    Anyone been out lately? Just wondering if anyone is catching anything lately. If so, where abouts are they hanging out?

    Anyone fish Ruggles lately?

    I fished the Kelley's Island area on Sunday and ended up with about 10 fish but nothing real big. Biggest was 3.1.

    I have people coming up from out of town that have never fished Lake Erie before and just want to be able to put them on some fish.

    I don't target smallies but I catch several a year trolling for eyes in the Ruggles area. Caught one Monday evening over 6lbs. trolling a 1/4 oz. Hot N Tot, flatlined 100 ft. back in 21 fow just west of Cranberry Creek. Like I said I don't target them but over the last several years I don't think I have caught a smallmouth less than 4 lbs. off Ruggles, there are some real brutes in there ! Give Woody a call over at Cranberry or check out his website, he will give you the latest report from the guys that specifically target them. Good luck.
