seaguar leader. Works great for laker jigging too.

    Inline Planer Boards

    I am not going to offer a solution because I don't know what you are doing exactly on your boat. All I can say is that I "play" around with the exact same boards on Erie this time of year. I did manage to get them out around the 50' mark with four colors on them last Friday. I don't thing putting the pin in is the problem because the first time I set them, I forgot to put the pin in on the starboard side and did not notice a difference. Maybe you should ask on LEU or walleye central. A lot of guys in the western basin use them all the time. As for me, as soon as the eyes move a little deeper, I'll salmon fish for them using the riggers and dipseys. Just a whole lot easier and, I think, more effective.

    Silver lake access

    Silver lake access

    There is a private pay launch at the north end of February Oatka st, rat 10. They do have a ramp. You would have to paddle down the creek a ways before getting to the lake. I would google it to check if you would like to paddle that distance first. Other than that, south end, state launch.

    Keuka fishing

    I know specifically of a good Crappie bite at a location in Keuka that occurs the third week in April yearly. This year, they had a smaller bite fully two weeks later than normal. The smallies will be on their beds for the opener if this keeps up. I’ll try again later this week

    Keuka fishing

    I fished yesterday and looked at temps from Morgan marine in Penn Yan south to a couple miles past the college. Temps ranged from 53 at Morgan to 56 south. The lake is about two weeks late. Only a few smaller male sunfish in the shallows, a couple rock bass and no smallies yet. There is no green growth to speak of.

    Keuka What happen to this guy?

    Keuka ? No muskie there, but I have taken two pike there recently over 12 lbs. and, there are a lot of fish eating birds there including eagles. Could be one of them.

    2018 walleye s

    Doing the same thing Kevin. 40 yrs in classroom for me though. I read that sea bass stocks are up and the season was extended. Still a 5 fish limit though. It opens the 19th. I might be there in early June..
