On the water today with lines set at 4pm 10 miles nw of ashtabula 72fow.Had the place to ourselves with literally not a boat in sight the entire evening.Made 1 long troll back towards bula and had a steady pick going..nothing fast and furious enough to make us turn around.Ran 3 oz 93 to 108 back and #3 divers 95 and 108 back...all harnesses and meat.The 2 divers we had out caught majority of the fish. Custom Eyecandy and purple demon were in the net the most tonight both have pink backs. Ran 2 boards and 1 diver per side but should have reversed it, but the pick was steady so we kepy with it.would have finished sooner with a few more divers I'm sure.
Captured our 3 man limit by 845pm and tossed back a few at the end.Had an enjoyable evening as the lake was perfect and went flat for the ride in.Enjoy the pics!!
purple demon...been hot since back at the islands this spring,say cheese
Capt. Jeff was great out there tonight, he got us our 3 man ticket in about 4 hrs in about 95 degree heat. We had a blast out there picking some very big fish tonight. It was nice to sit back and fish off someone elses boat ( less work for me ) for once.
Jeff you did a great job out there to find the fish. Hats off to you Bud.
We took some great fish out there as you can see.
Jeff has taught me so much about this walleye game, I just want to give him a quick thanks... it was great getting out with you.. fish were a bonus.
If you need a charter, he will find you those big Bula eyes that we all love.
"You'd think that after years and years of doing the same old thing thing on Lake Erie, that this walleye fishing would get old...But, it never does..."
Well not sure if those baits are top secret or not! LOL But if not Id sure like more info on "Custom Eyecandy and purple demon both have pink backs".Any one have some close up pics maybe specs? blade,bead size ,colors, hook types and size. Also what are you using for line and what weight.
Tied some pink and chartreuse Colorados up for my buddy to use the other day. And talked him into trying them with inline weight and divers. He is a old time big spoon man! Well he come back pretty excited. Seems my harness'es hammered them. Now they did lose one large one at the boat because oh a broken hook. But he said the newbies were using needle nose pliers and could have weakened them. Not sure why they'd break other wise. They were #2 Stamina red walleye hooks. Very sharp and an octopus style. Went to tie more but need to get some good line. I have some vanish fluorocarbon from Berkeley. But its 10 lb and may be a little light for the large eyes.I wouldn't be afraid of it for me,but find too many people crank drags down so tight you need to go bigger.
Sorry for hijacking this thread. But those spinners have me curious and wanting to tie some. Like I said if its not a secret lure that is.
Keep posting that fish porn guys. Makes me miss it all that much more but love seeing it.
tight lines all!
