we had 2 "big" fish for the weekend...and they weren't that big (considering Lake Erie has produced some hogs

lots of 16-19 inchers, but only 2 that broke the 20 inch mark


a 25 and 1/4 that weighed 5lbs 2 oz

and a 25 3/4 that weighed 6 lbs 1 oz

the second one was caught trolling a purple and black reef runner...the first on the now legendary purple hair jig


Just curious....anybody get the big ones? Saw Biteme got a 31 incher.....

I got a fat 25" eye that weighed in at 6lbs 11ozs, it was spawned out. If it wouldve had eggs it wouldve been 7.

Fished Sunday only,trolling SW of Gull, had 1 wide body 30"er spawned out 9-1/2 #, about half of the 14 fish were over 5.

One of those strange days went way too many come unbuttoned. (we dropped as many as we caught) Anyone else see this. Then too most that we caught came off in the net. Just one of those days when they really weren't taking it.

We were tipping with a pc of crawler.
