View Full Version : East of Rocky River 'eyes
06-09-2004, 04:53 PM
Went out last nite (6/8). Found a few eyes in close around dusk in 18-20' of water between Winton Place and Perkins Beach. Trolled Deep Jr. Thundersticks in chartreuse back/white belly off in-line boards 'til well after dark. Some just eaters (17"), one 26". Big one hit after dark. Nice evening to get a few. If I had come in close a bit earlier I suspect I would have had a few more in the box. Worked deeper (35') for a couple hours with stingers/dipseys with no luck. 8:30 p.m. started working in close... that's when I found 'em.

Were you in close enough where you think shore anglers could have gotten a few?

Actually Yes you would want to go to lakewood park I believe there is a walkway coming down a big hill and there is a whole area of flat concrete where you can stand and walk around, I caught that fish iin that other post in 15 foot of water no further than 50 yards from shore so if they where there they should be within casting distance.

Isn't the area down the hill from Lakewood park off-limits to fisherman? Last time I was down there (a few years ago), that area was closed.

While trollin' around I noticed a few guys standing on piers east of the gold coast. I don't know if it's public access but I would assume it's around the Perkins Beach area. It's been years since I've been to perkins on land so I don't know for sure.
I didn't notice anyone on the concrete at Lakewood Park. I would think that casting rattle traps and hot n tots would work around dusk and beyond. One thing's for sure, you won't know 'til you try. Make sure your baits have a rattle in 'em. I haven't had luck with harnesses after dark... only baits that make some noise. Hope you find access. Sorry I can't be of more help.
