I am lookin for any tips to get into steelhead near Avon Point. I usually fish steel on the North shore near Wheatley but they are running about 2 weeks behind due to weather. Any tips are appreciated.
Steelhead have been caught due north of Hotwaters in 45 to 55 FOW. Not a lot of fish but I'm sure there would be more if they were being targeted. The walleye reports have shared this information over the past couple weeks.
Go to deeper water and a little further east and you should be able to score on steelhead.
Spoontag , I posted a report from Avon on monday it is on the previous page.
We went 12-13 miles northeast from the miller road ramp. 66 fow. Trolled 2.5 spoons one side harnesses the other. Did real good on the walleye but only got 1 steelhead. I think if a guy went further out. Kept his speed up a little higher and ran all spoons. Steelhead are there waiting. I very well may be out there Saturday again. There was not another boat in sight last week. Good Luck and please post how you do.
Beerbatter I'll be launching out of Miller Road ramp on Sun. Give me a shout if you go out Sat. and have any luck. I've never fished that area but have some friends and family that are going to the beach there so I'm fishing
I was out on Monday N NW of the crib near the "dumping grounds", not quite as far west as Avon Point. It was a roller coaster ride. I should have known when there were NO trailers in the lot to cut my losses early. Trolled for 2 hours in the waves, in around 60 FOW. Tried downriggers and dipsies, couldn't get anything going. Too much bouncing around to have much fun, especially since I couldn't find any fish that were interested in biting. Caught some white bass and sheep but no walleye or steel.
I'm thinking about fishing tomorrow morning out of Cleveland, you interested? Give me a call. I've been checking the Wheatley reports and they look kind of slow right now but I'm itching to get back up there.
Go off lorain 40/10 line or straight out of the rocky river between 63-68fow. weve landed all our steelhead this year on walleye rigs- when weve put together trout rigs, nothing. riggers and dipsy's copper or silver cups. 30-50 on the riggers. 100-130 back on dipsys.
