Okay here goes! I have had this in my head for some time now but just didnít know how I was going to put it all together? Well here goes Ė
During the past few seasons I have gotten a lot of comments & even complaints on my opinions on why I do not troll for Lake Erie Walleyes? Believe me if trolling is your thing fine! But for someone who has been casting for walleyes for over 40 years itís the only thing I know. Just never felt the need to start trolling for walleyes. Where there days when fishing was tough? Sure But I also remember days when almost every cast got a fish. And this still happens now at times.
But there are plenty of Charters and recreational fisherman out on Erie who still prefer to cast and drift. I have made numerous posts on good days on Erie on this site only to have someone ask me what my program was? What depth where my lures what my speed was? And so on!
I know not all are regulars on this site but if they read anything that I posted they would know that I am a drift and cast Charter service only.
I had asked a mod a while back if I could have a drift and cast only thread and was told no! I understand that and have no problems with it. What my plans are to do in this thread is to help out all of those drift and casters on this site who need help to improve their skills to catch more fish.
Of course the best way would be to Book a trip with me or another Drift and cast service but with out doing that I will try to answer some of your questions here in this thread!
Some of the possible topics could be ---
Locations and movement of walleyes.
Lures and presentations to catch fish. How to cast on a boat.
Learning how to read your fish finders and Gps.
What type of rods & reels and fishing line to use?
Types of lures.
How to make casting and drifting harnesses.
I will leave it up to the readers of this thread to ask away?
