how small? sandusky bay would be good for a small boat. as far as the lake i would not reccomend anything smaller than a deep 14 ftr. even for in close fishing. east harbor would be another good place for a small boat.

I have a 13 1/2 foot with a 9 1/2 horse and I have gone into Fairport Harbor and around the breakwall when conditions allow. I have also gone out of the Chagrin a couple times. Last week I trolled and got a couple walleye 19 and 17 inches in 41-43 FOW out in front of the Eastlake CEI plant. Afternoons into the evening after the wind dies down and the water is calm and no threat of storms, I think, would be OK. But ya still have to be careful. I wouldn't venture far from safe harbor.

me and a buddy of mine was fishing out in front of fairport harbor in my 14 ft semi-v aluminum boat. we was west of the light house in 37 fow and caught a 2 man limit of perch, we was a little ways out but that was as far as i wanted to go and i felt ok with the conditions of erie that day. the coast guard was out that day and was checking people and said the walleye was out deeper and i told him this was as far as i was going. just make sure the conditions are right before u adventure out past the break wall.

How small is your boat? If it is a 14 footer, then you have options depending on where you go. If it is a 12, do not go on the open lake.

for years they rented 14 foot metal boats with 10 HP motors at lakemont landing on a good day you would see them as far out as the Toledo water intake

The Bay Is Bigger Than Most Lakes. You Could Utilize Miller Ferry To Transport Car And Boat To South Bass. You Can Camp Or Rent Cottage On Island If There Are Vacancies.
