Went out this morning about 4 miles out to do a little trolling we only got 1 eye. Were thinking about heading to the Buoy but we decided against it due to possible bad weather.Lots of junk fish time to get the perch gear out.
You went three and a half miles to far. Huge amounts of walleye are being taken in 18 to 22 FOW in front of Beaver Creek. Reef runners.....stagger the lines out and tighten them up once your pattern starts working.
pulled 11 last night fishing the same depths as crazylady. Most of our fish came in the deeper water though. Dipsys and inline weights with harnesses both produced. 1 setting 52 back with double willows was our best presentation.
We fished the area between Lorain & Beaver (2 of us). Fished 20 to 26 fow. Marked fish but could not get them going. Pulled 5 but it was really slow. All but one came on green flash RR 60 back at about 1.8 mph. Tried colorado harnesses on 2 oz inlines & hooked 4 but they all came unbuttoned so we switched over to all RR.
We had minnows with us and a we thought about trying for perch but from the chatter on the radio, the perching guys were not doing so good either so we kept at it.
I saw a few boats further out - sounds like that is where we should have been.
we saw 5 or 6 boats in real tight last night. There wasn't a boat anywhere near us last night. We ended up with two fish ohios our first fish was just shy of 30in and our last was 28. The rest of them between 18 and 24. Good night of fishing, not much junk barely used any gas.
only bad part was my buddy knocked a nice rod that I've had for 15+ years into the lake to never be found again. I guess it can be replaced though
If the weather forecast holds, Thurs & Fri look good and I will give it another go. If anyone is interested in working together I will be on channel 79 or you can PM me and we can swop cell-numbers (which work that close in )
looks like I'll be heading out of Beaver thurs as well...around 645 ish.... not sure what the guys wanna fish for yet...eyes or perch...but I'll be listening to ch79 for all of you out there! chromesteelhead (dave)
