Out by B can or directly north or Little Pickeral, that whole area 28-31' north of the reefs is holding fish. 45-75 back on Bandits earlier this week, then yesterday was HJ's 90-110 back, color combo all over but I would say purple/pink colors worked best overall, fairly fast speedsCan I ask you what area please,, I'm heading up there tomorrow morning, with my kid and would love to get on on some action...thanks..
6 miles give or take to b can or little pick...Would anybody mind telling me about how far B can or little pickerel are from shore? Or any of the reefs in that area. I've never fished erie and if the wind holds out was going to make the trip from PA. Wind forecast so far (which will probably change ) will be in the upper teens on Sunday out of the southish and not sure how far out i can go before the chop will suck.
Good report Jim. We had fun! Only thing I would add is:that while the majority of those fish were caught “in the vicinity of the pack” they were very definitely not caught “in the middle of the pack”. Don’t think you need to be in the middle of the pack to catch fish.It's been tuff, but they went today. Had our 18 by 10:30, but stayed and played. Bandits, Reefs, Mag 44s, Yozuris, dp Rogues, pretty much anything you could get 12-15' deep got attacked. Lures with single hook replacements worked well. Chromes were hot in the morning and worked all day but purples, greens, and Blues were good too. In the afternoon gin and tonic bandits couldn't be kept in the water. (that's gold with blue head and tail). Didn't keep a firm count, but estimated we handled 50 and usually that is light. The whole N side of the cans is good. A majority of the females have spawned. We had a blast.
The weather is not going to stay nice. This weekend will be sporty. Don't push your luck, stay safe. The water is still in the 40s, not a good time for questionable rigs.
