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.
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.
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.
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.
I have the night off tonight, anyone willing to hook up with me at edge and show me the ropes. I have never fished erie from shore, nor do I know how to get there, nor do I know what to bring. Basically I am one of those babby geese right now that need to be under mammas wing..haha....I live in the Akron/Cuyahoga Falls area and get off work at 5pm. Can anyone help me out????
p.s. you can either email me or PM me. Thanks guys...
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.
