love fishing almost as a much as I love the gear.
I took my new boat out on the big lake last night. Launched out of the Sheffield Ramp. A buddy and I were just goofing off hoping to catch a few Smallie's and eventually went to the Lorain Light house and picked up a few off the rocks. Just a few dinks but fun just the same. I have not fished on Erie since I was a kid and there were some bugs that I am not familiar with. Thousands of small gnat like bugs (may even be gnats). Since I flunked out of my college entomology class I could not identify them, or more importantly how to keep them off of me. They didn't bite, they are just annoying and do not seem to respond to threats or swearing! can anyone tell me what they are? Are they always there or is it seasonal?
