How's the walleye night bite been from shore lately? I was going to get out last night, but the water seemed pretty muddy. How much longer do you guys think we have before they are gone?

Archman,
Night bite has been terrific from Lorain to Huron from shore and by boat. Couple more weeks at best from shore. Water is stained this way, couple more days of SW wind and it will be fishable again.

Lundy43123,
Thanks for inviting me to the new site ! Didn't get out Saturday at all, baby came down with a bug so he got my attention over the walleye ! Can't wait until he's old enough to go fishing with me, has to be a memorable moment everytime you get out with your son. Looks like you did alright considering all the wind shifts. Take care and let me know when you plan your next trip up this way.

72nd Street last night: One 28" hen on floating firetiger Rapala, slow retrieve, about 10:15pm. Fought like a rubber boot full of water. I saw no others caught.
72nd Street Wednesday night: One 27.5" and one 29.5" hen on firetiger Rapala, slow retrieve, both around 9:00pm. I saw no others caught in my area.

Went down to Edgewater tonight, heard two fish were caught about 10:00. I had two solid hits, but didn't hook either one.

I went to 72nd Street again last night. Got another eye at about 9:15 or so. This one was smaller, only 24.5". It had a fresh 5.5" fish in its stomach along with a couple smaller ones. Not sure what they were. Not smelt, shiners, gobies, ruffe, or small bass. Blunt nose, large eyes. Fish caught on large firetiger Rapala look-alike.

72nd Street Friday night: two eyes 24" & 25" and lost a third one. Firetiger Bomber. I went to the breakwall at Grand River Sunday night for a little over an hour casting a Jerk, nothing.

I caught 2 on Saturday and Sundday night. The action was great until those storms way out there started kicking up the water last night. I hope this keeps up for another week or so.

Joe, what time did you stay til? I caught one on my 5th cast at 8:45, and then waited in my car for the storms to pass. I then caught 3 more at about 11:15 in a span of 20 minutes.

I caught three at 72nd Street last night. 28", 26", 24" all on firetiger Rapala. Very slow retrieve, just below the surface. All caught after the thunderstorm passed. They hit like bass on topwater and fought a little better than previous fish. I could see shad jumping and walleye chasing/hitting them on the surface once in a while, really cool. I tried a clown suspending Rattlin Rogue, a chartreuse jointed lure, and blue/silver floating Rattlin Rogue, but they wanted the firetiger Rapala.

I fished 72nd Street again last night, lost two and landed one 27" female. All hooked after the thunderstorm. Firetiger Rapala. Fish seemed less active than last night but I did some hitting surface bait.

We went out after the rain stopped, and saw about 10 fish on stringers that were just caught. We must have been bad luck because the bite completely shut off when we got out there.

Hopefully we all can have a good night to night. I think I'll be down at the edge about 8:00. The water getting a lot warmer. Not to much longer.

I prolly won't be doing the walleye tonight, my daughter just got her temp driving permit and I'm taking her somewhere to practice. After that I'll need sedation. I would go to the Eastlake wall if they didn't charge to fish. I'm only 5 min away but they'll not get my money.

Steelmagoo, do they catch walleye there in Eastlake this time of the year? You are right, they won't be getting my money either.
