we got out about 9am and done around 12:30pm. nothing hot and heavy, just steady fish. we didn't mark large amounts, just small pods. if your fishing ashtabula go north to the 05 line and start there. we picked up all, yes all of the fish trolling north. nothing in any other direction. found a pod of very nice size eyes and kept looping thru it. we got 12 eyes and a 6 pound steelhead(bloody nose stinger). chartruse pooh bear was the spoon early and gold kervorkein and a silver blue edge were the limit fillers:D all michigan stingers again, nothing else caught a fish. ran rip sticks(700's), little rippers, dreamweavers, northern kings... nothing but stingers working today??? we were in 72 fow and trolling at 2.5 most of the time. #1 dipsy at 250 caught 10 of the 12 fish. strange bite today they were picky. looked like storms, only sprinkled and was smooth trolling today. 1st photo is the 1st fish of the day, just shy of 8lbs. it was a 14 mile run out.

Nice! Did you try harnesses? They worked very well for us last Sunday. By the way, stop procrastinating and try Geneva sometime. :p

Nice fish EZ

Michigan stingers have put a lot of fish in the boat for me too.

Gander Mtn in Niles carried a great selection last season.

This year they've only got a few. The're carying contender spoons now.

Look a lot like stingers. I picked up four last time there but haven't had a chance to try them yet.

Great job! Monday we marked them steadily all over, and they were hugging the bottom. Good thing the weather gave you a break today.

thanks for all the replys.. it was probably our best day on erie this year for size and speed to the limit. its not about always filling the cooler, but it is nice to do it once in awhile quickly:p :D

workdog, buddy we were fishing geneva.. we just launched at bula.LOL..

TMK. get out to gander. they have a new shipment in. tons of everything. lots of stingers, scorpions, fishlanders, dreamweavers, northern kings, contenerds and some gander mtn brand spoons. this year i think they listened to the request for a bigger selection of spoons.
